[Verse 1]
Girl, I messed up real bad
I'm looking back on the days that we both had

I go to bed and I dream so hard
Of little mixed kids running in the front yard

I need you close, I need your kiss
I never ever, ever, ever knew a love like this

I, miss you more than Puffy missed B.I.G
I didn't think that you would leave a hole this big
In my life, you need to be my wife

I made this song while holdin' the pillow tight
And wishin' that it was you, what can a nigga do

Fuck this success, fuck these interviews
Fuck these phone calls, girl you are worth it
When I was happy, you were happy, you are perfect

When I was blue, you were blue, you're my Smurfette
I put my best chips on the worst bet

[Verse 2]
Girl, I need you like I need air
And fuck these other honeys, I will be there

I never ever, ever thought that I would be scared
Of living in a world when you are not there
My biggest fear is that you won't give a fuck
When you play this song on your MacBook
"Is that CG, yo, he's old news
I'm way too busy with my new dude."

The best time I ever had
Is kissing in my shitty ass Ikea bed

I wish that it was me instead
Feeling all your pain
I know that it is different now
It will never be the same but
I swear to God, our love special

You can be my number 2 like one pencil
Or you can be my number one, I will let you
In on my life, I've changed so much since you
Left, that hotel room

And if you're with another guy, go tell dude
That he could never keep us apart, he needs a better door
He'll always be the guy that you settle for
I'll always be the guy you're supposed to be with

Where the fuck is Cupid when you need him
I'm so Sam Cooke, I need Cupid too
I play Sam Cooke and I think of you


[Verse 3]
Baby girl we need to be together
This song ain't for my album
This song is for the better

And even though I'm living in a city full of strangers
They can see I'm different
They can see my anger
They can see my pain
They can see the way I talk about you
They see the way I'm living and I won't live long without you

I drink every night, I smoke more too
I think it is safe to say death or you
I need you more now than I ever did

I'm still the same guy you fell in love with
I need a second chance like I need a prayer
Sometimes I think God just doesn't care

I hope he has a plan for both you and I
So we can be together at a different time

Remember when I come home late
And you'd be crying over some food on a cold plate

I'll never do that shit to you again
You're the most beautiful girl I've ever known and my best friend
Baby girl we need to make up

And when I dream of you, I don't want to wake up
And when I don't dream, I don't want to wake up
I'd rather die now than not have your touch
Cause I miss you so much
