If you call me at all
Don't tell me that I'm ordinary
Cause I won't be passing you, please don't leave
And if you tell me you're listening to everything you read

Turn off this light, call my name
Don't talk, just ride
Who wouldn't let you be all about,
About me
I'm only trying to work this out

So, if you call me at all
Don't tell me that I'm ordinary
Cause I won't be passing you, please don't leave.
And if you tell me you're listening to everything you read
If you call me at all

Oh, I hear you breathing on the line
Oh baby girl, I'm not your type
I'll leave you hurting every night
So I won't be coming back
Who wouldn't let me be all alone
Who wouldn't let me be all alone
Who wouldn't let you scream ohh to a soft pillow

I'm such an animal
And baby honestly these teeth won't let you go

Don't tell me that I'm ordinary
Cause I won't be passing you, please don't leave
And if you tell me you're listening to everything you read
If you call me at all
Don't tell me that I'm ordinary
Cause I won't be passing you, please don't leave
And if you tell me you're listening to everything you read
If you call me at all
If you call me at all
If you call me at all
If you call me at all
If you call me at all

    It's about sex and is totally not a suprise the jonny would be the one too sing that part, but it's also about the relationship falling apart.

    In this song it's like a convo between a girl and a boy, Vic being the girl, And Johnny being the boy.
    Cause the girls like:
    Don't tell me I'm ordinary, cause I won't be passing you please don't leave and if you tell me you're listening to everything you read.
    She's saying don't tell her she's just an ordinary girl. And that girls as good as herself won't just by, like he won't get another girl that good so she's begging him to stay with her and love her.

    Turn off this light, call my name. Don't talk just ride. Who wouldn't let you be all about. About me. I'm only trying to work this out.

    So clearly he doesn't want the relationship he wants the sex. But he cares about her. But he also thinks she's like irresistible.

    So she sing the chorus again, she's just begging him to stay and wants the sex and love from the relationship but he just won't love her the same way. And she's just begging him to with everything she has.

    So he knows that he's just constantly hurting her and he can't stop because they're not right for each other. And he wants to leave and knows it's the right thing to do but can't bring himself to it.

    I'm such an animal
    And baby honestly these teeth won't let you go oh

    He's such an animal like he knows that what he's doing is wrong and he shouldn't but the sex is amazing and he just craves it and can't let her go. Even though he knows he's only hurting her but still just can't resist the sex so he stays with her anyway.

    It's about sex. Isn't it obvious? Haha, but it's also how the guy doesn't wanna commit to the relationship because he doesn't wanna hurt her.

    I think it's more a relationship that's slowly falling apart. The girl (most likely vic) is telling the boy (jonny as the boy) that the girl is special. No one will love or understand the boy as much as she does, and if the boy breaks up with her, then he won't find anyone like her. So, to repair the relationship a bit, they have sex, probably so they'll see how much they love each other. But even after the sex, the boy and girl continue to have problems and arguments. The boy is trying to repair the relationship, trying to see through his girlfriend's eyes, and the girl doing the same, yet they can't figure it out.

    It's how a lot of relationships seem to me. Two people in love, there's just a lot of obstacles they must face before they can both be happy.
