02. Drug Dealer Girl

(Intro)
Now you may never be on a Maybelline commercial
But, you always let me know when you got some purple
See, I can’t let you walk away
I can’t let you walk away
You need to light one with me

(Hook)
So you could be my
Drug dealer girl
So you could be my
Drug dealer girl
So you could be, be, be my
Drug dealer girl
So you could be my
Drug dealer girl

(Verse 1)
You might never sell enough of this stuff to move off your street
But, every time I call you let me light one up for free
I’m sure that you’re never ever gonna be a runway model
But, you can make a bomb ass piece out of a water bottle

(Bridge)
And when you count my money
You look so sexy to me
And it might sound funny
But, I would by a O-Z just to get you in my bedroom

(Hook)
So you could be my
Drug dealer girl
So you could be my
Drug dealer girl
So you could be, be, be my
Drug dealer girl
So you could be my
Drug dealer girl

(Verse 2)
Something ’bout the way that you weigh and bag my eighters
You even gave me my own number to put in your pager
I still never seen you cough when you hit the bong
See, gimme that shit that helps me write my songs

(Bridge)
And when you count my money
You look so sexy to me
And it might sound funny
But, I would by a O-Z just to get you in my bedroom

(Hook)
So you could be my
Drug dealer girl
So you could be my
Drug dealer girl
So you could be, be, be my
Drug dealer girl
So you could be my
Drug dealer girl

Girlfriend
You should be my girlfriend
Girlfriend
My drug dealer and my
Girlfriend
You should be my girl

Girlfriend
Puff it pass it push it pedal it
Puff it pass it push it pedal it
Puff it pass it push it pedal it

Drug dealer girl
Puff it pass it push it pedal it
Drug dealer girl
Puff it pass it push it pedal it
Drug dealer girl
Puff it pass it push it pedal it
Drug dealer girl
Puff it pass it push it pedal it

(Outro)
You may never be on a Maybelline commercial
But you always let me know when you got some purple
See, I can’t let you walk away
I can’t let you walk away
You need to light one with me

03. Cooler Than Me (ft. Big Sean)
(Hook)
If I could write you a song
To make you fall in love
I would already have you up under my arm
I used up all of my tricks
I hope that you like this
But, you probably won’t
You think you’re cooler than me

You got designer shades
Just to hide your face
And you wear them around like
You’re cooler than me
And you never say “hey”
Or remember my name
It’s probably ’cause, you think you’re cooler than me

(Verse 1: Mike Posner)
You got your high browed
Shoes on your feet
And you wear them around
Like they ain’t shit
But you don’t know
The way that you look
When your steps
Make
That
Much
Noise
Shh

(Bridge)
See, I got you
All figured out
You need everyone’s eyes just to feel seen
Girl, you’re so vain
You probably think that this song is about you
Don’t you?
Don’t you?

(Hook)
If I could write you a song
To make you fall in love
I would already have you up under my arm
I used up all of my tricks
I hope that you like this
But, you probably won’t
You think you’re cooler than me

You got designer shades
Just to hide your face and
You wear them around like
You’re cooler than me (cooler than me)
And you never say “hey”
Or remember my name
It’s probably ’cause, you think you’re cooler than me

(Verse 2: Mike Posner)
You got your high browed
Switching your walk
And you don’t even look
When you pass by
But, you don’t know
The way that you look
When your steps
Make
That
Much
Noise
Shh

(Bridge)
See, I got you
All figured out
You need everyone’s eyes just to feel seen
Girl, you’re so vain
You probably think that this song is about you
Don’t you?
Don’t you?

(Hook)
If I could write you a song
And make you fall in love
I would already have you up under my arm
I used up all of my tricks,
I hope that you like this
But, you probably won’t,
You think you’re cooler than me

You got designer shades
Just to hide your face and
You wear them around like
You’re cooler than me (cooler than me)
And you never say “hey”
Or remember my name
It’s probably ’cause, you think you’re cooler than me

(Verse 3: Big Sean)
And don’t you dare act like you don’t know
Know what’s up
‘Cause your nose is up
I’m approaching up (Yup)
Like I can’t give you winter in the summer
Or summer in the winter
Miami in December
Trying to look bored in them Diors (Diors)
She probably is
Was acting shallow until
She find out how deep that my pockets is
Mrs. Prima Donna
This is your reminder
That I think you’re fine
But I’m finer
Sean, yup

‘Cause it sure seems (‘Cause it sure seems)
You got no doubt (That you got no doubts)
But, we all see (We all see)
You got your head in the clouds

(Hook)
If I could write you a song
To make you fall in love
I would already have you up under my arm (under my arm)
I used up all of my tricks
I hope that you like this
But, you probably won’t
You think you’re cooler than me

You got designer shades
Just to hide your face and
You wear them around like
You’re cooler than me (cooler than me)
And you never say hey
Or remember my name
It’s probably ’cause, you think you’re cooler than me

04. Hey Cupid
Ooooooooohhhhhhhhhhh
Yeah
Alright

(Hook)
Hey Cupid (Hey Cupid)
Do I look stupid? (Do I look stupid?)
I’m not going to fall for none of your tricks no more
Your arrow won’t pierce my skin no more

Hey Cupid (Hey Cupid)
Do I look stupid? (Do I look stupid?)
I’m not going to fall for none of your tricks no more
Your arrow won’t pierce my skin no more

(Verse 1)
Do you remember Mary?
The one you made me wanna marry
I tried to get into her sex life
But she said I was the friend type
Do you remember Katie?
‘Cause you made her drive me crazy
I gave her all of my affection
Then, she left me for my best friend

Now, you keep shooting your arrow
You keep givin’ my love away
But I don’t see why you don’t let me be
I don’t want to play your game

(Hook)
Hey Cupid (Hey Cupid)
Do I look stupid? (Do I look stupid?)

I’m not going to fall for none of your tricks no more
Your arrow won’t pierce my skin no more

(Verse 2)
Do you remember Rachel?
You made her look like such an angel
She told me I would be her first ride
That was just her first lie
Do you remember Ashley?
The one that only dated athletes
I tried to kiss her in my back seat
She turned away and slapped me

Now, you keep shooting your arrow
You keep givin’ my love away
But I don’t see why you don’t let me be
I don’t want to play yo game

I wonder if you even remember how you gave away my love
Superglued my heart back together now, put it back where it was
I wonder if you even remember how you gave away my love
Superglued my heart back together now

(Hook)
Hey Cupid (Hey Cupid)
Do I look stupid? (Do I look stupid?)
I’m not going to fall for none of your tricks no more
Your arrow won’t pierce my skin no more

Hey Cupid (Hey Cupid)
Do I look stupid? (Do I look stupid?)
I’m not going to fall for none of your tricks no more
Your arrow won’t pierce my skin no more

05. Still Not Over You (ft. Eric Holljes)
(Hook: Eric Holljes)
I never knew
I never knew that everything was falling through
That after all these years I’d still be calling you
To try to sell you on the thought of coming back to me

(Verse 1: Mike Posner)
Baby girl
Yeah, you were my first
But, you’ve always been my favorite girl
And I just so happened to break up with my latest girl
So I think you should come over and be my latest girl
Latest girl
All I know is
I still feel the same way that I felt
So long ago
And even though I fuck other girls now
I don’t want them, so
We can pretend that were right back in 2000 yo, 2000 yo

(Hook: Eric Holljes)
Everybody knows I’m still not over you
Not over you
And every time I lose a girlfriend
I call you
Yeah, I call you

(Verse 2: Mike Posner)
Walk with me
I made a few more beats since the last time you done talk to me
I got a few more connects in the game
But, that’s not all I need
Remember back in the day
You had a massive phone bill
From calling me
Why you stop calling me?

Remember babe
I wrote you all those love notes in 7th grade
I hope you threw those out when we went out separate ways
‘Cause I don’t want to see them up for sale on eBay
Don’t put them on eBay

(Hook: Eric Holljes)
Everybody knows I’m still not over you
Not over you
And every time I lose a girlfriend
I call you
Yeah, I call you

(Bridge: Mike Posner)
You were my first girl
So won’t you be my last girl
Hey first girl
Won’t you be my last girl
You were my first girl
So won’t you be my last girl
Hey first girl
Won’t you be my last girl

(Hook: Eric Holljes)
Everybody knows I’m still not over you
Not over you
And every time I lose a girlfriend
I call you
Yeah, I call you

06. Evil Woman
(Pre-Intro: Electric Light Orchestra)
Hey!

(Intro)
Yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah, yeah yeah

(Verse 1)
I know what you’re tryna do
You got every guy here thinking you like them too
So you can switch your hips and bat your eyes
You better go try this shit on another guy

‘Cause I can see through what you telling me
You want me to fall in love to help your self-esteem
And baby how high do I look to you
You better leave me be and go find another fool
You, You

(Hook: Electric Light Orchestra)
Evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman

(Verse 2)
And I know that you’re out my league
But you lead me on and tell me that you’re into me
‘Cause, ’cause, ’cause you know you got me on a string
And if you pull it right I’ll probably buy you Seven jeans

‘Cause you’re so fly, you know it too
And you sure do your best to make us notice you
But, baby, how high must you be
If you think I’m gon’ let you go and pull that shit on me
You’re just an

07. Who Knows (ft. Big Sean)
(Hook: Mike Posner)
Sometimes my mind wanders away from me
I know
I light my dutchie up, puff
Maybe one day I’ll fly
Who knows, who knows, who knows
(I know)
who knows
(I know)

(Verse 1: Big Sean)
I wish that I could be what I want to
I wish that I would do what I don’t do
I need a miracle, I hope I come through
I’m tryna work it out, I need a jump soon
‘Cause I’ve about had me enough of not havin’ enough
Slacking and stuff
Momma on the phone not bragging and nothin’
‘Cause her son ain’t really got shit happenin’ much
Saw my bank account like “where was all the O’s at?”
Hit the club like “where was all the hoes at?”
In a lil change you gon’ see how shit change you gon’
Be up in the crib like “where was all her clothes at?”
And ask yo girl she know it’s easy to say no to a nigga that’s broke
But somebody with dough, that got a lil mo’?
Shit I dunno

(Hook: Mike Posner)
Sometimes my mind wanders away from me, I know
I light my dutchie up, puff
Maybe one day I’ll fly
Who knows, who knows, who knows
(I know)
Who knows
(I know)

(Verse 2: Big Sean)
And I always had drive
Gets (me) where I’m goin’ if I ain’t got a ride
And when they ask, “do you do what you love?”
I’ma say “I do if I ain’t got a bride”
And I always carry faith like Big
Tryna do it big so my crib on Cribs
And my girl ain’t gotta worry ’bout shit
‘Cause our world is gon’ be the shit
So, she can tell her momma I’ma keeper
I am a dreamer, I coulda been a king, huh
I’ma put my hands together like in applaud
Look upward, like whaddup, Lord
Huh, I know if you try to you could turn these gray skies back to sky blue
It was made for the gift of gold like a drive-thru
Give us opportunity and see what we do with it

(Hook: Mike Posner)
Sometimes my mind wanders away from me, I know
I light my dutchie up, puff
Maybe one day I’ll fly
Who knows, who knows, who knows
(I know)
Who knows
(I know)

08. Halo
(Verse 1)
Remember those things I said?
Well, I don’t mean none of em now
You’re acting like a different person
I couldn’t pick you out of a crowd
I know about all the things you did
There’s nothing left to talk about
Baby, take off your halo (ooh ooh)
You ain’t nobody’s angel now

So, you can keep playin’
I can’t hear nothing that ya sayin’
And sorry won’t change it
Girl, I’m about to put you out

Don’t try to apologize
Or try to call my phone no more
Baby, take off your halo
It doesn’t even glow no more

There’s not gon’ be no second chance
Don’t try to show up back at my door
Baby, take off your Halo
What kind of fool do you take me for?

(Hook)
Take, take off your halo (halo)
Take, take off your halo (halo)
Take, take off your halo (halo)
Take, take off your halo (halo)
Take, take off your halo (halo)
Take, take off your halo (halo)
Take, take off your halo (halo)

(Verse 2)
I don’t wanna hear your explanations
Your not gon’ talk your way out of this
I know exactly what your gonna try to say
And I’m not gon’ fall for none of your tricks
Go ahead and cry if you want to
Go and tell it to the dude that you were with
The second that I walk away
Baby girl, you don’t even exist

So you can keep playin’
I can’t hear nothing that you sayin’
And sorry won’t change it
Don’t try to come at me with none of your shit

Don’t try to apologize
Don’t try to call my phone no more
Baby, take off your halo
It doesn’t even glow no more

There’s no gon’ be no second chance
Don’t try to show up back at my door
Baby, take off your halo
What kind of fool do you take me for?

Take, take off your halo (halo)
Take, take off your halo (halo)

09. Smoke & Drive (ft. Big Sean, Donnis, and Jackie Chain)
(Chorus: Mike Posner)
Roll the windows up when you get in the car, and I’ma light one up
Hit the gas station go and buy a cigar and a philly blunt
Every time I breathe it’s like I’m taking a puff, turn my music high
Roll the windows up, when I smoke and drive

(Verse 1: Big Sean)
All black car (car)
Three percent tint
I can clearly see out
But you can barely see in
The end and only end
We blowing Indonesia
And I’ma let it hit til I get amnesia
I’m crazy the haze got me hazy I’m lazy
Tell Ben that it something about Mary and clearly (what)
I’m so outta here you can say a nigga spacey (damn)
Pocket full of papers so I’m finnin to get some papers (yeah)
Bout to inhale like I’m finnin to see Satan (what)
Bout to exhale like I’m finnin to see my savior
So get the leaves and trees like it’s autumn
Have them windows all rolled up rolled em and told em man

(Chorus: Mike Posner)
Roll the windows up when you get in the car, and I’ma light one up
Hit the gas station go and buy a cigar and a philly blunt
Every time I breathe it’s like I’m taking a puff, turn the music high
Roll the windows up, when I smoke and drive

(Verse 2: Donnis)
First of all, ’til you ball like this
You don’t put this type of pimp in your swish, get it
We smoking on that poison, call it Michael Bivins
So if you selling to me then you gotta lucrative business
A friend is what you blow while I’m smoking on that CEO
Top notch, I got foot by the foot in my fruit roll up
No cuts, no stems, no seeds, straight THC indeed
I’m tryna get stoned like I’m staring into Medusa eyes
You ain’t got green what somebody tell me, who supply
So I can buy wholesale for the low like Costco or Sam’s
You got some, well damn

(Chorus: Mike Posner)
Roll the windows up when you get in the car, and I’ma light one up
Hit the gas station go and buy a cigar and a philly blunt
Every time I breathe it’s like I’m taking a puff, turn the music high
Roll the windows up, when I smoke and drive

(Verse 3: Jackie Chain)
I don’t smoke phillies pass me a swisher
Bumping PMC pouring out a little liquor
Trunk full of kicker blunt full of OG
Right behind tint ’cause these jack boys know me
Smokin’ sour diesel out of NYC
Keisha calling ATL, oh well, I’m kushin DC
Which ones better roll up I need a time
Take a ride downtown, man. I’m higher than these skyscrapers
Roll the windows up tryna get my smoke on
2 in the morning still riding with my Locs on
Fuck the police, what these pigs gon’ tell me
Smoking bud at nights like X off a Bentley

(Chorus: Mike Posner)
Roll the windows up when you get in the car, and I’ma light one up
Hit the gas station go and buy a cigar and a philly blunt
Every time I breathe it’s like I’m taking a puff, turn the music high
Roll the windows up, when I smoke and drive

10. Losing My Mind
(Verse 1)
It’s 3:45 tell me I’m Okay thoughts flying in and out my head
It’s 4:45 I’m still awake staring at this ceiling in my bed
Hand on my solo
That’s almost empty
Everybody loves me
Hook me with Benzi
But who I tryin’ to kid now
Need to put this shit down
People I don’t even know tell me how to live now

(Chorus)
I’m Lost On A Road
But no one even cares
No one left to call
No one even there
Nobody at all

So I’m…
Losing Up My Mind
Losing Up My Mind
Losing Up My Mind
Losing It
Losing It
Losing Up My Mind
Losing Up My Mind
Losing Up My Mind
Losing It
Losing It
Losing Up My Mind
Losing Up My Mind

Losing Up My Mind
Losing Up My Mind
Losing Up My Mind
Losing It
Losing It

(Verse 2)
Walking around
Looking for a way
But no one tells me which way to go
There’s people around
People say my name
But somehow I’m still all alone
Hand me a cigarette
Don’t care bout no cancer
Call up my girlfriend
She doesn’t answer
So I’m own my own now
Green in this bowl now
Pedal to floor now
I need to slow down

(Chorus)
I’m Lost On A Road
But no one even cares
No one left to call
No one even there
Nobody at all

So I’m…
Losing Up My Mind
Losing Up My Mind
Losing Up My Mind
Losing It
Losing It
Losing Up My Mind
Losing Up My Mind
Losing Up My Mind
Losing It
Losing It

Losing It
Losing It

11. A Matter Of Time
(Verse 1)
You’ve got your head in the clouds
The stars in your eyes
Everyone can see it but you
And I don’t know how you believe your own lies
No one wants to tell you the truth

(Hook)
It’s just a matter of time
Before this all comes crashing down
The harder you try
The more we can see the real you
The real, real you

(Verse 2)
So you’re gonna be a big star
They told you-you’re the next big thing
Everybody’s gonna love you
Everybody’s gonna know your name

So push your problems in your impending fame
And push ’em away, push ’em away
Keep your head up, baby, wait for the day
They’ll see that you’re larger than life

(Hook)
It’s just a matter of time
Before this all comes crashing down
The harder you try
The more we can see the real you
The real, real you

(Verse 3)
You know that you’re special
You probably hear it every day
You know you don’t belong here
With normal people doing normal things

So push your problems in your impending fame
Push ’em away, yeah, push ’em away
Keep your head up, baby, wait for the day
They’ll see that you’re larger than life

(Hook)
It’s just a matter of time
Before this all comes crashing down
The harder you try
The more we can see the real you
The real, real you

It’s just a matter of time
Before this all comes crashing down
The harder you try
The more we can see the real you
The real, real you
