Want It Back Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Hearts on a string like an older-fashioned phone can
Bang ringy ring and you think you're gonna get some
Thing you can bring to a party at your wake
Not thinking of the thing that you pay back when you take it
Take it

Like rats in a cage
Pushed the button, got the shock trick

Snickers in your bag
Had your number but i lost it
Bets are all off you're a lily-livered giver indie
In the hidden costs you're a sucker and you win

It doesn't matter if you want it back
You've given it away
You've given it away
It doesn't matter if you want it back
You've given it away
Away away away away away oh

He's already on the outskirts
I'm still pulling on his sweatshirt
He says fate is not a factor
I'm in love with every actor

So

Once when your gone and I wanna do it backwards
Just like the song were addicted to the L-word
Up past your head down your back around your ankles
Ready for attack, you're upstaged and then you're strangled

Cringe like you're cursed with your wrecking ball-y necklace
I saw it first and I crushed it with my ham fist
High for the contest who's the better
Not see eye to eye to eye and now you're blind
And you cant
Catch me

Catch me
If you can
(hes already on the outskirts)
If you can
(im still pulling on his sweatshirt)
If you can
(he says fate is not a factor)
If you can
(im in love with every actor)

It doesnt matter if you want it back youve given it away
Youve given it away
It doesnt matter if you want it back youve given it away
Youve given it away

Hes already on the outskirts
Im still pulling at his sweatshirt
He says fate is not a factor
Im in love with every actor

I will let you go if you will let some
I will let you go if you will let somebody
I will let you go if you will let somebody love you
I will let you go if you will let somebody love you like
I will let you go if you will let somebody love you like I do
