I come over
Quarter past two
Love in my eyes
Blinded by you
Just to get a taste of heaven
I'm on my knees

I can't help it
I'm addicted
But I can't stand the
Pain inflicted
In the morning
You're not holding on to me

Tell me what's the point of doing this every night
What you're giving me
Is nothing but a heart
It's a lullaby
Gonna kill my dreams, oh
This is the last time
Baby make up your mind

'Cause I can't keep sleeping in your bed
If you keep messing with my head
Before I slip under your sheets
Can you give me something, please?
I can't keeping touching you like this
If it's just temporary bliss
Just temporary bliss

We were on fire
Now we're frozen
There's no desire
Nothing spoken
You're just playing
I keep waiting for your heart
(I keep waiting for you)

I am fiending for the sunshine
To show our love in a good light
Give me reason
I am pleading to the stars
(Tell me)

Tell me what's the point of doing this every night?
What you're giving me
Is nothing but a heart
It's a lullaby
Gonna kill my dreams, oh
This is the last time
Baby make up your mind

'Cause I can't keep sleeping in your bed
If you keep messing with my head
Before I slip under your sheets
Can you give me something, please?
I can't keeping touching you like this
If it's just temporary bliss
Just temporary bliss

I'm your one and only, only when you're lonely
(Na-na-na-na na-na-na-na) x2

I'm your one and only, only when you're lonely
Baby why you callin me?
Not another one
Not try'na be your whole life
I don't wanna fall asleep

I'm your one and only, only when you're lonely
Baby why you callin me?
Not another one
Not try'na be your whole life

I can't keep sleeping in your bed
If you keep messing with my head
Before I slip under your sheets
Can you give me something, please?
I can't keeping touching you like this
If it's just temporary bliss
Just temporary bliss
Temporary bliss

I can't keep sleeping in your bed
If you keep messing with my head
I can't keep feeling love like this
It's not worth temporary bliss

    It's not "a heart, it's a lullaby. " it's "what you're giving me is nothing but a heartless lullaby. " :)

    Basically he can't keep playing this game because he loves her to much and can't endure not being with her as more than just a booty call

    I don't understand the line "its nothing but a heart", i know she's just his booty call so why does he say its a heart..?

    What does the part where the song says
    "tell me what's the point of doing this every night?
    What you're giving me
    Is nothing but a heart
    It's a lullaby"
    Mean?
