  • Darling, I just left the bar
    And I've misplaced all my credit cards
    My self preservation and all of my reservations
    Are sitting and contemplatin' what to do with me, do with me

    Think I took it way too far
    And I'm stumbling drunk, getting in a car
    My insecurities are hurting me
    Someone, please come and flirt with me
    I really need a mirror that'll come along and tell me that I'm fine

    I do it every time
    I keep on hanging on the line
    Ignoring every warning sign
    Come on and make me feel alright again

    'Cause it's 3am
    And I'm calling everybody that I know
    And here we go again
    While I'm running through the numbers in my phone
    And yeah I'll take fake moans and dial tones
    Let 'em spill right down the microphone
    I need it digital
    'Cause, baby, when it's physical
    I end up alone, end up alone

    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
    I need it digital
    'Cause, baby, when it's physical
    I end up alone, end up alone

    Every night I wanna live in color through a white-blue screen
    I got a technicolor vision going vivid in my white-blue jeans
    I know it's complicated 'cause everyone that I've dated
    Says they hate it 'cause they don't know what to do with me, do with me
    Know that my identity's always gettin' the best of me
    I'm the worst of my enemies and I don't really know what to do with me
    Yeah, I don't really know what to do with me

    I keep on hangin' on the line
    Ignoring every warning sign
    Come on and make me feel alright again

    'Cause it's 3am
    And I'm calling everybody that I know
    And here we go again
    While I'm running through the numbers in my phone
    And yeah I'll take fake moans and dial tones
    Let 'em spill right down the microphone
    I need it digital
    'Cause, baby, when it's physical
    I end up alone, end up alone

    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
    I need it digital
    'Cause, baby, when it's physical
    I end up alone, end up alone

    I'm reckless, treated like a necklace
    Take a different version and I try it on for size
    With everybody that I know
    And will you please pick up the fucking phone?

    'Cause it's 3am
    And I'm calling everybody that I know
    And here we go again
    While I'm running through the numbers in my phone
    And yeah I'll take fake moans and dial tones
    Let 'em spill right down the microphone
    I need it digital
    'Cause baby when it's physical
    I end up alone, end up alone

    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
    I need it digital
    'Cause baby when it's physical
    I end up alone

    (Your, your best song)
    (Is a song a song that's currently on the radio)
    (How many people can say that?)
    (That their best song is the one that's currently about to be a massive hit?)
    (It's already a hit)
    (It's just gonna get more massive)
    (How many people can say it?)
    (Not very many)
