  • Who wants that perfect love story anyway, anyway
    Cliché, cliché, cliché, cliché
    Who wants that hero love that saves the day, anyway
    Cliché, cliché, cliché, cliché

    What about the bad guy goes good, yea
    And the missing love that's misunderstood, yea
    Black hour glass, our glass toast to clichés in a dark past
    Toast to clichés in a dark past

    Boy meets girl
    Girl perfect women
    Girl get the bustin' before the cops come running uh
    Chucking deuces, chugging D'USSE
    Fuck what you say, boys in blue say uh

    I don't care if we on the run
    Baby as long as I'm next to you
    And if loving you is a crime
    Tell me why do I bring out the best in you
    I hear sirens while we make love
    Loud as hell but they don't know
    They're nowhere near us
    I will hold your heart and your gun
    I don't care if they come, no
    I know it's crazy but
    They can take me
    Now that I found the places that you take, take me
    Without you I got nothing to lose

    I'm an outlaw, got an outlaw chick
    Bumping 2Pac, on my outlaw shit
    Matching tatts, this ink don't come off
    Even if rings come off
    If things ring off
    My nails get dirty
    My past ain't pretty, my lady is, my Mercedes is
    My baby momma harder than a lot of you niggas
    Keep it 100, hit the lottery niggas
    You ain't about that life ain't gotta lie to me, nigga
    You know it's 'til the death, I hope it obvi' to niggas
    Uh cross the line, speak about mine
    I'mma wave this TEC, I'm a geek about mine
    Touch a nigga where his rib at, I click clat
    Push your ma'fucka wig back, I did that
    I been wilding since a juvi'
    She was a good girl till she knew me
    Now she is in the drop bustin' U-ies screaming

    Take me
    Now that I found the places that you take, take me
    Without you I got nothing to lose

    Deeper then words, beyond right
    Die for your love, beyond life
    Sweet as a Jesus piece, beyond ice
    Blind me baby with your neon lights
    Ray Bans on, police in sight
    Oh, what a beautiful death
    Let's both wear white
    If you go to heaven and they bring me to hell
    Just sneak out and meet me, bring a box of L's
    She fell in love with the bad guy, the bad guy
    What you doing with them rap guys, them rap guys
    They ain't see potential in me girl, but you see it
    If it's me and you against the world, then so be it uh

    I don't care if they give me life
    I get all of my life from you
    And if loving you had a price
    I would pay my life for you

    I hear sirens while we make love
    Loud as hell but they don't know
    They're nowhere near us
    I will hold your heart and your gun
    I don't care if they come, no
    I know it's crazy but

    I don't care I'll never give it up
    Give it up, give it up, give it all away
    No I swear I'll never give it up
    Give it up, give it up, give it all away
    I don't care I'll never give it up
    Give it up, give it up, give it all away
    No I swear I'll never give it up
    Give it up, give it up, give it all away
