Russ – Basement Lyrics

Basement by Russ
Feat. Jessie Reyez
Released : 2018

[Russ:]
Yeah
Mm, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah

Love me like I’m still in the basement (yeah)
Love me like I still haven’t made it (yeah yeah)
Who are you if you ever give up? (yeah yeah)
What’s real love without slip ups? (hey)

I been drinkin’ ’til I can’t see any red flags
(I ignored your faults)
‘Nother couple shots I’m probably gonna text back
(I ignored your faults)
These other women, something’s missin’
When I fuck ’em, barely touch ’em
When I fuck you, we be kissin’
Oh, oh, oh, oh, I
(I ignored your faults)

Love me like I’m still in the basement (yeah)
Love me like I still haven’t made it (yeah yeah)
Who are you if you ever give up? (yeah yeah)
What’s real love without slip ups? (hey)

[Jesse Reyez:]
Love me like your momma doesn’t hate me
I ignored your faults
Ain’t you say all your friends say that they rate me?
But I ignored your faults
And now these new ones I ain’t used to
They be tryna do what you do but they missin’
‘Cause they shit ain’t LOE
I heard your momma talkin’ like she blames me
But you know this is your fault

[Russ & Jesse Reyez:]
Just tryna get you closer
Yeah fuck you and your closure
So I ignored your faults
I tell you to come over
Don’t care that I’m not sober
Just ignore my faults

[Russ:]
Love me like I’m still in the basement (yeah)
Love me like I still haven’t made it (yeah yeah)
Who are you if you ever give up? (yeah yeah)
What’s real love without slip ups? (hey)

[Russ & Jesse Reyez:]
Just tryna get you closer
Yeah fuck you and your closure
So I ignored your faults
I tell you to come over
Don’t care that I’m not sober
Just ignore my faults
