For The Record

  • For the record
    You oughta know
    You wasn't thinking
    When you let me go

    But whatever
    That's how it goes
    Win some you lose some
    And others you hold in your heart

    Why it gets so hard
    Tears you all apart
    Even though you try to let go
    No, no, no

    Suddenly you're here
    And it's so surreal
    And I don't know
    What the deal

    'Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
    Feels like the first time
    Give me one good reason why
    We can't just press rewind

    I don't wanna spend my life
    Thinking what it could've been like
    If we had another try (one time)
    Like back in the day
    That look on your face
    Feels like, the first time

    Them other irregularities
    They can't compete with MC
    The whole entire world can tell
    That you love yourself some me

    People see ya know
    Asking all about
    Me and how they always thought we
    Were so perfect together

    Let's re-write the end
    Start over again
    And it's gon go better now

    'Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
    Feels like the first time
    Give me one good reason why
    We can't just press rewind

    I don't wanna spend my life
    Thinking what it could've been like
    If we had another try (one time)
    Like back in the day
    That look on your face
    Feels like, the first time

    For the record
    You'll always be a part of me
    No matter what you do
    And for the record
    Can't nobody say
    I didn't give my all to you

    And for the record
    I told you underneath the stars
    That you belong to me
    For the record
    It's obvious that
    We just can't let go of us, honey

    'Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
    Feels like the first time
    Give me one good reason why
    We can't just press rewind

    I don't wanna spend my life
    Thinking what it could've been like
    If we had another try (one time)
    Like back in the day
    That look on your face
    Feels like, the first time

    'Cause when I'm looking in your eyes
    Feels like the first time
    Give me one good reason why
    We can't just press rewind

    I don't wanna spend my life
    Thinking what it could've been like
    If we had another try (one time)
    Like back in the day
    That look on your face
    Feels like the first time

    For the record, baby
