  • If you just grew up a little more then
    You know that you'd be perfect, you'd be perfect
    If you just tried harder like I know you could then
    You know that it'd be worth it, it'd be worth it

    I could tell myself that you'll get there, you'll get there
    But the more that you don't, the less blind I am
    I could tell myself that you'll get there, hang in there
    But honestly now, I'm beginning to understand

    That I'm not in love with you
    I'm not in love with you
    I'm in love with your potential
    I'm in love with your potential

    I get fed up and then you show up
    You act like I'm so perfect, I'm so perfect
    A shot of stronger keeps me longer
    And I hope that, I hope it's worth it, I hope it's worth it

    I could tell myself that you'll get there, you'll get there
    But the more that you don't, the less blind I am
    I could tell myself that you'll get there, hang in there
    You'll get there (hang in there)

    But I'm not in love with you
    I'm not in love with you
    I'm in love with your potential
    I'm in love with your potential

    Yeah, you are is who you are
    And it's alright, but it's not right for me
    No
    Maybe one day, but it's too late
    And I can't wait, but I can't wait to see
    No

    I'm not in love with you

    No, I'm not in love with you
    I'm not in love with you
    I'm in love with your potential
    I'm in love with your potential

    I'm not in love with you
    I'm not in love with you
    I'm in love with your potential
    I'm in love with your potential Writer/s: DANIELLE SIMONE BRADBERY, EMILY LYNN WEISBAND, JOHAN GUSTAV LINDBRANDT
