lyrics

Had to be this way

We ain't vibing no more

Tension in the room couldn't breath, had to leave this space

I'll survive on my own

Only now could I take a look back

With relief I made

To collide or condone

The hard choice when I heard your soft voice
telling me to stay

Had to flee doubt, yeah had to be out

It's a big city not enough for us to split it

I can make living anywhere that I can visit

Didn't know it 'til I pack the rental with a vision

That became reality the more that you were distant

Saw you as nest now I see you as a net

Guess you saw me as a catch now I see you as a prison

Of my own making un-made it now I'm different

Had to turn an is into an isn't

I thought you were fate

I was wrong all along

I thought you were fate

My mistake, had to make

I thought you were fate

In the end, just pretend

I thought you were fate

I don't read my stars

Though I came from the source

Not a plot in a chart to unlock and unleash my cause

Not a game on a board

Read a card, see a flaw now it's law
My belief, my loss

I ain't playing a sport

Made a bet, played a fool, nothing left but to beat my odds

Yeah of course, I'ma breach my flaws

Had to come back from a few things

This is not a new thing

Strapping up the boots with a theory in the shoe string

I think I can move things

With my, mind

Like my hands and my feet, no magic to produce things

Finding it amusing

We are in control

And we think to get the bread we gotta wait to get a role

I ain't with a few things

Writing into stone at the top

And I only broke the mold when it dropped

I thought you were fate

I was wrong all along

I thought you were fate

My mistake, had to make

I thought you were fate

In the end, just pretend

I thought you were fate
