  • People always talk about the ones that got away
    I just seem to get the ones that always want to stay
    I'm just too distracted with the life I'm tryna paint
    Yeah, yeah, uh, oh yeah, yeah
    Say, I got all these women too attracted to the fame
    Not too many niggas that will end up in the way
    Nothing's gonna stop me, I'mma get it either way
    Yeah, yeah, uh, oh yeah, yeah

    Why would you wanna take away from this moment? We can own it
    Why would you wanna take away from this moment? Woo-hoo!

    You don't have to spend your life with me
    You don't have to waste your energy
    We can just be rockin', yeah
    We can just be rockin', yeah
    I just want your body next to me
    'Cause it brings me so much ecstasy
    We can just be rockin', yeah
    We can just be rockin', yeah, yeah, yeah

    You see me texting, baby, you see those missed calls
    I'm actin' reckless baby, I'm 'bout to lose it all
    This liquor got me crazy, mixed with that Adderall
    I'm focused on the beat, oh yeah

    Why would you wanna take away from this moment? We can own it
    Why would you wanna take away from this moment? Woo-hoo!

    You don't have to spend your life with me
    You don't have to waste your energy
    We can just be rockin', yeah
    We can just be rockin', yeah (We can just be rockin')
    I just want your body next to me
    'Cause it brings me so much ecstasy
    We can just be rockin', yeah
    We can just be rockin', yeah (We can just be rockin', baby)

    Yeah, yeah
    (Why would you wanna take away from this moment? We can own it)
    (Why would you wanna take away from this moment? Woo-hoo!)
    (Let's go! Hey!)

    You don't have to spend your life with me (You don't have to spend your life with me)
    You don't have to waste your energy (You don't have to waste)
    We can just be rockin', yeah (Oh, baby)
    We can just be rockin', yeah (All you got to need to know)
    I just want your body next to me (Hey!)
    'Cause it brings me so much ecstasy
    We can just be rockin', yeah
    We can just be rockin', yeah
