Charli XCX – 1999 lyrics

(feat. Troye Sivan)

[Chorus: Charli XCX with Troye Sivan]
I just wanna go back, back to 1999
Take a ride to my old neighborhood
I just wanna go back, sing
"Hit me baby, one more time"
Wanna go back, wanna go

[Verse 1: Charli XCX]
Yeah, I just wanna go back
Nike Airs, all that
CD, old Mercedes
Drive 'round listening to Shady like, oh
Never under pressure, oh
Those days it was so much better, oh
Feelin' cool in my youth, relaxin'
No money, no problem
It was easy back then

[Pre-Chorus: Charli XCX]
Ooh, wish that we could go back in time, uh
Got memories
Ooh, maybe we could do it tonight
Tonight's the night

[Chorus: Charli XCX]
I just wanna go back, back to 1999
Take a ride to my old neighborhood
I just wanna go back, sing
"Hit me baby, one more time"
Wanna go back, wanna go

[Verse 2: Troye Sivan, Charli XCX & Both]
Yeah, I remember back home
Best friends, all night, no phone
No cares, I was dumb and so young
My room singing Michael Jackson (hee, hee)
Never under pressure, oh
Those days it was so much better, oh
Feelin' cool in my youth
I'm askin', "Does anyone remember how we did it back then?"

[Pre-Chorus: Charli XCX with Troye Sivan]
Ooh, wish that we could go back in time, uh
Got memories
Ooh, maybe we could do it tonight
Tonight's the night
Ah, yeah

[Chorus: Charli XCX]
I just wanna go back, back to 1999
Took a ride to my old neighborhood
I just wanna go back, sing
"Hit me baby, one more time"
Wanna go back, wanna go

[Post-Chorus: Charli XCX, Troye Sivan & Both]
Back to where we came from
Playin' air guitar on the roof
In the kitchen, up on the table
Like we had a beautiful view
I wanna go
I just wanna go back, back to 1999
Ah, yeah

[Bridge: Troye Sivan & Charli XCX]
Back to 1999
I know those days are over but a boy can fantasize
'Bout JTT on MTV and when I close my eyes
And I'm right there, right there
And he's right there, right there
And we're right there, right there
Ah, ah, ah
I wanna go back

[Chorus: Charli XCX with Troye Sivan]
I just wanna go back, back to 1999
Take a ride to my old neighborhood
I just wanna go back, sing
"Hit me baby, one more time"
Wanna go back, wanna go

[Post-Chorus: Charli XCX with Troye Sivan]
Back to where we came from (came from),
Playin' air guitar on the roof
In the kitchen, up on the table
Like we had a beautiful view
I wanna go
I just wanna go back, back to 1999

[Outro: Charli XCX, Troye Sivan & Both]
Go back, yeah, yeah
I just wanna go back, yeah back to 1999
Yeah
Take me back to '99
