[Verse – Dave]
She love it, but she aint mi amor yet, I’m on here
Due to the streets and they support of me and mon frère
They all ears like martin with a bald head
But its snakes in the grass homie, I’m on my John Deere
Now everybody know a nigga like I’m on cheers
I ain’t a player but I’m crushing if you aren’t clear
And I really don’t save em but I’m questioning your heart dear
So dip or sit your ass down like lawn chair
She like what if I aren’t here, au contraire, no what if
Girl you wasn’t, if you want to play the field its nothing
I be on my New Edition, if it isn’t love
You be on that new religion, oh my god, when I’m in them guts
Cool it now baby I’m superstitious, bruises, stitches, cuts
Lead to scars I can’t explain and women superficial, thus
If the shoe don’t fit you struck, so if you don’t get enough
Of what you need from this relation, I’m complacent with that instant love

[Hook – Sample with Dave adlibs]
Instant Love [they give me]
Instant Love [uh huh]
[My gear is in and I’m in the in crowd]
[So all the wavy light skinned girls is feeling me now]

[Verse – Chris]
Back on the block like a runner or slave auction
But I never leave my fam and I aint running from nothng
Still I gotta get this cheddar tell my dreams I’m coming
Tell the streets I’m home, tell these women I’m still stunting
Come through killing the game like I’m a deer hunter
My dear, promise I’m here for a limited time only
And I gotta make time for the fam and the homies
The city got my heart, never forgetting where home is
They love me on the block so you know whenever I’m home its
Harolds and 40s, Taurus for the hoagies
Lake Shore Drive and I’m Southside roaming
Yeah he been gone, but you know I’m coming back
I been loving the block since legomaniacs
92nd where he at, 82nd is what raised me
Ask me bout the block [It’s the Paxtons baby!]
And I was born on Aberdeen so you know they always gave me

[Hook – Sample with Chris adlibs]
Instant Love [they show me]
Instant Love [uh huh]
[Streets want me to come back home]
[And you know when I heard that, when I was back home]
