I BEEN
Ari Lennox


I've been smokin' purple haze, ooh
All to forget about you
I've been smokin' purple haze, ooh
All to forget about you

And I try, and I try, and I try, and I try, I try
But I'm having the worst luck on Tinder
Ooh, why'd you have to be a big pretender
I try, and I try, and I try, I try, I try
To give you somethin' good, 'cause I know you would
Give it to me, too

I've been smokin' purple haze, ooh
All to forget about you
Said I've been smokin' purple haze, ooh
All to forget about you

But you lie, and you lie, and you lie, and you lie, you lie
Oh, it's the 47th time that I've changed my number
Should call you Mannie Fresh 'cause you's the number one stunna
You lie, you lie, and you lie, and you lie, you lie
I gave you something good 'cause I know you would
Give it to me, too

Don't date these niggas 'til you're forty-three
A heartbreak gonna creep on after me
I try to cover up what I feel inside
You hurt me so deep and I

You know, life is too short to be blocking your blessings like that
To be blocking potential blessings, like
Yeah, you may never get married again
You may never find the love of your life again
But, hey, that's life
And please don't be in a situation
Where that person's tearing you down mentally, emotionally, physically, y-
We've heard it a million times
I think emotional abuse is way worse than physical, sometimes
'Cause that just fucks up your whole mind
You could develop whole disorders like that
Whole disorders
You guys tell me why this old nigga from my past
Hit me up, talking about something
Is your name Courtney?
Did you go to Poplar Tree in the first, second, and third grade?
And you had like a light skin sister?
And you, um, you had a crush on me?
I was like, yeah, that sounds like me
But my thing is, like, nigga, like you feeling yourself
You're feeling yourself a little too hard
Talking about you had a crush on me
Nigga, yes, at like, fucking seven
Relax, relax.
