Lyrics

Why
Yeah baby why
Baby why
Yeah baby why

They only tell you what you want to hear
They never tell you how they really feel

Baby tell me what's the fucking deal
Why, why can't you keep it real
Why, why can't you keep it real (Tell me tell me)
Why, why can't you keep it real (Baby tell me tell me)
Lies all the time, can't keep it real
Lies all the time, how do you feel?

I'm feeling feeling hella faded
I'm feeling feeling like I made it
These people been hating
But I'm just waiting meditated
But I love to work, yeah I love to grind
Thinking about me, thinking about you, how we gonna shine
I been thinking, you been trippin', baby you gonna act blind
I've been thinking, when I'm winning, you ain't never seen me shine
You never like to work, I was working every night
You was getting hella mad, cause you knew that I was right
I was thinking about the plan, I was trying to be the guy
You was trying to slow me down, I never knew why

They only tell you what you want to hear
They never tell you how they really feel

Baby tell me what's the fucking deal
Why, why can't you keep it real
Why, why can't you keep it real
Why, why can't you keep it real
Lies all the time, can't keep it real
Lies all the time, how do you feel?

Tell me why I gotta change everything
That I'm doing for the same girl, you know you been hating
I think that you just complain
Girl I don't think you use your mind and you don't use your brain
I'm just really trying to think about it, think about the...
You know that I've been trying to get it
I've been in it for the..., you know that ever since I started, and I've been going in

And baby you've been cold hearted
Loving you the same, girl I just don't get it

They only tell you what you want to hear
They never tell you how they really feel

Baby tell me what's the fucking deal
Why, why can't you keep it real
Why, why can't you keep it real
Why, why can't you keep it real
Lies all the time, can't keep it real
Lies all the time, how do you feel?
