And all I had to do was put two and two together
But that just makes four, but not four-ever, damn
Imagine Wayne at a bar with some of the Ciroc mentioned before. His ex comes up to him all friendly-like again, trying to make conversation, since she “heard he’s doing better”. He realizes (when he puts two and two together) that she might possibly want to get back with him. He then realizes that it would result in the same product (4) causing the same pain, instead of “four-ever”, a.k.a. a meaningful relationship.
