Personal

Album: Sweet Talker (2014)
  • No I'm not a liar
    Just didn't know how to tell you the truth
    All we need is time
    We don't know why we do what we do
    But we do

    On a night like this
    Just don't know what I'm trying to prove
    No we can't predict
    The reasons why we do what we do
    But we do, but we do
    Yeah we do what we do
    Yeah we do what we do
    Yeah we do what we do

    When you fall in love
    You can't help it when you act like a fool
    When you look above
    You see the reasons why we do what we do
    What we do, what we do
    Yeah we do what we do
    Yeah we do what we do
    Yeah we do what we do

    Ain't got a shotglass in my fist
    To spill it away on my business
    Telling these strangers about you
    I'm getting too, I'm getting too, I'm getting too
    Personal, getting too personal
    I'm getting too personal, personal
    Personal with you

    Now I'm wondering
    They can tell that I've been crying all night?
    'Cause I told myself
    I don't love you, though I know it's a lie
    'Cause I do

    When you fall in love
    You can't help it when you act like a fool
    When you look above
    You see the reasons why we do what we do

    Ain't got a shotglass in my fist
    To spill it away on my business
    Telling these strangers about you
    I'm getting too, I'm getting too, I'm getting too
    Personal, getting too personal
    I'm getting too personal, personal
    Personal with you

    Hear me out, hear me out right now, hey
    Hear me out, hear me out now, hey
    You've been running through my mind all day
    Hear me out now, hear me baby

    Hear me out, hear me out right now, hey
    Hear me out, hear me out now, hey
    You've been running through my mind all day
    Hear me out now, hear me baby

    Shotglass in my fist
    So spill it away on my business
    Telling these strangers about you
    I'm getting too, I'm getting too, I'm getting too
    Personal, getting too personal
    I'm getting too personal, personal
    Personal with you

    You've been running through my mind all day
    Hear me out now, hear me baby Writer/s: JENNA LAUREN ANDREWS, WILLIAM LARSON, ELLE VARNER
