  • (Pipe that shit up, TnT)
    These mixed signals, mixed signals, they're killin' me
    I don't know what you want, but I know what I need
    The 'goodbyes', the 'hellos', the 'I need you' 'no I don't'
    Every time I start to close the door, you knock and I let you in
    Lovin' you is my greatest sin
    Lovin' you is my greatest sin
    Lovin' you is my greatest sin

    I don't know why I love you
    I don't know why I stay
    Yeah, yeah
    I don't know if it's worth it, babe

    Look, uh
    Sorry I missed your call, I was on a jet
    I been so zoned out, tryna figure out what's next
    So scared to fail, I'm calculatin' my every step (yeah)
    Gotta watch my back and keep my strap, but nonetheless (nonetheless)
    I think about you when I'm gone (yeah), wishin' I could hold you
    Probably home, wishin' someone come and love you how they 'posed to
    And I hope you see this letter 'fore it's too late (yeah)
    I hope chasin' my dreams don't get in the way
    I blame my struggles and my uncles for my hustlin' ways
    I'm way in Michigan right now, lookin' at real estate
    Lord knows I wanna lay ya down but I'm chasin' cake
    Can't go back broke, stay on the go, that's all that's on my brain

    She tell me fuck you, I hate you (I don't know why I love you)
    Then I love you, can't blame you (I don't know why I stay) (blame you)
    She say I love you, but don't trust you, can't change you (I don't know if it's worth it)
    I just hope we don't end how they do (You know how they be on that front)
    Crash and burn on The Shaderoom

    Street runner, gotta stop runnin' sometimes (yeah)
    I'm in your city tonight (yeah)
    And these lights (these lights), make me feel so inspired (yeah)
    Goin' higher and higher and higher (yeah, yeah yeah)
    Takin' me higher (takin' me higher, takin' me higher, takin' me higher)
    Higher and higher and higher (yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah)

    Hey, I'm kinda glad that you didn't pick up (yeah)
    I kinda just called to hear your voice, so
    Your voice recording was enough
    Uh, I should hang up, what am I doin'? Um
    So uh, I feel kinda dumb, but uh
    I miss you, I've been thinkin' about you
    And I've been thinkin' about our love and how much I miss your touch
    I miss bein' around you, hearin' your laugh and holdin' your hand
    I think of you every day
    I hope and I wish that you're doin' okay
    I want us to go back to the old days
    Because, I miss you, and I just thought of you, so I thought I'd call you
    To tell you that you crossed my mind
    And I took that as a sign, that I should call and say hi
    So that's all, hi
    And I hope you don't think I've lost my mind, I hope you don't think I'm crazy
    This message is gettin' long so I just say bye, but
    The idea of you listenin' to this, the thought of you on the other side of the line
    I'm in your city tonight
    And these lights make me feel so inspired (I can't hang up)
    You ain't higher and higher and higher Writer/s: Joel Little, Lukas Payne, Rodarius M Green, Ruth Berhe, Sterling Reynolds, Thomas Horton
