Went to speak but was like never mind
Lupe thinks back into the past, ponders the present moment, and is on the verge of verbalizing his thoughts. Then he realizes that the moment he has will be ruined if he talks about it, and thus distances himself from what’s going on. So in the end, he decides it’s best to keep his mouth shut.
Could refer to Lupe’s earlier song Words I Never Said
