[RAYE - Ice Cream Man. lyrics]

So, this producer hit me up on the DM
He told me, "Hey
I really like what you are doing"
He told me, "Come 'round to the studio
Let's cook it" he told me
 "Come to catch a vibe and make some music"
But when I got there
Should've heard what he was saying
Tryna touch me, tryna fuck me
I'm not playing
I should have left that place as
Soon as I walked in it
How Goddamn dare you do that to me, really?

Coming like the ice cream man
Till I felt his ice-cold hands
And how I pay the pricе now, damn
Goddamn, no, what the? Goddamn
Everything you did, it left mе in a ruin
And no, I didn't say a word
I guess that proves it i'm a woman, oh yes

'Cause, I'm a woman
I'm a very fucking brave, strong woman
And I'll be damned if I let a man ruin
How I walk, how I talk, how I do it
Man, I've been broken for a moment
I've been through it, no
It's even harder to be brave alone
I was a girl, now I'm grown, I'm a woman
A very fucking strong woman

And I was seven
Was twenty one, was seventeen and was eleven
It took a while to understand
What my consent means if I was ruthless
They'd be in the penitentiary
But all the stress of being
Honest wouldn't help me i pushed it down
But it was livin' in me rent-free
And then I fell into some
Things that were unhealthy
A place where no one heard me
Asking them to help me (Help me, help me)

Coming like the ice cream man
Till I felt his ice-cold hands
And how I pay the price now, damn goddamn
Everything you did, it left me in a ruin
And no, I didn't say a word
I guess that proves it i'm a woman

'Cause, I'm a woman
I'm a very fucking brave, strong woman
And I'll be damned if I let a man ruin
How I walk, how I talk, how I do it
Man, I've been broken for a moment
I've been through it, no
It's even harder to be brave alone
I was a girl, now I'm grown, I'm a woman
A very fucking strong woman, mmm

I wish I could say how I feel, how I felt
And explain why I'm silently blaming myself
'Cause, I put on these faces
Pretending I'm fine
Then I go to the bathroom and
I press rewind in my head
Always going round and round in my head
Your fingerprints stuck a stain on my skin
You made me frame myself for your sin
You pathetic, dead excuse of a man

Ooh, ooh i'm a brave, strong woman
Oh, yeah, yeah, oh, oh, oh
And I'll be damned if I let a men ruin, oh
I'm a very fucking brave, strong woman, yeah
