Might not

Abel:
“Everybody ‘round me saying I should relax
‘Cause I been going hard ’til my eyes roll backward”
All my peoples telling me i should take it easy, I’ve been knocking drinks back and popping pills like it ain’t nothing. Maybe they’re right.

“All I want to do is forget about my past
And smoke a little weed, really nothing too drastic”
I just want to forget about my problems and get a little high. That’s all. I’m not suicidal or anything.

“Any time you see me in a picture and I’m smiling
Probably ’cause I’m faded, or I’m chilling with the fans”
The only time i feel happy is when I’m surrounded by people who appreciate my art, or I’m High out of my mind.

“Not really the type to let a nigga talk back
But I’mma let it slide ’cause my niggas too violent”
I usually straighten out any conflict i come across, I’m not the kind of guy that lets people talk crazy to them. But i also know if i tell my crew what’s up, whoever talking crazy might end up in the hospital.

“Shout out to the ones who spend money like a habit
Even if they had a million dollars, they’d be trappin’”
I wanna show love to the ones who go out every night and drop racks like it’s their job. They’d still be putting in work even if they didn’t have to.

“Got a couple girls shooting movies on the mattress”
I got a few girls I’m here, willing and ready to entertain me, and let me film it.

“Then I hit the booth, make the motherfucking soundtrack
Then I play it back on the eighty-inch plasma”
When I’m all done here, I’ll go sing a few songs about the experiment and then showcase it to the world. It’s what they want from me.

“Then I get ’em faded off that super-fantastic”
And when I’m done with that, i go back to the ladies who gave me my inspiration and reward them for a job well done; their reward is the drugs i do in my free time.

“Roll that grandmaster, smell it through the plastic
Nobody can handle me, I’m gone”
This shit is so strong, and it gets me so high, when it’s in my system, nobody can tell me a damn thing…

“When the shit’s too strong
The night’s too long
I took too much and I’ve gone too far
And I might not make it
I might not make it this time
I might not make it”

“I might not make it
I might not make it this time
I might not make it
I might not make it
I might not make it this time
I might not make it
I might not”

Belly:
“Bitches know, told a hoe it’s different strokes for different folks
Came up out the north, we was playing with a different snow”
These females are gonna learn than not men are the same. I’m from a place that would be more or less bizarre to an outsider.

“Took my niggas from the four-one to Pacifico
We no longer put no fish scale on the fishing boat”
I let my boys enjoy the come up with me. Whatever i get, they get.

“Listen, hoe, I know all you bitches want is liquor, smoke (Liquor, smoke)
I know all you bitches want is dick and dough (Dick and dough)
Told her you don’t gotta make it difficult
Baby, sit calm, we don’t need another episode”
If anything, the women we come across all want the same thing from us; drinks, drugs, sex and money. Some of them let their feelings control their actions, but in a world like this, we can’t afford those kind of mistakes.

“Hippie bitches sending me titty pictures
She told me no religion was the new religion
She said she don’t believe in God, but her shoe’s Christian
I heard she serving everybody like the soup kitchen”
Even the down to earth, natural girls get wild sometimes and do scandalous shit. She doesn’t believe in god, wears high end designer heels and allows anyone with a pocket full of money to fuck when they want.

“Getting hoes higher, getting hoes higher
She got work in the morning, I’m getting hoes fired”
And we fuck, we smoke and smoke some more. Most of them have day jobs but they never call in.

“Why the fuck you call it purple when you mix it pink
You know I fucking mix the drinks when the shit’s too strong”
Sometimes is gets out of hand; i usually drink straight, even if it’s something like lean, but for this shit, ima have to take it down a peg or two…

“The night’s too long
I took too much and I’ve gone too far
And I might not make it
I might not make it this time
I might not make it”

“I might not make it
I might not make it this time
I might not make it
I might not make it
I might not make it this time
I might not make it
I might not”

“‘Cause I’ve been smoking a lot, and I’ve been drinking
I might not make it
Oh, no I might not make it”

“‘Cause I’ve been smoking a lot, and I’ve been drinking
I might not make it
Oh no, I might not make it
‘Cause I’ve been smoking a lot, and I’ve been drinking
I might not make it
Oh, no I might not make it”

“‘Cause I’ve been smoking a lot, and I’ve been drinking
I might not make it
Oh no, I might not make it”

Pullin up (Abel’s Verse only)

“We wanted the world baby
That’s why we ended how we ended
We chose to live how we live”
We wanted everything and anything and we realized we were holding each other back from getting. Even if we didn’t want to, we drifted apart.

“Well now you found the one, baby
And you ain’t tryna see nobody but him
Nobody but him”
And now you’re telling yourself you’re in love and this man is all you want, all you need. Do you really believe that? Do you really think i believe that?

“But I know you well
Girl I know you well”
I know you better than that

“Tell your man to wait inside when I’m pullin’ up
Tell your man to wait inside when I’m pullin’ up”
When i get there, you belong to me, no matter how ‘in love’ with him you claim to be. So do us both a favor and tell him to get lost.

“When I’m pullin’ up, when I’m pullin’ up, when I’m pullin’ up
When I’m pullin’ up, when I’m pullin’ up, when I’m pullin’ up”

Unfazed (Abel’s Verse only) “I’m unfaz…

Unfazed (Abel’s Verse only)

“I’m unfazed (woah)
I’m unfazed (woah)
I’m unfazed (woah)
I’m unfazed (woah)
I’m unfazed
I’m unfazed
I’m unfazed
I’m unfazed
I’m unfazed, ooh yeah (woah)
I’m unfazed, ooh yeah (woah)
I’m unfazed, ooh yeah (woah)
I’m unfazed (woah)
I’m unfazed (yeah, yeah)
I’m unfazed (yeah, yeah)
I’m unfazed (yeah, yeah)
I’m unfazed (yeah, yeah)”

“Turn that girl into a bad bitch
Turn that girl into a savage
And you might think she’s outstanding
Make that girl go through practice”
She seems naturally elegant and lady like, but after one night with me, she’s be completely transformed into something unknown to your usual type.

“Take three Xannies like a hat trick
Take another pill for that magic”
We’re about to get as close to the edge as we can get; it’s really the only way we can enjoy the night.

“These models ‘bout to get ratchet
These models ’bout to get ratchet”

“Give a fuck about what a source say
Don’t attach me to your name”
Just because social media is saying we cool doesn’t mean we are; get it right.

“All they wanted was more fame
All they wanted was more fame”
They figured getting attached to me would give them a higher rank, as if that matters to me.

“And you were always a distraction
It was never gonna last, and”
Honestly you’re just keeping me from striving and moving forward. This ‘relationship’ you’re trying to fabricate isn’t going anywhere.

“They will always be the past, and
They just tryna get reactions from me”
All the old stories get old real quick; they’ll remain irrelevant to me. The only reason they even come up now is because people wanna know if o still care. But clearly, you can tell me looking at my life without them, that i don’t…

Til dawn“I tell myself that I’ll t…

Til dawn

“I tell myself that I’ll take you for the last time

I’ll be over you eventually

Time after time, you seem to push me off

I understand what we have become”

This is it; after
tonight, I’ll be done with you for good. You’re so good, though. I’m addicted
to every inch of you. And maybe it’s because you treat me the way I treat
them. 

“You wash your neck when you leave, now I know your
routine

I was in love with your mystery

Now I just take what I can get from you

I’m not embarrassed to be what you want me to be”

You have to clean yourself up before you leave so no one
will suspect a thing. The fact that I don’t know much more about what it is you
do turns me on something severe. I accept whatever it is you give me. I’m not
ashamed 

“‘Cause unlike you I got nothing to hide

I don’t pretend to have any shame

I got a box we could put all your lies in

Until the end of days”

You have everything to lose if the world found out you
were with me. Unlike you, if the world knew about us, I wouldn’t run and hide.
So whatever lies you have to tell yourself are safe with me

“You know that I will be a call away

The call you make when you’re all alone

And I know that I will always be the one

You repent when you are done”

If you ever need me for anything, just hit me up. Once
you’re done with me you can leave. Use me however you please. As long as I can
be with you, I don’t care how. 

“Well here comes the sun

And you’re in my arms

And my denial keeps me on the edge of the chance

That you’ll stay through the night”

The morning has come but you’re still here laying next to
me. Something in me is telling me that you’ll stay for good. I hope that it’ll
be true; I tell myself that tonight will be the night but il always
wrong. 

“You
just wanna fill the void now
I can tell that you’ve been yelling at him all night long”

You
just want to forget what it feels like to be empty. You’re so sick and tired of
dealing with him, with someone who causes you so much grief that you’ll step
out with me any chance you get.

“And I can hear it in your voice now
He got you smoking extra packs a day”

He’s
stressing you out to the point that you’re destroying yourself. It’s pathetic really
but I understand.

“Don’t you worry bout me talking
I know why you’ve been coming
I’ll be quiet this ain’t nothing to me
Just wrap your legs around my waist
I won’t stop until you ask me
Don’t you worry bout us messing up my sheets”

I
won’t go around spreading what we do here to anyone else, I’m simply your
therapy session; I help ease the pain that he causes one stroke at a time. I’ll
do anything for you as long as you keep providing me what I want. And if you
decided when it’s all said and done that you’re done with me, that’s fine too.

“’Cause unlike you I got nothing to hide

I don’t pretend to have any shame

I got a box we could put all your lies in

Until the end of days”

“You know that I will be a call away

The call you make when you’re all alone

And I know that I will always be the one

You repent when you are done”

“Well
here comes the sun
And you’re in my arms
And my denial keeps me on the edge of the chance
That you’ll stay through the night”

“Well
here comes the sun
And you’re in my arms
And my denial keeps me on the edge of the chance
That you’ll stay through the night”

“You’re
gonna hate him
Then you’ll want me
Then you’ll miss him
Then you’ll hate me
Girl, I know you so well
Girl, I know your routine”

“You’re
gonna hate him
Then you’ll want me
Then you’ll miss him
Then you’ll hate me
Girl, I know you so well
Girl, I know your routine”

You’ve
done this to me so many times, it’s impossible at this point to hurt my
feelings. Maybe it’s because of you I don’t have any to give to someone who
actually cares about me. But I’ll survive.

“Well
here comes the sun
And you’re in my arms
And my denial keeps me on the edge of the chance
That you’ll stay through the night”

 

“Well here comes the sun

And you’re in my arms

And my denial keeps me on the edge of the chance

That you’ll stay through the night”

The knowing “I know what you didI knowSo…

The knowing 

“I know what you did

I know

So I’ma let you taste her

I ain’t washing my sins

I ain’t washing my sins”

You and I are two in the same. You can’t keep secrets
from me. I don’t regret the mistakes I’ve made so you can feel what I’ve done
with them. 

“Now we’re lying about the nights

Hiding it all behind the smiles

Take a look at what you did”

You’ve got me deceiving you the same way you deceive me.
We act as if everything is fine, but we both know the truth behind our lies.
This is all because of the damage you’ve created. 

“You probably thought that you’d break my heart

You probably thought that you’d make me cry

But baby it’s okay

I swear it’s okay

‘Cause I know everything”

You can’t hide your lies and secrets forever. I know you
thought it would destroy me, break me, ruin my life, but nothing hurt worse
than you keeping it all from me. I don’t care about what you’ve done, I only
care about what you did to respond. As if it would stay a secret for long. I
have eyes in all places, voices from regions you aren’t even aware of. I knew
before you even finished. I always knew. 

“Now
these tops don’t twist like they did before”

These
liquor bottles don’t feel me the way they did in the beginning

“Tried to keep you out
And you are done”

I
tried to keep you away, because you don’t seem to know how to behave when you
get out of your head.

“But baby it don’t hurt
Oh, like you thought it would
The more of you the merrier”

Your
behavior isn’t going to stop me from doing what I want, it won’t even slow me
down. In all honesty, I expected it from you. You’re the type of girl that’s down
for whatever, and I’m the type of guy that doesn’t give a fuck. So I you ever
decided to leave, I can say I saw it coming a mile away…

“Now
we’re lying about the nights
Hiding it all behind the smiles
Take a look at what you did, hey
You probably thought that you’d break my heart
You probably thought that you’d make me cry
Baby it’s okay
It’s okay”

“I
know everything
I know everything
I know everything
I know everything”

I Was Never There “What makes a grown man wan…

I Was Never There

“What makes a grown man wanna cry?
What makes him wanna take his life?”
What’s the only thing in the world capable to breaking down the soul and spirit of a man to the point where he has nothing left to live for?

“His happiness is never real
And mindless sex is how he feels”
When the joy escapes him and the love he once felt is gone, all he has left is lust and that will never be enough to replace the lost light.

“When it’s time, when it’s time, when it’s time
It won’t matter
It won’t matter
When it’s time, when it’s time, when it’s time
It won’t matter
It won’t matter “
When the faithful moment comes that’s I’m out of the picture, it won’t make much of a difference anyway.

“It was like I was never there
It was like he was gone in thin air
When it’s time, when it’s time, when it’s time
It won’t matter
it won’t matter”
Everything will continue to move forward in the world and My exist will be as it was before, meaningless…

“When it’s time, when it’s time, when it’s time
It won’t matter, it won’t matter
When it’s time, when it’s time, when it’s time
It won’t matter, it won’t matter
It was like I was never there
It was like he was gone in thin air
When it’s time, when it’s time, when it’s time
It won’t matter, it won’t matter”

“and now I know what love is
And I know it ain’t you for sure”
I’ve felt love, passion and happiness. It isn’t even close to what you truly are.

“You’d rather something toxic
So, I’ll poison myself again, again
‘Til I feel nothing
In my soul”
You want something as acidic and deadly as you, so i had to slowly kill off pieces of myself just to make you happy, and so i could feel again, but it wasn’t even worth it…

“I’m on the edge of something breaking
I feel my mind is slowly fadin’
If I keep going, I won’t make it
If I keep going, I won’t make it
And it’s all because of you
It’s all because of you
It’s all because of you
It’s all because of you”
It won’t be long now until I’ve lost all of myself. My mind, body, and spirit alike will be reduced to nothing. And if i continue on this path, it won’t only be my destruction, but the destruction of everything around and all who are caught in the crossfire. And it’s all your fault…

Outside“I’ll let you show me his movesLe…

Outside

“I’ll let you show me his moves

Let you do what he taught you

Let you reminisce how you used to do”

When we’re in bed together, do whatever you need to do to get
ready, even if that means doing the things that you and him use to do. Any
tricks you may have picked up from him, kinks that you prefer, even think about
what you use to have with him. 

“Girl I’m open to anything that’ll get you into that zone

And understand that we’re all alone

So you can slowly take off your clothes

Baby girl you know what’s in store”

I’m an open minded guy, and whatever you need to do to get ready
is always welcomed with me. It’s just here so get undressed. You know what to
expect from me. 

“Baby I will stay up all night

And I’ve been goin’ hard since last night

And I’mma go harder tonight

Wish you can see you through my eyes”

I can last for days, and never quit or get restless. I wish you
could see how beautiful you looked right now. 

“I’m tellin’ you this ain’t the same

And I know he’s still in your brain

I’m ‘bout to burn that shit into flames

Once I’m in you, baby”

I know what you’re used to, but this is unlike anything you’ve
ever had. You still remember how he feels, how he touched, how he fucked. But after tonight, you won’t have a trace
of him left to cling to. It’ll only be me. 

“Forget what you know

Make yourself at home

‘Cuz baby when I’m finished with ya you won’t wanna go
outside”

Get comfortable, relax. You’ll be mine for the night. You’ll be
so sprung off of me when this is all over that you’ll never want to
leave. 

“And I’mma work you like a pro, baby
And, you gon’ take it like one
Yeah you gon’ take it like one
And I’mma give it like you asked for it
Why, cuz you been talkin’ ’bout it
I know you been talkin’ ’bout it”

This isn’t a beginners course for me; I’m going
to give it to you hard, long, and deep, and that’s how you’re going to have it.
No less.

“Baby when I’m done with you, why
You ain’t sayin nothin’
Yeah you ain’t sayin nothin’
Ooh baby when I’m done with you, why
You ain’t sayin nothin’
Yeah you ain’t sayin nothin’”

When it’s all said and done, you’ll be on hush
mode; you were talking a lot of game at one point. You didn’t think I could
measure up to your last, when in actuality he can’t measure up to me. In fact,
no one can.

“You gon’ make me show off
All the pain that you feel you can tell that we
ain’t makin no love
But I’ll pretend
Oh girl, I’ll pretend
If you pretend then girl I’ll pretend
Let’s make it seem like we’re all we need in
the end”

I’m planning on being my cockiest with you
tonight. You think I can’t hang or that I’ll make it sweet and gentle. That’s
not how I play; I’m tough and I play hard. It’s no love making in this room,
only hard core fucks. But if it helps get you off, I’ll let you that I love you
and you’re only mine. If it makes you feel better, I’ll lie in to face until I make
you come, and when it’s over you’ll never hear from me again…

“Forget what you know
Make yourself at home
‘Cuz baby when I’m finished with ya you won’t
wanna go
Outside”

The zone“Why you rushing me babyIt&rsquo…

The zone

“Why you rushing me baby

It’s only us alone”

We can take our time with this here. It’ll be just us for the
rest of the night 

“I don’t wanna die tonight baby

So let me sip this slow”

I’m not tryna overdose so let me take my time with these drugs

“I’ll give you what you called for

Just let me get in my zone”

I’ll satisfy you the way you want, I just need to get there
first. 

“I’ll be making love to her through you

So let me keep my eyes closed”

It’s gonna feel amazing to you, but that’s only because I’m with
someone else in the back of my mind. I won’t look at you while I slow fuck your
because I want to be with her. If I see your face, I’ll have to stop

“And I won’t see a damn thing

I can’t feel a damn thing

But I’ma touch you right”

I can’t see you. I can’t feel you. You won’t know that because
I’m hitting all your spots just how you like it. I’ll satisfy you in ways
you’ve never had. And in ways you could never satisfy me. It’ll be amazing to
you, but mean nothing to me. 

“And I won’t see a damn thing

I can’t feel a damn thing

But I’ma touch you right"

“I’ma touch you right (let me sip this slow)
I’ma touch you right (let me get inside my zone)
I’ma touch you right (just let me)”

Let me take my time and get where I need to be before I begin to
please you; it’s the only way I’ll do it right.

“And I’ma lean, lean till I fall
And I don’t give a damn
I felt the ground before”

Ima do whatever I have to do to get where I wanna be to do what
you want me to do, even if it means crashing miserably. It’s nothing new to me
really; I’m so use to it now…

“I left it all behind, baby
I didn’t need no one”
the life before this, I can’t even remember really, but it doesn’t really
matter anyway. Ive never been one to settle down so it doesn’t bother me.

“But I’m here tonight baby
I’ve been alone for too long”

But tonight is a little different; I’m craving something more,
something unfamiliar, something almost addicting. I hope to find it in you…

“So, I won’t see a damn thing

I can’t feel a damn thing
But I’ma touch you right”

“I can’t see a damn thing
I cant feel a damn thing

But I’ma touch you right”

I’ma touch you right, ooh yeah (let me sip this slow)
I’ma touch you right (let me get inside my zone)
I’ma touch you right (just let me)

DRAKE”S VERSE UNANALYZED :

“Whoa, all these broken hearts on
that pole
Man if pole dancers an art you know how many fuckin’ artists I know”

“Got some new bills in the mail
Got some big favours I owe
Got some good things ahead of me
When these bad bitches let go
Well, girl let’s go”

“Walk your broken heart through that door
Sit yo sexy ass on that couch
Wipe that lipstick off of your mouth
I take it slow
She in love with my crew
She said make enough so I can try some
I thought taking drugs jus’ ain’t you

Be you…”

“Yeah girl, just be you
And I do this shit for my hometown
It being going down it ain’t new”

“That’s that north north, that up top
That O-V-O and that X-O
Your girlfriend at our next show
But it’s all good, don’t stress though”

“First night fuck, never really planned it
Take a deep breath, no need to panic
Lips so French, ass so Spanish
You don’t really like attention, I don’t know if she gon’ manage out here”

“But she got me all up in my zone
Said she like the view I got in this place
Shit I did all of that on my own
Oh yeah”

Wasted times 
“Wasted times I spent with someo…

Wasted times

“Wasted times I spent with someone else.
She wasn’t even half of you. Reminiscin’ how you felt. “
The past few months were a complete disappointment. I spend it with someone who didn’t even come close to you, and even when i was with her you were the only one on my mind

“And even though you put my life through hell,
I can’t seem to forget ‘bout you, (’bout you).
I want you to myself”
It was hard being with you; you didn’t make it easy for me, but i think that’s what made it meaningful. I don’t want to struggle with anyone else. I just want you 

“And now I’m askin’, who do you belong to now?
Who you give that love to now? Who you pullin’ up on?
Who you gettin’ sprung for now?”
Are you with someone else? Have you moved on and forgotten about me? Are you fixing yourself up to look your best for someone else? Who else is worthy of your time and attention?

“And what they got that I ain’t got? ‘Cause I got a lot.
Don’t make me run up on ’em, got me blowin’ up their spot.
‘Cause I ain’t got no business catchin’ feelings anyway;
I ain’t got no business catchin’ feelings
Catchin’ feelings”
Are they really that much better than me? I can pull up on you right now and prove to you I’m better. It’s crazy, the more i think about it, the more I realized I’ve lost myself in you. But i don’t care.

“These girls only want you when you’re winnin’ (winnin’)
But you’ve been with me from the beginnin’ (ooh, yeah, yeah)”
Groupie types are all the same, they only want you when you’re poppin’, but you were different. You saw all that glamour and it didn’t matter at all to you.

“And I know right now that we’re not talkin’ (not talkin’)
I hope you know this dick is still an option”
We haven’t spoken in a while, but if you hit me up right now and asked to fuck, i wouldn’t hesitate

“’Cause I’ll beat it up (I’ll beat it up, yeah)
I took my time to learn the way your body functions”
You know how i can make you feel, that indescribable feeling. It took some doing, but after studying your body so carefully for so many years, I’ve perfected my craft when it comes to satisfying you

“You were equestrian, so ride it like a champion (I’ll beat it)
This sex will get you high without no other substance”
You’re a pro at riding horses, so i want you to ride me like you know what you’re doing. When I’m finished with you, you’ll be so out of your mind, the feeling will resemble a handful of pills. 

“So who do you belong to now? (Who do you belong to now?)
Who you give that love to now? (Who you give that love to now?)
Who you pullin’ up on?
Who you gettin’ sprung for now? (Who you gettin’ sprung for now?)”

“And what they got that I ain’t got? ‘Cause I got a lot (I got a lot)
Don’t make me run up on ’em, got me blowin’ up their spot (blowin’ up their spot)
‘Cause I ain’t got no business catchin’ feelings anyway
I ain’t got no business catchin’ feelings (feelings)”

“Wake up
I don’t wanna wake up
I don’t wanna wake up
If you ain’t layin’ next to me
I don’t wanna wake up
I don’t wanna wake up
I don’t wanna wake up
If you ain’t layin’ next to me”

Privilege “Enjoy your privileged life &lsquo…

Privilege

“Enjoy your privileged life
‘Cause I’m not gonna hold you through the night”
I hope you’re happy with the life you chose. Because I’m not gonna be here to keep you company anymore.

“We said our last goodbyes
So let’s just try to end it with a smile”
We have our closure, it’s all over; let’s not stay bitter towards each other. No hard feelings?

“And I don’t wanna hear that you are suffering
You are suffering no more”
and don’t come to me complaining that your heart is broken, your heart isn’t as damaged as mine. You don’t feel this pain. It’s not the same.

“’Cause I held you down when you were suffering
You were suffering”
You didn’t hurt when you were mine, and you won’t hurt after I’m gone; but i will.

“Lose your way, way, way
I got two red pills to take the blues away
Blues away, way, way
I got two red pills to take the blues away”
I’ve become something I’m not use to so i could adjust to you. Now that you’re gone, i need a former substitute to deal with the pain, something I’m comfortable with, that’s I’ve had before, that’s I’ve longed for for so long.

“And I’ma fuck the pain away, and I know I’ll be okay”
I just need to fuck this out of my system or until i feel nothing again.

“They said our love is just a game, I don’t care what they say”
Our relationship was never real to the world, but it was real to us. Well…it was real to me.

“But I’ma drink the pain away, I’ll be back to my old ways”
I’m resorting back to my old life, and i don’t know how i feel about it yet.

“And I got two red pills to take the blues away”
And that included popping pills I’ve got so long avoided. I don’t know where this will go…

“I don’t wanna hear that no more, no more
No more, no more
I don’t wanna hear that no more”
