  • Here's how it goes
    Boy meets girl
    Girl leaves boy

    That's all I know
    All I've done
    All my life

    'Cause throughout my history
    I've only been with jerks
    Who couldn't take it

    But you see the picket fence
    A swing on the front porch
    With us two on it

    When I believe that nothing lasts forever
    You stay with me, keeping us together
    And make me feel like I never ever wanna give you up
    Till now, I've always been a quitter

    You rescued me
    Saved my life
    Just in time

    Saw past all my
    Issues and scars
    And made me try

    'Cause, oh, the way you're kissing me
    Makes it hard to breathe
    But I still like it

    Oh, oh, it truly feels like a dream
    You know exactly
    How I want it

    When I believe that nothing lasts forever
    You stay with me, keeping us together
    And make me feel like I never ever wanna give you up
    Till now, I've always been a quitter

    I've always been a quitter

    When I believe that nothing lasts forever
    You stay with me, keeping us together
    And make me feel like I never ever wanna give you up
    Till now, I've always been a quitter

    I've always been a quitter Writer/s: JOHAN SCHUSTER, MAX MARTIN, SAVAN KOTECHA
