She living the life aquatic
Hanging out In the tropics
Picking out every topic
Just follow or you'll get lost, it's
The only message I got, it's
The meaning of being on it
Im watching from this perspective
You're soon to become an option
I'm honestly tryna help you
These women only propel you
To sell yourself under valued
So lift yourself and what have you?
A moment of reaching greatness
Open up conversation
You know you could do it better
If she leaving homie tell her, tell her
Don't stop, don't go
We got what you need here
Don't stop don't go
Give this moment just a little time to grow
Ok I got you in my mind rift,
time split, open up the sky into your eyelids,
words between us both aligning souls until our minds drip,
leave it open ended take the time to try and find it
