Hi, I’m an icon.
Allow me to reintroduce myself cause a lot of boys shooting shots better use a Nikon (flick flick flick)
Oh my gosh,
What I’m on:
Too focused for focused sake,
Everybody claiming good don’t know the stakes,
Wait. He don’t do dinner dates? (Ha ha ha ha ha)
Look
I’m sick and tired of these boys flexing
Claiming love but ain’t got no reflection,
Claiming bad cause they got no direction
and then aiming mad cause they got no discussion?
Turn around and want some empathy
Mad cause you could never get with me? (of course)
Yeah we talked for like twenty seconds, but I just didn’t find you interesting

Outro: [AyBe Lexington]
I want that good good good with some
Give me that good good
Good Good
Good Good Good
Do you mean it?
I want that
I want that
I want that

Good

Verse 1:

You and I know that I know you too well
Probably wrote a post about me how I let you down
See that was your issue you could never communicate with me
Subliminal messages seem to get you through things

 Pre-Chorus:

Wanted to be the one to stick it around with you (Around with you)
You showed me the worst side of you (Side of you)
Ain’t that love though? Hmmm
Ain’t that love though?
And if you wanted to change I never gave you a reason to
Hope time will show you it ain’t all about you
Ain’t that love though?
Naw that ain’t love, no

Chorus:

Maybe distance will teach you this time around

This time around
This time around
This time around

Maybe distance will teach you this time around

This time around (This time)
This time around (This time)
This time around (This time)

Verse 2:

Boy, I can’t blame you, you never had something so real
All we needed was communication, you couldn’t hear the way I feel
But now I feel like a quitter, I ain’t the one to be bitter
Don’t wanna be lonely, why is this so hard?
Should’ve been on your job, crazy I was so gone
I wanted to be the one-

Pre-Chorus:

Wanted to be the one to stick it around with you (Around with you)
You showed me the worst side of you
Ain’t that love though? Hmmm (Ain’t that love though?)
Ain’t that love though?
And if you wanted to change I never gave you a reason to
Hope time will show you it ain’t all about you
Ain’t that love though? (Ain’t that love though?)
Naw that ain’t love, no, no, no, noo

Chorus:

Maybe distance will teach you this time around

This time around
This time around
This time around

Maybe distance will teach you this time around

This time around (This time)
This time around (This time)
This time around (This time)

Outro:

I thought my love could change it
