the first person i ever took seriously was you, mistake.
yet, you had me walking around without a clue, shady.
i never thought you would be the one to make me blue, cold.
and now i bet you’re wondering how i knew, lemme tell you.
i heard it through the grapevine.
i sensed something was different but just shrugged it off.
game night, your friends brought up “Never Have I Ever…” and you coughed.
little did i know, you weren’t just mine.
but instead of being honest, i heard it through the grapevine… and i’m just about to lose my mind.
you made a new life behind my back.
and i feel guilty, like its something i lack.
my whole world is shook you see.
cus you mean[t] that much to me.
and my momma warned me from the gate.
“Son, i know she has a big butt and a smile, but just wait. look at the signs. don’t ignore. you’re strong. i don’t want you to break.”
“naw. i know what i’m doing. trust.
i like her. LOVE! it ain’t just lust.
and she loves me. i know for a fact. if i’m wrong on this one, i deserve a smack!”
my heart was torn apart, just yesterday.
you coulda just told me you weren’t feeling me.
cus now, its like you’re killing me.
and this other guy didn’t even last. he’s chilling, no idea of these tears.
and i’m paranoid to start over, these are true fears.
your friends knew. social media. wow. i looked like a fool. so F them too.
F love. F your family. and F you.
and you take no accountability. always a “well…” or “i just don’t see…”
you act like this is a curse word. say it with me: SORRY.
ups and downs for relationships doesn’t mean disrespect and cheating.
now i’m trying to erase memories of you, Ctrl+Alt+Deleting.
and you know i loved you. ask anyone, ask yelp!
but you didn’t need love, you needed someone in a worse condition than you. so you found someone else.
and i heard it through the grapevine. not much longer would you be mine.
