Lyrics[]

[Verse 1: Ariana Grande]
Ooh, yeah
Said, every moment I'm away from you
I think of all the laughter
That we shared on better days
It's so hard to stay away
Really wanna text you first
But, It'd better if I could just
Hold out for a couple days
It's so hard to stay away

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Cause I love you, and I want you, and I need you
I wish you were right here with me
I can't ignore the memories
Baby, cause I love you, and I want you, and I need you
I wish you were right here with me
Cause baby it's the little things
Just wish you would say

[Chorus: Ariana Grande & Victoria Monét]
Hi, love, just say hi
Hi, love, why make it harder than it has to be?
Just wish you would say
Hi, love, just say hi
Hi, love, and now that you've been missin' me
So won't you just say hi to mе, baby?
Hi, hi, hi

[Verse 2: Ariana Grande & Victoria Monét]
Wish you would just
Show up at my door and tell me
That you've thought 'bout it
And you changed your mind
I'm just tryna make you mine
I heard you was thinkin' 'bout me
So why can't you come and make me?
Make me yours, don't let me go
Give me one more chance to show you

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Cause I love you, and I want you, and I need you
I wish you were right here with me
I can't ignore the memories
Baby, cause I love you, and I want you, and I need you
I wish you were right here with me
Cause baby it's the little things
Just wish you would say

[Chorus: Ariana Grande & Victoria Monét]
Hi, love, just say hi
Hi, love, why make it harder than it has to be?
Just wish you would say
Hi, love, just say hi
Hi, love, now that you've been missin' me
So won't you just say hi to me, baby?

[Bridge]
Ah-ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah (Do-do-do)
Ah-ah, ah-ah (Do-do-do-do)
Ah-ah, ah-ah (Ah, yeah, na-na-na-na)
Ah-ah, ah-ah

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Hi, love, just say hi
Hi, love, why make it harder than it has to be?
Just wish you would say
Hi, love, just say hi
Hi, love, now that you've been missin' me
So won't you just say hi to me, baby?
