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'

I met this girl late December last year, at a friends party, I thought she was gorgeous but I thought to myself “nah, with her looking like that she probably has a boyfriend or is talking to someone right now, so I didn’t really delude myself with thoughts of dating her for a while. After we spoke a lil bit I find out she’s single and we get on really well, but I’m still telling myself that she wouldn’t be interested.

Until the next day, when she follows me on all social media, starts responding to my stories and stuff, and from there, the heartbreak was inevitable.

We talk a lot over quarantine, we even spoke about how much we love frank ocean and this song, it was around this time that I got diagnosed with depression. Not “14 year old girl” depression, actual clinical depression, I let a few people know including her, she tells me she’d always be there for me, and that she loved talking to me. I was convinced at this point that she felt the same way, cos at this point I fell for her.

I didn’t let her know how I felt for a while, because I always had that doubt in my mind. that she only saw me as a friend and nothing more, but man, I was honestly preferring just talking to her every day and not knowing, than risk being rejected, it’s dumb as fuck looking back at it, I realise now.

Then, she starts to leave me on delivered for hours on end, starts getting blunt, and our conversations felt more and more awkward and forced, deep down I knew what was happening, but I kept fooling myself over and over again. She had full control of my mental well-being at this point, something I told myself I would NEVER let happen.

I eventually saw her again in person a few months ago, after not seeing her for almost half a year because of quarantine, she runs up to me and hugs me, tells me that she loved seeing me again and asked how I’m feeling with the whole depression thing. You know when you can tell by the way a girl acts she only sees you as a friend? It’s the small things, but you notice them. Again i tell myself that she’s gotta be interested, right? Why would she say all those things to me if she only saw me as a friend?

We keep on talking after that, on and off, until one day I decide to tell her how I feel, I was about to move away to university so I had to tell her before I left, just to close the book, whatever the outcome, I had to know. She tells me that she was surprised I liked her and had no idea, and that she thought I was good looking, but she didn’t have a crush on me, and that she was talking seriously to someone else.

I told her no hard feelings and that everything was cool between us, but fuck, that was probably one of the worst times mentally I’ve ever had in my life. My doubt was right all along, and I tricked myself into thinking that we were gonna be something.

It’s now November, I’m at university, she’s back home, she still responds to some of my stories now and again but it just brings me misery.
She has a boyfriend now, I met him and he’s actually a good dude, and I’m happy for both of them, but I can’t help but think what could’ve been. I had never felt this way about anyone before.

I still think about her sometimes, especially when I listen to this song, and how much we both love frank. But every goddamn time I see a post from her or hear her name or even sees something that reminds me of her, I’m brought right down. I have no hatred toward her, she’s a gem, but man.

That girl fucking broke me. you don’t have to be in a relationship with someone for them to have that impact on you.

Lyrics Frank Ocean - Ivy
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

And we started from nothin'

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

Everytime I hear this song I start to cry bc it reminds me of my first real love. I doubt anybody is ever going to read it, it is a long ass story, but I don't really have anyone to talk about with these things. I have friends, it is just I don't feel comfortable opening up about it in real life.

I am 18 now moved out to study but when I was 15 I fell in love for the first time. The girl I fell in love with( I am german) was a girl at a neighbour highschool, the thing was she was raised in a traditional turkish muslim family. This community is one of the closest related I have ever seen and they are really giving people from their own community a bad time of they do not obey the rules of Islam.

I met her in a crossover project between our highschools and we practically started meeting everyday. At first we were pretending to ourselves we wanted to continue working on this project. But I just felt right for both of us, it was a sense of mutual understandment and connection. We could talk about basically everything. Honestly dunno what it was about her, before I met her I never had a similar experience. I just felt crazily happy being around her, some warm feeling I cannot describe in words. So we continued hanging out togheter while I pretended to be her "learning partner" bc of her traditional mother. She was a formidable student so we always tended to use the time otherwise, thus we used to roam doing the stuff lovers do, sometimes just going for a walk. It was the first time none of the rumours would have bothered in any fashion, it was just me and her against the world and our narrow-minded social environments. Nowadays I can somehow feel grateful as well bc it was probably the happiest time of my life.

One day, I remember it like it was just yesterday, this stuff between us was almost going for a year,there was kind of a key experience. It was the 7.7.2018, shit I've got it burned in my mind like it was yesterday, we climbed over the fence of our local swimming facility just strolling around like kids. We had certainly become somewhat more than just friends, but since I did not want to insult her family I had never dared tokisse or even touch her. Anyways, after we went swimming, it was a tropical night and while laying in the grass with her, she then came closer and began to kiss me.

It was probably the most amazing feeling ever but even tough our bodies were craving for each other I could eventually stop before we had any inappropiate stuff going down. I suppose in my head I already knew her father would probably expell her from her family. So after that there was only two weeks left until summer break and she started to behave differrently. At first, it just did not feel as natural as it used to feel, she slowly tried to avoid me. After a while, I figured out she confessed everything to her sister, who then went on to explain me that I would destroy her life if I would continue "dating" her. I insisted on doing anything for her, I would even turn muslim against my catholics parents will but her sister told me the family, especially the father would accept nothing but a turkish man. Eventually her sister ordered her to fly to Turkey in summer break for 4 straight weeks so she could not make any stupidities.
Her mother was extremly strict but in the first week after summer break she made it out home on midnight and dude how wrong I was, I even prepared a romantic dinner. She told me that feels like loving me but that she had to make a decision between me and her family. Obviously I don't really stand a chance against her entire family.
I know this sounds like some studip romeo and juliet shit but this was the harsh reality. She also said that she would go on to another highschool in the neighbour city bc I assumed, at least I hoped she would break down seeing me everyday. She told her girls that she did not feel accepted which must be straight up bs because she was regularly hanging with half of the girls at her class. If there had been problems she would have told me for sure.

And that was it. I tried to talk to her over and over again, but she just blocked all my attempts away. I texted her probably more times than I can remember, but she blocked me on every platform. At the end of the day, I had to accept her decision. It just wasn't meant to be man. Life's unfair

Not sure if anyone is gonna feel the same, or even see this. But I’m gonna vent to you dudes just because I know a lot of people listening to this are gonna be going through some shit.

For the last year or so I’ve been really struggling with mental health and can’t get an ex called Rebekah out of my head. I’m 24 now, we got together when I was 16 and we were together for around 2 years.

I was a young dumb kid and didn’t treat her amazingly. I never abused her or physically slept with anyone else or anything, but I’d talk to other girls and just generally disrespect her. For the last year or so I’ve been thinking about her a lot.

I’m at a stage in my life now where I would like to meet someone serious but deep down she is the only person I want to be with. I wish I could have met her a few years later and I’d have hopefully realised what I had. She was literally perfect, she was smart, beautiful, kind. And I treated her badly and then let her go.

I’ve been with other people since and they don’t even come close to the girl she was. I actually fully hate myself for how I threw her away and I just wish I could tell her how I feel.

I really tried hard not to think about her for quite a few years. I was young and used to be in shape and pretty good looking, so I used to talk to lots of girls and spend time with them. But really it was just burying how I truly felt about this girl. I honestly feel so alone, because I don’t think anyone truly realises how I feel about her. I’ve tried talking to friends about it but they don’t really understand.

She’s in a pretty long term relationship now and she seems happy which is cool, but deep down a part of me wishes that it was me she was with. But I had my chance and I blew it.

Hope all of you Kings hopefully take this as a bit of inspiration and realise that you aren’t alone. I think about her every day and cry regularly in private. It doesn’t make me less of a man. It makes me human. If you’ve made it this far. Thank you for hearing me out ❤️

I dated this girl for almost 3 years and one day I got a DM of a picture of her kissing someone else I told her about it and she said she was cheating on me for about 5 weeks I mourned for 3½ Weeks because of our 3 year relationship yet she got over me in 2 days... But here's the worst part

Me and her saw each other again 2 days ago and she kinda forced herself on me that next morning I asked what we were she didn't respond though after 3 days she said "we are nothing" And today she is relying on me to comfort her because she thinks her boyfriend is cheating

I simply said "now you know how it feels you bitch" And blocked her insta






P.s I contacted her boyfriend told him the truth about her and he broke up with her and she's crying saying nobody could love us meanwhile I'm just playing Call of duty with my new best friend

Frank Ocean's songs makes me not want to fall in love but also fall in love at the same time

Elise Marie

some people are just worth being hurt for

Joe Hughes

@Kae saysstfu you'll get there it all starts with believing in something. If somethings there it will grow if not it'll deteriorate. Don't go looking to get hurt cos you'll get exactly that. It'll also mess with your mental state so try stay on the right side of your own life and maybe good things could then come. It's life you live and learn

Kae saysstfu
