    Lyrics

    [Verse 1: Nas]
    The problem's gettin' worse, a modern 1970, Johannesburg
    Man, it hurts to see a cop kill a black man alert
    News flash, police shoot blacks, distort facts
    Quick attack, unarmed men, murder them
    It's captured on cellphone video and they still let 'em go
    When will they stop killin' 'em? Askin' why is they killin' for?
    White man with a gun apprehended, he still alive
    Black man with a gun, he has no chance to survive
    They gon' shoot him dead soon as they see the brown of his eyes
    And they ask me, "Why you ain't smilin' Nas?"
    Cause I have a son and I die inside when I gotta tell him what was told to me
    Can't play with your water gun son 'cause the police see
    A seven years old as a threat
    They think it's right to kill a seven years old on sight 'cause he ain't white
    So baby if I'm actin' uptight
    When our conversation is weak, it ain't you
    It's just it ain't that deep

    [Hook 1: Robin Thicke]
    We could be everything, everything that we ever needed
    Everything that we ever wanted to be, we could still be
    It ain't that deep, it ain't that deep
    (Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
    (Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
    [Verse 2: Robin Thicke]
    Paradise, sacrifice, what do you want from me?
    Pay the price, more than twice, what do you want from me?
    When I'm wrong and you're right, what do you want from me?
    What do you want from me?

    [Pre-Hook: Robin Thicke]
    In your eyes, I don't wanna see the pain you're holdin'
    If you look in my mind, I don't wanna spend a lifetime for it
    It's alright, I don't want to play this over
    Living in a world I can't explain

    [Hook 2: Robin Thicke]
    It ain't that deep, we ain't gotta lose sleep baby
    We could be everything, everything that we ever needed
    Everything that we ever wanted to be, we could still be
    It ain't that deep, it ain't that deep
    That, that, that, that, it ain't that deep
    That, that, that, that, it ain't that...
    (Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

    [Verse 3: Robin Thicke]
    Tell the truth, was it you? What do you want from me?
    Is it you? Are we fools? What do you want from me?
    I was in love with you, what do you want from me?
    What do you want from me?

    [Bridge: Robin Thicke]
    In your eyes, I don't wanna stop the fire burnin'
    If you look in my mind, I don't wanna see your wheels keep turnin'
    It's alright, I don't want to play this over
    When I know that you're the one for me
    It ain't that deep, it ain't that deep, deep, deep, deep
    It ain't that, that, that...

    [Verse 4: Nas]
    Dismissin' got you livin' in your own prison
    You need to leave that alone
    Before you sittin' in an old folk's home alone with no visits
    So exquisite but mess it up when you're tone's risen
    And any day when you don't get your way
    Gettin' mad at everything I say
    And you don't think it's an emergency
    A toupee wearin' liar's tryna run the U.S.A
    You makin' our lives harder, you're like the argument queen
    There's women out here going hard doing positive things
    Slam dunkin' in games, directing movies like Selma
    World's startin' to change and you actin' the same
    'Cause you don't even see what I see in you
    Next female president could even be you
    Bringing' kids in the world that we gotta teach
    Just give me good sex and give me peace

    [Outro: Robin Thicke (Nas)]
    It ain't that deep, it ain't that deep
    (Nah shawty)
    We could be everything, everything that we ever needed
    Everything that we ever wanted to be, we could still be
    It ain't that, that...
