  • I know you're smart
    You spin me round like a knot
    You know the pieces, pieces of my heart
    Sometimes it's fun, you pull my strings one by one
    Until you get me, get me onto one

    Lately I've been thinking if you wanna get tough
    Then let's play rough
    Lately I've been thinking if you wanna get tough
    Then let's play rough
    I don't need you, giving it straight to me, giving it straight to me
    You're just gonna get my back
    I don't need you
    Telling me how to be, telling me how to be
    Just gonna get my back
    Just gonna get my back
    Just gonna get my back
    Just gonna get my back
    Just gonna get my back
    Back, back, back, back
    Back, back, back, back

    Just noise, white noise
    I'm hearing static, you're like an automatic
    You just wanna keep me on repeat and hear me crying
    Just noise, white noise
    Just noise, white noise
    I'm hearing static, you're like an automatic
    You just wanna keep me on repeat and hear me crying

    Only you can look at me the way you do
    You always tint me, tint me black and blue
    Such a shame, you frame me with such disdain+
    You got me washed out, washed out, color drained

    Lately I've been thinking if you wanna get tough
    Then let's play rough
    Lately I've been thinking if you wanna get tough
    Then let's play rough
    I don't need you, giving it straight to me, giving it straight to me
    You're just gonna get my back
    I don't need you
    Telling me how to be, telling me how to be
    Just gonna get my back
    Just gonna get my back
    Just gonna get my back
    Just gonna get my back
    Just gonna get my back
    Back, back, back, back
    Back, back, back, back

    Back, back, back, back
    Back, back, back, back
    Back, back, back, back
    Back, back

    Just noise, white noise
    I'm hearing static, you're like an automatic
    You just wanna keep me on repeat and hear me crying Writer/s: ALUNA DEWJI-FRANCIS, GUY WILLIAM LAWRENCE, HOWARD JOHN LAWRENCE, JAMES JOHN NAPIER
