Oh the irony, got the bomb indeed
But the problem is it's probably a deep past
Still I'm feeling of something I need bad
Thinking if I get her, I get her to need this

from Wale (Ft. Tiara Thomas) – Bad Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Wale knows what she is doing in bed, but her emotional detachment probably stems from some bad experience in her past. Even though she has issues Wale is willing to put in the effort to make it more than just a one night stand. He hopes that if he satisfies her sexually that will lead to a sexual connection to make her want him more. The irony, indeed, is that he’s just like her: he’s good in bed, but bad to her in a sense because he just wants the sex.

Similar to the football metaphor Wale uses in the second verse, when he says “deep past” it sounds similar to “deep pass.” In football a deep pass is sometimes referred to as a “bomb.”
