XV – Melrose Lyrics
Yeah, what happened to us?
(Opens Pepsi can)
This is refreshing
Who did it? Who did it?
[Hook: Childish Gambino] x4
Someone gave you all my love, baby
All my love, all my love
[Verse 1: XV]
You inquire how I'll get back in the game
When I release this fire that's been trapped in my brain
Thinkin' will I still get tired and go back to my cage?
My team got lighter now watch me bring 'em the flame!
Dyin' to find out where Hoffa been hidin' out
Eyes on the sky, mind on the Soundcloud
Shouldn't have found out this was only a beat
It's probably childish to get on this but Gambino's a beast
Well the nerd is back, I turn the track much further than that
As I work in the batcave like Bane murdered my back
Thinkin' back when I'd invite girls to birthdays I had
And they would all bring their man as they flirt in the back
I never deserved that, it kinda hurt me in fact
And I was only 13, ho's did me worser than that
In the future, no longer a loser, and broads got computers
So Donavan's cuter with all his hip-hop kind of maneuvers
But now, my heart dark as my lungs inhale a cigarette
I guess my space was met because the internet
[Hook: Childish Gambino]x4
See that's what happened. Someone gave you all my love. All that love I was givin' to you, you just accepted it from any other motherfuckin' nigga. It ain't matter to you if it was authentic or fraudulent, you just accepted it, after I showed you what the real shit was. Damn, all because the internet. Shouts out to Childish Gambino, I related to that title like a championship pedigree, yah dig? And I've been enjoyin' all this music throughout the year, just like y'all have, yah know? You get to find love elsewhere, why can't I? That's all I'm sayin'. But it's far from over, baby. I ain't stoppin 'til I have you all to myself. 'Til it's only me. All for me. You know?
Get ready for the sweater
None of these niggas is better
"DELETE ALL THAT SHIT!!!!
DELETE ALLLLLL THAT SHIT!
NOT PLAYING WITCHU PEGGY!"
[Hook: Childish Gambino]x2
