lyrics

[Dave] They say phrases beginning with all women are never true/ Unless its followed by a action or a verb/ And I'm attracted to them nerds so all women'll never do/ I only judge em by they actions, never words/ Reenacting in my mind, that's exactly what u deserved/ Cuz all u wanted was a man, and now yo math is getting worse/ Multiply my commitment, split the passion by the third/ Then divide my ambition, now thats half of what we were so/ You coming to the east side just to see me again/ What happened to that brief time of just being a friend?/ It got us making out in the stairs when no one looking/ He know yo heart aint there but he don't know I took it [Hook] You are the one that got away from me, you are/ But we both know this road can only go so far (2x) [Dave] We got acquainted through yo ex, when the two of you dated/ Fell in love via lust, and the sex was amazing/ Unprotected for a second then it got consistent/ She like it slow on top, yeah that was our position/ We both needed more, but you wanted me/ and I wasn't ready to fill that role with you in that scene/ But now my new new getting old, altercations more extreme/ And you making alterations to the fold sow it seams/ You coming to the east side just to see me again/ What happened to that brief time of just being a friend?/ It got us ducking to the potty when nobody looking/ You in the city, but they don't know that yo heart in Brooklyn [Hook 2x] [Chris] Tried to told him gotta know when to hold em when to fold em/ Now that new new getting old but the flood gates is open/ See perfect timing is golden, shoulda passed but she open/ Guess vision is 20/20 quarterbacking Monday mornings/
