Here Are the Lyrics to Drake's 'The Motion'

Drake
Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic for HBO

Drake attends HBO's "Euphoria" premiere at the Arclight Pacific Theatres' Cinerama Dome on June 4, 2019 in Los Angeles.

"The Motion" is another re-released track from Drake's compilation album Care Package, out Aug. 2.

With backing vocals by Sampha, who also has a production credit on the song, "The Motion" originally dropped on his SoundCloud in anticipation of his 2013 album Nothing Was The Same.

The song was then included as an exclusive track on the deluxe version of the album and taken down from SoundCloud.

Check out the full lyrics below. 

It's not me and you, it's not me it's you
You're reckless and you know it, they don't love you like I do
Say you're movin' on, well, I guess that's just the motion

I guess that's just the motion, oh
I guess that's just the motion, oh
I guess that's just the motion, oh-oh
I guess that's just the motion (oh-oh)

I don't have a fuck to give, I've been moving state to state
In my leather and my Timbs like it's 1998
And my dog Chubby Chub, that's my n---a from the way
On the east side of the city, that's where everybody stay
Seem like everybody calling 'cause they want me on their song
It's like every time I touch it I could never do no wrong
When they need a favor from you, man, they don't leave you alone

But I guess that's just the motion
Yeah, then that phone doesn't ring
When they got everything, that's the motion, oh
I guess that's just the motion, oh-oh
I guess that's just the motion

Yeah
Lookin' back on it, at least my pride is intact
'Cause we said no strings attached and I still got tied up in that
Everything that I write is either for her or about her
So I'm with her even when I'm here without her and she know it
The girl that I wanna save is like a danger to my health
Try bein' with somebody that wanna be somebody else
I always thought she was perfect when she was bein' herself
Don't even know how to help

But I guess that's just the motion
Yeah, she'll probably come around
Soon as I settle down, that's the motion, oh
I guess that's just the motion, oh-oh
I guess that's just the motion
I guess that's just the motion

Nothin' less and nothin' more
I hear your heart hit the floor
I guess that's just the motion
Talkin' to you is not enough, no
I guess that's just the motion, oh-oh
I guess that's just the motion
I guess that's just the motion, oh
I guess that's just the motion, oh
I guess that's just the motion, oh-oh
I guess that's just the motion
