Non Fiction Album Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Non-Fiction

The story you 'bout to hear is complete fiction. It is however made up of a group of stories, true stories about real people. Thus creating real characters going through real things. Thus making the story itself real, true and a real story, a true story, is non-fiction

Our story begins in a dark place. A place where you learn that everything that you wanted, could potentially be the very thing that leads to your destruction. The very thing you should fear. This is a lesson learned the hard way, experience being the only teacher. I mean you can't exactly tell a broke man that money is evil and expect him to listen to you now can you? Naw he's got to go down that road, he's got to face them demons himself before he can acquire that knowledge. The money solves one group of problems only to introduce another. Strangers become friends, friends become enemies. The fame, just like any other drug feels incredible until you realize all that adoration, all that love, ain't real. And the women, huh, the women, a drug you use that uses you right back. A high for a high so to speak. Which brings us to Tammy

Everybody Loves / The Def Of You

Tammy Vanity, pretty as the ocean on a summer day, shallow as a puddle

She does it 'casue she loves it
But so do I, so who the hell am I to judge it
I still do though, it's always easier to point out sobebody else's problems than face [?] you though
Her drug, the life and she used me to get closer to it
And I ain't no better, cause I let her do it
So we both lying
But she so fine
So is it her problem, or mine?

She only love me when I'm on top
Only time I hear from her is right around the BET awards
VMA, AMAs and Billboard's
Asking me what I'm nominated for
Or if I'm performing
She be like "Don't forget to call me for the party"
Only love me when I'm hanging with celebrity friends
Use me to get closer to them
Chris Brown, Trey Songz or maybe even Jigga
She be life "If you going can I come with ya?"
"And can you ask trey is I can get a picture?"
Table hopping in the club
But for some reason she always get looks

[Hook:]
Cause see you can't deny that girl is beautiful
But only on the outside
It's a drug
And she's a junkie but that don't matter though
Why? Cause see everybody loves the (the life, the life)

Text her just to chill, random nights, no response
Grammy weekend roll around
She texting me like "Sexy what ya doing?"
When any other time it's me pursuing
Concert coming, telling she looking for tickets to it
Asking who I'm cool with
When she need the hook up, it's me she look up
Ooh and I know to her I'm just a free ride
But the sex is so good that I let it slide
No I'm not proud of it, I'm really not
But I cannot deny she's really hot
When she come through with all that ass she got

[Hook]

What's wrong with you man? You been fighting niggas in the club now? And over what, a bucket? (Excuse me?) Shut up, ain't nobody talking to you. Yo, you need to check your self bruh. What you catching feelings now, you know what these broads is about, get off that. I'm telling you, these broads gon' be the def of you, gonna be the def of you. You hear me? Ne-Yo? You listening?

Run / An Island

[Intro - ScHoolboy Q:]
Breathing [?] in my system
Watching your body hypnotize me from your rhythm
Put that thing up in my kitchen
See your body type's the carry on tradition
You and jeans open doors, key, keys to a Porsche

[Verse 1 - Ne-Yo:]
Shawty get a buzz
Shawty get a buzz from
Indent relationships
Shawty sexing flesh, hips, thighs and her breasts made to get ya
She bad enough to make you write her number on the back of your girlfriend's picture

[Pre-Hook - Ne-Yo:]
She got a walk like she stalking prey
Them killer curves and that pretty face
And she gon' make you do what you say
Licking them lips, swinging them hips as she walk your way

[Hook - Ne-Yo:]
Better run, run for your life
You better run, run for your life

[Verse 2:]
Shawty gave a thrill
Shawty gave a thrill from making me beg
Set 'em up, turn 'em out, knock 'em down, it's just that simple
Shawty make love like a drug or a shotgun straight to the temple

[Pre-Hook]
[Hook]

[Verse 3 - ScHoolboy Q:]
Hips movin' yo ass pokin', your neck breaking
Dress stretching, eyes sparkling, you a breath taker
Heart stopper, need a chart topper
Groovy Q meets Big Pimpin'
St. Laurent for your Spring clothes
Red bottoms, you need those
All the things I do for you, oh
Got a private jet for two, oh
Yeah we taking off or we can land in Rome
Put a wet one out the roof
All the things I do for you
How these pearls come out the roof
God built you like a temple
How your body drive me schizo

[Hook]

[Part 2 - An island:]
Drowning in a sea of groupies, buckets and scallywags. clinging to sanity by a thread, suffocating, when suddenly he spots her. Sexy and classy attire, very little makeup, weave on point, buying her own damn drinks. And as the that waves keep crashing and attempt to bring my man down, behold sweet salvation. An island, integrity [?]

Integrity

She don't really drink much so she say
But by the way she was putting in the Malibu Reds away
She was either 'bout that life
Tryna front but tryna get right
Or maybe she work hard, everyday, at her job
And she feel like she deserve to turn up tonight
Either way, miss lady bad as a Toblerone sugar rush
I drew her near, whispered in her ear
"I think that I'm developing a little crush"
She said "Nice try, but every short skirt
that done walked by has successfully caught your eye
No thanks but I'm sure that you're a nice guy"
Damn, I had no reply, cause she was right
Newly single so I've been a little thirsty
She was more than just a booty in a skirt she
Walked a way I caught up to her in a hurry
I said "Can I at least know your name before your dead me"
She turned around and said "My name's integrity"
Integrity, can you answer this for me

[Hook x2:]
Baby where do you wanna go?
I'll do what you say
She puttin' it to the top
She said take me all the way
Matter of fact I'll meet you there
Woah, now I'm feelin' love

Oh Integrity
I think that I need you and me babe
And me babe

[Hook x2]

Integrity, damn

One More

[Intro:]
Excuse me...

[Verse 1:]
You look like you just got off from work
And if I may assume, babe
You work hard but you don't get what you're worth
(Am I right?) Let me take another guess
You're a little stressed and I bet your feet hurt
No, I don't read minds, babe
I just know what it look like
When a woman work all night tryna get her thing right

[Pre-Chorus:]
I don't know where you've been
And I don't know what you've been through
But something's tellin' me you
You deserve a drink or two

[Chorus:]
(Bartender!)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(Whatever she wants)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(Whatever she wants)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(I don't know where you've been)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(And I don't know what you've been through)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(But something's tellin' me you...)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(I just been lookin' from across the room and I just wa' say sum')
(You deserve a drink or two)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(I mean, what I do is fair)

[Verse 2 - T.I.:]
See I was thinkin', over in the corner while I been drinkin'
See you've probably been lookin' for way more out a weekend
Than freakin' and watchin' the sun by so high
But you feel so nasty and don't know why
And you tried all the things that you wouldn't gon' try
Like kiss body parts that weren't on the guide
A bunch of girls in the bed, and there wasn't none divided
And there were no inhibition, and everybody wishin'
We done did this shit back then, why we didn't?
Hey and even if you went too far, it forgiven
You were high when you did it, everybody was trippin'
Promised you'd forget it, but everybody didn't
You like this ass doesn't land in the air, body mitten
And I don't just be lookin' on everybody's kitten
But you get in the room and my dick in the room
Make your forget about all the chicks in the room, like that

[Chorus:]
(Bartender!)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(Whatever she wants)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(Whatever she wants)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(I don't know where you've been)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(And I don't know what you've been through)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(But something's tellin' me you...)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(You deserve a drink or two)
Let me get one more for the lady
(You deserve a drink or two)
Let me get one more for the lady

[Bridge:]
Ain't gon' lie to you, baby
Wish I could take you somewhere more private
Ain't gon' lie to you, baby
Get all in your mind and see what's inside it
Ain't gon' lie to you
I want you, how could I not with a booty so fat?
I don't wanna get on your nerves and test your patience
I ain't tryna do that, no
Ain't gon' lie to you, baby
I would love the opportunity to rub your feet
Ain't gon' lie to you, baby
If you with it, I got somebody sexy you should meet
Ain't gon' lie to you
You had a long night, I'm just tryna help you end it right
So if I may be so bold, can I get you one more to go?

[Chorus:]
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(Whatever she wants)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(Whatever she wants)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(I don't know where you've been)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(And I don't know what you've been through)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(But something's tellin' me you...)
Let me get one more for the lady
Let me get one more for the lady
(You deserve a drink or two)
Let me get one more for the lady
(You deserve a drink or two)
Let me get one more for the lady

[Outro - T.I.:]
If she don't like it, she don't like it

Time Of Our Lives

[Pre-Chorus - Ne-Yo:]
I know my rent was gon' be late bout a week ago
I worked my ass off, but I still can't pay it though
But I just got just enough
To get off in this club
Have me a good time, before my time is up
Hey, let's get it now

[Chorus - Ne-Yo:]
Oooh!! I want the time of my life
Oh baby ooh give me the time of my life
Let's get it now

[Verse 1 - Pitbull:]
Mr. Worldwide
Ne-yo
This is the last $20 I got
But I'mma have a good time ballin' or out
Tell the bartender, line up some shots
Cause I'mma get loose tonight
She's on fire, she's so hot
I'm no liar, she burn up the spot
Look like Mariah, I took another shot
Told her drop, drop, drop, drop it like it's hot
Dirty talk, dirty dance
She a freaky girl and I'm a freaky man
She on the rebound, broke up with her ex
And I'm like Rodman, ready on deck
I told her I wanna ride out, and she said yes
We didn't go to church, but I got blessed

[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus]

[Verse 2 - Pitbull:]
Tonight I'mma lose my mind
Better get yours cause I'm gonna get mine
Party every night, like my last
Mommy know the drill, shake that ass
Go ahead baby let me see what you got
You know you got the biggest booty in this spot
And I just wanna see that thing drawwwwp
From the back to the front to the top
You know me I'm off in the cut
Always like a squirrel, looking for a nut
This isn't for show I'm not talking 'bout luck
I'm not talking 'bout love, I'm talking 'bout lust
Now let's get loose, have some fun
Forget about bills and the first of the month
It's my night, your night, our night, let's turn it up

[Pre-Hook]
[Hook]

[Bridge - Ne-Yo:]
Everybody's gone through something
(Everybody's gone through something)
I said, everybody's gone through something
(Everybody's gone through something)
So you might as well you roll it up
Pour it up, drink it up, throw it up tonight
I said, everybody gone through something
(Everybody's gone through something)
Said, everybody gone through something
(Everybody's gone through something)
So you might as well you roll it up
Pour it up, drink it up, throw it up tonight

[Break - Pitbull:]
This for everybody going through tough times
Believe me, been there, done that
But everyday above ground is a great day, remember that, Dale!

[Pre-Hook]

Let You What... (Interlude)

Thank you. You're welcome
Huh, all right
(Where to sir?)
Take us home [?]
Wait a minute, I didn't say I was coming home with you
Well I mean, you didn't necessarily say you wasn't
Stop tryna be cute
I'm just saying. I want you, it's clear that you want me
Conceded
Confident, there's a difference. And to deny our impulses is to deny the very thing that makes us human
Spare me the game. It's clear that you want it, the question is, do you deserve it?
I can show you so much better than I can tell you, that is if I let you
Let you what?
Take you there...



Top▲  

Take You There

[Verse 1:]
You're shaking, tell me what is the matter babe?
Do I make you a little nervous? Girl don't be afraid
I'm not here to hurt you, just the opposite indeed
You can let your guard down baby, you're safe in here with me

[Hook:]
If you let me take control
Girl I got you I swear
More passion than you've ever known
I'm about to (take you there)
And you can keep your eyes closed
But baby don't be scared
Hold on here we go
I'm about to (take you there)

[Verse 2:]
These arms are for, for your warmth and protection girl
Lay your head on my chest, just chill before we start the session girl
I'm gonna put my love in you baby
Gonna give you all of me
Just a [?] of my love baby
Bite your lip and grip the sheets

[Hook]

[Verse 3:]
Just let go, go on and let yourself give it up
Your body worshipped by mine is what this night holds for us
And if we happen to fall in love I'm not opposed
Grown enough to handle a real baby
But let's not sweat it right now
All I want you to do is focus on how it feels baby

[Hook x2]

Good Morning / Gon' Ride

Birds are chirping, suns coming up as I' going down
Birds are chirping, suns coming up as I' going down, down, down

Don't worry babe, it's only me
When I disappear under the sheets, you start to feel tingly
Don't worry baby
Just lie back, bite your bottom lip and get as much as you need
I know you gotta go to work so let me work it out right quick, continue happy

[Hook:]
Let me say good morning
Let me get that breakfast in bed baby before you leave
I wanna say
Good morning
Just wanna make sure you start your day properly
Said I'd rather have it

Ever runnin', ever runnin', ever runnin'
Ever runnin', ever runnin', ever runnin'
Through your mind baby
All all day
Ever runnin', ever runnin', ever runnin'
Ever runnin', ever runnin', ever runnin'
Through your mind baby
All day

The shower, I follow you
And now I got you begging
Cause your boss be stressing
You really need to get dressed and go
But then I kiss your neck
And you melt in my arms
You 'bout to be late no doubt
I need to hear you scream and shout
I need you to melt in my mouth
I need you to do 3 more hours
I need you to let me say

[Hook:]
Let me say good morning
Let me get that breakfast in bed baby before you leave
I wanna say
Good morning
Just wanna make sure you start your day properly
Said I'd rather have it

Ever runnin', ever runnin', ever runnin'
Ever runnin', ever runnin', ever runnin'
Through your mind baby
All all day
Ever runnin', ever runnin', ever runnin'
Ever runnin', ever runnin', ever runnin'
Through your mind baby
All day

Said I wanna be
Runnin' through your mind girl, runnin' through your mind
While you all at work, wanna be runnin' through your mind
Runnin' through your mind girl, runnin' through your mind
But before you leave let me send you [?]

[Hook:]
Let me say good morning
Let me get that breakfast in bed baby before you leave
I wanna say
Good morning
Just wanna make sure you start your day properly
Said I'd rather have it

Celebrity thing ain't all it's cracked up to be, 'specially when it comes to relationships. Everybody got a agenda, you don't know who to trust. That's why I'm single right now, I ain't even looking for love, that's hard. I just need somebody that's gon' ride, I just need somebody that's gonna make it easy to take it easy, you know what I'm saying



Top▲  

Make It Easy

Do you love me for me though?
The real me not my fly alter-ego
I know I'm never not fly
But if I ever was would you still ride?

If it's early in the morning and my breath stink
Would you still roll over kissin' on me like it ain't?
If I didn't have millions in the bank
I'm talkin' cardboard box and a fish tank
Better yet a fish bowl
And if the fame got old
If the cameras didn't flash when I walk through
If I wasn't makin' them bands when I walk through
Is it where I lost you? Or is you holding me down?
You never let 'em bring me down
All the haters in the world right now
Would you add to the stress or would you make it easy

[Chorus:]
For me to take it easy
That's what I'm lookin' for, baby let me know
Would you make it easy?
(Easy for me to chill, easy for us to feel)
Easy to take it easy
That's what I'm looking for, baby let me know

Ooh girl I know what I need
Se appeal, intelligence, positive energy
When the drama comes, she become serenity
Lady when I need a lady, freak when I need a freak
Sahwty ride like me like I ride the beat
Everything 'bout her quality
Why I send her and her girls to Dubai for 'bout a week
Just a little reward for, for when she hold me down
Never let 'em bring me down
You the one that I'm lookin' for to make it easy

[Chorus]

Where you at?
Shawty where you at?
Baby girl we got bags to pack
We got trips to take if you cool with that
Show me that you got my back
Let me see that you got my back
Then we'll get into all that
Said we'll get into all that
If you make it easy

[Chorus]

Money Can't Buy

[Verse 1 - Jeezy:]
You lookin' better than a Scarface starter kit
All hundreds, small faces nothin' counterfeit
You want this ghetto D? Or that over the counter shit?
Catch you slippin' in the kitchen, on the counter shit (damn)
Oh shit (sup), I guess I'll pause for these bitches
Guess I'll ball for these niggas, swear this my last three swishers
On my grown man shit I'm 'bout to kill these bitches

[Hook - Ne-Yo:]
Baby you know I got some money
Girl, the dough ain't a problem for me
But when I look in your eyes
Baby you've got everything money just can't buy
(All the things money can't buy x4)

[Verse 2 - Ne-Yo:]
Got a diamond in the back, sunroof top
Got a diamond on my hat and my sunroof off
Her mind strong but her body so soft
Tattoo on her hip read "Only for a Boss"
She ain't impressed with the way I ball
She said "You seen one ghost, you seen 'em all"
Even though that thing cold
She said "A Rolls Royce or a Civic, Daddy I'm a roll with you"
She ride for me, die for me, love me, that's how she do
I pulled up close and I tell her what's true

[Hook]

[Verse 3 - Ne-Yo:]
Shawty where you at? Meet me at the mall
Told her "Let me buy you something", she replied "Naw"
She said her love won't be bought
I don't need to spend no money, spend some time that's all
I told her "Daddy don't mind spending"
I want to see you shine like the diamonds in my pendant
She told me she don't care for the flash
Want affection not cash, girl I ain't even mad at you
She ride for me, die for me, love me, that's how she do
I pulled up close and I tell her what's true

[Hook]

[Verse 4 - Jeezy:]
What's happening with it baby? Hope you don't think that I'm crazy
Say me and you, get us some practice makin' a baby
I will take some out the stash and buy you that new Mercedes
Then be all up in that ass in the back of that new Mercedes
You confident, protectin' ya, send me your issues
They ain't 'bout to be playing with her, me and these pistols
See that thirty-six for D'Usse, I'm the provider
Come scoop me in that 458, you be the rider
(Yeah) Oh well, that's that, back to the party
Bet you niggas anything I'm leaving here with shawty
Got a feeling that she f*ckin' with me for me
She got me feeling like I got a million on me

[Hook]

She Knows

[Verse 1 - Ne-Yo:]
You know, from the moment she turn around
She know, how to back it up and drop it down
She know, she what all the fellas looking at
Cause they know, soon as her song come on it's a wrap

[Pre-Hook 1 - Ne-Yo:]
And she loves the attention
That she get when she moves, yeah
Showin' out with her home girls
Hypnotizing all the dudes, oh

[Hook - Ne-Yo:]
And she knows
(She knows, she knows, she knows)
She knows
(She knows, she knows, she knows)
She knows
(She knows, she knows, she knows)
I know, I know, she knows
(She knows, she knows, she knows)
And I know, I know, she knows

[Verse 2 - Ne-Yo:]
She bad, mix of ratchet with the classy, oh
So bad, I just couldn't let her pass me, no
I told her, "Shawty, you so right, but you so wrong"
(So wrong, so wrong, so wrong)
She said, "Daddy, I'll be back after this song"
"Then you takin' me home"
Said I know

[Pre-Hook 2 - Ne-Yo:]
Said I know she loves the attention
That she get when she moves
Showin' out with her home girls
And she got me watching too girl

[Hook]

[Verse 3 - Juicy J:]
She know what she working with
(She know, she know, she know)
I see you, uh
You got my attention baby, go do what you do
I think she noticed, know you gon' have to make a move
All this ice in my rolley, no wonder I play it cool
Ain't no 'I' in Team but
I got my eyes on you, I watch it bounce
When she walk, she lick her lips
When she talk
I throw her in that Bentley coupé with the top off like Mardi Gras
All that cake, come get you some filling
Like a soap opera come watch all my children
Hit it so long that she might lose feeling
With her legs in the air, she gon' walk on the ceiling

[Pre-Hook 2]

[Hook]

She Said I'm Hood Tho

She said "I know, I know, I know your music
I prefer your old shit to your new shit
That song with Pitbull, it was kinda cool
But after that, you went left and I couldn't f*ck with you"
Well damn, couldn't help but appreciate
That she was bold enough to say this to my face
She even went as far to give me her Twitter name
She said, "I tweeted you and told you the same thing"
But, she said, "I never thought I'd meet
And you cuter in real life than on TV
You a celebrity
You could have any girl you want, what the hell you want with me?"

[Chorus:]
I told her, "Baby, there is a difference
Between what you really want and what you can get
I can have anything, but I don't want just anything
I want you tonight, I want you

I said, "You got, you got, you got me twisted
What my celebrity got to do with it?
Just cause I can have don't mean I want them chicks
I take quality over quantity any day, you dig?"
She said, "I'm hood though, Ne-Yo
And I know you be on your goody good though, Ne-Yo
Get ratchet, yes I could, though, Ne-Yo
Mess up your image, I probably would though, Ne-Yo"
I said, "You don't scare me
The word "gentleman" starts with "G""
She said, "You a celebrity
You could have any girl you want, what you want with me?"

[Chorus]

Now that she sat there, lookin' at me like she wasn't sure
Questionin' my intentions, why and what for
Thinkin', "He can have actresses, singers or models galore
I work in a nail shop, every day in that bitch from 8 until 4"
Shawty's a rose that grows through the cracks in the concrete
Her mother's body but her brother's knowledge of the street
Kick all you beautiful lies, shawty ain't goin' for 'em
She type stubborn, like her daddy, but she don't know him
Got me feelin' like I ain't good enough
I ain't a D-boy or a thug so I ain't hood enough
Or maybe it's the other way around and shawty's self esteem is down
Not good enough to wife but good enough to f*ck, nah mama
I'm really tryna get to know
What's under your garden, not just what's under your clothes
You feel me?
And don't concern yourself with status, I don't
It ain't about what I can have, it's about what I want, you dig?

[Chorus]

Story Time

Aiight boys and girls, gather 'round. Story time. Check this out

I said, "I wish you'd just give it a try
You've never done it, how you know what you don't like?"
She said, "Am I not enough for you, is that why?"
I said, "No, I just think it would be sexy and kinda fly"
She said, "Well I don't"
I said, "Well if I let you pick the girl, would that make a difference?"
She said, "That don't matter cause I just don't think I'm cool with a threesome"

What? Come on. Man you trippin'

I said, "You actin' funny and I don't even know why
Cause you can't tell me that you don't like girls, don't lie"
She said, "I can appreciate a pretty face, a nice backside (Oh word)
But just cause I might find a girl sexy, that does not make me bi"
I said, "Yes it does"
She said, "nigga you just wish I was"
I said, "Why you frontin'?
Just embrace who you really are
And you just might enjoy, a threesome"

You never know. Got to open up your mind. You only live once, know what I'm talkin' 'bout?
Nah but for real though, you never thought about it? Never? Aiight

She said, "What if I said I want to bring in another guy?" What!?
I just gave her a look like "you done lost your damn mind"
She said, "Oh, okay so another girl is fine
But when I mention another dude you're lookin' like you wanna punch me in the eye"
I said, "Don't tempt me"
She said, "You know that ain't fair"
I said, "I'm just playin'
But for real don't no dudes allowed
Only you, me and she in this threesome"
She said, "Hold up, when did I agree to this threesome"
I said, "Just now, and you can't take it back, let's have a threesome"
She said, "Well I did think about my girl Stephanie before in a threesome"
I said, "I got her number, I'll call her right now for this threesome"

She said, "Wait a minute. You got Stephanie's number? Nigga when'd you get Stephanie's number?"
I said, "Uhhh...."
The end

Why

(I asked you a question)
I feel a rise burning in the back of my head
If she could kill me with a look, I'd already be dead
Excited at the thought of possibly two in my bed
I said some shit that I instantly regretted I said
I hid my deception with absolute discretion
Wanted to turn around and give up an accidental confession
I turned to look at her and she's just standin' there
Facial expression says it all, war has been declared

She said, is there anything you wanna tell me?
I'm standin' there with my head down and I'm thinkin'
Oh no, here we go
What the hell was I thinkin'? Man I wish I was drinkin'
So I could blame it on the liquor, why did I paint the picture?
Why did I think it was something that she wouldn't even consider?
Now I'm avoidin' eye contact as if I owe her money
Tryna laugh it off, clearly she don't think it's funny

And then she stepped to me, comin' so steady
Looked at me like she knew already
I betrayed her trust, it weighs heavy
On my head, and then she said
Why can't I be loved?
Why can't I feel love?
Why am I not worthy of
Oh why can't I feel love?

All she wanted was somethin' real, somethin' true
With tears in her eyes she said, "I believed in you"
I said, "Please don't leave, please don't go away"
She said, "You broke my heart. How could I stay?"
It'd be a year before I'd see integrity again
(Over there, they said he's over there
I see him, there he is
Ne-Yo! Is this dude... what are you doing?
Bruh don't you know you got a show in.. 10 minutes from now?
You drinking before.. what is you doing?)
Relax, I'm not drunk. Guess who I ran into today

Congratulations

One of my best girls went and got a boo all of a sudden
Damn, and I can't even do nothin'
What I'm s'posed to do, tell her don't be happy?
So that I can keep comin' around
How messed up would that be?
So I'm chillin'
But I must admit, I'm kind of mad
Ain't every day you find one like that
Beautiful body with a brain to match
Make a fella start feeling attached
No filter fine, body, soul and mind
Any man can't see that, he must be blind
I'm Ray Charles with mine
So I missed the train
The only thing left to say is...

[Chorus:]
Congratulations
Kinda sucks that we can't be what we were
But congratulations, baby I won't hate
I'm glad you found a man that treats you like you deserved

Single and happy, that's where I'm at
And she wasn't ever approving of that
She wanted me to give her more
But I told her though, ain't long ago
A relationship, I wasn't lookin' for
In and out of town and always on the road
But when I hit that city I called her though
And that's wrong, so wrong
She waited for me to come around so long, so long
And now that wifey material is wifey material
And if you ain't ready, the wife gotta let it go
I wasn't, he was though
So...

[Chorus x2]

I can't, give up, what I don't got
So I got to let him, have her, like it or not
Like she deserves
Like she deserves

[Chorus x2]

Come Over

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

Hmmm
I remember, sweet smells in the afternoon yeah
Hmmm vanilla candles in your bedroom, yeah
I remember slow jams on my iTunes
You take a sip you take a puff yeah you'll regret it soon
I remember like it was yesterday
How we used to lay around letting time and the world just fade away
And after all this time to see you now is great
I hesitate but I wanna say come over, come over

?You're still so fine,
Can we make up for lost time?
Girl I want you to come over, come over
Girl how you been?
Can we pretend we're still in love again?

?Do you still like to wear Chanel baby?
I think about you every time I smell that smell oh
Hey and now you and you're man doing well,
How did I know that you got a man?
I saw the pictures on your Instagram
With all do respect girl,
Oooh I'm just saying you can do better
My bad just trying to make you laugh
To take my mind away from how much I wanna ask you to come over, come over

?You're still so fine
Can we make up for lost time?
Girl I want you to come over, come over
Girl how you been?
(How you been?)
Can we pretend that we're still in love again?
Oh baby can we run it back?
Can we go back in time?
Back to when I was yours and you were mine
Can we go back to when love was simple and it was just us?
Back to when we were in love

?Come over, come over
You're still so fine,
Can we make up for lost time?
Can you come over, come over?
Girl how you been?
(Girl how you been?)
Can we pretend we're still in love again?
