SONGS

Gimme - BANKS




The Experience: Gimme, gimme what I want, what I deserve... Does wanting mean deserving?  

Music video: Still waiting.

The Meaning of Gimme: In BANKS own words, "'Gimme' is a song about getting what you want. It’s about knowing what you deserve, saying it out loud, and demanding it with no apologies. I’m ready to release this into the world and begin a new chapter." BANKS hasn't been afraid to explore the dark side of insecurity and despair with songs like Fuck With Myself. Gimme showcases a new sense of security... but doesn't tell us where it comes from. She wants love. She demands it. But why does she deserve it? Why do we deserve anything? That's the real question. Unfortunately, Gimme shies away from it. You can call me that b-tch definitely has an edge to it, but is also oh so low on content.

Ask yourself: Where do you find your worth? What do you base your self-confidence on?

LYRICS:


Woah, gimme, yeah-eah-eah
Gimme, yeah-eah-eah, gimme, yeah-eah-eah
Woah, gimme, yeah-eah-eah
Gimme, yeah-eah-eah, gimme, yeah-eah-eah

At the rock bottom baby crawl, crawl
I let you lick it from the ground, ground
'Cause I've been drippin' for your love, love (Woah, woah)
You can call me that b-tch (Woah, woah, oh, oh)
It's all signed
All I can think about is you're mine
You and me in my bed at midnight (Woah, woah)
And you can call me that b-tch (Woah, woah, oh, oh)

We can be over, over
And you can write if you know her, know her
Or we can ride and be over
Get it, say it, I'm your type
I know you been all this time
So get it right
To get around me

Gimme, gimme, what I want, what I deserve
Gimme, gimme it
Gimme, gimme, what I want, what I deserve
Gimme, gimme it

Pick up the phone, come on, let's talk all about
That thing you do, the way you move hell on my mouth
Let's get away, just me and you sometime (Woah, woah, woah, woah)
You can call me that b-tch (Woah, woah, woah, woah)
Oh, you're mine to take
I wanna hear the sounds that you'll make
Drivin' me crazy with the way you whine (Woah, woah, woah, woah)
And you can call me that b-tch

We can be over, over
And you can write if you know her, know her
Or we can ride and be over
Get it, say it, I'm your type
I know you been all this time
So get it right
To get around me

Gimme, gimme, what I want, what I deserve
Gimme, gimme it
Gimme, gimme, what I want, what I deserve
Gimme, gimme it
Gimme, gimme, what I want, what I deserve
Gimme, gimme it
Gimme, gimme, what I want, what I deserve
Gimme, gimme it

Got my attention on the prize
Was always something that I want though
And I can see it in your eyes, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme though
Yeah, yeah, gimme, gimme it

Gimme, gimme, what I want, what I deserve
Gimme, gimme it (Give me it, give me it)
Gimme, gimme, what I want, what I deserve
Gimme, gimme it (Give me it, give me it)
Gimme, gimme, what I want, what I deserve
Gimme, gimme it (Give me it, give me it)
Gimme, gimme, what I want, what I deserve
Gimme, gimme it

Woah, gimme, yeah-eah-eah
Gimme, yeah-eah-eah, gimme, yeah-eah-eah
