Saba – BUSY / SIRENS lyrics

(feat. ​theMIND)

[Part I: “BUSY”]

[Verse 1: Saba]
I’m so alone, but all of my friends, but all of my friends
Got some shit to do, yeah, all ’em got plans
I call ’em “My bad” and text ’em
They never cross me like bad pedestrians
I’ve been this awkward since adolescence
I don’t know how long I had depression
Never no peer-pressure
I’m tryna’ get my little pecker off in some girl
I call my BFF, that ain’t no secret kept
I fucked then told my cousin
I’m broke, I wasn’t buzzin’
I tried to hit a few years, she wasn’t budgin’
I’m bogus, left my girl for some shawty
Surely deservin’ of all this lonely
“You sad? Tell me, how are you sad?
You got all of these friends, you got all of these fans”
I ain’t trust nobody new since 2012, I ain’t let nobody in
Jesus got killed for our sins, Walter got killed for a coat
I’m tryna cope, but it’s a part of me gone in this bedroom I’m alone

[Chorus: theMIND & Saba]
I’m havin’ a busy day, I’ll hit you back right away
I seen that skies were grey, I hope to God you’re safe
I’m havin’ a busy day, I’ll hit you back right away
I seen that skies were grey, I hope to God you’re safe
Ohhh, ohhh

[Verse 2: Saba]
I’m so alone, just me and my girl, she leave me for work
Then leave me for school, she finally home, I leave her for tour
FaceTiming nudity, yeah, all of this new to me, yeah
All of the infidelity when I was 17 been catchin’ up
It still feel like she catch me cheatin’
Niggas askin’ me how tour was
Knowin’ I been home like two months
And I seen your ass like two times
Save the small-talk like too, damn
No time, social interaction
Had female friends I found attractive
I tried to fuck but I am no savage
Now we don’t speak, we just walk past ’em
If my past could talk
It’d probably reply to the missed calls after all
Cause the friendships that I can’t recall
Done turned my heart into camouflage
While the guys I used to play basketball with
Doin’ shit that I can’t endorse
Now with the Lord now, when it pours down
Was alone then, still alone now

[Chorus: theMIND & Saba]
I’m havin’ a busy day, I’ll hit you back right away
I seen that skies were grey, I hope to God you’re safe
I’m havin’ a busy day, I’ll hit you back right away
I seen that skies were grey, I hope to God you’re safe
Ohhh, ohhh

[Verse 3: theMIND]
I’m barely here, how I ain’t present?
Yeah, I drift for a second, forgot to reply to your message
But all these years, I been the same in your presence (I’m still here)
Countin’ the seconds before I reply to your message
My biggest fear (is that I have to say goodbye another time)
Is that I have to say goodbye another time
(Not like this, not like this, not like this)
So I skip town on our moment, hopefully prolonging this
I don’t need nobody new to miss (I like this)
I want you to know
Ooooh, ooh ooh, ohh

[Part II: “SIRENS”]

[Chorus: Saba]
Sirens on the way, ayy
Now you’re lying where the angels, lay, yeah
Sirens on the way, ayy
Now we’re lying where the angels, lay, yeah
Sirens on the way, ayy
Now you’re lying where the angels, lay, yeah
Sirens on the way, ayy
Now we’re lying where the angels, yeah

[Verse: Saba]
Ridin’ through the city, I’m young, I’m black, I’m guilty
I know one time wanna kill me, they don’t know me but they fear me
15 years old with the sticky, they gon’ blame it on the marijuana
Hands behind your head, and they won’t let up off the head
What if I move to this one state? What if they shoot and that shit hit?
What if I run then it look bad? Drawing they gun right off the hip
I’m probably deservin’, cause I know they serve and protect
But they think I’m servin’, or they think my cellphone’s a weapon
Heard that the robber wore a black mask
I fit the description, a.k.a. “nigga”
What is the difference? Is it the name?
And we so divided, I’m from Division
Clutch that purse cause of my dreadlocks
Cross that street cause I’m with my friends
Curse every song in hip-hop, keep telling yourself it’s a fad, ayy

[Chorus: Saba]
Sirens on the way, ayy
Now you’re lying where the angels, lay, yeah
Sirens on the way, ayy
Now we’re lying where the angels, lay, yeah
Sirens on the way, ayy
Now you’re lying where the angels, lay, yeah
Sirens on the way, ayy
Now we’re lying where the—
