Bailey Bryan – Roster Lyrics

Roster By Bailey Bryan

I’m just like everybody else, I don’t like being alone
So I was real happy to meet you
Other numbers in my phone
I’ve been ’bout ready to delete ’em
Seein’ our future like psychic, now I’m feelin’ psycho
You’ve been actin’ different, baby where the time go?
Think about it all day, used to make plans
Now I’m lucky if you callin’, like “Wanna smash?”, I mean yeah but
I know I deserve better (I deserve better)
We’ve been talkin’ forever (We’ve been talkin’ forever)
Ain’t no sign of commitment, actin’ all indifferent
Now the tables shifted though

I might need to fill up my roster, only to keep my mind off you
Not ’cause I want to, it’s just that this feeling’s a monster
If I cannot bother you, I’ll just go find an imposter
Start talkin’ to strangers, makin’ arrangements
For a future without you that I never wanted, you never promised, no

So don’t make me fill up my roster, don’t make me fill up my roster
Don’t make me
Act like I don’t want you
I’m not like everybody else

I got the line up, waitin’ in line for
Me and you, to fall through
What you gon’ do about it?
In the middle of the night you feel like you my soulmate
But these other guys will love me in the broad day, ayy
If you don’t step up you’re game, I’m just sayin’
Yeah

I might need to fill up my roster, only to keep my mind off you
Not ’cause I want to, it’s just that this feeling’s a monster
If I cannot bother you, I’ll just go find an imposter
Start talkin’ to strangers, makin’ arrangements
For a future without you that I never wanted, you never promised, no

So don’t make me fill up my roster, don’t make me fill up my roster
Don’t make me
Act like I don’t want you
‘Cause I really want you

I know I deserve better
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, I know I deserve better

So maybe, I might need to fill up my roster, only to keep my mind off you
Not ’cause I want to, it’s just that this feeling’s a monster
If I cannot bother you, I’ll just go find an imposter (Yeah)
Start talkin’ to strangers, makin’ arrangements (Makin’ arrangements)
For a future without you that I never wanted, you never promised, no

So don’t make me fill up my roster, don’t make me fill up my roster
Don’t make me
Act like I don’t want you
‘Cause I really want you

Don’t tell nobody, don’t tell nobody
That I really want you, yeah

“Roster” serves as the unquestionable upshot of Bryan’s recently released new song “play w/ me” that just marked a major milestone of over One Million streams worldwide and has turned heads as a “buoyant, confident kiss-off to a f–kboy who she simply does not have the time for” (Billboard).


“The idea from this song came from the exact situation that I describe in the verses! I found myself pining after somebody that was only able to give me the bare minimum, when I knew that there were plenty of other dudes out there willing to give me what I deserve and then some, because I am dope!” Bailey explained in an EXCLUSIVE interview with HL. “Writing ‘Roster’ was kind of the light bulb moment when I realized it.”
