[Verse 1]

I grew up on Wonder Years
She was Saved By the Bell
I was Boys in the Hood, She was ATL
Used to sell weed to her roommate, that's how we met
Ol' girl didn't smoke, but she had jokes on deck
No disrespects, it's just the way it was
She claim 'cuz I was broke' and always say cuz
I was kind of always saying shawty and y'all
She smile everytime I did my little Southern drawl
Calls became frequent, we'd hang out on the weekend
Start feelin like, she's the one I've been seekin
Didn't take it far, third base, at most
Never sealed the deal, but came real close
I knew that if I hit it, I would have to stay committed
I was young, 21, man I just wasn't with it
Knew what was comin' and you can't run from it
When a feeling's that strong between man and a woman.

[Chorus]
She said she wanted more than a friendship
But I wasn't willing to bend
I said I wanted friends with benefits
But I was only trying to pretend
I didn't want you (want you)
Need you (need you)
Realy want to make you mine
I would never mislead you
Look at how I treat you
But girl, you got to give me some time

[Verse 2]
So, the first time we did it, it was aight
But soon I was creepin' to her room every night
Somethin' like magic, I felt I had to have it
Just the right fix, to kick my chick habit
You know it's always better, when you're lovers and close friends
It started getting deep, I kind of felt closed in
I went out and made a stupid mistake
I stopped returning calls, went on a few dates
Of course it got back to her, I knew she'd be hurt
But she didn't even trip and that made me feel worse
She showed me all that love, after I did her dirt
Now I'm feelin' like I'm the scum of the earth
She left for break and didn't leave her number
I thought about her every single day that summer
A sucker, for tryin to keep it on the under
Said next time I see her, I'ma tell her that I love her

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Would've swore I was a student the way I was waitin for the next semester to begin
The very first day, I ran up to campus and ran into one of her friends
I made small talk I didn't want to seem lame
Or too anxious, but when I said her name
The tears came, she started to break down
I could still see the look on her face now
Through the tears I could hear "drunk driver", "crash", "accident," "there were no survivors"
She was tryin' to continue to describe it, but just couldn't take it
And she ran off crying
Be lyin' if I said I wasn't filled with regret
I cried for three hours sittin' down on them steps
But even though you're gone
Your memory lives on
And for all I did wrong
I dedicate this song
To my first love...
This is for my first love

    He acted like he didn't care, which is the outer shell of most men, but deep inside he truly did. They tend to over think the relationship more than girls do because they're more afraid that the best thing that they've ever had would leave. The fear of being heartbroken, so he went out to do something stupid. He was infatuated, horrendously in love with this woman but was afraid to show it. Now he's regretting not to show her with the fact that she's gone.

    My meaning is that sometimes men do mistakes and of course woman to. And you don't think straight sometimes when your in love, and you act like a fool, because you think that's what the other person likes, but it doesn't, and when the mate is gone or left, its then when you feel how much you cared. And the regrets come along...

    My meaning is that you know you sometimes take the people who actually truly love you for granted you let them go because you think that person loves you so much that they'll always be there for you, but thats no true. Eventually some time some day that person will move on, and in this case unfortunately they passed away, and he never got the chance to let that person know what his real intentions and feelings were.
