Cross You Out

  • Built a world
    All in my mind
    All on my own
    Will I survive? Oh

    Century of tears
    Sadness was my only smile (yeah)
    Thought I'd fall apart
    But you're gone and I'm doing fine
    I'm screaming out

    (Ooh, oh oh ooh)
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    I'll finally cross you out
    (Ooh, oh oh ooh)
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    I'll finally cross you out

    Melt me down
    One piece at a time
    I'm sayin' these eyes were shut
    I wasn't mesmerized, no

    Century of tears
    Sadness was another denial (yeah)
    Thought it fell apart
    But now you're gone, I'm doing fine
    I'm screaming out

    (Ooh, oh oh ooh)
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    I'll finally cross you out
    (Ooh, oh oh ooh)
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    I'll finally cross you out

    I've become someone better
    I've become someone better
    Yeah, yeah
    Now I look in the mirror
    And I learn myself better
    Yeah, yeah
    I've become someone better
    I've become someone better
    Yeah, yeah
    Now I look in the mirror
    Feels so good to forget ya
    Yeah, yeah

    (Ooh, oh oh ooh)
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    I'll finally cross you out
    (Ooh, oh oh ooh)
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    I'll finally cross you out
    (Ooh, oh oh ooh)
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    When you're not around, when you're not around
    I'll finally cross you out Writer/s: Alexander Guy Cook, Charlotte Aitchison, Linus Wiklund, Noonie Bao, Sky Ferreira
