"look what you've done" as written by Jesse Woodard Iv, Aubrey Drake Graham, Benjamin J. Bush, Stephen Ellis Garrett, Jawann D. Peacock and Noah James Shebib....
It’s like o nine in your basement and I’m in love with Nebby
And I still love her but it fell through because I wasn’t ready
And your back hurt, and your neck hurt, and you smoking heavy
And I sit next to you, and I lecture you because those are deadly
And then you ask shit and we argue about spending money on bullshit
And you tell me I’m just like my father, my one button, you push it
Now it's "Fuck you, I hate you, I'll move out in a heartbeat"
And I leave out and you call me, you tell me that you're sorry
You love me, and I love you, and your heart hurts, mine does too
And it's just words and they cut deep but it's our world, it's just us two
I see painkillers on the kitchen counter, I hate to see it all hurt so bad
But maybe I wouldn't have worked this hard
If you were healthy and it weren't so bad
Uh, maybe I should walk up the street, and try and get a job at the bank
'Cause leave it up to me, J, and neeks, we're probably gonna end up robbing a bank
Then Wayne calls on my phone, conversation wasn't that long
Gets me a flight to Houston in the morning
Oh it's my time, yeah, it's on
He's thinking of signing me, I come home
We make a mixtape with seventeen songs
And almost get a Grammy off of that thing
They love your son and that boy gone
You get the operation you dreamed of
And I finally send you to Rome
I get to make good on my promise
It all worked out girl, we shoulda known
'Cause you deserve it

This shit real, should I pinch you?
After all the things that we been through, I got you
Look what you've done, look what you've done
Look what you've done for me now
You knew that I was gonna be something
We stressed out, and you need some, I got you
Look what you've done, look what you've done

It's like o six in your backyard and I'm in love with Jade
And I'm still in love, just when it's that real, is when it doesn't fade
And my father living in Memphis now he can't come this way
Over some minor charges and child support that just wasn't paid
Damn, boo-hoo, sad story, black American dad story
Know that I'm your sister's kid but
That still don't explain the love that you have for me
I remember sneaking in your pool after school dances
Damn your house feel like the Hamptons
For all of my summer romances
I never really had no one like you man this all new, she
Made the world I knew bigger, changed the way that I viewed it
Had all this fighting going on at the crib
You would calm me down when I lose it
Told you I think I'm done acting, I'm more in touch with the music
You said either way I'll be a star, I could go so far
Talked to me, to you got to me you
You tossed the keys and loaned me your car
Yeah, just a young kid in a drop top
Lexus hopin' that I don't get arrested
Just another kid that's goin' through life
So worried that I won't be accepted
But I could do anything, you said that, and you meant that
You took me places, you spent that, they said no, we went back
Checks bounce but we bounce back
I put all the money in your accounts back
And I thank you, I don't where I'd really be without that,
It worked out man, you deserve it

This shit real, should I pinch you?
After all the things that we been through, I got you
Look what you've done, look what you've done
Look what you've done for me now
You knew that I was gonna be something
We stressed out, and you need some, I got you
Look what you've done, look what you've done

    Song MeaningIn each verse, he talks about his past relationships while he was at his uncle's house and how the relationships just didn't work out. Then he talks about how his mom had pain problems and smoked, and he struggled to get her to see it was bad for her. She said that he was like his did, which angered him and make him move out, and his mom called saying sorry and that she loved him. Then he talks about how he had no money and no job, and should "walk up the street and try to get a job at the bank." Once he was famous, Lil Wayne called him and they did a "mixtape" together (which is Drake's album, So Far Gone, and the album title is saying that his mom loved him from the start, but now everyone loves him and he's just not the same boy as he used to be) and once he "almost gets a Grammy off of the album," he pays for his mom to get her surgery and makes good on his promise to send her on a vacation to Rome as she's always wanted, and he can pay back his uncle for the money and help that he gave Drake before he made it big.
    He also mentions his father, "living in Memphis now" and that he "didn't pay child support" and how it was like every other "black American dad story." Then he goes on to say "I know I'm your sister's kid" (he's talking to his uncle, and how he was like a father to him because of how much he loved him) and his house was where he spent time with girls he was seeing at the time. And how his uncle encouraged him to go on without acting and pursue his music career, he was always there to talk to. He changed the way Drake saw the world and even let him borrow his car ("toss me the keys to your car...just a young kid in a drop top Lexus, hopin that I don't get arrested") and although he was worried that the world wouldn't accept him, he always was there to keep giving him encouragement. And once he was famous, he was able to "put all the money in his accounts back," repaying him for all that he had done with helping him get to where he is, saying that he couldn't have done it without him. It all worked out, and he deserved it.

    General CommentThe experiences that have shaped our lives is the familial experience. It's all about the people who nurture us(mom says he's like his dad, pisses him off.). The way Drake talks about how his uncle treated him in a "world that wouldn't accept him," is poignant and points out that his success is attributable to his experiences as he was growing up.
