Full lyrics: Tryna sneak upstairs to your apartment Aren’t you a sight for red eyes I just flew in and slipped in on your left side Just a satin gown, you asleep with no makeup I’m just tryna be inside you ‘fore you wake up We have problems but thats all in the past Everybody got problems baby I got a past Remember I used to do things that would make you laugh Like ordering girl drinks in a masculine glass You like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain Or rocking flannels all summer like Kurt Cobain Or that Dolce Gabbana with a few gold chains And you ...
