Take It Down a Notch

Back up off me. ima do me.
So you think you can steal

Can take my crown?

Greatness only lasts until

Your pedestal is knocked down.

Fall down off your throne

And land on your knees

As I look into your eyes

I want you to beg, plead.

You hurt me bad

You cut me deep

But it's been awhile

Since I've lost any sleep.

I know I keep saying

You do you, ima do me

But that's because

That's what's making me happy.

I no longer need to rely

On hearing your voice

And finally, now

I have a choice

I've got a new love now

I'm making myself happy

And you have no say

Because that's how I want it to be.
