  • Might as well have my alarm set on my phone girl
    It's like you got a camera, don't know how you know, I'm home alone girl
    Come around 10:47 every Friday night
    Might as well leave the light on, 'cause you're always right on time

    You call, I say hello
    You knock, I'm lettin' you in
    You say, you've missed
    My lips, we kiss
    Here we go again
    Your dress, my shirt
    We love, I live and never learn
    I crash, I burn
    You leave, I hurt
    Like clockwork

    It's like I'm walkin' down the street and fall in that same trap, girl
    I see a freight train comin' and I just stand there on the tracks, girl
    Somebody'd be gettin' rich if they were placin' bets
    On me thinkin' no, no, no, always sayin' yes

    You call, I say hello
    You knock, I'm lettin' you in
    You say, you've missed
    My lips, we kiss
    Here we go again
    Your dress, my shirt
    We love, I live and never learn
    I crash, I burn
    You leave, I hurt
    Like clockwork

    It's too easy, you know my street
    And you know where I leave my key
    Baby you know me, I can count on you, to count on me
    It's like a movie I've seen a thousand times
    I hate the end but I still hit rewind

    You call, I say hello
    You knock, I'm lettin' you in
    You say, you've missed
    My lips, we kiss
    Here we go again
    Your dress, my shirt
    We love, I live and never learn
    I crash, I burn
    You leave, I hurt
    Like clockwork

    Like clockwork (clockwork, clockwork)
