Token – Not Love Lyrics

Why you gotta hurt me? Why you gotta play with me?
Why you gotta come back to me like you ain’t just leave?
Why you gotta go so far just to wanna be close?
Why I gotta always say yes when it should be no?
That’s not love

Why you gotta hurt me? Why you gotta play with me?
Why you gotta come back to me like you ain’t just leave?
Why you gotta go so far just to wanna be close?
Why I gotta always say yes when it should be no?
That’s not love

You never thought that I would feel regret more than you did
Then guess I know what I got the second I lose it
Always want what I don’t have and that’s the recipe too
Get feeling like I’m all alone so I’m left in this room
With all the energy so juvenile, jealousy is my usual
Penalty on my stubbornness, wonder if it is mutual
Reminiscin’ my funeral, I get left in the deep end
I write a text and delete it, my pride is next to defeat it
Tellin’ myself “You’ll never meet another like me
Never seen another like me
Never seen entitled, spiteful, friend in a rival
Wrapped up in one like me”
Baby I’m so indecisive I don’t even know the game I’m tryna to play
I open the door up for you and tell you “You better stay”
I let you be all alone ’til I feel I made a mistake
Then come and find you again, ’til you left with nothing to say
But

Why you gotta hurt me? Why you gotta play with me?
Why you gotta come back to me like you ain’t just leave?
Why you gotta go so far just to wanna be close?
Why I gotta always say yes when it should be no?
That’s not love

I remember when you were embarrassed to take me into the crib
Asked you why you trippin’, you said “‘Cause it ain’t so big”
That shit really hurt me, it had me thinkin’ in depth
“Am I now the person that’s way too hard to impress?”
Baby, last thing I wanted to do is make you feel you ain’t enough, too far from the truth
I used to tell you you’re a prize, but the reality is you don’t deserve someone who tells you you deserve someone who makes you believe in it
Now I believe that
You’ll never meet another like me
Never seen another like me
Never seen regretful, stressful, failure successful
Wrapped up in one like me
And I know you needed get your space, get your reach, get your mind off of me
Get your independent [?], ended on a civil peace
And even though it’s harder than ever for me to let you leave
Think it’s been enough times that you had to say to me

Why you gotta hurt me? Why you gotta play with me?
Why you gotta come back to me like you ain’t just leave?
Why you gotta go so far just to wanna be close?
Why I gotta always say yes when it should be no?
That’s not love
