  • Tell 'em this boy was made for loving
    Tell 'em this heart doesn't stay to one
    I'll be the same, never changed for nothing
    It's all I know, never learned much more

    Mama called me destructive, oh yeah
    Said it ruined me one day, yeah
    Cause every woman that loved me, oh yeah
    Seemed to push them away

    That's real life, oh oh oh
    Real life, ooh
    Mama talking that real life, oh oh oh
    That real life, real life, real life, real life

    I know you don't really understand it
    I'm not allowed to regret my choice
    I heard that love is a risk worth taking
    I learned to know never been that boy

    Mama called me destructive, oh yeah
    Said it ruined me one day, yeah
    Cause every woman that loved me, oh yeah
    Seemed to push them away

    That's real life, oh oh oh
    Real life, ooh
    Mama talking that real life, oh oh oh
    That real life, real life, real life, real life

    Heaven only lets a few in
    It's too late for me to choose it
    Don't waste precious tears on me, I'm not worth the misery
    I'm better off when I'm alone

    That's real life, oh oh oh
    Real life, ooh
    Mama talking that real life, oh oh oh
    That real life, real life, real life, real life
    That's real life, oh oh oh
    Real life, ooh
    Mama talking that real life, oh oh oh
    That real life, real life, real life, real life Writer/s: ABEL TESFAYE, JASON MATTHEW QUENNEVILLE, STEPHAN MOCCIO
