lyrics

Chunjay, Verse 1:
Got you on my mind but I really probably shouldn’t
Spent too much time on you like a good student
Studying for a test like our life would be the best
The reality is that life with you would be a stress
It hurts me to say and I think that you are great
But cute shorts and fun drinks aren’t a lifetime exchange
Thinking things will change, definition of insanity
A gateway to embrace some kind of deep apathy
I chose chastity—you woulda let me hit it
I wish that we could kiss and I will not forget it when we did
I love you kid and that’s the truth
But you a mixed up girl, I gotta lay new roots
So I wish you all the best and I pray that you are blessed
Need to say these things can’t leave them unexpressed
Hope you figure out all the things you need to do
I love you with my whole heart but I’m letting go of you

Chunjay, Chorus:
(Hey!)
She’s on my mind and she’s on my heart (Hey!)
These things remind me why we’re apart
The good things were way up off the charts
But I’m no longer blind so I must depart

Chunjay, Verse 2:
I wrote that “A Las Chicas” and I had the best intentions
But I was a young kid relationships have dimensions
Beyond just loving God it takes more than simple faith
Add works to the plate and kindness to what you pray
I tried never to stray, honored God with my body
Application of the teaching on occasion kinda spotty
Yielded messed up situations broken up by some hottie
But you, my dear, are leagues beyond everybody
I never met another girl who impacted me like that
Your time I enrolled and asked if perhaps
I could get a chance, just to be your shining star
I was whining for a glance to be back up on your radar
You should know the truth I never met a soul like you
I never been so broken up by getting knocked out of the queue
Hope you figure out all the things you need to do
I love you with my whole heart but im letting go of you

Chunjay, Verse 3:
We had a conversation ’bout us on that Sunday night
Amazing your explanations wrecked me without a fight
“That’s what I want too, that’s what I wanna do”
Reading old love letters and pledging to be true
Tried to walk away cried out to be estranged
But I bought your complaints and your pledge that things would change
Have a strange way of changin’ doing more of the same
Blame shifting over texts I saw right through your game
You see it’s quite easy no need for a co-coaster
Loved you freely and deeply, relax I came closer
Wrap my arms around your body and my heart around your soul
Disposition embodied one consistently enrolled
No need for stop and go, no need for ebb and flow
We should drop the show, love shouldn’t take that kind of toll
Hope you figure out all the things you need to do
I love you with my whole heart but im letting go of you
