  • Need you for the old me
    Need you for my sanity
    Need you to remind me where I come from
    Can you remind me of my gravity?
    Ground me when I'm tumblin', spiralin', plummetin' down to Earth
    You keep me down to Earth
    Call me on my bullshit
    Lie to me and say my booty gettin' bigger even if it ain't
    Love me even if it rain
    Love me even if it pain you
    I know I be difficult
    You know I be difficult
    You know it get difficult to

    Open your heart up
    Hoping they'll never find out that you're anyone else
    'Cause I love you just how you are
    Hope you never find out who I really am
    'Cause you'll never love me
    You'll never love me, you'll never love me
    But I believe you when you say it like that
    Only you need me when you say it like that
    Oh I believe you when you say it like that
    You must really love me

    For real, I'm not playing no games
    Pulling back and forth
    I need your support now (now, now, now, now, now)
    In case you call my phone I don't care
    Got no panties on
    I need your support now (now, now, now, now, now)
    I know you'd rather be layin' up with a big booty
    Body hella positive 'cause she got a big booty (wow)
    I know I'd rather be paid up
    You know I'm sensitive about havin' no booty, havin' no body, only you buddy
    Can you hold me when nobody's around us

    Open your heart up
    Hoping they'll never find out that you're anyone else
    'Cause I love you just how you are
    Hope you never find out who I really am
    'Cause you'll never love me,
    You'll never love me, you'll never love me
    But I believe you when you say it like that
    Only you need me when you say it like that
    Oh I believe you when you say it like that
    You must really love me

    "You don't got shit to say to me
    I ain't got shit to say to you"
    - "haha and that's the truth"
    "And step on
    Also you black heffa, you stand your ground
    'Cause I feel the same way
    If you don't like me, you don't have to fool with me
    You don't have to talk about me or treat me mean
    I don't have to treat you mean
    I just stay out of your way
    That's the way you work that one" Writer/s: Craig Inocencio Balmoris, Daniel Tannenbaum, S. Gherman, Solana I. Rowe, T. Melenbacher
