August Alsina – Sleeve Lyrics

I wear my heart on my sleeve
Didn’t think you would take it and play with it
I should’ve been takin’ it easy
Instead I let my head get away from me, no
Don’t got my heart on my sleeve
I cut ’em off like a wife beater
And that’s the way it’s gon’ be
So you can take it or leave it

So you can take it or leave it
I be protectin’ the heart and you don’t need a reason
That’s why you seein’ me lovin’ and leavin’
‘Cause I know that most of you good for a season
I ain’t got time to be movin’ in
Just to be chasin’ the one that got away
‘Fore you do the same, you’re replacin’ him
I see the game that you play and you know that it’s dangerous, babe
Playin’ with a nigga heart can get a nigga shot
Ain’t plannin’ no funerals, babe
I’d rather walk out of here with no feelings caught and that is beautiful, babe
You can go your way, I can go mine
And I can’t kick it with you, I ain’t kick it with you
I ain’t tryna be your gold mine

I know, I know, that you’ve been hurt before
Girl, I’ve been hurtin’ too, so that’s why I keep it true
Baby, I fuck with you, I don’t wanna beef with you
Keep it a buck, I’m tryna roll in the sheets with you
Don’t need nothin’ new

I wear my heart on my sleeve
Didn’t think you would take it and play with it
I should’ve been takin’ it easy
Instead I let my head get away from me, no
Don’t got my heart on my sleeve
I cut ’em off like a wife beater
And that’s the way it’s gon’ be
So you can take it or leave it
I wear my heart on my sleeve
Didn’t think you would take it and play with it
I should’ve been takin’ it easy
Instead I let my head get away from me, no
Don’t got my heart on my sleeve
I cut ’em off like a wife beater
And that’s the way it’s gon’ be
So you can take it or leave it

All a nigga really got is heartache and bubblegum
And I’m fresh out of bubblegum
Come through and get you a piece but no catchin’ no feelings ’cause that’s when the trouble come
You don’t want it, I don’t want it either
If you think that you do, then believe me
I ain’t sayin’ that I don’t have a good time with you
That don’t be makin’ it easy but
I ain’t tryna go there, tryna go there
I don’t got no love to spare
I know I’m fly and I’m debonair
But for now girl, I’m done with your playin’
‘Cause I wear my heart on my sleeve but let her manipulate it
Come and take it from me
Now she done fucked it all up for you, girl
I ain’t lovin’ nobody but me

I know, I know, that you’ve been hurt before
Girl, I’ve been hurtin’ too, so that’s why I keep it true
Baby, I fuck with you, I don’t wanna beef with you
Keep it a buck, I’m tryna roll in the sheets with you
Don’t need nothin’ new

I wear my heart on my sleeve
Didn’t think you would take it and play with it
I should’ve been takin’ it easy
Instead I let my head get away from me, no
Don’t got my heart on my sleeve
I cut ’em off like a wife beater
And that’s the way it’s gon’ be
So you can take it or leave it
I wear my heart on my sleeve
Didn’t think you would take it and play with it
I should’ve been takin’ it easy
Instead I let my head get away from me, no
Don’t got my heart on my sleeve
I cut ’em off like a wife beater
And that’s the way it’s gon’ be
So you can take it or leave it
