On Kehlani’s Beats1 Radio Show, Sunday Gems, she discusses that this song is about a period in a relationship when you are feeling insecure and ask for what you need, but when you get that, you feel like it’s only because you asked.
She stated the title RPG means “role playing game,” which was suggested by friend and artist @JeanDeaux.
Don’t you think that we’re too old to play your game?
And we ain’t go through all of this to stay the same
But you can pick a player just so I can get my way (Way, way)
And I think you do this ’cause you realise I won’t wait (Wait, wait)
I see right through every look in your eyes
I hear right through every fairytale lie
Won’t say a word, but the stories you write
