    dont assume you know me
    even if you know me
    i let you see what i want you to see
    you'll get only what i give of me
    even if sometimes you can see past that clearly
    verse's ability
    is his versatility
    dont judge me based on another cuz he
    probably
    no definitely
    aint built like me
    you dont see with my eyes
    even with vision blurred
    your mouth dont speak my truths or lies
    even if words are slurred
    my hands destroy and repair
    my hearing aint impaired
    you tickle my nose hairs
    as it detects your scent
    even in a room mopped with vinegar
    you think you know me because of money i've spent
    and attempts
    to drop clothes and get into ya
    game recognize game
    but dont say aint a **** thing changed
    actually aint a **** thing been the same
    except you thinking you know me and know what i feel
    thinking you know my next line before it revealed
    predicting my fate before its sealed
    nah i'd rather you treat me like someone new
    someone about who
    you trying to find out a thing or two
    no pre-formed notions that get in the way
    no history or track record instant replay
    no foregone conclusions
    no grand delusions
    matter of fact
    lets take it back
    to when all we had was favorite songs
    we've known each other so long
    but dont know each other at all
    i'm trying to get that problem solved
    you still see the boy
    but watch the man evolve
