"Connect" as written by Noah James Shebib, Ross Matthew Birchard and Aubrey Drake Graham....
Yeah, isn't it amazing how you talk all this shit and we still lack communication
How beautiful our kids will be, girl, I don't need convincing
How every conversation starts with "this time will be different" oh
Oh the idea's fun
Oh the idea's fun
Oh the idea is so fun every time
At least we try for home run every time

Swangin', eyes closed just swangin'
Same city, same friends if you're looking for me
Same city, same friends if you're looking
I'll be here just swangin'
Don't talk to me like I'm famous
And don't assume 'cause I don't expect assumptions babe
I'm just tryna connect with somethin' babe, yeah swangin' eh

She just wanna run around the city and make memories that she can barely remember
And I'd allow her, talk about pussy power
Yea she just wanna run over my feelings
Like she drinkin' and drivin' in an 18 wheeler and I'd allow her,
Talk about pussy power
She used to say "You can be whoever you want, even yourself"
Yeah, I show up knowin' exactly who I was and never leave as myself
But when it falls apart, I'm always still down
To pick a million tiny little pieces off the ground
'Cause you would learn to love people and use things and not the other way around

Swangin', eyes closed just swangin'
Same city, same friends if you're looking for me
Same city, same friends if you're looking
I'll be here just swangin' eh
Don't talk to me like I'm famous eh
And don't assume cause I don't expect assumptions babe
I'm just tryna connect with somethin' babe I'll be here just swangin'

I remember when my schedule was as flexible as she is
She call and tell me be here before the sun up I be dressed before we hung up
I take Eglinton to 401 east and
Exit at Markham road in the east end
Where all the pretty girls are sleeping
My license been expired I renew it after the weekend
Fuck I know I said that shit the last 7 weekends
Girl I guess procrastination is my weakness
I hate stoppin' for gas this late 'cause this nigga's creepin' and I like how we're creepin'
Summer is comin' know you could feel it
20 on pump whatever I ain't got enough to fill it
Won't knock on your door
My uncle say, "You drive my whip like it's yours"
I got the pedal to the floor
I'm on my motherfuckin' way swangin'

Don't fall asleep on me, hang in there
I'll be there just swangin'
I'll be there just swangin'
I treat you good girl like you're famous
I know I'm late it's always the same shit
But don't fall asleep on me, hang in there
I'm on the road right now swangin, girl

    General CommentWith the baseball references I think this song is about trying to "connect" with someone, like you connect a baseball to a bat. And the two in this song always try to "hit a homerun" but fail. But it's all good because he's going to keep swinging till he hits something good.

    General CommentIt's a song about a relationship that doesnt really catch on because of his weed addiction.

    You can see he uses the term "Swangin'" as a code to smoking weed. He "swangs" at night, or driving to her house, and sometimes procrastinates giving BS excuses suco as "i dont like to stop for gas at night cause niggas creeping so I cant go to your house". Then goes home and smoke weed. "Swangin".

    Other references, classic weed addiction:
    License expired for 7 weeks, doesnt renew itens
    Always late

    That's it. I have been there also, Nice music

    My InterpretationThis is one of those "Can't live with, can't live without" relationships, the most toxic kind. A relationship where both parties can't accept that they just don't belong together and it is time to move on, they are so attracted to each other they just keep coming back for more punishment.

    'Yeah, isn't it amazing how you talk all this shit and we still lack communication" - This line shows that this relationship is based mostly on physical attraction and is not very deep.
