lyrics

[Intro: BRGT sample]
I said "Let's meet
4 in the morning, outside the hall
We can go to the pool"
You shook your head and said
"Girl, sounds cool"

[Verse 1: George Gavin]
Look
I can feel the static
The empty feeling that's the result of a lack of magic
I can tell you panicked
I can tell we famished
Lack of food for thought and water for love so baby how do we even manage
Eyes closed but still can't even imagine
When the crystal was perfect we holding on for fragments
But it's broken and it cut deep
And girl I know we run deep
But what's point If it's all just a deadly landing
Cuz these days when we get high we get really lifted
But this connection feels like we dropped it in the pacific
And I'd die Tryna find it again
But we generally getting lost In all the specifics
Sun and moon to me but the eclipse is taking too long
And this darkness linger I can't really see where this going
I guess we can't really stop the river from flowing
So Instead I'll just write you this poem
Yeah I'll just write you this poem

[Hook: BRGT sample]
You held my hand
Said "Let's be more than friends"
I said "oh yes"
You kissed my lips
I thought it'd never end

[Verse 2: George Gavin]
Look
I can feel the static
We were in love for like a year? Now we act like it never happened
Yeah I swear It's tragic
We acting passive
Acting like it ain't even matter
Long distance? we planned it
Guess feelings don't work with planners
Why we broke up? We keep telling them different answers
Young Aquarius, yeah girl I can tell that you're a cancer
Weird cuz I'm dying just as quick without you
Is this really the end of our pretty stanza
I loved you, hate that it has to be in the past tense
Girl your friends fake, I swear baby they plastered
Feeding you lies, making you feel deprived
Then I'm the one that come off looking the bastard
I know you hate me Cuz you loved the man that I can't be
Atleast for now that ain't me
Shawty I'm feeling empty
I'd hate to keep you here just to darken your soul
I'm sorry for time I stole
But atleast I can keep you whole
Wassup

[Bridge: BRGT sample]
I said "Let's meet
4 in the morning, outside the hall
We can go to the pool"
You shook your head and said
"Girl, sounds cool"

[Verse 3: George Gavin]
Yeah
And the flower blooms
And the waters we took for granted is all it consumes
And you never feel it's power cuz it's powerful
Cuz when it's true power you just feel when it's absent
Like rotation or the past tense
Desire to redo what was done
That's distraction
You not thinking about flower
You just thinking bout the moment
But what happens when you pass it
The flower and it's power is what's important
Now it's caught up in the static

[Hook: BRGT sample]
You held my hand
Said "Let's be more than friends"
I said "oh yes"
You kissed my lips
I thought it'd never end
