    It's not time to get started
    It's time to call it off

    I've been trying to find a reason to keep us together
    Try to make up my bed of lies
    And call the night my shelter

    It's time to call it off
    And this time, it's not my fault

    (What time is it?)
    It's time to walk out the door
    It's time to get goin'
    It's time to walk out the door
    It's time to

    You tried to blindfold me
    From the pain you breathe
    And you said you'd never leave
    Yeah I'd been blamin' myself, question my mental health
    Like I'm the one who needed questioning

    It's time to call it off
    And this time, it's not my fault

    It's time to call it off
    And this time, it's not my fault

    It's time to walk out the door
    It's time to get goin'
    It's time to walk out the door
    It's time to get goin'

    It's time to walk out the door
    It's time to, it's time to

    Just can't make a thot a wife
    No more basic, ratchet guys
    Listen up, I'm saving you
    From all the hell that you'll go through

    Just can't make a thot a wife
    No more basic, ratchet guys
    Listen up, I'm saving you
    I'm saving you, I'm saving you

    It's time to call it off
    And this time, it's not my fault

    It's time to call it off
    And this time, it's not my fault

    It's time to walk out the door
    It's time to, it's time to Writer/s: Bailey Shamir, Sylvester Nicholas Barry
