  • Girl you gimme writers block
    I'm at a loss for words
    My minds as lost as yours
    I rack my brain but still no thoughts emerge
    Never seen no ass as large as yours, how much that cost?
    That's what I call a awful splurge
    You drive me bonkers I'm about to get my swerve on for sure
    Thought I was pimpin' until I felt like Nas, the first date
    Because I think I gave you power when I gave you flowers
    And I bought us a box of chocolates, no lozenges or cough drops and 'certs
    Probably should of never let me call that job of yours
    To talk to your boss and ask him if you can take off from work
    Should of been one of the first signs that caused alert
    Man we jumped in too fast, 'cause since then I can't be apart from her
    'Cause nobodies body's awesomer, I lust it, and she loves me 'cause I'm popular, but

    You know this ain't love
    Oh no, no this ain't love
    You know this ain't love
    You know this ain't love (What is it then?) It's desperation

    She's lookin' for Mr. Right, wants me to be that guy to her
    (It's desperation)
    I can't even put up a fight, 'cause I give in at the sight of her (And here I go again)

    Well obviously, oblivious to me, I swore I was just invisible to you
    'Til I went to the lengths I did to meet you
    'Cause you played so hard to get with me from the beginning
    Now I'm in disbelief I, never knew that this could be such misery
    'Cause now you see nothin' but me, and I don't see nothin' but you
    And I'm about to flip 'cause we are super glued in
    We stuck to each others hips and we can't do anything individually
    Which is to cling on, scared to be alone, can't, specifically to describe it
    I just can't seem to give a reason this definitive, just need you
    Talkin' bout "I live and breathe you"
    And you pretend to be as mentally and physically addicted to me
    As Wiz Khalifa is to reefer
    Don't wanna be without you, don't wanna be with you neither, bitch
    Put me in a situation in which it's both I wish to seek, 'cause this ain't

    You know this ain't love
    Oh no, no this ain't love
    You know this ain't love
    You know this ain't love (What is it then?) It's desperation

    She's lookin' for Mr. Right, wants me to be that guy to her
    (It's desperation)
    I can't even put up a fight, 'cause I give in at the sight of her (And here I go again)

    Just want you to myself, don't wanna share you with no one else
    What the fuck you whispering for? You get on my nerves, you make me sick
    I think our relationship, it seems to be on the fritz
    I mean it's time that we just split and leave the games behind
    Your frame of mind ain't the same as mine,
    I think you need to finish developing a little more mentally too, get the picture?
    That's a negative, Alicia, I will never give the Keys up
    To the crib, ever again, no reason not even a gift certificate from Tiffany's
    You better have an epiphany, slut, guess what? What? The lease up
    I'm just mad the time it took to discover
    You were using me for loot like I used you for looks
    Hoe thought you was too good for me, huh? 'Til you choosed to be my Carrie Underwood, I was your lumberjack,
    But I can't stomach this I'm leavin' you, I'm not comin' back
    She said "The fuck with that
    Where's my Louisville Slugger at?"
    She grabbed that fuckin' bat and swung it at my head
    I barely ducked and that's technique
    She came up with a kick to the nuts twice
    Steel toe, it would of put a hundred yard field goal, through the uprights

    You know this ain't love
    Oh no, no this ain't love
    You know this ain't love
    You know this ain't love (What is it then?) It's desperation

    She's lookin' for Mr. Right, wants me to be that guy to her
    (It's desperation)
    I can't even put up a fight, 'cause I give in at the sight of her (And here I go again) It's desperation Writer/s: Alexander Junior Grant, Jamie N. Commons, Marshall B. Mathers III
