Curfew - Token

The Experience: Anything to boost my ego is my drug... When you're so lonely that you'll do anything, promise anything, hurt anyone to feel connected...
The Vibe: Sad.
The Topic: Loneliness.
The Value: Love.
The Tension:  Smart enough to know this sh-t might crush her (I can hurt her by using her) VS. Weak enough to keep her as my crutch I always try to make her fall in love (But not strong enough to pass up what she offers).

Music video: Token won her heart. Her dad can't stop it. Car crashes can't stop it. Responsibilities like school can't stop it. She loves him. But as he finally walks off with her on his arm... he flashes back to every single girl he's managed to seduce. And the new sad purple jacket, the suddenly black background perfectly match the despairing confession: Smart enough to know this sh-t might crush weak enough to keep her as my crutch, I always try to make her fall in love even when I know she ain't the one (Eighteen) anything to boost my ego is my drug. He's using them all and that knowledge hurts.

The Meaning of Curfew: Token knows he can break any curfew. The problem is those curfews are there to protect her from his brokenness. He's needy for the affirmation, the attention, and the love: all I need is the girls who need me He can make them love him: I always try to make her fall in love. But he's not worthy of them - he's using them: I know she ain't the one and know this sh-t might crush her weak enough to keep her as my crutch. If she could only trust her dad - still lyin' to her dad to see me - and keep that curfew she would be so much safer. That's a toxic situation. But what makes it so much harder to handle is the final sad and despairing confession - Token understands all of that, and he can't make himself stop.

Ask yourself: What makes you capable of truly loving? Can someone be too broken to love?

LYRICS:


Oh my God, Ronny
Yeah, yeah

My new girl is 18, still lyin' to her dad to see me (Yeah)
12:30 curfew we'll be back believe me (Yeah)
You can measure how I'm feeling just by how she treat me
So all I need is the girls who need me (Do-do-do-do, yeah!)

All I need is a woman who
Make a kid feel like you bulletproof (Yeah)
Get my mind off whatever my ex put me through (Aha)
She say I'm full of myself, she want me full of me too (Yeah)
They gave the kid a foreign b-tch, you thought my ego wouldn't boost (Let's go)
Hold up unless I'm packed, uh (Yeah)
My girl said I'm acting off (Yeah)
Told her I need time alone (Yeah)
She know that ain't lasting long (Yeah)
I got me a new one, thicko with a thin core
Issues that are premature, I need girls who need me more (She need me more)
I use them as my crutch, sh-t my mom knew it
But when you get her a house you bring who you want to it (Bring in who I want!)
Mamma want me to be smart, I ain't no college student (No!)
My b-tch is (Yeah!)

My new girl is 18, still lyin' to her dad to see me (Yeah)
12:30 curfew we'll be back believe me (Yeah)
You can measure how I'm feeling just by how she treat me
So all I need is the girls who need me (Do-do-do-do, yeah!)
My new girl is 18, still lyin' to her dad to see me (Yeah)
12:30 curfew we'll be back believe me (Yeah)
You can measure how I'm feeling just by how she treat me
So all I need is the girls who need me

She think I'm rich 'cause my passport full and my dashboard wooden (Yeah)
Year in college actin' like you grown women (Aha)
Girl come give me action (Yeah!)
Young dumb passion (Yeah!)
Remind me of the youth I gave up for the rap sh-t (Oh!)
Know you're lucky (Yeah)
You should know you're lucky (Yeah)
Throw it to me, catch the feelings but don't show them to me (Yeah!)
I'm the-I'm the boy, got a void, I think you could fill
Hate what music did to me, but sh-t I love the music still
Ego was my downfall (Aha)
But it runs my business (True)
Pick your poison, I'd be broke if I was humble with it (Yeah, yeah, yeah!)
21 and gifted with a strong mind
Fame, cash, long rides, flights, girls, more pride

My new-my new girl is 18, still lyin' to her dad to see me (Yeah)
12:30 curfew we'll be back believe me (Yeah)
You can measure how I'm feeling just by how she treat me
So all I need is the girls who need me (Do-do-do, yeah!)
My new girl is 18, still lyin' to her dad to see me (Yeah)

You can measure how I'm feeling just by how she treat me
So all I need is the girls who need me (Yeah!)

Smart enough to know this sh-t might crush her
Weak enough to keep her as my crutch
I always try to make her fall in love
Even when I know she ain't the one (Eighteen)
Anything to boost my ego is my drug
Remind me what it's like to be young
Faded but I gotta feel alive
Hold on to my only youth left (Eighteen, eighteen, eighteen, eighteen)
