"Before We Say Goodbye"
You know, I used to ask people...
How can you be with someone when you know you're gonna break up eventually?
You would think I could take my own advice right?
See we've realized our separation is inevitable
But I just can't seem to keep my distance, and it's killin' me to talk about it so...
[Verse 1: Gabi]
This conversation, I been puttin' it off but you keep bringin' it up
You fear what most girls wish for - that I ain't clingy enough
So let's address it now cause I can't have you walkin' out the door implyin' "that'll be all, " like I'm ringin' you up
Real talk, it's unfortunate I met you now
Cause you embody an ideal of a woman I'd spend my life with once I felt
Ready to settle down
10 years into the future I would've put a ring on it without a doubt
But, right now I'm most fittest to survive
Upon the most critical, influential times of our lives
Too inspired and motivated, uncalculated
Trippin' off success with no assurance that I get to glide
It's truly cause I'm scared of what I'm meant to be, considerin' what I must give up when I get the chance to be that
I know destiny's comin' soon, better believe that
Before we say goodbye let's act like an oracle didn't foresee that
Hold my hand, love is when time is frozen
Understand if I leave, my heart won't open
Know you got just what I need
But baby you say you gotta go
We should make the most of us before we say goodbye
[Verse 2: T]
Light the sky up every time that we make love
Sunset view is your face with no make up
Even though you're movin' on and college seems right can you please help me pretend like forever is tonight?
Yeah, you know the campus ain't my scene
I just really hope you're careful and I show up in your dreams
Every now and then, but now would be preferred
If we share the same heart beat I promise you'll be heard
But the question "what if? " is holdin' us accountable
Cause we've been searchin' for that spark and this one's flammable
Cautioned you about the day I'll have to leave, but since you also gotta do ya thing I'm scared to see you leave first
Dwellin' bout our limited time is just a waste of it
And since our lives have no relation, we'll rename the ship
But plan to be on our adjacent shit
'Til we're physically erased from this, please don't stop luvin me a bit
[Hook w/ ad-libs]
Not tryna break down but it's hard to smile
Knowin' I can only hug you for a while
Baby how I wish that we could stay together ooh
Life is movin' fast, so let's take it slow
Promise now that I won't let go, I won't let go
Before I say goodbye you know I'm goin' out with style
(Goin' out with style)
I'm a treat everyday like a photo shoot so you could smile
(So you could smile baby)
And countin' down the minutes makes the time pass slower
So I'm a cherish every slow motion 'til it's over
By now I'm in too deep, but if I travelled to the past, I'd erase my dreams so in the present we could last
But for now...
[Hook: w/ ad-libs]
