A lot of people pretend that they're not Drake fans, but I see right through it. We all streamed his surprise album If You're Reading This, It's Too Late when it dropped. We all have captioned an Instagram with his lyrics. We've all listened to a Drake song and "felt some type of way." Say what you want, but we all love Drake's lyrics for one reason or another. Or, at the very least, every one of us can relate to his words — especially when it comes to those about exes and old relationships.
There are plenty of Drake lyrics that will make you want to text an ex and reminisce... or whatever else you feel like doing. So be careful before bumping that Drake music. Trust me, girl. Don't do it. Or if you do, proceed with caution.
You might have already seen the warnings in meme form: "Don't Drake and drive. You'll end up crying in your ex's driveway." "If you say your ex's name three times standing in front of a mirror, Drake will appear and cry with you." "Drake's music will have you staying up late at night wondering what went wrong in a relationship you were never in." The list goes on and on.
If you still don't believe me, step away from your phone, and check out these text-inducing Drake lyrics.
"Girl don’t treat me like a stranger. Girl you know I seen ya naked. Girl you know that I remember, don’t be a pretender."
These lyrics from "Furthest Thing" mean that as much as you may want to, you can't erase the relationships of the past. Plus, it's in poor taste to ignore an ex or act like you don't even know them. But toe this line with caution. There's a difference between respectful acknowledgement and hitting up an ex to "catch up." We all know what that really means.
"You know I stay reminiscing. And makeup sex is tradition. But you been missing girl. And you might feel like nothing was the same."
Well, these "Furthest Thing" lyrics get right to the point. You don't have to have makeup sex to "reminisce." Just make sure you actually want to reconnect and you're not just Draking and driving.
"I hate that you don't think I belong to ya. Just too busy running s--t to run home to ya."
"Furthest Thing" is really the pinnacle of all ex texting songs. This line exemplifies the struggle between a career and a love life. Or, you know, what ever the hell else you're doing and a love life.
"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?"
Just because you don't want to see you ex with someone new, it does not mean that they should be with you. I feel what Drake is saying in these "From Time" lyrics, but sometimes you just need to let it go.
"I can’t get over you, you left your mark on me. I want your hot love and emotion, endlessly."
These "Hold On, We're Going Home" lyrics are pretty sentimental, but be careful. You probably left "home" for a good reason.
"I'm more than just a number. I doubt you'll find another. So every single summer I'll be the one that you'll remember."
There are always memories sparking some old feelings, but you'll never "Find Your Love" if you're not open to the opportunity. Don't let being stuck on an ex prevent you from finding love.
"I was trippin’ off how I used to sleep at ya crib. Should drive by right where you live, and pick you up on the way."
Booty calls, eh? I say, if you really want your ex back, then settle for a sober, daytime conversation, instead of just attempting to "Come Thru" in the middle of the night.
Do you believe me now? If you're a Drake fan, I would stay far away from your phone if you want to listen to his music. Otherwise, you might regret it. You might end up initiating a booty call, a heart-to-heart, or a confession.
