  • I'd do anything in my power
    To see you just smile
    I want you to prosper and come proper
    Even if that means I ain't by your side
    I'd do anything in my power
    To see you just smile
    I want you to prosper and come proper
    Even if that means I ain't by your side

    Devil on my shoulder tellin' me I'll die soon
    I don't really want that to impact you
    But I don't know, maybe I'm just paranoid
    I just want the best for you, I just want what's left of you
    Oh, you tell me that you're sad inside
    I'm sad that I can't satisfy
    Yeah, I pray that I get it right this time
    Maybe we'll be alright
    Oh, you tell me that you're sad inside
    I'm sad that I can't satisfy
    Yeah, I pray that I get it right this time
    Maybe we'll be alright

    I'd do anything in my power
    To see you just smile
    I want you to prosper and come proper
    Even if that means I ain't by your side
    I'd do anything in my power
    To see you just smile
    I want you to prosper and come proper
    Even if that means I ain't by your side

    Oh yeah
    I just wanna see you smile (you smile), don't cry (don't cry)
    Even though it means I gotta let you go
    Dependent on you, gotta learn to be alone
    'Cause I'm so desensitized
    When our skin is touching (yeah), I need drugs to love you (yeah)
    You want so much more from me, but I can only fuck you (you)
    I spent every day right beside you ('side you), 'side you ('side you)
    A hundred pics of me on your phone
    Now you're someone that I used to know
    At this point, we playin' with fire (fire), fire (fire)
    You don't wanna see what's in my phone
    It's just gonna hurt you more

    I'd do anything in my power
    To see you just smile (oh yeah)
    I want you to prosper and come proper
    Even if that means I ain't by your side (oh, oh)
    I'd do anything in my power (my power)
    To see you just smile
    I want you to prosper and come proper
    Even if that means I ain't by your side
