BackgroundEdit

"This song came together in 30 minutes, except for the bridge. It was one of the most exciting in the room to write; it was almost like we couldn’t keep up with how quickly it was going. It’s a chaotic love story of the early days in a relationship and trying to figure out your counterpart."[1]

The song describes a chaotic love story of the early days in a relationship and trying to figure out your counterpart.

LyricsEdit

Drink all night, never sleep
You say, "Go," I won't leave
I love you, you love me
But not in the same way
Rip my heart out and leave
On the floor, watch me bleed
I love you, you love me
But not in the same way

Not today
Mascara's runnin' down your face again
I can feel it comin' down on me
Hurricane insert name
We're good at this game, game

We fuck, and we fight, then you call me a psycho
I walk out the door, but you won't let me let go
Turn right around, throwin' rocks at your window
But I can't forget you, and I'll always let you

Drink all night, never sleep
You say, "Go," I won't leave
I love you, you love me
But not in the same way
Rip my heart out and leave
On the floor, watch me bleed
I love you, you love me
But not in the same way
Drink all night, never sleep
You say, "Go," I won't leave
I love you, you love me
But not in the same way
Rip my heart out and leave
On the floor, watch me bleed
I love you, you love me
But not in the same way

Not today
I'm wakin' up to my mistakes again
I know you love to point them out
Baby, I'm sick of sadness and you're sick of Xanax
We're good at this game, game

We fuck, and we fight, then you call me a psycho
I walk out the door, but you won't let me let go
Turn right around, throwin' rocks at your window
But I can't forget you, and I'll always let you

Drink all night, never sleep
You say, "Go," I won't leave
I love you, you love me
But not in the same way
Rip my heart out and leave
On the floor, watch me bleed
I love you, you love me
But not in the same way
Drink all night, never sleep
You say, "Go," I won't leave
I love you, you love me
But not in the same way
Rip my heart out and leave
On the floor, watch me bleed
I love you, you love me
But not in the same way

Way
But not in the same way
Way
But not in the same way

I don't ever wanna lie to you
But I can't say no to you
I know you think I'm bulletproof
But you know how to hurt me too
In the dark, we're black and white
In the morning, colourblind
Leave your mark with every bite
Then everything's alright
When you tell me you love me
Then you wanna leave me
Pouring your pills down the sink
Sayin' "It's not what you think"
Don't know if I love you
Don't know if I hate you
But I can't forget you, and I'll always let you

Drink all night, never sleep
You say, "Go," I won't leave
I love you, you love me
But not in the same way
Rip my heart out and leave
On the floor, watch me bleed
I love you, you love me
But not in the same way
Drink all night, never sleep
You say, "Go," I won't leave
I love you, you love me
But not in the same way
Rip my heart out and leave
On the floor, watch me bleed
I love you, you love me
But not in the same way

Way
But not in the same way
Way
But not in the same way
