"Heartbeat" as written by and Donald Mckinley Glover Ii....
I wanted you to know
That I am ready to go, heartbeat
My heartbeat
I wanted you to know
Whenever you are around, can't speak
I can't speak

I wanted you to know
That I am ready to go, heartbeat
My heartbeat
I wanted you to know
Whenever you are around, can't speak
I can't speak

I know what your boy like
Skinny tie and a cuff tight
He go and make breakfast
You walk around naked
I might just text you
Turn your phone over, when it's all over
No settling down, my text go to your screen
You know better than that
I come around when you least expect me
I'm sitting at the bar when your glass is empty
You thinking that the songs coming on to tempt me
I need to be alone like the way you left me
You start calling, you start crying
I come over, I'm inside you
I can't find you
The girl that I once had
But the sex that we have, isn't half bad
The text say that "It's not fair"
That's code for "He's not here"
And I'ma flirt with this new girl
And I'ma call if it don't work
So we fuck, till we come, to conclusions
All the things that we thought we was losing
I'm ghost and you know this
That's why we broke up in the first place
'Cause

I wanted you to know
That I am ready to go, heartbeat
My heartbeat
I wanted you to know
Whenever you are around, can't speak
I can't speak

I wanted you to know
That I am ready to go, heartbeat
My heartbeat
I wanted you to know
Whenever you are around, can't speak
I can't speak

It's late night Thursday
I know that you heard me
But you don't want the same thing
Well two can play that game
So I'm chilling with my girlfriend
But she not my real girlfriend
She got a key to my place but
She's not my real girlfriend
Stupid, so dummy
Say the wrong thing and wrong girls come runnin'
I'm paranoid that these girls want something from me
And it's hard to make a dime go one hundred
And my dude freakin' out over a worse fate
She on time, but she late for they first date
'Cause he went and tried out all new condoms
Slipped off in a threesome, good problems?
Right? Wrong
Askin' him if she gonna play games
With the super smash brothers, but none of them you
I miss the sex when you kiss whenever you through
Sixty nine is the only dinner for two
I was wrong, but would you have listened to you?
Uh, you were crazy
I got a heart, but the artichoke
Is the only thing girls want when you in that smokin' light

I wanted you to know
That I am ready to go, heartbeat
My heartbeat
I wanted you to know
Whenever you are around, can't speak
I can't speak

I wanted you to know
That I am ready to go, heartbeat
My heartbeat
I wanted you to know
Whenever you are around, can't speak
I can't speak

So we're done? This the real shit?
We used to hold hands like field trips
I'm a jerk, but your dude is a real dick
I read his post on your wall and I feel sick
He ain't cool, he ball and all that
But he just a fake nigga who blog in all caps
You coulda' wait to date
I'm going straight for your thighs like the cake you ate
I give a fuck about the niggas that you say you hate
You know that I'm the best when I'm a-fake-tionate
I'm the best that you had, face it
J and Keyshia are related, racist
I give you money, then you burn it, like you made off
She ain't a killer, but she'd fucking blow your head off
I know he wondering, "What the fuck you hiding?"
That we dated like raps about Bin Laden
Ayo, fuck this
Are we dating? Are we fucking?
Are we best friends? Are we something in between that?
I wish we never fucked, and I mean that

But not really, you say the nastiest shit in bed and it's fuckin' awesome

    General Commentnah it's not about a fuckbuddy relationship.

    he's singing to his ex. saying that he knows what type of guy her new boyfriend is and that he's a dick. he's obviously hung up on her and they still have chemistry so they start sleeping together again but this just makes him more frustrated cos he loves her but she's messing around.

    i thought the last line was

    'but you say the nastiest shit in bed, it's fucking awful'

    always thought it was quite tragic, as if she was careless because he really cares about her but i guess 'awesome' makes more sense.

    either way, great tune. wish i could remix it

    Lyric CorrectionI'm pretty sure the line "I give you money, then you burn it, like you made off"
    is supposed to be "I give you money, then you burn it like you MADOFF," as in bernie madoff.

    General CommentThis song is exactly me and my ex's relationship.
    At first I turned him down but couldn't resist hooking up again, but he isn't the same guy I dated.
    "I can't find you, that girl that I once knew"
    But the sex is good so we just keep hooking up knowing that he is dating other girls on the side.
    He isn't interested in getting back together so I try sleeping with other guys to make him jealous
    "well two can play that game"
    But it just made me feel worse about the whole thing.
    "say the wrong thing and the wrong girls come running"
    And know he's dating someone else and it makes me sick.
    "I read his post on your wall and I feel sick"
    And I always wonder if it's because I agreed to sleep together again.
    "you coulda wait to date, i'm going straight for the thighs"
    We're still friends, we hook up on the side even though he's dating some other girl;
    "are we dating? are we fucking?
    are we best friends? are we something in between that?"
    I feel exactly the same as the end of this song.
    "I wish we never fucked and I mean that.. but not really"

    It's such a confusing situation because I am still in love with the guy I dated but it feels like I'm sleeping with someone else, but the sex is good.
    When I heard this song I got shivers, someone else who totally understands the situation!

    My InterpretationI think he's singing about a "friends with benefits" type of relationship.
