Take a look at me,
I look into your eyes,
take a look you'll see,
I'm looking right through you,
I can read your lies,
They're drifting in your breath,
it gives me the chills.
I'm blind with the effects of your beauty and perfect fake smile,
your smooth lips mouthing every word, like a perfect crime,
it's funny how you're not worth my time,
you're worthless like a dime,
a cover of a book I've already read.
I'll shut you down, you're not worth it.

There's trust and too much control (and you've got) the worst of both worlds
It's bros before hoes so don't lie bitch when you know you've been caught.
(You're getting caught before you get dropped, and I'm heading out)
Are you out there, this is so unfair, are you out there

It's kind of crazy knowing you're the only one that's the same,
Burning bridges is the way to get off playing your game
Now I'm sorry for the reason you have to believe,
I just imagined that we could run away and let go.
(Way away from here I'll go), it's getting out of hand, don't like the change of plans, we let go
Don't like the change of plans, it's getting out of hand, we let go let go
So leave your bags at home, your not welcome.

There's trust and too much control (and you've got) the worst of both worlds
It's bros before hoes so don't lie bitch when you know you've been caught.
(You're getting caught before you get dropped, and I'm heading out)
Are you out there, this is so unfair, are you out there
let go.

I'll shut you down.
You're coming around to what you saw, you never thought that I would walk,
I'll shut you down.
You're getting away with what you got, forget the change and all you've brought,
I'll shut you down.
Soon the end will be too close, and when it comes, I'll give a toast,
I'll shut you down.
I've read about you on bathroom doors, I never knew you were a whore,
I'll shut you down.

There's trust and too much control (and you've got) the worst of both worlds
It's bros before hoes so don't lie bitch when you know you've been caught.
(You're getting caught before you get dropped, and I'm heading out)
Are you out there, this is so unfair, are you out there

Let go
(Way away from here I'll go), it's getting out of hand, don't like the change of plans, we let go

    General Commenti agree with FrikknPr0, im not a big fan of autotune but this was an exception haha. so i think this song is about this pretty girl he's in love with. but she's the kind to cheat on a guy for another, the guy can start figuring it out that she's doing things behing his back so he's saying she's not worth it anymore. he thought he could trust her and now he still wishes he could but can't after all the things she's done. he can imagine what the both of them could do but now he's gonna try forget her and part ways, saying she's a hoe and a bitch :D

    General CommentCan't stop listening to this song
    I think this is easier to read

    Take a look at me,

    General CommentI actually deleted this song.. But i guess after seeing it being the most commented.. -.- I'll listen to it again. I just can't fucking stand over autotuning a song. I mean you're talented just be you.
