Frank Ocean - self control

(feat. Yung Lean & Austin Feinstein)

[Intro: Frank Ocean]
Pool side convo about your summer last night, oh yeah
About your summer last night
Ain't give you no play, mm
Could I make you shive last night?
Could I make you shy on the last night, last night?
Could we make it in? Do we have time?

[Verse 1: Frank Ocean]
I'll be the boyfriend in your wet dreams tonight
Noses on a rail, little virgin wears the white
You cut your hair but you used to live a blonded life
Wish I was there, wish we'd grown up on the same advice
And our time was right

[Chorus: Austin Feinstein]
Keep a place for me, for me
I'll sleep between y'all, it's no thing
It's no thing, it's no thing
Keep a place for me, for me

[Verse 2: Frank Ocean]
Now and then you miss it, sounds make you cry
Some nights you dance with tears in your eyes
I came to visit 'cause you see me like a UFO
That's like never, 'cause I made you use your self control
And you made me lose my self control, my self control

[Chorus: Austin Feinstein & Yung Lean]
Keep a place for me, for me
I'll sleep between y'all, it's no thing
Keep a place for me
It's nothing, it's no thing
It's nothing, it's no thing

[Bridge]
Sometimes you'll miss it and the sound
Will make you cry
And some nights you're dancing
With tears in your eyes

[Outro: Frank Ocean]
I, I, I
Know you gotta leave, leave, leave
Take down some summer time
Give up, just tonight, night, night
I, I, I
Know you got someone comin'
You're spitting game, know you got it
I, I, I
Know you gotta leave, leave, leave
Take down some summer time
Give up, just tonight, night, night
I, I, I
Know you got someone comin'
You're spitting game, know you got it
(Nobody else, nobody else)
I, I, I
Know you gotta leave, leave, leave
Take down some summer time
Give up, just tonight, night, night
I, I, I
Know you got someone comin'
You're spitting game, know you got it

“Self Control” is the seventh track on Frank Ocean's Blonde, a slow ballad which features Frank describing a relationship that is slowly falling apart. Throughout the song, Frank hints the reason their relationship fell apart was because the other person was too immature. The intro features a high-pitch vocal effect Frank uses throughout the album. The squeaky voice suggests Frank is reminiscing about events that happened in his youth. Musically, the track is largely carried by a lone electric guitar part provided by Alex G, who also is responsible for the guitar solo about halfway the song. Austin Feinstein of indie band Slow Hollows and Yung Lean sing the choruses. Austin sings the first alone, with Yung Lean joining him on the second.
