A homegrown TikTok jazz musician Stacey Ryan (@staceyryanmusic) with over 1 million followers, recorded and uploaded a rough piano composition with vocals on the 1st day of December 2021 to a video-sharing social network app TikTok, captioned “the lights couldn’t handle the sheer power of this song I just wrote #originalmusic #banger #dontdoit”. The video played out the second verse and the chorus of this song.

28 days later, a certain artist Kivion Iles (@_im_yaboy) commented on the video expressing his interest in contributing some verses to this song, hence the Don’t Text Me Open Verse Challenge was commenced a day after via video reply. Many users participated in the challenge.

Zai1k (@zai1k_), a singer-songwriter, later collaborated with Ryan via duet video 6 days after the challenge has started. On the 7th day, Ryan and Zai1k affirmed the inception of the song’s full version via duet video in the same app. The full version was finally released on January 16th on digital platforms.

The song talks about the unsolicited texts from a former lover while being “drunk,” uttering sketchy and unsettled feelings towards each other.

Lyrics

[Intro: Stacey Ryan, Zai1k]
Please don’t text me when you’re drunk (I won’t text you when I’m drunk)
Ooh-ooh-ooh (I won’t text you when I’m drunk)
Or don’t text me at all
Yeah

[Verse 1: Zai1k]
I won’t text you at all, ain’t got to worry about me
And now you spam me with calls, I guess you heard ’bout me
You say “Don’t text you when I’m drunk,” but I don’t drink
You don’t know when you did enough like you don’t think
I stay away ’cause I know that you like to start with me
I stay away ’cause you won’t let me give you all of me
I know my place, no you won’t ever give your heart to me
You say “Don’t call you,” tell me, baby, why you callin’ me?
I was dumb, I was thinkin’ that we could be somethin’
But I see you only call me when you need somethin’
Just say the word, just let me know where did I go wrong?
But we can’t let this stop us now it’s time to move on
Let’s chop it up, you sit and tell me how you feel about me
Do you care what you said? Ain’t shed a tear about me
Missing us being really happy, your love found me
You say don’t text you when I’m drunk, I got no hate on me

[Chorus: Stacey Ryan]
Please don’t text me when you’re drunk
Put your phone away
I know you will wake up and regret everything you say
Don’t text me when you’re drunk
Or don’t text me at all

[Verse 2: Stacey Ryan, Zai1k]
One dates, two dates, it was fine (So fine)
But then you said you had too much on your mind
I called it out before it begun
I told you this before I do, I gotta say more
I don’t wanna be your someone, I’m just saying
So why did you decide to text when
You weren’t sober, should I answer?
I did after pondering a minute or two (Minute or two)
You said that you were disappointed (I was)
That it ended, but what did you want me to do

[Chorus: Stacey Ryan, Zai1k]
Please don’t text me when you’re drunk (I won’t text you when I’m drunk girl)
Put your phone away (Put it away)
I know you will wake up and regret everything you say
Don’t text me when you’re drunk, don’t do my heart like that (No, no, no)
It played out just like I thought it would and you took your words back
Why didn’t you wait ’til you had a clear mind and you could think straight (Straight)
Cause if you did, you wouldn’t have told me it was a mistake
Don’t text me when you’re drunk (Oh, girl, I promise I won’t)
Or don’t text me at all (Don’t do it)
Just please don’t text me when you’re drunk (Oh, no, no)
Or don’t text me at all (I won’t text you at all)

[Outro: Stacey Ryan, Zai1k]
You know you shouldn’t text (You really shouldn’t text)
You might say things you regret
Really shouldn’t text (Won’t text you at all when I’m drinking)
‘Cause when I start to miss you I think about your issues
And you shouldn’t really text
You may say things you regret (You know I’m losing sleep, yeah, you got me up late at night all in my feelings)
Fine being alone so don’t blow up my phone and you shouldn’t really text
You may say things you regret
And you really shouldn’t text
‘Cause when I start to miss you, I think about your issues
And you shouldn’t really text
