Track Name: I Need You In My Life
you've got me wrapped around your finger
but i've got my hand around your neck
so if you think i'm finished
buckle in; we're not done yet

you're mine when it's convenient
but these days that's less and less
i see you out there with your girlfriends
slipping on your favorite dress

and that's when my heart sinks
i can't sleep. i can't think.
another semester alone

i find it so frightening
this can't be the right thing
i need you. i can't let you go

let me know what you need,
i need you in my life.
i need you in my life.
i need you in my life.

thought i had you where i want you
but that's clearly not the case
thought the way i kissed your neck
would make your heart beat into place

so if you're leaving, hope i haunt you
hope you always see my face
in every boy you find on top of you
i'm not just someone you replace
Track Name: Centerfold
baby, don't talk like that
you're my little centerfold
i'm addicted to love
you're my favorite chemical

i'm not using you but you're something to do
and if that's the case you'd be using me too
i'm a dog baby i'm howling for ya
I take what I want but it's never enough

you're my little centerfold
my favorite chemical

i been waiting on you, i been waiting on you
i been waiting on you, you
i been waiting on, i been waiting on
i been waiting on, i been waiting on

i been waiting on you
come through, come through
come through, i been waiting on you
come through, come through

girl, it's saturday night
you got nothing to do
come through, come through
'cause i been waiting on you

girl if you don't bite i might
go find me another one
but you're the one i like,
do me right, another night just having fun

you come to me when the going gets tough
you come to me because you like it rough
bite back, fight back, girl you know i like that
keep it on the right track you know i never hold back

no, you're my little centerfold
you're my favorite chemical
Track Name: The Worst Thing
i really liked you girl
heard you got a new thing
so tell me what do you think?
posting all these pictures just to spite you girl
hope you see them on your phone when
he comes to take you home just
so i'll be on your mind when
he's got you all alone
and that ain't right cruel girl
and that ain't right cruel girl

you're so cruel
think i could have loved you

i wanna be the worst thing to happen to you
i hope it hurts deep no matter what you do
hope you think of me with everyone new
i wanna be the worst thing to happen to you
to happen to you
i wanna be the worst thing to happen to you
to happen to you
wanna be the worst thing to happen to you

i really liked you, girl
used to treat me kindly
you're one of a kind please don't remind me
you rose to the top and now nothing can stop you
used to get along but now we just argue
fuck you i hate you it's always the same
when things don't go right you need someone to blame

you're so cruel
think i could have loved you

but i wasn't finished i thought you were with it
if you come around girl you know you can get it
you know you can get it
if you come around girl you know i'm still down

but why you keepin him around?
you should hit me up when he's out of town
you know that you miss me, been feeling the same
you're at your best when you're sayin my name
Track Name: Fucked With You
you've got your reasons for leaving
but i still wonder why
looks are deceiving, said you were happy
but girl i guess you lied

oh what am i talking about
i can't keep running my mouth
to all your friends

no, i just can't figure it out
i can't just sleep on the couch
how does this one end

i really fucked with you.
i gave you all i had
and now we're through
i really loved you
but now i'm on my own
to find something new

you've got somebody, now i'm nobody
i guess i'm not enough
see you at a party, but we're not speaking
bite my lip and drain my cup

babe, what are you doing this for?
what we had was beautiful
you say my name like you don't even know me
like you didn't used to hold me
like i know what i bought is not what you sold me
Track Name: Casually Cruel
i can you feel you in my veins
ever since the night you came
when your lipstick wipes away
got your face on my mind
and your body's to blame

you're so hip, you're so cool
you're so casually cruel
i don't know what to say
and i feel like a fool

you said you thought i was sweet
but i'm just not your type
what made you change your mind
by the end of the night?

i know that you know how this night will go
fall asleep on my floor with my hand at your throat
you said that sometimes you wonder if you care too much
drinking beer in the back of your stepbrother's truck

i can taste you on my tongue
ever since we both were young
but we're much older now
push your hair out your mouth
throw your dress to the floor
hooking up on my couch

when the next morning comes
i won't turn and run
i won't disappear

when you look in my eyes
you seem surprised
to find i'm still here

i know that you know how this night will go
fall asleep on my floor with my hand at your throat
i said that sometimes i wonder if i care too much
drinking beer in the back of your stepbrother's truck
Track Name: Left Behind
girl i don't fuck with you no more
that lock has changed; i done shut that door
i'm dying to tell you i don't even care
that there's marks on your neck or there's smoke in your hair
but that's just not true
i'm the same fool that loves you

you used to throw your clothes on my floor
why can't we go back to the way things were before?
i'm dying to tell you i've been sleeping around
that you can't compare to the love that i've found
but that's just not true
i'm the same shy guy you knew

why can't i just get you out of my head?
alone and under the sheets in my bed
where did you go? when did you change your mind?
was it really somebody this whole god damn time?
i know, i know i got left behind

you used to say i was better than him
that you couldn't wait for our life to begin
i'm dying to tell you i spent new years alone
i avoided my friends and i turned off my phone
you might say it's a shame
but know some things never change

fuck you.
