Verse 1:
What the fuck can I say to you?
I honestly thought one day I'd marry you
Was it love or lust that made us gain this trust
Throw our hearts to the pits, and call it barbeque
Or fucking therapy abuse
The way we'd fight and fuss just to fuck like the angry youth
Kinda got used to it to, both acting like fools
Bent up on pride, get in a fight, just to hit redo
And I was never scared of other guys
Only scared of little lies turning our paradise back into an endless fight
Asking myself is this fucking right?
We can't let the other grab the light?
Would rather be there together or never, that ain't sacrifice
It's pure selfishness, and I could see it in my own eyes
Nothing we can change, just wish we could go back in time
To 1999 when I could barely find a line to rhyme
Elementary school days, passing by you in the hallways
If only I knew to hold onto you always,
Now all day, I know you'll let this song play
And think back, way back, to find that happy place
Where we'd hang on those monkey bars like apes
Now we're both grown monkey's, gotta act our age
Yet we still can't look each other in the face
Always think the other's hiding something, oh these mind games

[Beat Break 1]
We've both got issues from being with others
And watched both our mothers lose out on their lovers
So it kinda makes sense to me...
That our pure energies would want to intervene
But tradgically wasn't meant to be..forever
Why I'm currently using this song like a letter
To get myself out the bad weather,
But at the same time you'd think that'd make us fall back together

Verse 2:
I could never tell you why or how this all happened
But I could paint a good picture, if you would just imagine
Two opposites attracting, shy girl with a rapper
Like kobe and shaq tho both wanna be headmaster
Now we could have made it all ok with no disaster
But our selfishness, and other factors couldn't find the answers
To the questions, like are we destined?
Or is our history a lesson?
To never try to get more out of life when it presents it
Yeah I'm getting older now, and I'm starting to see the message
I just wanna be the one still standing at the ending
Which is why at this present, I'm letting out all my stresses
Taking notes from Hendrix, how to redefine my methods
And not let my head get burdened down with this depression
You could say I took the darkest of pictures and made it bright
I'd say it all came from heart break, but it's ight
If every single fight brought me to this present light
Then it was worth it to me, though still doesn't feel right
You were my Bonnie... I was your Clyde
We were supposed to ride out til we mother fucking died
Why I can't understand this was all in the plan
But I know that I'm a better man...
So instead of looking back at what we coulda had
I'll just be the one there when you need a helping hand

[Beat Break 2]
Like damn, I still want the best for you
Somehow it's hard to get that message through
...cus I heard your with some other dude
If you are and your happy, then I'm happy too
You'll always have my heart, you do
1/3 of this big bright light, for you to hold onto
Til the day that I fall flat my boo
You were the realest girl in my life, that fact is true

Verse 3:
But I know that you're already half a world gone
Cus when I tried to make right, you couldn't even respond
And yes I saw, exactly what was going on
You couldn't bare to see me, cus I'm just what you want
Like damn, I know that's a sad fact
But this is a sad track, feel like my hearts been smashed
Cracked into 3 pieces, 2 I ain't getting back
Only one love left, but fuck it I'll live with that
Because love is a drug and I relapsed...
Matter of fact I crashed back onto that endless path
Tryna find a new match to cover up the past
And bandage up my scars with good times and laughs
Which is why girl you gotta understand
That I know that I'm a better man..
So with my one last chance to make this message clear
I don't love you anymore, but keep my heart as your souvenier
…yeah keep my heart as your souvenier
hold it tight and I'm always here
