Don't

Album: x (2014)
Charted: 8 9
  • Hit the corner, burnin' rubber like a stunt driver
    Burning marijuana, bitch, I'm a bit liver
    Gotta keep a bitch in check, microphone check
    Killed your boy's career, still no arrest yet
    Snow white yacht in my red Yeezys
    Ed Sheeran got the city streets tweakin'
    On a back block you may catch the boss
    M-cig, love to vape so we liftin' off
    With a weapon, go to steppin' like I'm Kevin Spacey
    No prom date, women they would love to hate me
    It's such a pretty thing, life is such a bitch
    Went to sleep as friends, waking up to this
    See it my way or see me at the top
    Built an empire, bitch, off a nickel rock
    Microphone check, microphone check
    We came to party, smoke until there's nothing left

    I met this girl late last year
    She said "don't you worry if I disappear"
    I told her I'm not really looking for another mistake
    I called an old friend thinking that the trouble would wait
    But then I jumped right in a week later and returned
    I reckon she was only looking for a lover to burn
    But I gave her my time for two or three nights
    Then I put it on pause until the moment was right
    I went away for months until our paths crossed again
    She told me "I was never looking for a friend
    Maybe you could swing by my room around ten
    Baby, bring the lemon and a bottle of gin
    We'll be in between the sheets 'til the late AM
    Baby, if you wanted me then should have just said, she's singing

    Don't fuck with my love
    That heart is so cold
    All over my arm
    I don't wanna know that babe
    Don't fuck with my love
    I told her she knows
    Take aim and reload
    I don't wanna know that babe

    And for a couple weeks I only wanna see her
    We drink away the days with a takeaway pizza
    Before a text message was the only way to reach her
    Now she's staying at my place and loves the way I treat her
    Singing out Aretha, all over the track like a feature
    And never wants to sleep, but guess that I don't want to either
    But me and her, we make money the same way
    Four cities, two planes, the same day
    And those shows have never been what it's about
    But maybe we'll go together and just figure it out
    I'd rather put on a film with you and sit on a couch
    But we should get on a plane or we'll be missing it now
    Wish I'd have written it down, the way that things played out
    When she was kissing him, how I was confused about
    Now she should figure it out, while I'm sat here singing

    Don't fuck with my love
    That heart is so cold
    All over my arm
    I don't wanna know that babe
    Don't fuck with my love
    I told her she knows
    Take aim and reload
    I don't wanna know that babe

    On my hotel door
    I don't even know if she knows what for
    She was crying on my shoulder, I already told ya
    Trust and respect is what we do this for
    I never intended to be next
    But you didn't need to take him to bed, that's all
    And I never saw him as a threat
    Until you disappeared with him to have sex, of course
    It's not like we were both on tour
    We were staying on the same fucking hotel floor
    And I wasn't looking for a promise or commitment
    But it was never just fun, and I thought you were different
    This is not the way you realised what you wanted
    It's a bit too much, too late if I'm honest
    And all this time, God knows I'm singing

    Don't fuck with my love
    That heart is so cold
    All over my arm
    I don't wanna know that babe
    Don't fuck with my love
    I told her she knows
    Take aim and reload
    I don't wanna know that babe

    Don't fuck with my love
    That heart is so cold
    All over my arm
    I don't wanna know that babe
    Don't fuck with my love
    I told her she knows
    Take aim and reload
    I don't wanna know that babe Writer/s: Benjamin Joseph Levin, Raphael Saadiq, Ali Shaheed Jones-Muhammad, Edward Christopher Sheeran, Dawn Sherrice Robinson, Conesha Monet Owens
