  • Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
    Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
    Yeah, look

    I don't know how to talk to you
    I don't know how to ask you if you're okay
    My friends always feel the need to tell me things
    Seems like they're just happier than us these days
    Yeah, these days I don't know how to talk to you
    I don't know how to be there when you need me
    It feels like the only time you see me
    Is when you turn your head to the side and look at me differently

    Yeah, and last night I think I lost my patience
    Last night I got high as the expectations
    Last night, I came to a realization
    And I hope you can take it
    I hope you can take it

    I'm too good to you
    I'm way too good to you
    You take my love for granted
    I just don't understand it
    No, I'm too good to you
    I'm way too good to you
    You take my love for granted
    I just don't understand it

    I don't know how to talk to you
    I just know I found myself getting lost with you
    Lately you just make me work too hard for you
    Got me on flights overseas, and I still can't get across to you

    And last night I think I lost my patience
    Last night I got high as the expectations
    Last night, I came to a realization
    And I hope you can take it
    I hope you can take it

    I'm too good to you
    I'm way too good to you
    You take my love for granted
    I just don't understand it
    No, I'm too good to you
    I'm way too good to you
    You take my love for granted
    I just don't understand it

    Years go by too fast
    I can't keep track
    How long did we last?
    I feel bad for asking
    It can't end like this
    We gotta take time with this
    Cock up yuh bumper, sit down pon it
    Let me see if this is something I can fix
    You got somebody other than me
    Don't play the victim when you're with me
    Free time is costing me more than it seems
    Sacrificing things
    And I wanna tell you my intentions
    I wanna do the things that I mention
    I wanna benefit from the friendship
    I wanna get the late night message from you, from you
    I put my hands around you
    Gotta get a handle on you
    Gotta get a handle on the fact that

    I'm too good to you
    I'm way too good to you
    You take my love for granted
    I just don't understand it
    No, I'm too good to you
    I'm way too good to you
    You take my love for granted
    I just don't understand it

    Gyal a you mi waan
    Pay fi yuh visa meck yo fly out regular
    Baby, cock up yuh bumper, sit down pon it
    Gyal yo pum pum good and yuh fit
    Mi wi give you everything weh deh in my wallet
    And in my pocket
    Cock up yuh bumper, sit down pon it
    Gyal yo pum pum good and yuh fit
    Mi wi give you everything weh deh in my wallet
    And in my pocket Writer/s: A Martin, Aubrey Drake Graham, Dwayne Richard Chin-Quee, Maneesh Bidaye, Paul Jefferies, Robyn Fenty
