The Worst by Jhene Aiko (Lyrics)

Tell me what you say now?
Tell me what you say
Come again?

If you cannot stay down
Then you do not have to pretend
Like there is no way out
I shoulda never let you in
Cause you got me face down

And don’t take this personal
But you’re the worst
You know what you’ve done to me
And although it hurts I know
I just can’t keep runnin’ away

I don’t need you [x4]
But I want you
I don’t mean to [x4]
But I love you

Tell me what you say now
Tell me what you say?
You said that you would come again
You (said) that we would remain friends but
You know that I do not depend on
Nothing or no one
So why would you show up
So uninvited then
Just change my mind like that

Please don’t take this personal
But you ain’t shit
And you weren’t special
Til I made you so
You better act like you know
That I’ve been through worse than you
I just can’t keep running away
(But I don’t need you)


Everybody’s like
He’s no item
Please don’t like em
He don’t wife em
He one nights em
I never listened
I shoulda figured though
All that shit you was spittin’
So unoriginal
But it was you
So I was with it
Then tell you the truth
Wish we never did it

Cause I usually do
Stick to the business
But you came out the blue
And then you just flipped it
God damn baby
My mind’s blown
Be forgettin’
You live in a different time zone
Think I know what this is
It’s just the time’s wrong
Yeah I know what you did
But baby I’m grown
And my love is patient
And kind, and shit
This is real we can build
Through different types of shit
If you was really the realest
Wouldn’t be fightin’ it
I think your pride is just
In the way
Funny how everything changed
Once you got all that you wanted
Nothing was ever the same

And though
I don’t need you [x4]
I still want you
I don’t mean to [x4]
But I love you

I don’t need you [x4]
But I want you
I don’t mean to [x4]
But I love you

    I really love that song and can truly relate to the lyrics do so much for a MOfo and then they treat u like “the worst”

  2. Gigionthat

  3. TWana Tells

    Her voice isn’t that great but I love this song

  4. MrsGrapevine

    I loved this song, too. I didn’t like the live performance as much. But this song is definitely on my playlist.

  5. Hollywoodhiccups

    I’m not a big fan of hers, her voice doesn’t sound unique.
