  • When you're alone at night and need somebody by your side
    No matter wrong or right sayin' it's gonna be alright
    No one'll hold you tight, no one'll look you in your eyes
    As if it ain't okay to cry, try to be the tough guy
    Think about you all the time, start to feel it backfire
    No one love you like I, hope our love ain't expire
    Tryna figure out why, dyin' on the inside
    One day I'll get over my pride

    I knew I loved you when I met you, some say this don't exist
    Emotions captured out there, don't even care who you was with
    In your apartment, off of Seager, had a brief disagreement
    You moved back to Houston, we went like three years without speakin'
    I got back on drugs, bad, while I was still chasin' cheddar
    My heart was broke, soft and stressin' batter with my depression
    On top of that my team was shittin' on me harder than ever
    Not a worry in the world whenever we was together
    I flew you out to Miami, we laid up in the suites
    Bathtub full of fruits while I was rubbin' your feet
    We went to Bloomingdales, I bought us matchin' grey Theory sweats
    Said I ain't want you to leave before you boarded the jet

    When you're alone at night and need somebody by your side
    No matter wrong or right sayin' it's gonna be alright
    No one'll hold you tight, no one'll look you in your eyes
    As if it ain't okay to cry, try to be the tough guy
    Think about you all the time, start to feel it backfire
    No one love you like I, hope our love ain't expire
    Tryna figure out why, dyin' on the inside
    One day I'll get over my pride

    Shoutout to Nard that's my personal trainer
    He cool with you because of you I now treat him like a stranger
    Big booty Shelby I know things ain't work with me and your sister
    Best of what life has to offer love, you still my little sister
    Pull up in vent setter engine, they speed tip-tronic transmission
    Fill the Porsche reminicisin'
    Wishin' you was here with me
    I used to to tease you 'bout your feet
    We would laugh and we'd giggle
    And havin' breakfast on the beach
    You don't know how much that meant to me
    Holdin' hands and havin' tour the mall, public affection
    When you and me don't need no bodyguard, I'm your protector
    Facetime, I can't wait until you call me, you special
    You had that problem, now that problem solved, he won't disrespect you
    Un-uhhhh, not ever

    When you're alone at night and need somebody by your side
    No matter wrong or right sayin' it's gonna be alright
    No one'll hold you tight, no one'll look you in your eyes
    As if it ain't okay to cry, try to be the tough guy
    Think about you all the time, start to feel it backfire
    No one love you like I, hope our love ain't expire
    Tryna figure out why, dyin' on the inside
    One day I'll get over my pride

    I not ever love, not ever
    You know I never love, not ever
    No-one respect you like
    Kill someone if someone disrespect you love
    I see you lookin' at mine girl
    Yeah she a fine girl
    Yeah I love the way you whine girl
    Thought she from the islands she be ooh
    And ain't no lookin' at my girl Writer/s: KEVIN GILYARD, MATTHEW PAISLEY-MALIA
