[Verse 1] Ooh Everywhere I go, I see love turn into somethin' it's not People caught up in the image, when's this shit gon' stop? When he gets down on his knee and that question gets popped She's like, "Yes, babe!" Eyes still locked at the rock He's got bands, he wants a pretty lady who wants a Mercedes-Benz So they can both show off to their friends They're in the whip, they're in the penthouse and they're in the jet to France Damn, it seems like love's the only thing that they ain't in Divin' in headfirst into some shallow waters I'm just touchin' on a subject that I feel is kinda catastrophic I'm not sayin' every couple with money's got this problem But in some cases without the label, she'd be straight up robbin' Takin' vows to the coffin on the wedding day Ain't no prenupt needed, she convinced him it's true Perfectly curved, believin' every word that she spewed Was blinded by the beauty, can't see through
[Chorus] Is this shallow love? Or is it something real? You make it hard to deal Not knowin' if this is shallow love The way we live so well Can make it so hard to tell What you in it for? What you really in it for?
[Verse 2] So girl tell me what you in it for Is it cause I'm young and livin' like a centerfold? Is it cause I'm takin' you places that you ain't been before? By the looks of it this love is too fake, we might as well just call the dentist, yo You see why I'm trippin' though? Cause man if shit's like this now Then what's it gon' be like when we get to the pinnacle? And I suppose only time's gon' tell But as of now, we're doin' fine, no help Girl you're a piece of work that God designed so well But you don't need to check the worth before you ride with me Put that man aside if he's all about bein' with someone just to get inside Or if he's hopin' and prayin' that you gon' stay when he gets caught When he slips up, fightin', pullin' all sorts and types of straws Now the jig's up, left broken in pieces like a jigsaw But that's just how shit goes When you let the shallow love get hope Girl I just wanna know
[Chorus] Is this shallow love? (whas up) Or is it something real? (something real) You make it hard to deal (so hard to deal) Not knowin' if this is shallow love (come on) The way we live so well (so well) Can make it so hard to tell (uhh uhh yeah) What you in it for? What you really in it for?
[Bridge] Nowadays these girls be so ruthless 2 A.M. knockin' on my front door, who's this? Girl I don't even know your name This ain't the time yo Oh my God this is so insane Like I ain't even got your number saved in my iPhone Oh [Chorus] Is this shallow love? (what's up) Or is it something real? You make it hard to deal Not knowin' if this is shallow love (what's up) The way we live so well (so well) Can make it so hard to tell What you in it for? What you really in it for? Tell me now, now tell me now
