Frank Ocean Lyrics


I thought that I was dreamin' when you said you love me
The start of nothin'
I had no chance to prepare
I couldn't see you comin'
The start of nothin'
Knew I could hate you now
It's quite alright to hate me now
When we both know that deep down
The feelin' still deep down is good

If I could see through walls, I could see you're fakin'
If you could see my thoughts you would see our faces
Safe in my rental, like an armored truck back then
We didn't give a fuck back then
I ain't a kid no more
We'll never be those kids again
We'd drive to Syd's, had the X6 back then
Back then
No matter what I did
My waves wouldn't dip back then
Everythin' sucked back then
We were friends

I thought that I was dreamin' when you said you love me
The start of nothin'
I had no chance to prepare
I couldn't see you comin'
The start of nothin'
Knew I could hate you now
It's quite alright to hate me now
But we both know that deep down
The feelin' still deep down is good

In the halls of your hotel
Arm around my shoulder so I could tell
How much I meant to meant it sincere back then
We had time to kill back then
You ain't a kid no more
We'll never be those kids again
It's not the same, ivory's illegal
Don't you remember?
I broke your heart last week
You'll probably feel better by the weekend
Still remember, had you goin' crazy
Screamin' my name
The feelin' deep down is good

I thought that I was dreamin' when you said you love me
The start of nothin'
Had no chance to prepare
Couldn't see you comin'
And we started from nothin', ooh
I could hate you now
It's alright to hate me now
We both know that deep down
The feelin' still deep down is good

All the things I didn't mean to say
I didn't mean to do
There were things you didn't need to say
Did you need to? Need to?
I could dream all night
Dream all night
I could dream all night
Dream all night
I've been dreamin', dreamin'

Cheers to this song man, I listened to this godly album for the 1st time way too late but it came when I needed it most. This song was one of the many that carried me through my heartbreak, which in my case was committing to a relationship that wasn't even official. In retrospect it was just unlucky timing, no hard feelings at all even though I was tempted to resent her... "The feeling still deep down is good." But that "logic" didn't help my emotions in any way when all my hopes and dreams of committing myself to a person were all shut down when they called it off.

I remember listening to this when I saw on their story already moving on from our situation-ship and simping... and I had the hardest time coping: "I need to know who this is for my wellbeing... is it me?" I always thought it was so easy being with them since I truly felt attached but the moment that all happened it was so hard to accept the fact that they didn't want to go as far as I wanted with them. I guess I took them for granted man, but at least it's a lesson I learned the hard way.

Moving on was the only advice and consolation I got... but that simple idea for what now was a simple problem was too hard for me to achieve for some reason. I guess that's why I resorted to music like this to feel better about myself and my life, to feel understood and see through my tunnel vision that someone else has been there and worse.

I guess we're friends now, she got into a relationship 3 months after and so did I. Luckily and deservingly(?) I've found someone who is my rock, someone I'm WILLING to commit to, grow with, and change the worse parts of me for. I'm so glad I just hung in there man... if I didn't keep on living for the hope that the days will get better, then what's the point? I'm just a naïve 18 year old writing this but for once I feel a love worth fighting for. Through my rose tinted glasses I guess I just wanted to appreciate the service that this song has done for me and I just hope much, much more people have the opportunity to enjoy and connect with this song like I did.

Edit: She broke up with me because she lost feelings... I can't even listen to this song because it's too sad now...

I thought that I was dreamin'
When you said you love me
The start of nothin'
I had no chance to prepare
I couldn't see you comin'

The start of nothin'
I could hate you now
It's quite alright to hate me now
When we both know that deep down
The feeling still deep down is good

If I could see through walls
I could see you're faking
If you could see my thoughts
You would see our faces
Safe in my rental like an armored truck back then

We didn't give a fuck back then
I ain't a kid no more
We'll never be those kids again
We'd drive to Syd's, had the X6 back then
Back then

No matter what I did
My waves wouldn't dip back then
Everything sucked back then
We were friends

I thought that I was dreaming
When you said you loved me
The start of nothin'
I had no chance to prepare
I couldn't see you comin'

The start of nothin' (Ooh, ooh)
I could hate you now
It's quite alright to hate me now
But we both know that deep down
The feeling still deep down is good

In the halls of your hotel
Arm around my shoulder so I could tell
How much I meant to you, meant it sincere back then
We had time to kill back then
You ain't a kid no more
We'll never be those kids again
It's not the same, ivory's illegal
Don't you remember?

I broke your heart last week
You'll probably feel better by the weekend
Still remember, had you going crazy
Screamin' my name
The feeling deep down is good

I thought that I was dreaming
When you said you loved me
The start of nothin'
I had no chance to prepare
Couldn't see you coming

And we started from nothin'
I could hate you now
It's alright to hate me now
We both know that deep down
The feeling still deep down is good

All the things I didn't mean to say
I didn't mean to do
There were things you didn't need to say
Did you mean to? Mean to
I've been dreamin' of you, dreamin' of you
I've been dreamin' of you, dreamin' of you
I've been dreamin', dreaming

i’ve been listening to this song since i was 17 (two years ago) and every time i listened to it a weird kind of something tugged in my chest. that melancholic, hurt, yearning swirl of emotions is so tangible in this song that i felt each of his emotions without ever having to fall in love and then i made a mistake, drunkenly brought to light feelings that i didn’t even know i was capable of having. it put 7 years of comfortable friendship into uncharted territory but we talked and then it was fine.

but is it really? i told her that i wouldn’t need anything from her and nothing would change; looking back on it i think i had hoped it was just the alcohol talking and it would pass. i think that i really believed we could go back to where we had been. that was so stupid though. nothing has changed except the uselessness of my thoughts and how i overthink things that i never had to when it comes to her. sometimes i can trick myself into forgetting around her and sometimes i can’t. does she think that i think about her? ivy feels like her thoughts sometimes.

“i thought that i was dreaming when you said you loved me. the start of nothing, i had no chance to prepare i couldn’t see you coming.” - she had no clue (to be fair neither did i).

“if i could see through walls i could see you faking.” - i forget what we were like before.

“i could hate you now.” - well.

“i broke your heart last week you’ll probably feel better by the weekend” - the most we’ve talked about it was over a weekend. it’s been months since then.

“there were things you didn’t need to say. did you mean to?” - i didn’t mean to.

but i know, like i really know and i bet she knows too that deep down the feelings are good. so it’s okay.

[Chorus]
I thought that I was dreamin' when you said you love me
The start of nothin'
I had no chance to prepare, I couldn't see you comin'
The start of nothin'
Ooh, I could hate you now
It's quite alright to hate me now
When we both know that deep down
The feeling still deep down is good

[Verse 1]
If I could see through walls, I could see you're faking
If you could see my thoughts, you would see our faces
Safe in my rental like an armored truck back then
We didn't give a fuck back then
I ain't a kid no more
We'll never be those kids again
We'd drive to Syd's
Had the X6 back then, back then
No matter what I did, my waves wouldn't dip back then
Everything sucked back then, we were friends

But we both know that deep down
The feeling still deep down is good

[Verse 2]
In the halls of your hotel
Arm around my shoulder so I could tell
How much I meant to you, meant it sincere back then
We had time to kill back then
You ain't a kid no more, we'll never be those kids again
It's not the same, ivory's illegal, don't you remember?

[Bridge]
I broke your heart last week
You'll probably feel better by the weekend
Still remember, had you going crazy
Screamin' my name, the feeling deep down is good

[Chorus]
I thought that I was dreamin' when you said you love me
The start of nothin'
Had no chance to prepare, couldn't see you comin'
And we started from nothin'
Ooh, I could hate you now
It's alright to hate me now
We both know that deep down
The feeling still deep down is good

[Outro]
All the things I didn't mean to say, I didn't mean to do
There were things you didn't need to say, did you mean to? Mean to?
I've been dreamin' of you, dreamin' of you
I've been dreamin' of you, dreamin' of you
I've been dreamin', dreamin'
