RAYE – Distraction lyrics

Written in my phone, I see your name
It must’ve been a few long weeks since I heard from you
I’ve been doing fine, thanks
Maybe I won’t then, maybe I won’t then
[Pre-Chorus]
Thing is I’m weak when I’ve been rolling
I might just give up and let your call in
I would be the girl to lose this one, I would be the girl to lose this one
Seeing as you know I’m the baddest loser
And if I wanna win, I’ve got to lose her
I won’t be the girl to lose this one, so I begin to find a distraction, a distraction
[Chorus]
I just need to find something, a way to stop me wondering
I just need to find something, a way to stop me wondering about you
[Verse 2]
East London, you’re an East London boy
You had me strung up like a puppet toy
Oh shit, wait, I’mma stop talking
I’mma stop thinking ’bout you, where is my distraction? [Verse 1]
South London, I’m a South London girl
I wonder what I should get a tattoo of
I know that my momma would kill me
So maybe I won’t then, maybe I won’t then
Where is my distraction? Shopping, I’mma buy a paintbrush
Grab a couple colours that carry half the weight of everything I’m feeling
So I could try to pretend
I’m really artistic and I don’t really miss this
[Pre-Chorus]
Thing is I’m weak when I’ve been rolling
I might just give up and let your call in
I would be the girl to lose this one, I would be the girl to lose this one
Seeing as you know I’m the baddest loser
And if I wanna win, I’ve got to lose her
I won’t be the girl to lose this one, so I begin to find the distraction
The distraction, the distraction, the distraction
[Chorus]
I just need to find something, a way to stop me wondering
I just need to find something, a way to stop me wondering about you
[Verse 3]
North London, I’m in North London now
Decided, you don’t get a home and now
If you like, you can always call me phone
Hear the dialling tone and then the answer phone
I’ll be fine if I ignore the sound, when you call to see if I’m around
The moment that you think that you have won
I will have found the perfect distraction
