Track Name: I Need A Girl feat. Fendercase & Selassie | Dirty Version
CHORUS
I need a girl
That don’t crave attention
She don’t do it for likes
She don’t do it for mentions
She don’t live on the gram
She live in the moment
Let me see whatcha like
When you give me the present

VERSE 1
These lifeless devices
That serve as vices
We solicit likes with
And there's lies the crisis
I think it’d be nice if
We took our time miss
See paradise in
Simple exercises
Like real socializing
Maybe catch a vibe when
Life improvises
Enjoy the surprises
We don’t gotta post this
They don’t need to know shit
We don’t need a picture
To know what unfolded
But I know you want to go grab your phone
Snap chat these moments, for shares on a post
Can we have some moments when we’re just alone
When strangers can’t view us oh no, no, no

CHORUS
I need a girl
That don’t crave attention
She don’t do it for likes
She don’t do it for mentions
She don’t live on the gram
She live in the moment
Let me see whatcha like
When you give me the present

VERSE 2
Heaven help me
Not another selfie
This ain’t healthy
Hoping that they envy
We ain’t wealthy
But you pretend we
Don’t argue steady
Counting our pennies
Oh how you’ve changed
All you do is compare
Don’t wanna go out
Because you can’t wear
The same outfit twice
God forbid that you’re tagged
They’ll say that you’re basic
(Who cares if they laugh)
We used to have long chats
Eyes made contact
I suggest that we unplug
But you don’t want that
I don’t care bout your timeline I don’t wanna scroll,
Keep killin’ my vibe I’m a put you on hold,
Liked me a pic of a girl you don’t know
That night as I slept you went all through my phone
Jealous of them and the world that they show
They argue like us but they won’t let you know

CHORUS
I need a girl
That don’t crave attention
She don’t do it for likes
She don’t do it for mentions
She don’t live on the gram
She live in the moment
Let me see whatcha like
When you give me the present

VERSE 3
The whole world tried to exit us
Ever since we took on this exodus
You and I know this kind’a stress is rough
So shut’em down when they tell you don’t flex enough
I know ya boy Arlo looking really legendary
I know these hoes checking for your man is very scary
But I’m a keep it trill while on this journey though
And where we take it is something that they should never know
Oh! Now it’s back to black, these hoes wanna see us go back to that
The world would rejoice if you and I collapsed
I look to past and hope to bring it back
Cause these are the times we need to bridge the gaps
But I know you want to go grab your phone
These days this place doesn’t feel like home...

CHORUS
I need a girl
That don’t crave attention
She don’t do it for likes
She don’t do it for mentions
She don’t live on the gram
She live in the moment
Let me see whatcha like
