The Streets – I Wish You Loved You As Much As You Love Him Lyrics

I Wish You Loved You As Much As You Love Him By The Streets

I wish you loved you as much as you love him
I wish you loved you as much as you love him

I wish you loved you as much as you love him
So kiss his picture and chuck it in the bin
You been on the road of excess for what seems like forever
The palace of wisdom, are we nearly there yet?
Are you with the flame that you had hoped?
Or are you just afraid to be alone?
I know he says you’ll change, but maybe you should know
That people never change, they’re just exposed

I wish you loved you as much as you love him
I wish you loved you as much as you love-

Searching for ourselves in one another
You all got all the power you need
Don’t play them in no lover
I feel your search for balance
And there’s comfort in your comma challenge
Can’t be alone, on cellphone
The lonely life is savage
But please put down that baggage

I wish you loved you as much as you love him
I wish you loved you as much as you love him

I wish you loved you and gave you self-loving
Loving yourself is true wealth, honey
I wish you loved you as much as you love him
You love this guy like there’s two of him
To live like that is no life
If you walked away from him, then you would win
And that’s no cappin’
But, baby, you like to be disrespected often
Bitch, you have different options
Bitches like you like living large
Aw, behave
Said you like games, babe
Drama is your safe place
I’m just saying

I wish you loved you as much as you love him
I wish you loved you as much as you love him

All the same at the end of the day
It ain’t a fair exchange
He always says he’ll change
Can’t you see it’s no use?
You gotta cut off all these things that are not serving you

I wish you loved you as much as you love him
I wish you loved you as much as you love him

You wish you could ignore the way it feels
Something in your head says he ain’t real
But you shot me down
You say it ain’t a big deal ’cause he’s gonna change
But see, it’s all the same at the end of the day
It ain’t a fair exchange
He always says he’ll change
Can’t you see it’s no use?
You gotta cut off all these things that are not serving you
