  • Yeah

    Remember when I used to be happy for you?
    You could go out with your female friends and I'd be totally fine
    Remember when you used to be happy for me?
    You'd celebrate all my success without crossing a line

    Now, it's like we're scared of getting good
    'Cause we know the truth is that we could
    Yeah, we know that we might actually work
    And the truth is that we could

    But maybe it's the worst in me
    That's bringing out the worst in you
    I know we can fix these kinks
    But the worst in me doesn't want to work on things
    But the best of me wants to love you
    But the worst in me doesn't want to

    Ah-ah-ah
    Ah-ah-ah
    Ah-ah-ah

    It's almost like I've gotten so used to resentment
    That every annoying little thing you say has lost its effect
    It's almost like it's made you a little bit bitter
    When I don't always react the way you expect

    It's like we're scared of getting good
    'Cause we know the truth is that we could
    Yeah, we know that we might actually work
    And the truth is that we could

    But maybe it's the worst in me
    Bringing out the worst in you
    I know we can fix these kinks
    But the worst in me doesn't want to work on things
    But the best of me wants to love you
    But the worst in me doesn't want to

    I won't hurt you again
    If you won't, if you won't
    Yeah, baby, I won't lose you again
    If you won't, if you won't

    Remember when I used to be happy for you?

    But maybe it's the worst in me (worst in me)
    That's bringing out the worst in you
    I know we can fix these kinks
    But the worst in me doesn't want to work on things
    But the best of me wants to love you, I really want to
    But the worst in me doesn't want to

    Ah-ah-ah (really doesn't want to)
    Ah-ah-ah
    Ah-ah-ah (the worst in me doesn't want to)
    Ah-ah-ah
    Ah-ah-ah (oh)
    Ah-ah-ah (the worst in me doesn't want to) Writer/s: Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, Mattias Per Larsson, Robin Lennart Fredriksson
