Was I supposed to come so close to loving you
That I couldn't see
Was I supposed to drown myself in thoughts of you
To where I could no longer breathe
You're just a silhouette 
Of a perfect man
Cos you take me higher 
Than I have ever been
Just to break me down
Into a thousand pieces
Boy you make me wish I was a hustler 

So I could move the weight 
Off of my shoulders 
And I could run away
If I could be a hustler 
Then I would move the weight 
Off of my shoulders 
And I would run away
Away home

Such a waste of my time
You are everything you shouldn't be
And how one seconds introduction
 Could become a lifetime of misery 
You're just a silhouette 
Of a perfect man
Cos you take me higher 
Than I have ever been
Just to break me down
Into a thousand pieces
Boy you make me wish I was a hustler 

So I could move the weight 
Off of my shoulders 
And I could run away
If I could be a hustler 
Then I would move the weight 
Off of my shoulders 
And I would run away
Away from you
So I could move the weight 
If I could be a hustler 
And I could run away
From this corner you got me stuck on
And I would move away
Boy you make me wish I was a hustler 
Aye
If I could be a hustler 
Yeah

So I could move the weight 
And I could run away
Then I would move the weight 
The I would run away
