Connect Lyrics


Yeah, isn't it amazing how you talk all this shit and we still lack communication
How beautiful our kids will be, girl, I don't need convincing
How every conversation starts with "this time will be different" oh
Oh the idea's fun
Oh the idea's fun
Oh the idea is so fun every time
At least we try for home run every time

Swangin', eyes closed just swangin'
Same city, same friends if you're looking for me
Same city, same friends if you're looking
I'll be here just swangin'
Don't talk to me like I'm famous
And don't assume 'cause I don't expect assumptions babe
I'm just tryna Connect with somethin' babe, yeah swangin' eh

She just wanna run around the city and make memories that she can barely remember
And I'd allow her, talk about pussy power
Yea she just wanna run over my feelings
Like she drinkin' and drivin' in an 18 wheeler and I'd allow her,
Talk about pussy power
She used to say "You can be whoever you want, even yourself"
Yeah, I show up knowin' exactly who I was and never leave as myself
But when it falls apart, I'm always still down
To pick a million tiny little pieces off the ground
'Cause you would learn to love people and use things and not the other way around

Swangin', eyes closed just swangin'
Same city, same friends if you're looking for me
Same city, same friends if you're looking
I'll be here just swangin' eh
Don't talk to me like I'm famous eh
And don't assume cause I don't expect assumptions babe
I'm just tryna connect with somethin' babe I'll be here just swangin'

I remember when my schedule was as flexible as she is
She call and tell me be here before the sun up I be dressed before we hung up
I take Eglinton to 401 east and
Exit at Markham road in the east end
Where all the pretty girls are sleeping
My license been expired I renew it after the weekend
Fuck I know I said that shit the last 7 weekends
Girl I guess procrastination is my weakness
I hate stoppin' for gas this late 'cause this nigga's creepin' and I like how we're creepin'
Summer is comin' know you could feel it
20 on pump whatever I ain't got enough to fill it
Won't knock on your door
My uncle say, "You drive my whip like it's yours"
I got the pedal to the floor
I'm on my motherfuckin' way swangin'

Don't fall asleep on me, hang in there
I'll be there just swangin'
I'll be there just swangin'
I treat you good girl like you're famous
I know I'm late it's always the same shit
But don't fall asleep on me, hang in there
I'm on the road right now swangin, girl

Connect
  • This emotional song finds Drake describing an on-off poisonous relationship with a girl. Despite the fact that she is constantly running around the city partying and communication is a problem, he keeps finding ways to justify staying with her. "That one hits you in the heart," Drake told Rolling Stone. "It's painful and beautiful at the same time."
  • Drake used to drive around in his uncle's drop top Lexus before he was signed. He refers to this in the lyric, "My uncle say, 'You drive my whip like it's yours.'" The Toronto rapper also discussed this memory on "Started from the Bottom" when he rapped: "And my uncle calling me like 'Where ya at? I gave you the keys told ya bring it right back."
  • Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke supplied the beat. He also helped create the soundscapes on a couple of Kanye West's Yeezus tracks, "I Am a God" and "Blood On The Leaves." In addition, Mohawke released a self-titled EP as one half of the duo TNGHT with Canadian producer Lunice. The pair lent one of its beats to Lil Wayne for the I Am Not a Human Being Part II track, "Lay It Down."
  • The Toronto poet Kenza Samir helped Drake write this song. She recalled: "When I texted him, 'Isn't it amazing, how you talk all that s--- and still we lack communication,' he was like, 'Are you talking to me about me right now or is that for the song?'"
  • Speaking to Vibe Magazine, Drake was asked how he came up with such lines as: "Wish you would learn to love people and use things and not the other way around." He replied: "I just have a folder of lines. It's usually from conversations. I'll open up and see the last thing that I wrote down. [Scrolls phone] Like this'll probably never get used: 'I'm not gullible, I just trust you.' Someone must have said that to me. I kinda just write down these lines."

    "Who helped me write on 'Connect' is this girl Kenza," Drake added. "She's a great girl and a phenomenal poetry writer. We just sit together and come up with the best way to say things. Actually, me and her did [the lyric] 'love people and use things and not the other way around.' It's cool to get another creative mind in there, just someone who's thinking solely about the words and not the melodies and placement. It's nice to read her poetry sometimes, I'll take from that."
