"What Are We?"


You broke up with yo man to go to school

Jane, I don't know what I can do with you

You only thought I was "cute"

Well, what's "cute" gonna do

When you don't need yo man

__where you are going?

That's why I only wanted to be friends

But the way we flirted only stole

__my very own heart

From the one I should of been talking to


Now she's a thing of the past

The one in the distance

Thee only one I can really reach

"You know" I don't got no car

Of my own at least

And if you left yo man

Why would you come out to me?

I'm not doubting you if you left him

__for any other reason

____and just used school

______as an excuse

But I'm not falling in love with you

'Cause I still think that's not

What you want

With what I am

Unless I already am in love with you

Stars fill my head

__as if I'm alive again

Flooded with LSD like it was

1998 again

If I could get rid of my mind

The one that knows not to hit on you

Would I just be asking myself

__the same question?

That I thought I already have?

Haven't I been texting your inbox from my 'phone

__all damned day?

I'm not getting mad

I'm not getting sad

I'm just going mad

Livin' the sad life without feeling that I am


It's not for me to be laughing at myself

I'm having fun just getting to know you

I'm not playing games though

You said I am "cute"

__don't that give me a right to

____pursue you?

Or are you fooling me?

'Cause I may not have a right

"Cute" can just be word

Used to tease


So what am I supposed to think?

And what am I supposed to do?

Another long distance relationship?

Or are you not ready to be serious?

I'm asking right now

'Cause by now you must know

What you wanna do with me right now

If you just wanna be my friend

Then you've already played me

And you won

You got my heart taken from Lizzy

And for what?

Just to be homies?

From far away?

Weird, isn't it?
