Oddisee & Good Compny - The Goings On Lyrics

(Intro)
I had to ask her (what's goin' on)
I had to ask her (what's goin' on)
I hope she answer
I had to ask her (what's goin' on)
I had to ask her (what's goin' on)
I had to ask her (what's goin' on)
I hope she answer
Babe, what's goin' on

(Verse)
I meant to call ya the other day
I saw this girl that resembled ya on the boulevard
She had that dress on ya bought when we were in Monterey
But didn't do it justice, I guess she thought she could pull it off
It's been a minute since ya updated yo page, ya was neva into that
Guess I see ya stuck to yo ways
Remember when ya called me to ask the meaning of ratchet
I explained it then ya asked me to use it within a phrase
I saw it in the status of this chick and started laughing
Ya was always old fashion, I hope that ya haven't change
Hope ya answer my how ya been wit a can't complain
Any other response and I'll probably hop on a plane
Probably knock on yo door, probably give ya advice
End up spending the night and then fall in love wit ya twice
Yeah my phone bill's crazy from international roaming
But I really had to ask ya how's it going, so tell me

(Hook x2)
I had to ask her (what's goin' on)
I had to ask her (what's goin' on)
I had to ask her (what's goin' on)
Babe, what's goin' on
I hope she answer

(Verse 2)
I spent months avoiding ya now
We're on the same subway wit our cordial smiles
Yeah I heard ya moved to Brooklyn, but I'm hardly in town
I thought the odds of running into ya we're modest till now
We living in the big apple on a small ass tree
It's kind of hard to branch out within this small ass scene
So we bump into each other on platforms
The perfect platform to start discussing why we more less beef
I'ma blame on timing, yo school assignments and work
Ya gon' put it all on my end assumed I was doing dirt
In the territory I'm in, this is commonly wit it
Women found of me tempting my honesty yeah I get it
Communication is first, we pushed it to other digits
Bringing it to the front I can't front on the fact we didn't
Testament to resilience an ending's a new beginning
Me, I'm just doing fine but it's ya that fo'got to mention

(Hook x2)
I had to ask her (what's goin' on)
I had to ask her (what's goin' on)
I had to ask her (what's goin' on)
Babe, what's goin' on
I hope she answer

(Verse 3)
I wrote these lyrics, knowing ya won't respond
But knowing that you'll hear it'll probably help me move on
I got some shit to say that I didn't say on the phone
Women good in the moment, our thoughts take longer to form
But now this shit is clear and I know that I did ya wrong
And cowardly I was fo' the both of us ya were strong
I gave ya poison slow when I should have went fo' the throat
But I was both yo drug and yo mechanism to cope
Look me analyzing us, that was always yo job
My career was despising us, I was working it hard yo sense of entitled self
Was the perfect match fo' my guilt, I stayed in a situation I hated but couldn't help
Took a crack at escaping, persuaded by ya to stay in
Jaded by our relations I waited fo' ya to cave in
I'm sure ya want some answers in need of an explanation
My number still the same and I'm waiting
Promise I'll tell ya
