Feeling You
Omar Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ooh ooh ooh, yeah yeah, ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh, yeah yeah, ooh ooh ooh, ooh

First of all
I don't mean no disrespect
So you can check me if I'm wrong
In the past you told me no
But nowadays a yes is strong
I can't figure it out
I just know that I think about you more
Than anyone I've met before

So hear me out
I know we're friends (I know we're friends)
If that's all you want (if that's all you want), that's all I'll give (that's all I'll give)
But I can't walk around like you
Don't got my head in the ceiling
Guess I'm revealing

I still got feelings for you (yeah yeah) (ooh), feelings for you
I still got feelings for you (yeah yeah)
Head in the ceiling
Guess I'm revealing
I still got feelings for

Second of all (yeah yeah)
I feel like you threw some hints
At me back when I was involved (back when I was involved)
Telling me what I deserved
And picking up every call
Like, you don't wanna miss this (you don't wanna miss)
I Know we're in a crazy position
'Cause we both know something is missing
So hear me out (hear me out)
I know we're fresh (I know we're fresh)
But who gone fill my shoes
When it comes to loving you
'Cause I can't walk around like I
Don't got my head in the ceiling
Guess I'm revealing

I still got feelings for you (yeah yeah)
And I try to deny my feelings for you (yeah yeah)
But baby I still got feelings for you (yeah yeah)
You got my head, you got my head (head in the ceiling)
Guess I'm revealing (I can't fight it no more)
I still got feelings for you

Feelings I can't put aside, I can't put aside
Oh no

If you want me baby won't you say yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah, all you gotta do is say
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah (all you gotta do is)
Say you want me to girl (yeah, yeah)



I'll say yeah, (yeah, yeah)
'Cause I've got (feelings for you)
