I gotta hold on, hold on to my receipt
To redeem your love, that's exactly what I need
(It's kinda hard sayin this shit to ya face
So I do it over snares and bass
Music take me away) - [2X]
Wayne wants to get back into a relationship with a past lover, that will make him feel better. He doesn’t know how to tell that to the girl personally, so he will just talk about it over this song.
Hence the “hold on to my receipt”. Wayne wants to hold on to the memories they had together and doesn’t want to forget about her. But at the same time he realizes that they are finished and there’s nothing he can do about it.
