    That little grey area
    Yo

    It's hard to talk about somethin' that I don't believe in
    L-O-V-E, can you tell me what's the meanin'? I been dreamin'
    How the fuck was you that deceitful? I didn't see it
    Hard for me to paint a picture, you'll just have to meet him
    Gave my all to you, wanted to give more to you
    Should've been honest with yourself, nobody was forcin' you
    I ain't even mad that you chalk, I'm just mad at me
    Should've known better, mommy taught me better strategies
    Still it burns, guess it's a blessing and a curse
    Life goes on, this another lesson learned
    Mind switched on, you can hear it in a verse, right?
    B will never know how much it really hurts
    Images so vivid, so clear, oh my, dear
    You have no idea who I know here
    Think fast, be on your A game
    Silly for me to think we was on the same page
    You really don't know anybody these days
    She stays for his sake, a sweet face
    Mind spinnin', the clock tickin', my soul missin'
    Did well to convince me that your soul different
    Give someone an inch and they will take a mile
    It might take a while
    Now I see you've approached this in a faker style
    This must be the apocalypse, feels like the world's ending
    Who am I? I'm a mess, more sinning, more spending
    More down days tryna make it through the seventh
    Can't believe I almost got rid of my independence
    Type of fuckery will have you look at yourself and start second guessin'
    Now I'm on crud like shit will get messy if you ever get to testin'
    But really I'm a sensitive soul and I'll stress it
    What happens when someone takes advantage of that?
    Lost part of myself, and I can't get her back

    Oh, my love, I been waiting
    For you to run back home, oh
    Oh, my love, I been investigating
    If you went and found new love, oh

    How the fuck you get twang, Simz? You smarter than that
    But you don't see it when you're in it, that's the hardest of facts
    I can't relax, my heart racin'
    Remember when I heard the news, I just couldn't face it
    If we ever talk again, it's on a last name basis
    I know where to place you
    I'm just tryna understand it
    I don't wanna hear you
    Guess you had to do what you had to do
    But just know nobody rates you
    Key word in all of this is you
    I wonder what I did for me, I hardly remember me
    What a waste of chemistry, energy and empathy
    Wonder when you plan to let me know about her pregnancy
    You have no integrity, emotion or respect for me
    Clearly wasn't meant to be
    This was temporary
    This the clearest I've seen it, was bound to end eventually
    Still it hurts tremendously, can't bear the intensity

    Oh, my love, I been waiting
    For you to run back home, oh
    Oh, my love, I been investigating
    If you went and found new love, oh

    I kept quiet 'bout the situation
    But now I'm sayin' my piece, though
    Nothing lasts forever
    There's me acting like I didn't know
    I can't do relationships for Instagram
    Posing like my life is perfect, really it's the opposite
    Lately I been down a lot
    I talk to no one about it
    Can't even write about it, damn this writer's block
    Hittin' me like never before, still I record
    Been in the raw, smokin' just to take my mind all off
    Everything that I should've been mindful of
    Everything that I've enjoyed in life, I'm a survivor of
    Making sure to understand the small print 'fore I sign it off
    You was meant to be in my Grammy speech, your entire loss
    I'll just keep it real, truth won't be concealed
    Please don't listen to this and ask me if I'm hurtin' or if I'm okay
    Allow me to be human and be in my feels
    Chill, I'm good, I got it
    I never lost it
    Or am I just lying to myself to skip the topic?

    La-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la, la-la

    Oh, my love, I been waiting
    For you to run back home, oh
    Oh, my love, I been investigating
    If you went and found new love, oh
    Oh, my love, I been waiting
    For you to run back home, oh
    Oh, my love, I been investigating
    If you went and found new love, oh

    Your heart cries at night alone
