Talk A Good Game

Album: Talk A Good Game (2013)
  • Oh
    Oh

    You talk a good game
    Oh
    I really wanna believe you
    Oh oh
    But I got questions in my head like
    Is it true? What to do?
    I don't wanna see myself
    Played a fool, baby ooh
    Uh uh
    No way, I prefer you keep it real with me

    'Cause I, I
    I don't think I could take, another broken promise
    Why do things the hard way, when you can just be honest
    And Imma do what I'm supposed to do, if you tell me you got us
    Why do things the hard way? (hard way, hard way)

    'Cause if you give me your love then I give you mines back
    If you get to acting up I cut you off like that
    I, don't think I could take another broken promise
    Why do things the hard way? (Hard way, hard way)

    If love, is free
    And talk, is cheap
    Don't make me pay for all your mistakes boy
    Finally go, just be free
    Thought you'd get to know me
    Don't tell the same stories

    You talk a good game
    Oh
    I really wanna believe you (ooh)
    Oh oh

    Don't think I could take another broken promise
    Why do things the hard way, when you can just be honest
    And Imma do what I'm supposed to do, if you tell me you got us
    Why do things the hard way? (hard way, hard way)

    'Cause if you give me your love then I give you mines back
    If you get to acting up I cut you off like that
    I, don't think I could take another broken promise
    Why do things the hard way? (Hard way, hard way)

    Promises and promises you say they all counterfeit
    If we start off telling lies, does loving never amount to shit?
    You really think me, I'm the one? Or you just like the sound of it?
    If the motive's all wrong, heartaches what you bound to get
    Give me one shot, let a ball quit
    Imma kill it girl,
    Full clip you wearing all white, I'm in all black
    We standing by the boardpit
    You say I do, I say I do, I'm tired of all the bullshit

    I don't think I could take another broken promise
    Why do things the hard way when you can just be honest
    And Imma do what I'm supposed to do if you tell me you got us
    Why do things the hard way? (Hard way, hard way)

    'Cause if you give me your love then I give you mines back
    If you get to acting up I cut you off like that
    I, don't think I could take another broken promise
    Why do things the hard way? (Hard way, hard way)
