J. Cole
I never thought I see that day that you’re my old girl
Now I’m stuck here hollering at old girl
Got one, Got two three four girls
Shotgun in the drop made her right
Hut one Hut two told them niggas take a hike
Then it’s on to the next one on to the next one
Hard to move on when you always regret one

Miguel
I wanted some time. I wondered if I was wrong
Trying to do right by you got me here
Now all I am is alone

Cause honey our closeness and that
don’t compare at all
And I bet all do is distract me but now
Deep down when I face it

Chorus : Miguel
All I want is you
All I want is you
All I want is you now
Now that you’re gone, gone, gone

Miguel
Coz being your friend is killing me softly
I hear voices
Wondering where I went wrong
It was my fault
And the wrong time I wonder so often
Regret get exhausted

Coz hon our closeness and
And that don’t compare at all
And I bet all do is distract me but now
Deep down when I face it

Chorus : Miguel
All I want is you
All I want is you now
All I want is you now
Baby now that you’re gone, gone, gone

Miguel
Coz they don’t smile or smell like you
Coz they don’t make me laugh or even cook like you
Coz they don’t photograph or even sex like you
Let face it I can’t replace
that’s why All I want is you

J Cole
I hit the club when you left me thinking that could heal
Trying to celebrate my Independence Day Will Smith
Baby gurl who I’m kidding
still sick Real sh!t
All my new bitches seem to get old real quick
Could it be you everything these plain bitches couldn’t be
Is it a sign from the Lord that I shouldn’t be
Lost in the Player way sorta get old to me
Got me on layaway, Girl you gotta a hold on me

I say I’m wrong, You say come again
Damn said I was wrong look don’t rub it in
I got a lot on my mind
Got a flock full of dimes
Like a line full of hoes, Look how they coming in
Just saying
you don’t wanna have me then somebody will
I’m playing
Weight on my chest like I body build
I’m praying
You ain’t content with trying to do your thang
Hey come back baby boomerang

That’s why
All I want is you now
All I want is you now
All I want ïs you now
Now that you’re gone, gone, gone,gone
You know that you’re gone

    General CommentI agree with LaLaSV18's interpretation but I want to add one thing: I think the reason he broke up with her wasn't because he didn't love her or want to be with her, but because of something else... He says "Trying to do right by you got me here" which makes me think he wanted to see what else was out there but he wasn't "over" her- just thinking he was doing the right thing by breaking up with her instead of cheating. Then he finds out that was really stupid. I don't know, just a thought.

    Amazinggg song, but terribly incorrect lyrics. Hopefully this will make more sense:


    (J. Cole)
    Damn, cold world
    I never thought I'd see the day that you my old girl
    Now I'm stuck here hollering at old girl
    Got one, got two, three, four girls
    Shotgun in the drop made her right
    Hut one, hut two, told them niggas take a hike
    Then it's on to the next, on-on to the next one
    Hard to move on when you always regret one


    (Miguel)
    I wonder sometimes, I wonder if I was wrong
    Trying to do right by you got me here
    Now all I am is alone

    'Cause her eyes, those hips, and that ass
    Don't compare at all, no
    And at best, all they do is distract me but now
    Deep down, when I face it

    All I want is you
    All I want is you, now
    All I want is you now
    Now that you're gone, gone, gone

    'Cause being your friend was killing me softly
    I hear voices
    Wondering where I went wrong
    It was my fault
    And the wrong time, I wonder so often
    Regret gets exhausting

    'Cause her eyes, those hips, and that ass
    Don't compare at all, no
    And at best all they do is distract me but now
    Deep down, when I face it

    All I want is you
    All I want is you, now
    All I want is you now, sugar
    Now that you're gone, gone, gone

    All I want is you
    All I want is you, now
    All i want is you now, baby
    Now that you're gone, gone, gone, gone, gone

    'Cause they don't smile or smell like you
    They don't make me laugh or even cook like you
    Girl, they don't photograph, no they don't sex like you
    Let face it, I can't replace it
    That's why all I want is you


    (J Cole)
    I hit the club when you left me thinking that could heal
    Trying to celebrate my Independence Day, Will Smith
    Baby girl, who I'm kidding
    Still sick, real shit
    All my new bitches seem to get old real quick
    And could it be
    You everything these plain bitches couldn't be
    Is it a sign from the Lord that I shouldn't be
    Lost in the player way, so they get old to me
    Got me on layaway, girl you got a hold on me
    I say I'm wrong, you say come again
    Damn, said I was wrong, look don't rub it in
    I got a lot on my mind, got a flock full of dimes
    Like a line full of hoes, how they coming in
    Just saying
    Don't wanna have me, then somebody will
    I'm playing
    Weight on my chest like I body build
    I'm praying
    You ain't content with trying to do your thang
    Then come back baby, boomerang


    That's why
    All I want is you
    All I want is you, now
    All I want is you now, sugar
    Now that you're gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
    You know that you're gone, gone, gone
    I want you back
