  • Happy birthday

    You ain't gotta question it
    You already know the answer
    The truth don't make us relevant
    Hurts but it's necessary
    Don't want us to lose what we are
    Don't want us to lose what we are
    Lose what we are

    If it ain't broke then we don't need to fix it
    Believing in what she say'll have you livid
    Know they won't be happy 'til our love is over
    They tryna break us up but you don't wanna get it

    They ain't never had your back like how I got it
    They ain't never had a chance how we got it
    So they can't help but to come and hate on it
    They see what we got and you know they want it

    Don't question it
    You ain't gotta question it
    You already know the answer
    The truth don't make us relevant
    Hurts but it's necessary
    Don't want us to lose what we are
    Don't want us to lose what we are
    Lose what we are

    It's like you're always looking for a problem
    The raining of equations for you to solve 'em
    So quick to turn nothin' right into somethin'
    Get the numbers out my phone, go 'head and call 'em

    They ain't never had my back like you got it
    They ain't never had a chance how you got it
    So they can't help but to come and hate on it
    They see what we got and you know they want it

    Don't question it
    You ain't gotta question it (oh)
    You already know the answer (already know the answer)
    The truth don't make us relevant (the truth don't make us relevant)
    Hurts but it's necessary (yeah)
    Don't want us to lose what we are
    Don't wanna lose, no
    Don't want us to lose what we are (yeah)
    Lose what we are (yeah)

    She texts me "How's you love life?"
    And "How are you?", I said "I'm good"
    They only get as close as you allow them to
    We should be closer together, warm oceans, better weather
    Instead of us playing games forever, she says whatever
    I says whatever, who get you wetter than a half moon wearer
    History sweater, serendipity when you with me
    Swear you love that one thing we did that one time in that one place
    Blew your mind, you got my mind going when I'm home
    I'm serious girl, a much older dude, a whole forty-two
    I've accomplished my goals, it's only you
    You and I in that wraith, retire my pimp super-fly cape
    Just my Mets cap and my badge and I'm straight, Esco

    Don't question it
    You ain't gotta question it (oh)
    You already know the answer (you already know the answer)
    The truth don't make us relevant (the truth don't make us relevant)
    It hurts but it's necessary (yeah)
    Don't want us lose what we are
    Don't wanna lose no
    Don't want us lose what we are (we can't lose, nah, nah)
    Lose what we are (uh) Writer/s: Andre Harris, Donovan Knight, Jason Boyd, Justin Bieber, Nasir Jones
