  • My heart's a stereo
    It beats for you, so listen close
    Hear my thoughts in every note
    Make me your radio (yeah)
    And turn me up when you feel low (turn it up a little bit)
    This melody was meant for you (yeah, right there)
    Just sing along to my stereo
    (Gym Class Heroes, baby)

    If I was just another dusty record on the shelf
    Would you blow me off and play me like everybody else?
    If I ask you to scratch my back, could you manage that?
    Like ye-yeah, chicka, Travie, I can handle that
    Furthermore, I apologize for any skipping tracks
    It's just the last girl that played me left a couple cracks
    I used to, used to, used to, used to, now I'm over that
    'Cause holding grudges over love is ancient artifacts

    If I could only find a note to make you understand
    I'd sing it softly in your ear and grab you by the hand
    Just keep me stuck inside your head like your favorite tune
    And know my heart's a stereo that only plays for you

    My heart's a stereo
    It beats for you, so listen close
    Hear my thoughts in every note (yeah, yeah, yeah, come on)
    Make me your radio (uh-huh)
    And turn me up when you feel low (turn it up)
    This melody was meant for you
    Just sing along to my stereo

    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, to my stereo
    Oh, oh, oh
    So sing along to my stereo
    Let's go

    If I was an old-school, fifty-pound boombox (remember them?)
    Would you hold me on your shoulder, wherever you walk?
    Would you turn my volume up in front of the cops? (Turn it up)
    And crank it higher every time they told you to stop
    And all I ask is that you don't get mad at me (mad at me)
    When you have to purchase mad D batteries (batteries)
    Appreciate every mixtape your friends make (friends make)
    You never know, we come and go like on the interstate (never know)

    I think finally found a note to make you understand
    If you can hit it, sing along and take me by the hand
    Just keep me stuck inside your head like your favorite tune
    And know my heart's a stereo that only plays for you

    My heart's a stereo (yeah)
    It beats for you, so listen close (listen)
    Hear my thoughts in every note (oh, oh)
    Make me your radio (come on)
    And turn me up when you feel low (turn it up)
    This melody was meant for you
    Just sing along to my stereo (just sing along, like)

    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, to my stereo
    Oh, oh, oh
    So sing along to my stereo (sing along, sing along)

    I only pray you'll never leave me behind (never leave me)
    Because good music can be so hard to find (so hard to find)
    I take your hand and pull it closer to mine (yeah)
    Thought love was dead, but now you're changing my mind (yeah, yeah, come on, woo)

    My heart's a stereo (yeah)
    It beats for you, so listen close
    Hear my thoughts in every note (oh, oh, oh)
    Make me your radio (uh-huh)
    And turn me up when you feel low (turn it up)
    This melody was meant for you
    Just sing along to my stereo

    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, to my stereo
    Oh, oh, oh (it's your boy, Travie)
    (Gym Class Heroes, baby)
    So sing along to my stereo (yeah) Writer/s: Adam Noah Levine, Ammar Malik, Benjamin Joseph Levin, Brandon Lowry, Daniel Thomas Omelio, Disashi Lumumba-Kasongo, Eric Roberts, Matthew McGinley, Travis L. McCoy
