Nappy Roots - Hey Love Lyrics




Hey love it's been a while since we
But I think of all the things that we try to be
How for days I just laid in your smile
Head resting on the one thing that kept us alive
And we let it crumble and now I... I'm moving slow
Could but I won't let go ask me and I will tell you so we are so over
Hey love life it's funny that way
But if I held on child I swear I'd hate you every day
... hey love

Hell no I don't miss her even though she was all I wished for
Looking in we the perfect picture but looking out I wanna choke this bitch bro
We were just so incompatible. College creds which I though was admirable but she's is a church girl that ain't fashionable. That is what her social classes do.
Situation classical she mad I don't do what her daddy do
But I rap my job is radical I get to meet plenty bitches ass bad as you

I know it's been a while since we've last spoke
Should have start the conversation with I'm sorry so I won't
I am the type of person that will ride cause I don't think it's for the better plus this shit is getting old
To live in the lost love the food for my soul that I never really ordered at a price I can't afford it
Life is full of choices and this is one I am sure of it

[Chorus:]
Hey love it's been a while since we
But I think of all the things that we try to be
How for days I just laid in your smile
Head resting on the one thing that kept us alive
And we let it crumble and now I... I'm moving slow
Could but I won't let go ask me and I will tell you so we are so over
Hey love life it's funny that way
But if I held on child I swear I'd hate you every day
... hey love

Talk about me it may help you in case you encounter what I've been through
In high school you didn't have to be cute
Only talk to her cause she bust the move
College drop out back home from school
Moved in with her, Mamma's house got rules
Parents now father of two
Ya'll should see 'em damn they cute
Daddy left me I'm a gonna stay with them
School, sports, all the way with them
Just like that it's been 15 years
No love two more kids OK enough with this
What would we be minus the kids
Nothing in common I'm tired of this
Want someone I can go to church with
For real

Hey love it's been awhile since we
But when I think of all the things that we try to be
Hey love...

They say it's cheaper to keep her
But if you gotta beat her you don't need her
I love her but I have to leave her
Or else I probably end up on Cheaters
Caught red handed like I'm eating hot Cheetoos
Best believe I'm going oyt like a G though, widda bang!
See we had a problem everyday like a Tyler Perry play
Never really had all our bases covered
Like a brand new home with the basement flooded
And we have no coverage so we packed our luggage
And we went where the wind blew each one of us

[Chorus:]
Hey love it's been a while since we
But I think of all the things that we try to be
How for days I just laid in your smile
Head resting on the one thing that kept us alive
And we let it crumble and now I... I'm moving slow
Could but I won't let go ask me and I will tell you so we are so over
Hey love life it's funny that way
But if I held on child I swear I'd hate you every day
... hey love
