  • When a good thing goes bad it's not the end of the world
    It's just the end of a world, that you had with one girl
    And she's the reason it happened, but she's overreacting
    And it's all because she don't want things to change

    So cry if you need to, but I can't stay to watch you
    That's the wrong thing to do
    Touch if you need to, but I can't stay to hold you
    That's the wrong thing to do
    Talk if you need to, but I can't stay to hear you
    That's the wrong thing to do
    'Cause you'll say you love me, and I'll end up lying
    And say I love you too

    But I need someone different
    You know it, oh ho, you know it
    Oh ho, you know it, we both know it
    I need someone different
    You know it, oh ho, you know it
    Oh ho, you know it, we both know it
    Something's been missing
    You know it, oh ho, she knows it
    Oh ho, I know it, we all know it
    I need someone different (oh ho, oh ho)

    We live in a generation of, not being in love, and not being together
    But we sure make it feel like we're together
    'Cause we're scared to see each other with somebody else

    So cry if you need to, but I can't stay to watch you
    That's the wrong thing to do
    Touch if you need to, but I can't stay to hold you
    That's the wrong thing to do
    Talk if you need to, but I can't stay to hear you
    That's the wrong thing to do
    'Cause you'll say you love me, and I'll end up lying
    And say I love you too

    But I need someone different
    You know it, oh ho, you know it
    Oh ho, you know it, we both know it
    I need someone different
    You know it, oh ho, you know it
    Oh ho, you know it, we both know it
    Something's been missing
    You know it, oh ho, she knows it
    Oh ho, I know it, we all know it
    I need someone different (Oh ho, oh ho) Writer/s: Adrian Eccleston, Aubrey Drake Graham, Donald McLean, Noah James Shebib
