I might just text you
Turn your phone over, when it's all over
No settling down, my text go to your screen
You know better than that
CG still texts his ex. When she receives it, she turns over her phone to ignore it.
Things she does not do:
- Text back (right now)
- Delete the message
- Tell her new boyfriend who just texted…hey, he’s not her real boyfriend
CG is saying that after we’ve lost “the one”, we still keep a spot open for them even as we start new relationships. He’s telling her, “Don’t ignore me; you know better than that.” This all implies, of course, that she is cheating on her man with him—she turns her phone over to hide the notification.
