Tryin' not to— Tryin' not to— We spoke about all these different worlds I’m speaking to but I’m still a black man in America. Oh, baby I know where you've been wait … what’s the timeline on all this? We don't know what’s there 'til it's gone I've been tryin' not to—

I been, I been It’s a difficult conversation but really important to let those around you know that you care for them and will always stand by them. I've been tryin' not to go off the deep end One of my sisters was going through a difficult time and I was struggling to know how best to help. I've been tryin' not to go off the deep end To convince us you're fine Try-Tryin' not to— Deep end of this pit, but still somehow I keep on floating on I've been tryin' not to go off the deep end (I) Hold on, don't wanna hold on deep end Lyrics: Wait up, don't wanna wait up for you baby / Still I wait up, lonely in the canyon / No love, there's no love reflecting in the glow of / Million dollar man / Show me your cut, baby But lowkey, high priest got the keys to the kingdom [Intro]

I've been tryin' not to— I changed a few of the lyrics up because I thought it would sound really cool. Show me your cut, baby, come clean Try-Tryin' not to— I wasn't gonna love you now I've been tryin' not to go off the deep end I've been tryin' not to— Give me a reason I don't think you wanna give me a reason You can tend to be insulated by your awards and your financial stability, but I still feel the pain. Indigo, deep blue, deep blue This song means a lot to me and it’s quite a personal one. I've been tryin' not to go off the deep end Your kiss is salty chlorine [Pre-Chorus] Oh, baby I know where you've been [Pre-Chorus] That we're not falling into the deep end?

And help you escape from your head

Tryin' not to—

[Pre-Chorus] We're made up of the same blood I don't think you wanna give me a reason I don't think you wanna give me a reason Give me a reason Come out of your smokescreen I've been tryin' not to go off the deep end I've been tryin' not to—

The lyrics were teased on Li’s social medias one day before the song’s release. I've been tryin' not to— I'm in it And you sink to the bottom slowly (Sink to the bottom slow) I've been tryin' not to go off the deep end

Babe, you burned me Never knew my daddy, so nobody show me It’s painful.

I've been tryin' not to go off the deep end

Sometimes legs get weak and your arms give out

A grown man wishing that somebody hold me (Hold) Foushee release a sample pack that was used by Sleepy Hallow for Deep Emd Freestyle. / It's getting close / I lose control
