IT'S YOU (I THINK) Written By: Substantial Produced By: Kno
V1 Not much of a thug, first to admit I'm a sucker for love My life is living proof that love is a drug A teenage love... It happened over summer vacation She used to call me Slim, she was something amazing But I was two years younger in age then Yeah, she wasn't that old true But I lied like most dudes And leave it to your sis to come out and expose you But she didn't mind... 'cus I was deep in her mind and heart Likewise, sex I'm eagerly tryna start! Tight thighs I was fiending to pry and part Now she's crying "Stop", 'cus she's a former rape vic' Said I could have her but I had to get her pregnant Though I wanted sweetie badly I wasn't ready to be a daddy in a long distance relationship So now I reminisce of Stevie Wonder's Song called I Never Dreamed You'd Leave in Summer
HOOK Damn... Damn..... Damn!! I know it's you That's how I felt in the beginning love Guess I was wrong, 'cus look at how we ended up
Damn!! I know it's you! But maybe that's how love go? Tell me if I'm wrong baby I don't know
BRIDGE (It's like) we... Love to live and live to love Oh how... tough it is to give it up When there's... enough to get, can't get enough And when it gets rough, you ask yourself, "Is this love?"
V2 I got my swagger back (hey!) After a long stretch And mustered up the courage to step to this songstress Beautiful youngin I had met in the chorus And we connected while we were on the tour bus Yo, she taught me 'bout trust and religion Next thing you know, love started flooding my vision I know it sound flaky, but I cherished her greatly When life tried to break me, her whole family embraced me And I had been to more funerals than graduations A bit unusual, but far from an exageration But death was something that was still new to her I had no idea what it would do to her (Nope) The losses that she suffered, forever changed how we interacted Seems like our magic had flipped and turned tragic So, "End it while we're still friends" is what I suggested And she replied "I was hoping that you would get the message"
V3 I moved on from songstress to cheerleader Older, wiser, and my gears cleaner Cuts my baby locks now her family speaks to me Got closer though we didn't hang out frequently Stole my heart like she mastered thievery Words can't describe what this girl means to me Or meant to me, it feels like centuries ago Of course yo we broke up, eventually, you know Easy come... hey you know how the cliché ends I even told her that we'd be friends, think again I know I hurt this aspiring actress Probably uses my pics for firing practice Then outta spite, she fucked the man that I'm closest to At that very moment, I was officially over you Damn heart, just do what you s'posed to do! Guess I was wrong when I said that I know it's you
