Courtney Bennett: Motives Lyrics:
I don’t wanna come off
Sounding like a broken record
But since we’ve been involved
Things ain’t really been no better
How could you think that you could just play me
And I not know, swear you must be crazy
Remember the days when
Our love was amazing

Can’t believe I let you come and get the best of me
Held you down when you were out, so faithfully
Tell me, what was it for?
Go ‘head and walk out the door
Love don’t live here no more
I don’t want you

If love was the motive
Why are we over?
Trying to forget our past
I don’t really know why you did it
Boy just admit it
You don’t really care about us

I’m looking at your picture, picture
Trying to forget about us
I’m looking at your picture, picture
We no longer have no trust
Forget about us

Tell me why you call my phone
Saying you were in the wrong
Don’t know what’s up with your mind
Is it not getting through
Are you kidding me?
Speaking with all honesty
Don’t wanna care anymore
I’ve closed that final door

Can’t believe I let you come and get the best of me
Held you down when you were out, so faithfully
Tell me, what was it for?
Go ‘head and walk out the door
Love don’t live here no more
I don’t want you

If love was the motive
Why are we over?
Trying to forget our past
I don’t really know why you did it
Boy just admit it
You don’t really care about us

I’m looking at your picture, picture
Trying to forget about us
I’m looking at your picture, picture
We no longer have no trust

Sick of old relationships that never last coz
I was too impatient and you wouldn’t take that mask off
Staring at your photos and reliving the past does
Nothing but keep memories bottles like hour glasses
This isn’t what I asked for, dwelling on the past bores
I’m just tryna turn another page like it’s a passport
You are just a past thought, I’m just tryna fast forward
So I have to kick before you play me like a grass sport
Yeah I caught you slipping I just keep on looking at your picture
Thinking what we could’ve been but theres an image of you with her
Excuse me if i’m bitter your the one I cant get rid of
Trapped in this eternity like standing inbetween two mirrors
Im sick of the past I’m ripping in half your image in negative photos
Im cutting off heads I’m sharper than barbers whenever they s have the closest
Now your out of focus don’t be breading me like hovisd
Had to separate the real from the bogus.. so

If love was the motive
Why are we over?
Trying to forget our past
I don’t really know why you did it
Boy just admit it
You don’t really care about us

I’m looking at your picture, picture
Trying to forget about us
I’m looking at your picture, picture
We no longer have no trust
Forget about us, Forget about us
