  • Oh god!
    Sean Don
    Fall Out, Boi!

    Did you trip down 12 steps into Malibu, ooh ooh
    (Malibu, ooh, ooh, oh,)
    So why the hell is there a light that's keeping us forever
    Bel Air baby, did you get dressed up,
    Pretty pout, pout
    Until you bottomed up, oh
    I can't stop it when there's chemicals keeping us together
    I'm singing

    Whoa
    How the mighty fall
    The mighty fall
    The mighty fall
    They fall in love
    How the mighty fall
    The mighty fall
    The mighty fall
    Oh how the mighty fall in love

    Your crooked love is just a pyramid scheme
    And I'm dizzy on dreams (and I'm dizzy on dreams)
    But if you ask me two's a whole lot lonelier than one
    Baby we should have left our love in the gutter where we found it
    (Gutter where we found it)
    'Cause your only crime is that you got caught
    I'm singing

    Whoa
    How the mighty fall
    The mighty fall
    The mighty fall
    They fall in love
    How the mighty fall
    The mighty fall
    The mighty fall
    Oh how the mighty fall in love

    It's getting clear
    You're never coming clean
    Lock you up inside, and swallow, swallow the key

    Hello?
    Yeah I know you said not to call unless I'm dying
    But I'm driving and I can't stop staring at my eyelids
    But even though my eyes closed, I still see you
    I just hope that when you see me I'm not see-through
    You know how we do

    Sometimes I swear, I need a day just for me to lay
    With some T and A, but the way we, they way we is do deeper
    Baby straight up chemistry DNA
    Make me wanna give you every dollar out my B of A
    Like, I let her climb on top
    I'm either fuckin or workin', so the grind don't stop
    They say I got screws missing, well hell, only when I'm missing you
    And hell yeah I'm a dick, girl, addicted to you

    Whoa
    How the mighty fall
    The mighty fall
    The mighty fall
    They fall in love
    How the mighty fall
    The mighty fall
    The mighty fall
    Oh how the mighty fall in love Writer/s: ANDREW HURLEY, BUTCH WALKER, JOHN HILL, JOSEPH TROHMAN, PATRICK STUMP, PETER WENTZ, SEAN ANDERSON
