I saw this guy, and I’m like woah
“She don’t know real love” but I want to know
I love you, but I’m a fool
“He made a proposal”
I rejected that too
He asked me why I kept saying no
You don’t know love, you just don’t know
He’s not lying, but I won’t relent
Go through the steps and make me content
Step One! We’re just friends, we talk a lot but not in depth
Step Two! We’re best buds, it’s not friend zone but we kick a lot
Step Three! Now you’re my crush
Step Four! I like you a lot
Step Five! I don’t know real love, but this is where it comes in oh god!
He kept saying, “Why five steps,”
I’m not that easy, he just wept,
Do you know my favorite color? Do you know my favorite fruit?
“Where where you born?” Do I play the flute?
All of these questions play a part,
Go through the steps and open up my heart,
After all that, he finally caught it
He took a step back, and tried to get with it.
We’ve gone through the steps, except for step five,
But I don’t really know if love is in our lives,
He told me told he loved me
We see eye to eye
But I still don’t know true love
So I told him Goodbye!
Behind The Music
"Sometimes people tell you ‘I love you,’ but that’s not true, we’re too young to know what love is. So that’s basically why we wrote the song.”
"I was like ‘I don’t know how to write a song.’ I’m terrible at writing, period. So, I was like ‘ahh…i don’t know how to write a song, this song is about to be terrible! But I think our song turned out pretty good!"
