101

Album: Girl On Fire (2012)
  • You used to the sound of a heart that's breaking
    I know it don't phase you anymore
    You're the king of the game that you're playing
    I know you've played it a hundred times before

    You fill your bedroom up with trophies
    Then you get a kick out of closing the door
    Got all the words to keep on hoping
    I know you've said them a hundred times before

    Then there's me, all false for your gold
    Then there's me, just love me for fun
    Then there's me, no use in pretending
    Oh there's me, a 101

    I might as well stand in front of a bullet
    Close my eyes and kick the chair to the floor
    It's like a speeding train that is coming
    I know you've crashed it 100 times before

    Then there's me, all false for your gold
    Then there's me, just love me for fun
    Uh there's me, no, no use in pretending
    Oh there's me, a 101

    Everybody says I gotta be crazy
    That I deserve everything that I get
    But I got a feeling
    That makes me wanna ignore all that you've done a 100 times before

    'Cause then there's me, could I be the one
    And baby there's me, to make you undone
    Uh darling there's me, no use, no use in pretending
    Oh there's me, a 101
    Me, 101
    So I gotta be, I gotta be, I gotta be a 101
    Maybe it's time, maybe it's me
    Maybe I could be, maybe pretend
    I gotta be, I gotta be 101
    Yeah baby Writer/s: Alicia Augello-Cook, Emeli Sande
