"Shot for Me" as written by Aubrey Graham, Abel Tesfaye, Noah Shebib, Rainer Miller Blanchaer, Tyrone Armstrong, Brian Alexander Morgan and Ray Anthony Smith....
I can see it in your eyes, you're angry
Regret got shit on what you're feeling now
Mad cause he ain't like me
Oh you mad cause nobody ever did it like me
All the care I would take, all the love that we made
Now you're trying to find somebody to replace what I gave to you
It's a shame you didn't keep it, Alicia, Katia
I know that you gon' hear this, I'm the man
Yeah I said it, bitch I'm the man
Don't you forget it
The way you walk, that's me
The way you talk, that's me
The way you've got your hair up, did you forget that's me?
And the voice in your speaker right now, that's me
And the voice in your ear, that's me
Can't you see that I made it? Yeah I made it
First I made you who you are, then I made it
And you're wasted with your ladies
Yeah I'm the reason why you always getting faded

Take a shot for me, ooh
Take a shot for me, ooh
Take a shot for me
A shot for me
A shot for me

Okay look, I'm honest
Girl I can't lie, I miss you
You and the music were the only things that I commit to
I never cheated, for the record, back when I was with you
But you believe in everything but me girl, I don't get you
She says I know you changed, I never see you
Cause you're always busy doing things
I really wish she had a different way of viewing things
I think the city that we're from just kinda ruined things
It's such a small place, not much to do but talk and listen
The men are jealous and the women all in competition
And now your friends telling you stories that you often misinterpret
And taint all the images of your "Mr. Perfect"
I could tell that you been crying all night, drinking all summer
Praying for your happiness, hope that you recover
This is one I know you hated when you heard it
And it's worse because you know that I deserve it

Take a shot for me, ooh
Take a shot for me, ooh
Take a shot for me
A shot for me
A shot for me

May your neighbors respect you
Trouble neglect you, angels protect you
And heaven accept you

    General CommentThis song is an ode to all the women who have broken Drake's heart at some point and now regret it because he has gone on to become bigger than they imagined.

    The song has the followin main points :

    Drake is expressing pity on the women and sympathising with them on the deep feeling of regret they must feel for breaking his heart and saying look 'I made it, and you're wasted' its a very deep thing like his saying look at me, I did all those things for you and you effed me over but look at me now I'm here and now 'you're wasted with your ladies'.

    He tells them he can tell that they have been crying all night, drinking all summer and praying for happiness, after these women left for whatever reason they were never able to find a man like him and he sympathises with the unhappiness however he wants them to know he has now moved on and become a bigger person. They could have been part of this new dream but for whatever reason they left without thinking, now they must drink their sorrow and pain away because Drake is not coming back.

    He is also a little bittersweet cockiness notice he says 'I know this is one you hated when you heard it and it's worse because you know that I deserve it' which means he has done this on purpose so they can feel that pain and regret, he wants it to burn and sting them, because they effed him over, and now he getting a revenge.

    Finally, he bids them farewell, he hopes they can manage to get over the regret and prays to them 'may your neighbors respect you,trouble neglect you,angels protect you and heaven accept ' this is a strong and deep prayer. He is wishing them a final farewell and hopefully time and alchohol will help them get over the regret of breaking his heart and seeing him do so well after.

    General CommentFrom Hua Hsu review:

    "Bitch, I'm the man," he sings, softly and sweetly, over the Alphaville synths [], reminding someone no longer in his life that he's just fine: "First I made you who you are and then I made it." But once the drum machine whirs to life halfway through the song and he starts rapping, he grows ever more confessional, growling his analysis of where things went wrong. It's a strange inversion.
