  • Hello, no one is available to take your call
    Please leave a message after the tone

    I never had the courage to tell you I adore you
    I did it in a song, I was too afraid to call you
    I know, I know, I'm sorry, I know I'm annoyin'
    I just want your attention
    Ever since I saw you, knew nothin' was important
    Your gravity is too strong and it's fuckin' up my orbit
    Contact avoided by the time I record this
    I just want you to listen

    Everytime I see you, yeah, you brighten up my day
    You're the cashmere to my cotton and I wished you felt the same
    More options in the alphabet, I know I'll be okay-kay-kay
    No, I won't

    'Cause it's them rose tinted cheeks (cheeks, cheeks)
    It's them rose tinted cheeks (cheeks, cheeks, cheeks, cheeks)
    And it's them rose tinted cheeks (cheeks, cheeks, cheeks, cheeks)
    It's them rose tinted cheeks (cheeks, cheeks, cheeks, cheeks)

    They Black Flag we AF
    We BF as AF
    But they won't get that
    That's that 20 Century Women reference
    You so hard to get like intricate metaphors
    Companies? I own four
    But all I want is yours
    Hit the 'plex and catch a band (ooh)
    Sushi spot I recommend (ooh)
    Float around hittin' wheelies, leg or engine-based, it all depends
    Either one is cool to me
    And you're way too cool for me
    I'ma freeze to death tryna keep up
    Thirsty I am, I may need three cups, what's up?

    Everytime I see you, yeah, you brighten up my day
    You're the cashmere to my cotton and I wished you felt the same
    More options in the alphabet, I know I'll be okay-kay-kay

    It's them rose tinted cheeks (cheeks, cheeks, cheeks, cheeks)
    It's them rose tinted cheeks (cheeks, cheeks, cheeks, cheeks)
    And it's them rose tinted cheeks (cheeks, cheeks, cheeks, cheeks)
    It's them rose tinted cheeks, uh

    La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la
    Eye contact, eye contact, eye contact, yeah
    Speedin' down the 5 in my newest ride
    You was kinda high, speakers mild high
    Track 10 track 10, dirt bike afternoons
    As long as pale skin is near, I didn't have to leave the room
    Switch gears
    Roamed around around fell in love (fell in love)
    Broke my leg and got stuck, what the fuck?
    Hit my head, wait, I wish you would fall in too, I said
    I wish you would fall in and snap them legs
    'Cause I'ma be stuck here until I'm dead and gone

    La-la-la, la-la-la
    Yeah
    La-la-la, la-la-la
    La-la-la, la-la-la

    I remember when we first met
    My eyes, like jeans too tight, I couldn't take 'em off you
    You're precious metal I was a magnet just lookin'
    I've been searching for somethin'
    But didn't know what I was looking for
    Then you popped and it became so clear
    Like that water up north, so clear
    And truthfully now
    I'm intimidated by your existence
    Flustered because of your presence and
    Your absence leaves me, leaves me in a state of confusion, I mean
    I really can't function (ah)
    La-la-la-la (uh huh)
    I can't explain it (uh huh)
    I'm aware enough to know this is just a temporary pool of emotion (uh huh, alright)
    But since I'm here, I might as well drown, so
    Please don't save me (uh huh) Writer/s: Steve Lacy, Tyler Okonma
