Advice

Album: SweetSexySavage (2016)
  • You have a way with words
    Your silence is a curse
    You always seem to break me down, down, down
    My swollen heart you curve
    Your comfort makes it worse
    I don't want you around, 'round, 'round, 'round

    'Cause how is the man of my dreams not a man of his words?
    And how is the man for me just a man that makes me hurt? (ooh)

    It's time to take my own (ooh)
    Take my own advice, take my own advice
    Need me to take my own
    Take my own advice, take my own advice

    I almost lost my mind (yeah)
    I left myself behind (yeah)
    I almost crashed and fell right from the sky (ooh)
    I took a chance on this (yeah)
    I took too big a risk (yeah)
    And now I'm left with pain to get me high

    'Cause how is the man of my dreams not a man of his words?
    And how is the man for me just a man that makes me hurt? (ooh)

    It's time to take my own (it's time to take)
    Take my own advice, take my own advice
    Need me to take my own
    Take my own advice, take my own advice

    You had to break me, take me
    To make me better
    But I had to save me, baby
    Now or never

    'Cause how is the man of my dreams not a man of his words?
    And how is the man for me just a man that makes me hurt? (ooh)

    It's time to take my own
    Take my own advice, take my own advice (hey)
    Need me to take my own (need me to take my)
    Take my own advice, take my own advice (yeah, ooh)

    Take, own, ooh, ooh
    Take, own, ooh, ooh Writer/s: Andrew Wansel, Warren Felder, Kehlani Parrish, Matt Campfield, Daniel Klein
