From Time Lyrics


What's up? Been a minute since we kicked it, you've been caught up
With them bitches, I don't get it, you're a star love
You shouldn't have to deal with that, I'd never make you feel like that

'Cause I love me, I love me enough for the both of us
That's why you trust me, I know you've been through more than most of us
So what are you? What are you, what are you so afraid of?
Darling you, you give but you cannot take love

Yeah I needed to hear that shit, I hate when you're submissive
Passive aggressive when we're texting, I feel the distance
I look around the peers that surround me, these niggas tripping
I like when money makes a difference but don't make you different
Started realizing a couple places I can take it
I want to get back to when I was that kid in the basement
I want to take it deeper than money, pussy, vacation
And influence a generation that's lacking in patience
I've been dealing with my dad, speaking a lack of patience
Just me and my old man getting back to basics
We've been talking 'bout the future and time that we wasted
When he put that bottle down, girl that nigga's amazing
Well, fuck it, we had a couple Coronas
We might have rolled a white paper, just something to hold us
We even talked about you and our couple of moments
He said we should hash it out like a couple of grown ups
You a flower child, beautiful child, I'm in your zone
Looking like you came from the 70's on your own
My mother is 66 and her favorite line to hit me with is
Who the fuck wants to be 70 and alone?
Y'all don't even know what you want from love anymore
I search for something I'm missing and disappear when I'm bored
But girl, what qualities was I looking for before?
Who you settling for? Who better for you than the boy, hah?

I love me, I love me enough for the both of us
That's why you trust me, I know you been through more than most of us
So what are you? What are you, what are you so afraid of?
Darling you, you give but you cannot take love

Thinking 'bout Texas back when Porsche used to work at Treasures
Or further back then that, before I had the Houston leverage
When I got Summer a Michael Kors with my momma's debit
A weak attempt at flexing, I'll never forget it
'Cause that night I played her three songs
Then we talked about something we disagreed on
Then she started telling me how I'll never be as big as Trey Songz
Boy was she wrong, that was just negative energy for me to feed off
Now it's therapeutic blowing money in a galleria
Or Beverly Center Macy's where I discovered Bria
Landmarks to the 'muses that inspired the music
When I could tell it was sincere without trying to prove it
The one that I needed was Kourtney from Hooters on P Street
I've always been feeling like she was the piece to complete me
Now she engaged to be married, what's the rush on commitment?
Know we were going through some shit, name a couple that isn’t
Remember our talk in the parking lot at the Ritz
Girl I thought we had it all planned out, guess I fucked up the vision
Learning the true consequences of my selfish decisions
When you find out how I’m living I just hope I’m forgiven
It seems like you don’t want this love anymore
I’m acting out in the open it’s hard for you to ignore
But girl, what qualities was I looking for before?
Who you settling for, who better for you than the boy, huh?

I love me, I love me enough for the both of us
That's why you trust me, I know you been through more than most of us
So what are you? What are you, what are you so afraid of?
Darling you, you give but you cannot take love

"Been Bocka AKA Not Nice From Timegiene been a East Side ting,
Scarborough ting from time, G,
Been have up di ting dem from time, G.
So I don't know what's wrong with these lil waste mans out here eh,
Y'all need to know yourself."

From Time
  • Los Angeles singer-songwriter Jhené Aiko starts off the hook for this conversation between Drake and an old flame by singing: "I love me, I love me enough for the both of us." She explained to Rap Genius that it means: "I love myself enough to know what love actually is … I'm not concerned with you loving me or not…. that has nothing to do with the love I have for you. I am so full of love that I can love you and me… at the same damn time."
  • Drake mentions some girls from his past including Bria Myles from Macy's and how they inspired his rhymes:

    "Beverly Center Macy's where I discovered Bria
    Landmarks to the muses that inspired the music"

    Drake previously spoke about Bria Myles on "Bria's Interlude," a track from his So Far Gone mixtape, where he gives more background to how they met.
  • The song's melancholic piano riff was played by Chilly Gonzales. Drake first met the Paris-based Canadian pianist and producer through Gonzales' father, who lives in the same building as the Toronto MC. Amongst his other contributions to Drizzy's oeuvre was playing the piano outro on "Marvin's Room."
  • Drake also raps about "Courtney from Hooters on Peachtree," whom he'd hoped would be "the piece to complete me" until she got engaged to someone else. It didn't take long after the song's release for people to track her down. Courtney Janell works at the Hooters restaurant on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgia and has made appearances in several music videos, including The-Dream's "Trilogy," as well as popping up on BET's The Game.

    Drake admitted to Vibe magazine that name-checking Courtney in this song was a mistake and a wake-up call. He said: "I've just gotten too big to do that. I never wanted to cause her any stress in her life, and I think she's such a good, wholehearted person. They made up this whole fake flyer online [about] hosting parties, which she doesn't. She's like the best girl ever. It was tough for me to watch that happen. I repeatedly kept apologizing. I didn't think it was that specific—she doesn't even work there anymore."

    "I don't want to be looked at as a guy who exploits his relationships, but I feel it's okay because I'm not saying anything negative," Drake added. "I'm just telling the story and usually in their favor, usually saying I was the one that f---ed up. I don't know if I'm ever gonna continue with that formula, but it definitely gives people a more personable listen. And I feel like I've established these characters. Paris Morton is a character—I always check in with Paris, like 'this is happening, this is what it is.' I think people are intrigued, like 'Who is this girl that's your muse? Who is Bria? Why did she get an interlude?' With Courtney I just expected it to go a little better. It got blown out of proportion because she was too accessible. My apologies to her, formally."
  • Aiko told Radio.com about penning the hook for this Drake song: "I wanted to write something for him that he would like and the first thing I wrote was very personal," she said. "So when I got into the studio with him I laid down the hook, freestyled it. We had instant chemistry."
