  • Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

    Thought I'd never be waking on the kitchen floor
    But here I lie, not the first time
    Now my morning has broken, and it brings the fear
    My mind's falling, falling

    Then I feel my pulse quickening
    But regrets can't change anything
    Yeah, I feel my pulse quickening
    When your name lights up the screen

    Oh joy, when you call me
    I was giving up, oh, I was giving in
    Joy, set my mind free
    I was giving up, oh, I was giving in

    How'd you always know when I'm down?
    How'd you always know when I'm down?

    Take a walk through the wreckage, clearing out my head
    I hear your eyes roll right down the phone
    I'm your walking disaster, keep on dragging me
    From self-pity, poor me

    Then I feel my pulse quickening
    But I wouldn't change a thing

    Oh joy, when you call me
    I was giving up, oh, I was giving in
    Joy, set my mind free
    I was giving up, oh, I was giving in

    How'd you always know when I'm down?
    How'd you always know when I'm down?

    As the night dissolves into this final frame
    You're a sweet relief, you saved me from my brain
    From my brain, from my brain, from my brain (brain, brain, brain, brain)
    Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa (brain, brain, brain, brain)

    Oh joy, when you call me
    I was giving up, oh, I was giving in
    Joy, set my mind free
    I was giving up, oh, I was giving in

    How'd you always know when I'm down?
    How'd you always know when I'm down?

    I feel joy when you call me
    I feel joy when you call me (I-I-I feel joy)
    I feel joy when you call me
    I feel joy when you call me
    How'd you always know when I'm down?
    How'd you always know when I'm down? Writer/s: Daniel Smith, Mark Crew
