Tell yo mom


Verse 1:

I was fine on my own
until you walked through that door.
Now I'm a cast away alone.
No more hunting for sport.
Changed my climate I was cold.
And that ain't coming from Al Gore.
Something about you feels like home.
You gave me something to work towards.
I'll turn your beauty into rhyme.
What I was put on this earth for.
Ultimatum, you or an extra life?
I'd say baby your worth more.
I wish you paid me with your time.
The clock is ticking I'm dirt poor.
But he's holding you so tight.
I'm about to start up a turf war.
Now i never have been in a fight.
But for you girl I would scrap with Mike.
He'd get an earful when he takes a bite.
As long as he don't take my sight.
Cus i wanna gaze into your eyes when I play this to you live.
Lay with me stay with me.
Sam Smith aside if you gave me one night well then you would be mine.


So please don't let me fall for you.
I can feel myself slip I'd give it all for you.
But he stole your heart nothing I can do.
While he holds you in his arms can't take my eyes off you.
I'd hate to lie to you. But you'll never be mine so I hide the truth.
I'd hate to lie to you. But you'll never be mine so I hide the truth.

Verse 2:

I know you know all the words so sign along.
Pretend you don't know that it is your song.
You kiss him it haunts. But I won't cry about it man I'm not Lebron.
I guess I'm not the one. Your the golden girl I don't want the bronze.
I just wanna cuddle you bae. Couple of jays snuggle and blaze.
Hold you tight like a fart girl. What do you say?
Tat your name on my heart instead of WJ.
But you'll never be mine.
That's a tough pill to swallow.
Maybe that's why...
my handles are always hollow.
Well that's just Pete, quoting himself.
Yeah that's just me, gloating this helm.
But, what's a throne? If you sleep inside a castle themed bed alone.
Any other girl playing my trombone, might as well try to sell me on Sublime with Rome.
I'm squeaming
like I'm with my mother at a fifty shades screening.
Scheming after her might it seem like I am dreaming but see dreaming is the reason I'm in front of you screaming.
