You know I got so much to say / I try to hide it in my face / And it don't work, you see through - In this song, Doja Cat reveals she's got a case of the wandering eye. She's got a boyfriend, but she's looking for something more with someone else.

Don't believe in fairytales, but we got our fantasies - Doja admits she and her lover don't fall for make-believe, but they let their imaginations run away with them.

And I know your history (Hey), met him before your peak (Hey) - Here, The Weeknd suggests Doja met her boyfriend before her rise to superstardom.

He's so connected to that woman that you used to be - The Weeknd believes Doja's current boyfriend is attached to the way Doja used to be, and isn't allowing her to grow into the person she's evolving into today.

[Pre-Chorus: Doja Cat]
I got a man but, I want you
I got a man but, I want you
And it's just nerves, it's just d**k
Making me think 'bout someone new
You know I got so much to say
I try to hide it in my face
And it don't work, you see through
That I just want to get with you

[Chorus: Doja Cat]
And you're right
You right, I got my guy
But I, I can't help it, I want you
Said, you right, I got my guy
But I, I can't help it, I want you

[Verse 1: Doja Cat]
I can't stop and look the other way
'Cause I know it could be, babe, and you never feel the same
You'd be thinkin' 'bout it every day
Don't believe in fairytales, but we got our fantasies
And it's me and you, no she
Tryna be all through your sheets
Have you all on top of me
Actin' like it's not that deep
Boy, you can take it off of me
Tell me what it's 'bout to be
Really feel it's bound to bе
I can't tell no one, but they all know

[Pre-Chorus: Doja Cat]
I got a man but, I want you
I got a man but, I want you
And it's just nеrves, it's just dick
Making me think 'bout someone new
You know I got so much to say
I try to hide it in my face
And it don't work, you see through
That I just want to get with you

[Chorus: Doja Cat]
And you're right
You right, I got my guy
But I, I can't help it, I want you
Said, you right, I got my guy
But I, I can't help it, I want you

[Verse 2: The Weeknd]
Girl, I want you like you want me too
I feel that energy (Oh, yeah) when you're on top of me (Oh, yeah)
I know your man, he ain't controllin' you
But you still hesitate (Oh) 'cause you choose loyalty (Oh, yeah)
And I know your history (Hey), met him before your peak (Hey)
He's so connected to that woman that you used to be
But-but-but the sex what clogged your memory
A couple strokes, I'll put it in, then you'll belong to me

[Pre-Chorus: Doja Cat & The Weeknd]
I got a man but, I want you
I got a man but, I want you (Yeah)
And it's just nerves, it's just d**k
Making me think 'bout someone new
You know I got so much to say
I try to hide it in my face
And it don't work, you see through
That I just want to get with you (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

[Chorus: Doja Cat]
And you're right (Right)
You right, I got my guy (I got my—)
But I, I can't help it, I want you
Said, you right (Yeah), I got my guy (Yeah)
But I (Yeah), I can't help it, I want you
