Notice Me
SZA Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You stay on mine, I can't regret no time spent with you
And I still wonder if you notice me, yes
Out of my line if I box with you
Out of my line if I check your line when you're not around
Out of my lane if I get beside myself, I can't rock with you
Can't decide right now, either way I'm bustin' through tonight with you

Top down in the C3 speedin' way to you
Yes sir, when you see me toot that thing like
All of this and more when you 'bout me
All of this and joy will surround you

Long as you got me, I don't wanna be your girlfriend
I'm just tryna be your person
I don't need to be your girl, uh
Cool with just being your person, uh
Already tried to be your girl
We can't even speak, but you stay on my mind
I can't regret no time spent with you
And I still wonder if you notice me, yes

If I had a dime or two
For that cheap shit you be spittin', I'd provide the mood
That's cool, but you be jockin' me for all my jewels, damn
Fan nigga, hit it then lost your mind, hmm, I understand, man
Said all of this and more
Finna take me a ride to the shore now
Finna sign me some lines, need insurance
I can't lack, niggas can't hang, I just get more real, oh

I don't wanna be your girlfriend
I'm just tryna be your person
I don't need to be your girl, uh
Cool with just being your person, uh
Already tried to be your girl
I won't get the dick that I deserve, yeah, yeah
Try to flip on me, I hit you where it hurts, yeah, yeah
Try to wife you but you'd rather be a ho', yeah
So I spit this shit to let these niggas know, yeah, yeah (yeah-yeah-yeah)

I told you you don't need no girl, uh
Way you move gon' go get you hurt, I swear




Bet you don't even miss your girl
We can't even speak

Overall Meaning

"Notice Me" is a song by American singer SZA that explores the pain and confusion that comes with having feelings for someone who may not reciprocate those same feelings. SZA starts the song by discussing how this person is constantly on her mind, and how she can never regret the time spent with them. However, she wonders if the other person feels the same way about her. She goes on to say that she knows she needs to stay in her lane and not let her feelings for this person go too far to the point of getting too attached. The chorus expresses her desire to not be the other person's girlfriend, but rather just be their person, which suggests a level of intimacy that may not necessarily be romantic.


The second verse reveals more of SZA's frustrations with this person. She thinks that they are only interested in her because of what she can provide, but she also understands their point of view. She knows they may only be around for the fun and the jewels, but she still wants to spend this time together. However, she admits that she can't lack and needs to keep things real. The third verse is particularly intense, with SZA saying that she knows she won't get the dick she deserves and that this person is more interested in being a ho' than being with her. The way she delivers these lines is powerful and raw, and she seems to be putting her feelings out there in a way that is both vulnerable and bold.

Who is SZA? To the blind, she is light. To the hungry, she is bread. To the sick, she is the cure. To the lonely, she is company. To the sad, she is joy. To the prisoner, she is freedom. To the poor, she is treasure. To me, she is everything.

@lordofallnaan5939

She ain't King Jesus fam, a pretty lady, and tremendous talented artist and songwriter. I'm sure she's more than just that, especially for the folks close to her. God bless her tho🙏🏾

@jordanjohnson9866

Nah. Not “To the blind, she is light.” /
