Inspired by Amerie’s “Why Don’t We Fall In Love?”
So I’m just sitting here with some questions on my mind
I thought females were supposed to be turned on by the grind?
But yet, I hear complaints about my schedule, my lack of time
Why are all the good girls so hard to find?
So I started to reflect, y’all know what happens next
I put pen to pad and my thoughts I project.
Why can’t we fall in love, that’s what Amerie asked?
Because if love’s a drug, some of y’all might need rehab
Here’s why we can’t fall in love, sometimes I get angry
With the brushes that society tries to make my painting
Because there’s a fine line between being critical and just hating
And because every girl I like, isn’t interested in dating.
Why can’t we fall in love? Because I graduate in 3 weeks
And there’s too many rumors floating around in these streets
Too many candidates laying around in someone else’s sheets.
Who think being “wifey material” is just knowing who plays on the Heat
They say love’s a game, I’m not sure if I want to play for keeps
They say it costs to be the boss and the price tag ain’t cheap
Therefore I can’t take you out to lavish restaurants
If that’s what you’re looking for, this ain’t what you want
Why can’t we fall in love? Because screenshots are the devil
Because my life is moving fast, I got the pedal to the mettle
You say I ain’t shit but who’s the pot and who’s the kettle?
Why can’t we fall in love? Because we both refuse to settle
Why can’t we fall in love? Because I don’t have chiseled abs
And I don’t have dreads or a beard, so you can do the math
I had to persuade hella people just to view me as equal?
Why can’t we fall in love? Because our shit doesn’t deserve a sequel
Why can’t we fall in love? Because you make hella assumptions
You’re like a magician, making something out of nothing
Because of y’all, I relapsed back into cussing
No matter what side I choose y’all still think I’m fronting
Why can’t we fall in love? I’m the topic of too many discussions
And you confuse the hell out of me, frustrating for nothing
Too often, you think that I’m really bluffing
And relationships aren’t something you need to rush in.
I ain’t perfect, matter of fact I’m not even close to it.
Happiness within our grasp but then we both lose it
Love is crazy man, can have you out here looking so stupid
And me? I can’t afford to look foolish
For some, it’s harder to find that one than to solve a rubix
So if love’s in the air? I’m like, “No. cupid”
Matter of fact, if love’s in the air, let me hold my breath
They told me to follow my heart, I got to retrace my steps
No one’s irreplaceable even Beyoncé got pushed to the left
And if Cupid’s taking shots, where’s my arrow proof vest?
I heard too many people say that “Love is like a drug”
And I was taught to be drug free, that’s why we can’t fall in love.
