I forgot to call you on your birthday,
You swear you’re the last thing on my mind
There is nothing I can do to fix it
[all you ever asked me for was time]

When the lights don’t glow the same way that they used to,
& I finally get a moment to myself
I will realize you were everything I wanted
& you’ll tell me you’re in love with someone else

So can you do me favor
If I pull it together
Make it sooner than later
We won’t be here forever
& I realized I waited too long
But please don’t move on
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
Oh, you don’t need no one else

You just changed your hair & it looks perfect,
I wish I was the first to let you know
Every chance I get to make it better
I just find a way to let it go

When the lights don’t glow the same way that they used to,
& I finally get a moment to myself
I will realize you were everything I wanted
& you’ll tell me you’re in love with someone else

So can you do me favor
If I pull it together
Make it sooner than later
We won’t be here forever
& I realized I waited too long
But please don’t move on
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
Oh, you don’t need no one else

The girl or the world?
You see someone’s gotta lose
I thought I could have it all
Do I really gotta choose
What good is all the cash
If it doesn’t buy time
& what good is being famous
If I’m never on your mind

Nights fallin’
Lights glowin’
& I’m just tryin to pay the price on
& I don’t wanna feel the comfort from my ice showin
& I ain’t tryin to be without you at the right moments
Nigga nice goin
Is it worth it, that decision?
Cuz hearts breakin, I ain’t tryin to be in that collision
So I’m gonna dust my shirt,
And dust my pants
Cuz I better look good girl if this is my chance,
I swear

So can you do me favor
If I pull it together
Make it sooner than later
We won’t be here forever
& I realized I waited too long
But please don’t move on
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need no one else
Oh, you don’t need no one else

    General CommentAlright everyone, here is a guy's perspective.....

    College.

    Met a girl (Let's call her Macy) during the second week of 'math 1' class, we decided to study together. We would meet up each week and go through the course content. Week after week it was getting worse (for me anyways), Macy was becomming annoying as f*$^> (I guess we didn't 'click'). But I choose to maintain our agreement (and didn't want to hurt her feelings). Fast forward, now there was only 1 week left before exams Macy asked if her friend can join our study sessions, to which I agreed with.

    Macy brought her friend (let's call her 'Kelly'), she was pretty cool and made the session actually enjoyable. We all left agreeing to meet up hours before the exam date to do some last minute cramming.

    Exam date. We were all panicked and going through all the course material quickly (so there was little room for personal interaction), we did all the last minute example exams questions and proceeded to the exam (In the Gym 300+ people so we all sat separately according to last names).

    After the exam I met up with Macy and we discussed how hard it was etc. etc. (you know, the usual post-exam banter)

    Fast forward 3 weeks later, we find out our marks. I passed. Macy failed.

    There are two parts to this course however, 'math 1' and 'math 2' for example. So I proceeded with 'math 2', while Macy retook 'math 1'. During the first week of that semester I texted Macy asking for Kelly's number. After getting the digits I texted Kelly and explained to her who I was, (since we only met twice before), and asked her if she passed math 1 and if she was taking math 2.

    "Yea, I passed" she replied, I continued to ask if she wanted to study the course together, to which she agreed with.

    THE REST IS REAL LONG, I'M GONNA NEED SOME REPLIES OR ENCOURAGEMENT TO FINISH THE STORY.
