Lyrics “Basement” – Russ feat. Jessie Reyez

Love me like I’m still in the basement, yeah
Love me like I still haven’t made it
Who are you if you ever give up, yeah
What’s real love without slip ups, yeah
I been drinkin’ ’til I can’t see any red flags
(I ignored your faults)
In a couple shots I’m probably gonna text back
(I ignored your faults)
These other women, something’s missin’
When I f**k ’em, barely touch ’em
When I f**k you, we be kissin’
Oh, oh, oh, oh, I
(I ignored your faults)Love me like I’m still in the basement, yeah
Love me like I still haven’t made it
Who are you if you ever give up, yeah
What’s real love without slip ups, yeah
Love me like your momma doesn’t hate me
I ignored your faults
Ain’t you say all your friends say that they rate me
But I ignored your faults
And now these new ones I ain’t used to
They be tryna do what you do but they missin’
‘Cause they shit ain’t LOE
I heard your momma talkin’ like she blames me
But you know this is your fault
Just tryna get you closer
Yeah f**k you in your clothes
So I ignored your faults
I tell you to come over
Don’t care that I’m not sober
Just ignore my faults
Love me like I’m still in the basement, yeah
Love me like I still haven’t made it
Who are you if you ever give up, yeah
What’s real love without slip ups, yeahJust tryna get you closer
Yeah f**k you in your clothes
So I ignored your faults
I tell you to come over
Don’t care that I’m not sober
Just ignore my faults…
