Dark times

Ed:
“Waking up, half past five
Blood on pillow, one bruised eye
Drunk too much, you know what I’m like
But you should’ve seen the other guy”
I got into a fight at the bar last night. The guy crosses all the way sideways so i had to set him straight. And yeah, I’m pretty beat up, but you know how i am when I’m drinking.

“This ain’t the right time for you to fall in love with me
Baby I’m just being honest”
I’m telling you what i think you should know, not just what you wanna hear.

“And I know my lies could not make you believe
Running in circles that’s why”
And i cant convince you anymore than i already have. What more do you want.

“In my dark times I’ll be going back to the street
Promising everything I do not mean”
At my lowest I’m my most unattractive, and i don’t mean physically. I mean mentally and emotionally. I do a lot of bad things to a lot of good people but that’s just how i am.

“In my dark times, baby this is all I could be
Only my mother can love me for me”
This is all I’ve ever been and this is all I’ll ever amount to. The only woman crazy enough to love me is the woman i came out of…

“In my dark times, in my dark times…”

Abel:
“Light one up, let me bum a smoke
Still coming down, dripping throat”
I need to get the edge off. I’ve been tweaking all night and I’m finally starting to level out

“I got another man’s blood on my clothes
But it ain’t his fault, it’s the life I chose”
I got into a fight tonight. I wouldn’t blame it on the other guy, when I’m wired up i don’t know how to behave.

“This ain’t the right time for you to fall in love with me
Baby I’m just being honest”

“And I know my lies could not make you believe
Running in circles that’s why”

“In my dark times I’ll be going back to the street
Promising everything I do not mean”

“In my dark times, baby this is all I could be
Only my mother could love me for me”

“In my dark times, in my dark times…”

Ed:
“In my dark times I’ve still got some problems I know
Driving too fast but just moving to slow”
I have so much potential when I’m like this, so much is happening in my head. But my mind works faster than my body can react and i become chaotic.

Abel:
“And I’ve got something I’ve been trying to let go
Pulling me back every time”
And my past won’t let me live. No matter what i so, or how far i manage to get, I’m constantly getting sucked back into this life that i want to escape from. I don’t know how else to be…

“In my dark times taking it back to the street
Making those promises that I could not keep”

“In my dark times, baby this is all I could be
Only my mother could love me for me”

“In my dark times taking it down to the street
Making those promises that I would never keep”

“In my dark times this is all I could be
Only my mother could of loved me for me”

“In my dark times, in my dark times
In my dark times…”

Wonderful (Abel’s Verse Only)

“Oh, I love my city late at night, yeah
Oh, I love my bitches when they bite, yeah
Oh, let’s call some up and let’s get right, yeah”
My prime time is Toronto when the sun goes down. My fetishes are women like vampires. Let’s get these thins together and make some magic happen.

“We just landed in your city, go time
Driving to the venue, like we’re seeing no signs”
We here to start some shit, taking a straight shot to the venue to play this show and do what we do best.”

“She got all the passes, she don’t ever do lines
Bustin’ like she’s single, she ain’t wasting no time”
She gets backstage every time. She never has to wait. And when she’s back her with us, she knows exactly how to entertain us.

“You cannot record, that’s for the show now
Leave your phone, you get that later on now”
Keep your phone in your pocket or leave it at the door. We can’t let what goes on here get out. This is the private show.

“Pour that special drink that’s for my throat now
And take a sip”
Mix these up and make my favorite drink; it helps my throat after a long show like this. Feel free to have some if you’d like…

Live for

“Getting sober for a day, got me feeling too low”
They tryna make me slow down, tryna tell me how to live
I’m about to lose control”
I need to be out of my head to be myself; it’s the only time i dont think of my pain and fears. But i guess im doing too much too soon and people are beginning to worry.

“Well they can watch me fuck it up all in one night
I’m in my city in the summer, camo’d out
Leather booted, kissing bitches in the club”
Even if i am going overboard, I’ll just let them stand by. I’m feeling good in my comfort zone surrounded in a comfortable setting during the best time of my life.

“They wanna threesome
Then some
Spend whatever come in, fuck an income
Me and my niggas we ain’t never going broke”
They want to have sex with me, spend the night, blow this money, but only with niggas that can afford them, and that’s all of us.

“And you, have to
Do it all just to know where it gets you
Living dreams we can never afford
Now we sitting in the back saying”
But we have to keep up. If this were any other time in any other place it wouldn’t even be us in their place. But here we are.

“This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
With the people I’d die for
This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
With the people I’d die for
This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
With the people I’d die for
This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
With the people I’d die for”

Drake’s Verse unanalyzed:

“This the that I live for
This the shit that I’d die for
This the shit you can’t fake dawg
This the shit you need God for”

“How long do you think
It’s gon’ take for y’all to fall?
That’s a serious question ‘cause I’m seriously questioning all of y’all
Been touring the world man, I’ve done spent racks in all the malls
And they know my story, flaws and all, I still got plaques hanging wall to wall dawg”

“She just offered a strip tease, but she don’t look like Demi Moore
Hips all on 45, waist all on 24
And it’s all love in the city, still scream XO, when that Henny pour
But I’m that boy, not just any boy, what the **** you think that I’m in it for”

“Roll up in that thing, got hoes like Prince, but they know I’m king
Chubbs might hold that thing, if he get caught, he’ll be home by spring
Things I shouldn’t share, I mean for the sake of my career
I’m not trynna stunt, I’m just tellin’ you the truth, I swear”

“This the shit that I live for with the people I’d die for
This the shit you can’t fake dawg, this the shit you need God for
This that shit we really gotta talk about in person
There’s some shit I need to work on, but I know you see me working
Nigga, champagne”

“This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
With the people I’d die for
This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
With the people I’d die for
This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
With the people I’d die for
This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
This the shit that I live for
With the people I’d die for”

I feel it coming “Tell me what you really li…

I feel it coming

“Tell me what you really like
Baby I can take my time
We don’t ever have to fight
Just take it step-by-step”
Let me know what your fantasy is, and we can make it happen tonight. I enjoy taking it slow, teasing and pleasing you. There will never be a disagreement between us; let just see where it goes.

“I can see it in your eyes
‘Cause they never tell me lies
I can feel that body shake
And the heat between your legs”
You’re tempted by me, it’s obvious but i like it. I can feel how your body reacts to me, and that turns me on. I want you so bad.

“You’ve been scared of love and what it did to you
You don’t have to run, I know what you’ve been through”
Your past has been rough. You’ve been treated badly by people you’ve trusted. I can understand.

“Just a simple touch and it can set you free
We don’t have to rush when you’re alone with me”
Just one touch and i can release your frustration. And we can go as slow and as long as you want.

“I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe”

“You are not the single type
So baby, this the perfect time
I’m just trying to get you high
And faded off this touch”
You’re not the type to stay single. You enjoy the intimacy; i have plenty of ecstasy to give.

“You don’t need a lonely night
So baby, I can make it right
You just got to let me try
To give you what you want”
You don’t have to me alone tonight. I can give you company and satisfaction. Just give me a moment to prove it to you.

“You’ve been scared of love and what it did to you
You don’t have to run, I know what you’ve been through”

“Just a simple touch and it can set you free
We don’t have to rush when you’re alone with me”

“I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe”

“You’ve been scared of love and what it did to you
You don’t have to run, I know what you’ve been through”

“Just a simple touch and it can set you free
We don’t have to rush when you’re alone with me”

“I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe (I know what you feel right now)
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe (I know what you feel right now)
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe (I know what you feel right now)
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, babe
I feel it coming, babe”

Try me “Any time is the time Any time for you…

Try me

“Any time is the time
Any time for you to get my call, baby”
I’ll call you when I’m longing for you, when i miss you. This could be at any point. And i know i should be more careful but i just cant help myself.

“Are you alone, baby?
If he ain’t around, pick up your phone, baby”
Are you by yourself? Make sure he’s not around before you talk to me. That’s how it’s suppose to work.

“Can you try me? Try me
Once you put your pride aside
You can notify me, -fy me
You’re the best I ever had”
Give me a chance to show you what you’ve been missing. I’ve never been without someone like you and I’d really appreciate the opportunity.

“Baby girl, remind me, -mind me
Let me know if it’s on
And you know where to find me, find me
Havin’ thoughts you never had”
Don’t let it slip my mind, don’t leave me out to dry. If you really wanna do this let me know and then come looking for me. I can fulfill your wildest fantasies.

“I didn’t know you were down for him finding out
I thought you had some kind of love for your man”
If i knew you didn’t care about him knowing about us, i wouldn’t have tried so hard to keep it a secret.

“Well, I’m not tryna break up something
You’ve been workin’ out, you’ve been steady
But I’m ready to go all the way if you let me
Don’t you tempt me”
I don’t wanna be a home wrecker, but i can’t stop thinking about you. You’ve been with him for so long that me coming between you two seems wrong. But at the same time i don’t care.

“You’re lookin’ grown since the last time I looked at you
It might have been, been about a couple months
But I just got the picture that you texted to me
You ain’t steady, you look ready to go all the way
If you let me take you down on me”
And you’ve filled in so nicely. It’s been a while since I’ve seen you up close. You hit me up a while back and i appreciate it. But that also tells me that you want me just as bad as i want you. So what do you say?

“Can you try me? Try me
Once you put your pride aside
You can notify me, -fy me
You’re the best I ever had
Baby girl, remind me, -mind me
Let me know if it’s on
You know where to find me, find me
Havin’ thoughts you never had”

“Can you try me? Try me, try me
Once you put your pride aside
You can notify me, -fy me
You’re the best I ever had
Baby girl, remind me, -mind me
Lemme know if it’s on
And you know where to find me, find me
Having thoughts you never had”

“Better try me
Don’t you mess with me now
Don’t you mess with me
The way I kissed your scars
The way I fixed your heart
Don’t you miss me, babe?
Don’t you miss me, baby?”
Our history goes back years. I loved you once. You loves me once. I healed you once. You’ve healed me once. Don’t you remember? Don’t you miss it? Don’t you want me anymore?…

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 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…
