[Intro]

It's ideal

You need someone to tell you how to feel

And you think your happiness is real

There's so much more the world has to reveal

But you choose to be concealed

So you're somebody now

But what's a somebody in a nobody town

I don't think you even know it

So you're somebody now

But whats a somebody in a nobody town

You made enough to quit a couple years ago

But it consumes you

It's everywhere you go

And just the thought alone got you trippin'

Got you losing your mind

And I don't blame you

It's everything you know

All this time this ain't you

Da da da da

I decide when we're through

[Hook]

I love you love

This love

We're professional

I love you love

We're sophisticated

At lovin' [18x]

[Verse 1]

What does it mean

When your heart's already numb

You're professional

Won't treat it like it's personal

No, this is just love

It always makes it's way back around

It's dispensable

To fall is unacceptable

Cause everything you've been through made you stronger

And every day you learn about yourself

And nothing really played out how it's supposed to

Depending on somebody else's wealth

But now you know the value of a dollar

And girl I make enough of it to spend

I love the way you've put yourself together

I love the way you make that body bend

For me again

Oh yeah

[Hook]

[Verse 2]

All of those nights you were up early holding your own

Girl, you've got it made

Had you blaming yourself when life did you wrong

Now, you've got it made

Getting rich to the drums of your favorite song

Girl, you've got it made

Because your freedom was here in this cage all along

Oooh, how did you drain all the soul from your eyes

How did you teach, teach yourself how to smile

In a world where your dreams can't be real, no

Every touch that you sell is a lie

[Hook]
