Hours in Silence
Drake & 21 Savage Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Leave your phone, come to mine
You'll catch a hand in due time
I think, think that I
Could fuck the idea of him outta your mind
You said he rap, he ain't signed, that ain't a good sign
Change your mind, good conversation and some rosé wine
Unless there's some other things you gotta mind
You're my baby, ayy, ayy
The smoke got me talkin' in Dutch
A pill in Ibiza, so what?
She leanin' on me, I'm her crutch
She creamin' on me, I'm her crush
Her photos don't need a retouch
She askin' why haven't I nut
I didn't know we in a rush
Enjoyin' the moment, so hush
My album was payin' her bills
I don't even need a deluxe
Her stomach is flat as fuck
She still fit that shit in her gut somehow
The fat must've went in her butt somehow
I don't even ask her what's up
She sayin' that shit is natural
Don't care if she makin' it up
I never put you in no Uber, girl
I'm always gon' send you a truck
I'm always gon' keep it a buck
You give me that shit and I'm stuck

.30 on my waist
'Cause a lotta broke niggas 'round the way ridin' 'round town
And they lookin' for my face
Gotta pray to God above you, girl, you know that Savage love you
And I hope that you feel the same
Tryna be the one for you, but my nickname true
And I hope that I can change
Girl, you know that Savage love you, girl, you know that Savage love you

Gotta turn my bitch up, turn my bitch up
Turn my bitch up, turn my bitch up
Turn my bitch up, turn my bitch up
Turn my bitch up, turn my-
Know I gotta turn my bitch up, turn my bih, T-T
Turn my bih, T-T, turn my bih
Gotta turn my bitch up, turn my- (ayy)

I gotta stop goin' Van Cleef, condo, third week
I like it, but I'm too geeked, tryna turn you up
I gotta stop goin' Lenci', Rollie, first week
You're misreadin' me, I'm too geeked, tryna turn you up
You were lost until me
I didn't get no finder's fee
You're actin' like a bride-to-be
Behind closed doors, slimin' me
Friends are all advisin' me
Sayin' I could die tryna turn you up
There's three sides to this story, girl
The one you subtweet
The one your group chat gets to read
The one you come and tell to me
I understand it finally
I'm tryna give you highs and you're plannin' our goodbyes
But I turn you up
It's my fault
Burnin' cash like it's lit on fire
Penthouse and some new attire
I fulfilled all of your desires
You don't work, but you act retired
'Cause you know that you're mine and it's my fault
It's my fault, it's my fault, for once I take accountability
It's my fault that you got superpowers on your knees
It's my fault for once, don't keep you grounded on your feet
It's my fault for once, I drain accounts to make you love me
It's my fault for once, it's one-sided loyalty
My fault for once, I'm payin' lawyer fees
Doin' things just to set you free, see you breathe
It's my fault for once, I got the Wagon, G
Got you ridin' 'round with niggas that are nothin' like me
It's my fault for once, that's how you make it seem
It's my fault, it's my fault

You were lost until me
You were lost until me, mm-mm, mhm-mm
You were lost until me

My confidence is super low
Baby M, you know I got a heart of gold
You pawned that shit and hit the road, baby
For goodness sakes, at this rate
Your funeral is finna have like ten caskets on display
One for you, the other nine for everything you're takin' to the grave
You don't play, you don't, you don't, you don't, you
You don't play no games
There's three things I learned from love for free
Only thing really worth chasin' is a dream
People don't know we play roles on screen
Messy, started gettin' trendy, gotta keep it clean
You know I keep it clean
Clean as I can
All weapons formed against me gotta jam
Brought you 'round the dawgs, treat you like the fam'
Shoulda been a wham, bam, thank you ma'am
Know you got my confidence on sale
Case you wanna feel better 'bout yourself





You were lost until me
You were lost until me

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Drake & 21 Savage's song Hours In Silence tells a story of a romantic relationship that seems to be on shaky ground. The first verse (Drake) is a seduction of sorts. He suggests that the girl leave her phone and come to his place where they can enjoy good conversation, red wine, and sex. He implies that he can erase thoughts of her current lover from her mind. The second verse (21 Savage) acknowledges that he has made a lot of mistakes in the relationship, but he takes responsibility and accepts blame. He admits that he has been spending a lot of money on her and even drains his bank account just to make her happy. He also admits that he has some insecurities and low self-confidence. However, he feels like the girl was lost without him, and he wants to be the one for her.


The chorus is both rapped and sung, which makes it catchy and memorable. The repetition of the words "Turn my bitch up" creates a hypnotic effect, and the melody is simple yet effective. The "Savage love" line in the chorus is intriguing and suggests that the girl is the object of affection for both Drake and 21 Savage. Overall, the song is a blend of seduction, regret, and hope. It paints a picture of a flawed relationship that may or may not survive.

I gotta stop goin' Lenci', Rollie, first week
I need to stop buying high-end fashion and expensive watches


You're misreadin' me, I'm too geeked, tryna turn you up
You don't understand my intentions because I'm too preoccupied with impressing you


You were lost until me
You experienced a sense of aimlessness until we met


I didn't get no finder's fee
I didn't receive any reward for finding you


You're actin' like a bride-to-be
You're behaving as if you're already engaged


Behind closed doors, slimin' me
When we're alone, you manipulate and control me


Friends are all advisin' me
My friends are all giving me advice


Sayin' I could die tryna turn you up
They're warning me that I may get hurt by trying to impress you


There's three sides to this story, girl
There are multiple perspectives in this situation


The one you subtweet
The one you indirectly criticize on social media


The one your group chat gets to read
The one your friends discuss behind your back


The one you come and tell to me
The one you confide in me


I understand it finally
I finally comprehend the complexity of the situation


I'm tryna give you highs and you're plannin' our goodbyes
I'm trying to provide positive experiences while you're thinking about ending our relationship


But I turn you up
But I make you feel good


It's my fault
I take responsibility


Burnin' cash like it's lit on fire
Spending money extravagantly


Penthouse and some new attire
Luxurious apartment and expensive new clothes


I fulfilled all of your desires
I satisfied all your wants and needs


You don't work, but you act retired
You don't have a job, but you act as if you're retired


'Cause you know that you're mine and it's my fault
Because you know you belong to me and I take responsibility for that


For once I take accountability
For once, I admit my mistakes


It's my fault that you got superpowers on your knees
I'm to blame for your ability to manipulate and control me with sexual acts


It's my fault for once, don't keep you grounded on your feet
I'm responsible for not supporting and empowering you emotionally


It's my fault for once, I drain accounts to make you love me
I'm at fault for using my financial resources to make you love me


It's my fault for once, it's one-sided loyalty
My loyalty to you is one-sided and not reciprocated


My fault for once, I'm payin' lawyer fees
I'm at fault for having to pay legal fees


Doin' things just to set you free, see you breathe
I'm doing things to give you freedom and allow you to breathe


It's my fault for once, I got the Wagon, G
I take responsibility for having an expensive car


Got you ridin' 'round with niggas that are nothin' like me
I'm to blame for you spending time with people who are different from me


It's my fault for once, that's how you make it seem
You make it seem like everything is my fault


My confidence is super low
I have very little self-confidence


Baby M, you know I got a heart of gold
You know I have a kind and caring heart


You pawned that shit and hit the road, baby
You betrayed my trust and left without warning


For goodness sakes, at this rate
At the pace things are going


Your funeral is finna have like ten caskets on display
Your actions may lead to many negative consequences


One for you, the other nine for everything you're takin' to the grave
One casket for you and nine for all the things you've done wrong


You don't play, you don't, you don't, you don't, you
You don't mess around, you're serious


You don't play no games
You don't engage in any kind of manipulation or deceit


There's three things I learned from love for free
I've learned three lessons about love without having to pay for them


Only thing really worth chasin' is a dream
The only thing truly worth pursuing is a dream


People don't know we play roles on screen
People are unaware of the facades we put on in public


Messy, started gettin' trendy, gotta keep it clean
Our relationship is becoming chaotic and gaining attention, so we need to maintain appearances


You know I keep it clean
You know I maintain a pristine image


Clean as I can
As clean as possible


All weapons formed against me gotta jam
Any harm or negativity directed towards me will be ineffective


Brought you 'round the dawgs, treat you like the fam'
I introduced you to my close friends and treated you like family


Shoulda been a wham, bam, thank you ma'am
Our relationship should have been a quick, temporary encounter


Know you got my confidence on sale
You have the power to manipulate my self-assurance


Case you wanna feel better 'bout yourself
In case you want to boost your own ego


You were lost until me
You felt lost until you found me
