You could want this
See if it fits for a bit
And if you don't like it
Then you can go like you have been
And I'll never tell, never tell how I fell for it 
I never fell before 

3, 2, 1, you get right up and I'm the one done 
You never say yes, not quite no
Say just enough to make me not go
You choose your words,
Careful voice, in the end I'm not the first choice
You say you want someone just like me

So then why am I your plan,
Why am I your plan,  
Why am I your plan B?
You know, you know you love the way I'm lingering,  
You keep me wrapped right round your finger,  
But you say, you say, just wait a little longer, and
And in time, I could be the right one
Please, I'm the B team 

This could hurt some,
But if we don't never know what it's worth to ya
I saw you first,  
Do ya remember? 
You played it well, victim sell,
How I fell for it, I never fell before

3, 2, 1, you get right up and I'm the one done 
You never say yes, not quite no
Say just enough to make me not go
You choose your words,
Careful voice, in the end I'm not the first choice
You say you want someone just like me

So then why am I your plan,
Why am I your plan,  
Why am I your plan B?
You know you know you love the way I'm lingering,  
You keep me wrapped right round your finger,  
But you say, you say, just wait a little longer, and
And in time I could be the right one
Please, I'm the B team

You like to make me beg, yes you like it
You like to make me beg, you do
You like to make me beg, yes you like it
You like to make me be you do
(You just like it)
You like to make me beg, yes you like it
You like to make me beg, you do
(You just like it)
You like to make me beg, yes you like it
You like to make me beg, you do
(YOU JUST LIKE IT)
You like to make me beg, yes you like it
You like to make me beg, you do
(YOU JUST LIKE OH)
You like to make me beg, yes you like it
You like to make me beg, you do

SAY JUST ENOUGH TO MAKE ME NOT GO

OH

You know you know
You love the way I'm lingering
You keep my wrapped right round your finger
But you say, you say, just wait a little longer, and
And in time I could be the right one

You know you, you love the way I'm lingering
You keep my wrapped right round your finger
But you say, you say, just wait a little longer, and
And in time I could be the right one

Please I'm the B Team

    I think it means that it could be that Josh is dating someone (lets call her Carolina) and Josh really likes Carolina but Carolina doesn't really like Josh, all she wants is someone so that she is not alone but Josh is sick of being 2nd choice and wants to be her one and only not just "The plan b". All Carolina is looking for is someone so called better but till she finds someone she will just keep him and maybe manipulate him not to leave her.

    I think this is a song about what it feels like to be someone's second choice, and to be stuck there. When you think you finally have a chance with them it's gone again, and when you're about to give up on them they string you along to keep you there again.

    That the guy is dating a girl, but the girl is cheating on him with another guy, and when she says she wants someone just like the guy, kinda means someone easy to trick? And the guy finds out, and yup. So most likely the girl is torturing the guy o-o
