Jay Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I said, I don't know where we was going
How you tell me that you love me when you can't even show it
And my heart been through the ringer, I don't feel no emotion
And why your best friend acting tough and tryna cause a commotion
My eyes is full of tears look like I'm fresh out the ocean
And why you steady kissing ass girl I don't give no promotions
Lil bitch, I don't give no promotions
I'm stepping in the game already knew I was chosen
I'm balling so hard ah niggas feel like DeRozan
But fuck that I feel like Jordan and shit
I came with two threes on my feet feel like I'm Jordan and shit
Girl why you hopping out your body you ain't royal and shit
I should of knew that
You did that shit to hurt me
I gave you my all when you know you ain't deserve me
If I didn't have money girl I know you would of curved me
I wish you would of warned me
This love shit isn't for me
I'm better off alone do what I want like Kyrie Irving
Bitches act like bee's since I got LV on my buckle
You blowing up his top leave it to me I'll pop his bubble
I working my hardest this money it get doubled




I'm scratching and clawing Reason why blood on my knuckles
Reason why blood on my knuckles

Overall Meaning

Jay's "Emotions" is a song that highlights a relationship that is ridden with complications and misunderstandings. The song begins with Jay questioning the direction of the relationship, stating that he does not know where they were going. He then criticizes his partner for not showing him love even when she says she loves him. This leads to his emotional detachment, where he admits that his heart has been through the ringer, and he feels no emotion. He then speaks about his partner's best friend, who is causing trouble for no apparent reason.


Jay's emotions are evident in the lyrics, 'My eyes are full of tears look like I'm fresh out the ocean.' He accuses his partner of kissing ass and not offering him any promotions. He is not keen on being manipulated and is quick to call out his partner's friend for acting tough. He sees himself as a chosen one who has been given the opportunity to step into the game and bring his A-game. He is so confident in his ability that he likens himself to DeRozan and Jordan, implying that he is almost unbeatable.


However, the relationship hits a snag, and he feels hurt by his partner's actions. He gave everything he had to the relationship, even when he knew he did not deserve it. If it were not for his money, his partner would have left him. He admits that love is not for him and that he is better off alone like Kyrie Irving, who famously requested a trade from Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017. While he is working hard to make a better life for himself, he is not afraid to confront his partner's friends if they try to cause trouble.


Overall, Jay's "Emotions" is a highly emotive song. It portrays a complicated relationship that is quickly spiraling out of control. Jay is not afraid to express his emotions and stands up for himself, even in difficult situations.
