  • Heard from a friend of a friend that you had a reputation
    And it sounded like my kind of lonely medication
    I was the girl he'd cheat on, lookin' for a little bit of neon
    So I got drunk, hit you up and you took the invitation

    We were dive bar kissin'
    Heartbreak fixin'
    No strings, Saturday night
    Hot like a match that burned out fast
    Forever wasn't in our eyes
    You knew it, and I knew it
    And it was a damn good time
    My last call, first call, no fallin'
    Just my gettin' over him guy

    I was gettin' over him

    Heard from a friend of a friend that you had a bad month, girl
    You said that you needed someone who liked to have a little fun, girl
    Turns out that's my specialty, cooked you up a good recipe
    Denim on denim, forget him, yeah, we lit it up, girl

    We were dive bar kissin'
    Heartbreak fixin'
    No strings, Saturday night
    Hot like a match that burned out fast
    Forever wasn't in our eyes
    You knew it, and I knew it
    And it was a damn good time
    My last call, first call, no fallin'
    Just your gettin' over him guy

    Yeah, you were gettin' over him
    I was gettin' over him

    Girl, I can be your go to, hold you, savior
    Let me know if I can ever return the favor

    We were dive bar kissin'
    Heartbreak fixin'
    No strings, Saturday night (oh yeah)
    Hot like a match that burned out fast
    Forever wasn't in our eyes
    You knew it, and I knew it
    And it was a damn good time
    My last call, first call, no fallin'
    Just my gettin' over him guy Writer/s: Emily Lynn Weisband, Lauren Alaina Suddeth, Paul Charles Digiovanni
