Shallow - Andy Mineo feat Swoope

[Intro:]
There are so many things that I don't understand
Like why am I so lost if I have a captain?
I'm tossed back and forth by deceitful winds,
And if it all falls, look within.
I've been breaking hearts way too long
I did this from the start, now I'm all alone.
So focus on the heart if you want a home
I can't settle for that cardboard box no more.

[Verse 1:]
Early Christmas morning at the table with my momma
Steam's coming off the coffee, we talking about the father
These are the conversations I cherish and I hold on to
She asked me, "Is there a girl in your life that you're fond of?"
Well, not yet, feels like I'm looking for the Lochness.
I ain't even really got a prospect
I don't think I found what I want yet.
But let me be blunt, no pothead,
I'm going through a process to stop seeing women as objects
'Cause the meaning of marriage is not sex.
It's so much more, this ain't no beauty contest
When you play that game then somebody's always got next.
If charm is deceiving and beauty's vain, then I bet
The standards that we judge most people with are nonsense.
I put too much emphasis on my preferences,
Dang, I'm feeling shallow just addressing this
'Cause God loves me despite of how much a mess I am
And I'm writing off shawties whose bodies is less impressive like, dang.

[Hook:]
I'm caught up in this game again
She's asking if we're more than friends
Why is this happening?
I don't know if she the one,
But I don't wanna lose her love.
I'm caught up in this game again,
She's asking if we're more than friends
Why is this happening?
I don't know if she the one,
But I don't wanna lose her love.

[Verse 2:]
Cooling back in '01, high school mac was so fun,
Making chicks my baby, then on to the next one, Jay-Z.
'01 turned to '04, late night games at your dorm,
Let's take a walk, your girls hating,
We're just flirting, we ain't dating.
'04 turned to '06, and you're so sick,
Asking me, "Is that your chick?"
And I'm like, "Yes, finna put her in a white dress".
And you cry, I loved you, I ain't mean it, but I said it,
Now I'm married with a trail of broken hearts and I regret it, dang.
Should've treated you like you was God's daughter,
'Cause you was, but I got caught up, now I got Karma.
Coma, 2012 and now I got daughters,
And I'd kill the dude that ever do them like I did you.
Long list of names, that's too long to mention,
But I'm the one He cleansed in, I did my dirt
And then some pain was never intention,
I pray for your forgiveness,
Thank God He saved me from my sin but not the consequences, dang.

[Hook:]
I'm caught up in this game again
She's asking if we're more than friends
Why is this happening?
I don't know if she the one,
But I don't wanna lose her love.
I'm caught up in this game again,
She's asking if we're more than friends
Why is this happening?
I don't know if she the one,
But I don't wanna lose her love.

[Outro:]
There are so many things that I don't understand
Like why am I so lost if I have a captain.
I'm tossed back and forth by deceitful winds,
And if it all falls, look within.
I've been breaking hearts way too long
I did this from the start, now I'm all alone.
So focus on the heart if you want a home
I can't settle for that cardboard box no more.

I'm caught up in this game again
She's asking if we're more than friends
Why is this happening?
I don't know if she the one,
But I don't wanna lose her love.
I'm caught up in this game again,
She's asking if we're more than friends
Why is this happening?
I don't know if she the one,
But I don't wanna lose her love.

And all the boys said [x3]
All I really know is I don't know what I want
Caught up in this game again
And all the boys said [x2]
All I really know is I don't know what I want
