My ego’s trying to ruin everything I touch
But what’s love if the essence isn’t merciful?
[Verse 1]
Said one love love love
I was thinking maybe not debate politics in the pool
You said one love, can’t un-love, tryna run from

Nah, just because it’s your daughter’s birthday party I just.. You know

I know I hurt you though, you took it personal
I don’t know what you think you’re tryna run from
If I win an argument and lose your heart Lord

It’s not just one event but a process
That’s when we need the love thing to fill those gaps up
You said one love, can’t unlove
[Intro]
It ain’t easy when it’s real
I did it again, huh? Yeah I know
Is there any such thing as an honest mistake?
Want to thank everyone for being patient with me
Oh my God now
No, I feel you
Try to rid my truth of it’s falseness
In my heart you know I feel
If your beauty is closer than an arms length
I want it all real, nothing fake please
I’m writing you a song though

[Hook]
Let me first save the world from my foolishness
That you’re much more important than my point is
[Outro]
Like you just, you tryna unfriend me in real life?
When it seems most difficult to keep me close
All your greatness and baby we can make it
I want the real love, not the false kind

And to quote myself that’s what this is about
You said one love, you can’t unlove
Said one love love love
Just don’t leave because I still need your patience
Even the people who try, we get weak too
If I’m tryna get out here and protest
I don’t want to wonder what your handshake means
Is probably the time that I need you most

And hear me when I say this
It ain’t easy when it’s real
It ain’t easy when it’s real
Not the one that need perfectness at all times
Yo I’m a hot mess and if I’m honest
Because I needed so bad for it to be true
Just don’t leave because I still need your patience
I don’t need to say everything I think I must
Said one love love love

[Verse 3]

(You tryna save the world, right?)
You’d be hard pressed to tell me that it’s far fetched
I’d rather just forgive and forget
And hear me when I say this
And I see no need for us to live with regrets
It ain’t easy when it’s real
I let you down though, I didn’t mean to
[Hook]
And hear me when I say this
It ain’t easy when it’s real
Let me guard my heart from it’s harshness
"We live learn and figure it out"
Yeah, word up, email me about that
All your greatness and baby we can make it
I don’t know what it is you’re trying to run from
Now is my heart that way? Would I try to betray?
All your greatness and baby we can make it
Hit the bullseye on the wrong dart board
In my heart you know I feel
It ain’t easy when it’s real
[Hook]
It’s a journey that I’m on, I pray you take it with me
Oh my God now…
It goes something like this…
If what you need and what I have don’t match
In my heart you know I feel
Just don’t leave because I still need your patience
[Verse 2]
What I mean though or what my point is
And when you said we were family, I believed you
