Wale - It's Complicated Lyrics

Don't ask me about my love life
(Hol' up!)

It's complicated to find a lady in my generation
That's not preoccupied with social clout
We almost fazing out from the high we get from love and conversation to go on IG galavanting for likes and shit
Oh, it's complicated
I'm tryna say I need loyalty like Clyde Barrow was tryna get when Bonnie was shot up riding shotgun with him
My problems are justified but, I gotta admit
I got someone who loves me so effortless
But, I'm so messed up from another chick I feel like such a bitch ass nigga
That my exes got the power with no effort to decline the next shawty I get
So, I'm guarded and shit
But, never mind that cause you're a goddess and shit
What I'm tryna say is I like you but it's complicated
Foundation on all my pillows, still your tender face is flawless when the sky kiss you
Should I bury you in compliments or buy gifts or
Just let you tell me bye and for that time I'll miss you
My life is fairly complicated
You show too much of your heart I promise they confiscate it
I am young, black, and accomplished baby but
I'm not the type to bring home to mama
I'm just crazy cause I'm broad crazy
Monogamy's kind of hard for me
When I start throwing them curves that's when they caught feelings
I got famous at a young age I'm spoiled
I get paid, don't go out so the club scene I'm bored of
I don't believe in unicorns nor pure love, but more so the latter, seen Porzingis from courtside
I got missed calls from porn stars and church girls
You'd be surprised who get the wildest and squirt more

Let's be honest shawty
I got bitches you got niggas don't be modest shawty
Don't care about your IG pictures I don't follow anyway
'Cause, if I really like you I don't like your pictures, dig it?

I believe that love is complicated at best
And at it's worst it's a permanent burning in your chest
I pray to earn that from somebody someday
But, somehow someway I no longer have a heart to invest, it's miles away
The smiles is fake and my job ain't real
Why would you think I'll find a woman who is?
I'm high today
Tomorrow I'm chill cause my job get real
What mature woman would put up with my shit?
I mean I'm damaged goods
I mean, I'm rather good at being just kind of good to women who deserve more from me
But, I see you as something more than a purring kitty
You hate my state of mind, somehow you think the world of me

It's complicated
It's complicated
It's complicated
It's complicated
Just be honest shawty
I got bitches you got niggas don't be modest shawty
Don't care about your IG pictures I don't follow anyway
Cause if I really like you I won't... fuck it
Block all them bitches, cause it's complicated

    The instrumental is just beautiful.... Wale has good taste and he's doing his thing here too. He gets too much unnecessary hate lol, but his sensitivity to criticism doesn't help either. I still rock with him though.
