1950

Album: Make My Bed (2018)
  • I hate it when dudes try to chase me
    But I love it when you try to save me
    'Cause I'm just a lady

    I love it when we play 1950
    It's so cold that your stare's 'bout to kill me
    I'm surprised when you kiss me

    So tell me why my gods look like you
    And tell me why it's wrong

    So I'll wait for you, I'll pray
    I will keep on waiting for your love
    For you, I'll wait
    I will keep on waiting for your

    Did you mean it when you said I was pretty?
    That you didn't wanna live in a city
    Where the people are shitty?

    I like it when we play 1950
    So bold, make them know that you're with me
    Stone cold, will you miss me?

    So tell me why my gods look like you
    And tell me why it's wrong

    So I'll wait for you, I'll pray
    I will keep on waiting for your love
    For you, I'll wait
    I will keep on waiting for your

    I hope that you're happy with me in your life
    I hope that you won't slip away in the night
    I hope that you're happy with me in your life
    I hope that you won't slip away
    I hate it when dudes try to chase me
    I love it when you try to save me
    'Cause I'm just a lady

    So tell me why my gods look like you
    And tell me why it's wrong

    So I'll wait for you, I'll pray
    I will keep on waiting for your love (for your love, for your love, for your love)
    For you, I'll wait
    I will keep on waiting for your Writer/s: Mikaela Straus, Nick Long
