Singalong! Figures by Jessie Reyez

It's been a while since I came across a new artist who grabbed me. Jessie Reyez, you're that artist! Check out her incredible song, Figures, learn the words, sing along. I love the sentiment she shares of wishing so badly there was some way you could get back at the person who hurt you (despite whatever notions you might have that you're better than that), but you know that there's just no way to do it. Been there, felt that.


FIGURES
by Jessie Reyez

Figures
I gave you ride or die and you gave me games
Love figures
I know I'm crying cause you just won't change
Love figures
I gave it all and you gave me shit
Love figures
I wish I could do exactly what you did

I wish I could hurt you back
Love, what would you do if you couldn't get me back
You're the one who's gonna lose
Something so special, something so real
Tell me boy, how in the fuck would you feel?
If you couldn't get me back
That's what I wish that I could do to you, you
To you, you

Figures
I'm the bad guy cause I can't learn to trust
Love figures
You say sorry once and you think it's enough
I got a lineup of girls and a lineup of guys
Begging for me just to give 'em a try
Figures
I'm willing to stay
Cause I'm sick for your love

I wish I could hurt you back
Love, what would you do if you couldn't get me back
You're the one who's gonna lose
Something so special, something so real
Tell me boy, how in the fuck would you feel?
If you couldn't get me back
That's what I wish that I could do to you, you
To you, you
