Strangers (Feat. Nitty Scott, Mc)
Yeah, it all started with a wave
Comin' from a cutey that I spotted on the train
And I don't usually spit game
To a stranger but I was in danger of never learnin' this girl's name
So I set it off talkin,' laughin,' jokin'
I missed my train stop and I didn't even notice
I gotta see this girl again
Like, "I don't even need ya number – I already know that you're a perfect 10"
"So what's good for tonight?" leads to two drinks, to the head
And too many things in common leads us to a bed
Two dates to two weeks to two years, too fast
Man, I'm always in too deep, why do I do that?
But we're not gonna move back, we're happy and fine
Yo, does anyone believe love is actually blind?
When the thought of breakin' up is in the back of ya mind
I don't know what's gonna happen in time…I just let it ride
Remember those days, when I would say
I would never go a day without you
Even though you are gone, they're playin' our song
And it makes me think about you
So I scroll though my phone, I stop at your name
But I never can seem to call
You're a stranger, I'm a stranger
We're just strangers after all
You were my perfect little painkiller, popped the whole bottle
Built this on sand with no time to remodel
Thought you and I were a positive turn
You said I didn't know a lot but I was willin' to learn
Held my heart up – gimme the loot, gimme the loot
And we were skydivin,' no parachute
You used to sing off-key and I thought it was cute
But lately my love songs gotta stay on mute
'Cause we just grew apart, and didn't play it smart
Then you just leave me hangin' like a broken work of art
You told me that you hate me and I took it to the heart
Then everything just faded to dark
Call you Adam, call me Eve, 'cause baby we deceive
You say you'd stick around when it was easier to leave
But loyalty is dead so I hear and don't believe
And now you just a stranger with a story on ya sleeve
So I let a couple of years pass
Frontin' like I'm happy but I'm holdin' tears back
Because I miss you
And every now and then, yo I still think about my life with you
You told me I would always be your best friend, you said it convincingly
Wonder if you hear our song, if you ever think of me
'Cause we swore that forever we would stay connected
I guess forever happens faster than we both expected
Uh, now why you lookin' all oblivious?
Like on the inside you wasn’t hideous?
I try to keep it movin' like a vet do, correct you
But I couldn’t remember to forget you
Respect, boo, so I guess the only thing that's left to do
Is apologize for the things that I never said to you
They say it's hardest to forgive the ones you love
So think of it as a plus a stranger is all I am to you
Cried you a river and you left me here to shiver
Why they always overpromise and they under-deliver?
I bet you thought about it a lot
But it's been so long I'll probably give you a shot
So when you lay back, and press playback, I just pray that
You take whatever brings the pain back and you erase that
Let's say that, after days pass
Maybe I'll just be a stranger on the train you wave at, and I'll wave back
