Jay Shalé – Basically. lyrics

Basically I’m not what you need
And I never understood when you said that shit to me
Back and forth 'cause I tried everything
But I couldn’t make sense of the things you do to me

[Verse 1]
Threw it at me didn’t think fast
For future reference, no asking bout the past
Simple answer I been through that
Wake up, stretch, work
Take a breath

When I’m out of it, you’re in my mind
And when I’m on something new
You fell off
Like where did time, go?
It’s so crazy that I’m still sane
Even when I’m going crazy
Maybe the situation made me
Maybe you didn’t feel it fully
Maybe you were too good to believe but


[Verse 2]
In a perfect world I'd have you sitting here with me
We’d be eating salmon with a couple greens
Pinky’s up cracking jokes while we drinking tea
The apple of my eye, you mean the world to me

And I looked you up on Facebook and saw that you had graduated
Your Instagram is private
I don't check it out in public
I used to never stay away from it

I just have so many questions
Does your brother still driver with uber?
Drum sessions in between maneuvers?
And do you still paint?
You finally sell that michael jackson portrait that only took a couple days
To make?
And how’s your family?
I hope you’re not still mad at me for certain things you were right
About, that Inow write about
And right about now
I’m feeling kinda mixed up
How can something you thought was forever, just switch up


[Bridge, pre-Hook]
