lyrics

You can never say you're sorry without staring at your feet
You're always on that defense before I've even had the chance to speak
And I've tried to walk away but you keep blocking the door
Said you can't go on without me but I can't do this anymore

You be like, "Where you at? Who you with? Girl, I'm tight"
Keep checking my phone while I'm sleeping at night
I tell you it's over, you make it a fight
Just call up them side chicks you fucking for spite

Now nothing's ever gonna be the same
But boy you've only got yourself to blame
So shut up and sit down and eat it while I go and spit on your name
My mind and my body my soul I gotta step up and reclaim

You told me to come over, said you're missing your baby
Like somehow I'll forget all of that shit you said to me
Like, "Mama you're crazy, got no right to yell"
You do what you want, I keep taking the L
Don't know how you got me so deep in this spell
Keep gasping for air in the smoke of your hell

Now nothing's ever gonna be the same
But boy you've only got yourself to blame
So shut up and sit down and eat it while I go and spit on your name
My mind and my body my soul I gotta step up and reclaim

You walk in at 2 in the morning
You're wasted and angry and horny
You push me down onto the bed without warning
I tell you I'm not in the mood, you say "Baby please,
Don't you forget who I am, don't be such a tease"
I lie there and take it, don't know why I didn't move
I leave with no bruises, got nothing to prove
My word against yours so I run far away
Just wanna forget that sick look on your face

Now nothing's ever gonna be the same
But boy you've only got yourself to blame
So shut up and sit down and eat it while I go and spit on your name
My mind and my body my soul I gotta step up and reclaim
