A tornado flew around my room before you came
Excuse the mess it made, it usually doesn't rain
In Southern California, much like Arizona
My eyes don't she'd tears, but, boy, they bawl

When I'm thinkin' 'bout you
(Ooh, no, no, no)
I've been thinkin' 'bout you
(You know, know, know)
I've been thinkin' 'bout you
Do you think about me still?
Do ya, do ya?

Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Oooh, oooh)

Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Oooh, oooh)

No, I don't like you, I just thought you were cool
Enough to kick it
Got a beach house I could sell you in Idaho
Since you think I don't love you, I just thought you were cute
That's why I kiss you
Got a fighter jet, I don't get fly it, though

I'm lyin' down thinkin' 'bout you
(Ooh, no, no, no)
I've been thinkin' 'bout you
(You know, know, know)
I've been thinkin' 'bout you
Do you think about me still?
Do ya, do ya?

Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Oooh, oooh)

Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Oooh, oooh)

Yes, of course
I remember, how could I forget?
How you feel?
And though you were my first time
A new feel
It won't ever get old, not in my soul
Not in my spirit, keep it alive
We'll go down this road
'Til it turns from color to black and white

Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Oooh, oooh)

Or do you not think so far ahead? (Ahead)
'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout forever (Oooh, oooh)

    In his comimg out letter he mentions he spents his summers with a man he ended up loving, the way he loved him was something he never felt with a woman and in his song forrest gump that was based on a man he loved, he mentions the man leaving him and wondering does he still love him... I think its the same in this song because he says i remember how could i forget how you feel though you were my first time a new feel it will never get old nor in my soul not in my spirit keep it alive... He never mentions a woman... Never says she or her

    I think he means he thinks all about his ex or girlfriend who has ran away from him and he also tries to get his gf back to him... Not bad of a song by frank ocean i think he tries so hard to make up his lyrics this also makes me think about my gf i miss her so much...

    As he says "boy i brawl". He kind of clearly means he talking about a man. But threw out the rest of the song it can believe that he is reflecting on a woman this whole song. But idk personally... Its a nice song, i use this song to reflect on my ex that i currently trying to get back... I just kindof hope he ment this song for a woman and if he didn't then by all means good for him.

    I think the meaning of this song is like saying I love you but you don't believe me, it also shows that he trying to say, remember all the good thing s we use to have, all the good love shared and he wants to make her remember there love!
