[Drake - Verse 1]
Cups of the Rose
Bitches in my old phone
I should call one and go home
I've been in this club too long
The woman that I would try
Is happy with a good guy

But I've been drinking so much
That I'ma call her anyway and say
"F-ck that nigga that you love so bad
I know you still think about the times we had"
I say "f-ck that nigga that you think you found
And since you picked up I know he's not around"
(Are you drunk right now?)

I'm just sayin', could do better
Tell me have you heard that lately
I'm just sayin' you could do better
And I'll start hatin', only if you make me

Uh, cups of the XO
All my people been here
I see all of my friends here
Guess she don't have the time to kick it no more
Flights in the morning
What you doing that's so important?
I've been drinking so much
That I'ma call her anyway and say
"F-ck that nigga that you love so bad
I know you still think about the times we had"
I say "f-ck that nigga that you think you found
And since you picked up I know he's not around"
(Are you drunk right now?)

I'm just sayin', could do better
Tell me have you heard that lately
I'm just sayin' you could do better
And I'll start hatin', only if you make me

I think I'm addicted to naked pictures
And sittin talkin' 'bout bitches
That we almost had
I don't think I'm concious of making monsters
Outta the women that I sponsor til it all goes bad
But shit it's all good
We threw a party yeah we threw a party
Bitches came over yeah we threw a party
I was just calling cause they was just leaving
Talk to me please, don't have much to believe in
I need you right now, are you down to listen to me
Too many drinks have been given to me
I got some women that's living off me
Paid for their flights and hotels I'm ashamed
Bet that you know them, I won't say no names
After a while girl they all seem the same
I've had sex four times this week I'll explain
Having a hard time adjusting to fame
Spreading that mixture, I've been talking crazy girl
I'm lucky that you picked up
Lucky that you stayed on
I need someone to put this weight on

I'm just sayin', could do better
Tell me have you heard that lately
I'm just sayin' you could do better
And I'll start hatin', only if you make me

Just throw up while I hold your hair back
Her white friend said "you niggas crazy"
I hope no-one heard that
I hope no-one heard that
Cause if they did, we gon be in some trouble

    I think he realized he loved her when it was too late. He realizes she's different from the others. She has a connection with him that he's never felt with the others. And alcohol tends to bring out the things you normally couldn't say. So he's calling hoping to make some change and get her back. I'm going through this exact same thing with my ex. I guess that's why I'm feeling this song so much.

    What I think it means is that he used to go out with a girl but he lost her due to mistakes he made because "she's happy with a good guy" but they do still have a connection because she's answered his call.
    Also due to drinking the "cups of the rose" he's thinking about getting with her tonight instead of anyone else because he's still go her on his mind because he feels that she wasn't one of the types of girls who he had to pay for attention & company.
    This is just my opinion.

    He messed up and lost her. He knows she was the best thing that he ever had, but he's lost and trying to find happiness in hoes and drinking/drugs. He wants to change, he wants to be the man that he knows she deserves, but he's caught up in the game. No matter how badly he messes up, and even though she's with someone else now, she's still there for him cause she knows how lost he is and how much he needs someone to be there for him.

    I think that's what my ex bf feels, cause I know he's not a bad guy he let me walk away cause he knows all hes gonna do is hurt me, & he thinks that by acting like an a* to me & him being a man w***e is gonna make me hate him which I don't but hey people make mistakes I forgave & am glad he's "moving on" cause it's my turn to move on.
