Hearts on a string
Like an older fashioned phone can
Bang bringy bring 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
Stickers in your bag
Had your number but I lost it
Bets are all off, you're a little lilly giver
Indie in the hidden cost, 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

He's already on the outskirts
I'm still pulling at his sweatshit
He says "Fate is not a factor"
I'm in love with every actor.

So, once when you're gone and I wanna do it backwards
Just like the song, we're addicted to the L word
Up past your head, down your back, around your ankles
Ready for attack, you're obsessioned and then strangled
Cringe like you're cursed
With your wreckingbally necklace
I saw it first and I crushed it with my hamfist
High for the contest, who's the better not see
Eye to eye to eye, now I'm blind and you can catch me
Catch me if you can, if you can, if you can, if you can.

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, you've given it away
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

He's already on the outskirts,
I'm still pulling at his sweatshirt
He says "Fate is not a factor"
I'm in love with every actor.

He's already on the outskirts,
I'm still pulling at his sweatshirt
He says "Fate is not a factor"
I will let you go if you would let some
I will let you go if you would let somebody
I will let you go if you would let somebody love you
I will let you go if you would let somebody love you like
I will let you go if you would let somebody love you like I do.
Like I do, like I do.
