lyrics

I never let the joker out my sight,
Never went broke on an all or nothing,
Never made a bet so out of line
Till I met you & I hit the ground running.

And now I must say,
I’ve never seen so much weakness in one place.
Hey, what’s a 20-inch bicep with no strength?
‘Cause you’ve been wrapping it around all the wrong things.

CHORUS:
And you were singing my praise, saying I'm magic,
And then you turned back—oh baby, what happened?
‘Cause I was all in the minute I found you,
Ready & set & willing to crown you king.

Never should a joker catch my eye,
But I looked over & I caught some feelings.
Saw a couple things that I really liked,
But you got caught up in the big daydreaming.

It’s what you don’t say;
It’s like a pretty black Cadillac with no brakes;
It’s like your girlfriend lying to you boldface;
I’m just a side chick laying down a cold case.

CHORUS

You know it ain't right,
So what you doing now, calling me at midnight?
I’ve done nothing but given you the good life—
I mean, I really would’ve been a good wife, but..


CHORUS 2:
Keep singing my praise, saying I’m magic;
I’ll be keeping my name & kicking this habit.
‘Cause I was all in the minute I found you,
Ready & set & willing to crown you king.

You were singing my praise, saying I'm magic,
And then you turned back—oh baby, what happened?
Go on, give me that lip, give me that passion,
But my baby don’t trip—you know that I’m savage, king.
