ROSE TINTED CHEEKS *2016 rough draft*

Tyler, The Creator

2 years ago

a 2016 rough draft of this idea that would have made the album FLOWER BOY. lyrics below.
i never had the courage to tell you i adore you
i did it in a song i was too afraid to call you
im sorry i know im annoying
i just want your attention
ever since i saw you knew nothing was important
your gravity is too strong its fucking up my orbit
contact avoided by the time i record this
i just want you to listen
everytime i see you, you brighten up my day
you’re cashmere to my cotton and i wished you felt the same
more options in the alphabet i know ill be OK
no i wont
its them rose tinted cheeks
they black flag we AF
we BF as AF
but they wont get that
thats that 20 century women reference
you so hard to get like intricate metaphors
companies? i own four
but all i want is yours
hit the plex and catch a band or sushi spot i recommend
float around hitting wheelies leg or engine based it all depends
either one is cool to me
and you’re way too cool for me
ima freeze to death tryna keep up
thirsty i am i may need three cups
eye contact
speeding down the 5 in my newest ride
you was kinda high speakers mild high
track 10 track 10, dirtbike afternoons
as long as pale skin is near i didnt have to leave the room
switch gears
roamed around around fell in love
broke my leg and got stuck what the fuck
hit my head, wait, i wish you would fall in too i said
i wish you would fall in and snap them legs
cause ima be stuck here until im dead and gone
i remember when we first met
my eyes, like jeans too tight, i couldnt take em off you
you’re precious metal i was a magnet just looking
ive been searching for something
but didnt know what i was looking for
then you popped and it became so clear
like that water up north, so clear
im intimidated by your existence
flustered because of your presence
your absence leaves me in a state of confusion
i cant function, i cant explain it
im aware enough to know this is just a temporary pool of emotion
but since im here, i might as well drown
please dont save me

See all these comments about how this would fit with Igor perfectly without looking at how everything about this Cherry Bomb vocally and instrumentally, Find your wings and perfect wit the vocals and smuckers with the instrumental

I fucking love Tyler man. No one I'd rather listen to, no one I'd rather hear about, man you're great. Even when your old songs weren't what I usually am drawn towards they still made my heart melt man and I fuckin love you for that. This song shoulda been released as a single before flowerboy because it's the perfect transition from igor to flowerboy. I love you man

I like to think that this guy Igor is pining after just won't listen to him, like in this song he's spilling his heart out, but mr crush just keeps on going "uhu, alright," like nothing's being said lol. Anyway, I think it's clever and it conveys the unhealthy dynamic igor and his crush got.

The drum beat sounds oddly similar to “I DON’T LOVE YOU ANYMORE” at times. Dope 🤔🤔

this could actually come after November because of the answering machine part. Also, fun fact, Tyler mentions this song in See You Again very briefly; "It's them rose tinted cheeks, yeah, it's them dirt colored eyes" The first part also feels like it's from Flower Boy, but the second is more reminiscent of IGOR, so it's nice to see that even before those albums, Tyler was predicting his sound. 10/10 would listen again for like the 50,000th time

No literally like what the fuck, the last like poem or few words that were spoken at the end of the song literally described a very specific type of situation/feeling I have (I don't even know anymore and I hate not knowing anymore) with this girl. I read the lyrics Tyler has in the description box and wow deadass, just DEADASS. ALSO THE CHORUS SINGING IS OFF KEY BUT IT'S OKAY, A MASTERPIECE WITHIN ITSELF.

I think Rose-Tinted Cheeks could still fit perfectly after Glitter even though since the end of the song the answering machine doesn’t catch Tyler’s song/voicemail which could then Segway into Rose-Tinted Cheeks as he mentions “I did it in a song, I was too afraid to call you” since the voicemail didn’t go through and maybe didn’t have the nerve to call and leave another. That then could lead into Enjoy Right Now, Today.
