Streets
Doja Cat Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I've been going through some things (oh)
I struggle with my inner man (yeah, yeah)
I hustle, I'll do what I can-can to get this money
(Blaq Tuxedo)
(Don Dada on the, Don Dada on the beat)

Like you
Like you
Like you, ooh
I found it hard to find someone like you
Like you
Like you
Send your location, come through

I can't sleep no more
In my head, we belong
And I can't be without you
Why can't I find no one like you?
I can't sleep no more
In my head, we belong
And I can't be without you
Why can't I find no one like you?

Baby, we tried to fight it
We all been there some days
Thought I needed something else
And acted like I was okay
We just had to work it out
And baby, I needed space
Ain't nobody 'round here on your level
You're so far away

You're pourin' your heart out
I'm acting like I knew
You held me so down
So down I never grew, oh
I tried to find out
When none of them came through
And now I'm stuck in the middle
And baby had to pull me out, oh

Like you
Like you
Like you, ooh
I found it hard to find someone like you
Like you
Like you
Send your location, come through

Yeah, damn papa, you a rare breed
No comparing
And it's motherfucking scary
Tryna keep him 'cause I found him
Let a ho know
I ain't motherfucking sharing
I could take you to the parents
Then to Paris
Plan a motherfucking wedding
You the type I wanna marry (yeah)
And keep you merry
I put a ring on when you're ready
We play our fantasies out in real life ways and
No Final Fantasy, can we end these games though?
You give me energy, make me feel lightweight (woo)
Like the birds of a feather, baby (woo)
We real life made for (woo) each other
And it's hard to keep my cool
When other bitches tryna get with my dude and
When other chickens tryna get in my coop
'Cause you a one in a million, there ain't a man like you

Like you
Like you
Like you, ooh
I found it hard to find someone like you
Like you
Like you
Send your location, come through

I can't sleep no more
In my head, we belong
And I can't be without you
Why can't I find no one like you?
I can't sleep no more
In my head, we belong




And I can't be without you
Why can't I find no one like you?

Overall Meaning

The song "Streets" by Doja Cat delves into the struggles of a woman who is searching for true love amidst the chaos of the modern dating world. The opening lines suggest that the artist is going through difficult times, and is struggling to come to terms with her inner self. She acknowledges the fact that she is hustling and working hard to make money, but is still longing for someone special in her life. The refrain "Like you" is a testament to the fact that she is looking for someone unique and different, someone that she cannot find easily.


The chorus of the song is a mix of vulnerability and longing. It seems that the artist cannot sleep at night because she feels that she belongs to someone special. The lyrics are an expression of her desire to be with this person, and her frustration at not being able to find someone like him. She seems to be stuck in a limbo, not able to move forward or find someone else, but at the same time, she cannot let go of her feelings for this special person.


The second verse of the song is all about the struggles of maintaining a relationship. The artist talks about how she needed space and how they had to work things out. She acknowledges the fact that there is no one like her partner and that he is on a different level altogether. The following verse sees Doja Cat expressing her feelings of possessiveness towards her partner. She says that she finds it difficult to keep her cool when other women try to get with him.
