Nice for What


According to Big Sean, girls only pronounce hate for guys they love

I told you I hated Drake while under fire, but, in truth, I love him

With my entire deluded heart

 

Do you know how much I hate you

For apologizing to me when I did you wrong?

I guess I’d been feeling Nice for What

 

I won’t apologize for getting my tits sucked

In defense of all shamed sluts

Though, I’m sorry for sewing my heart shut

 

Another day with Lana Del Rey

Another night with an empty cunt

I want to say I can’t wake up without you

 

But you don’t want another selfish song

 

I need a strength

I’ve never had

To let the past be gone
