  • Woah, yeah

    I've been waiting (I've been waiting)
    I've been waiting up
    'Cause I can't get enough, oh
    I feel I'm fading (yeah)
    When I fall apart
    Your needle sews my heart, oh

    Fuck me up and make me just go crazy
    Addicted to the pain that you just made me love
    I'm fiendin' for your touchin' on the daily
    You're the only one that I want

    Break my heart but don't tell me I'm not doin' fine
    'Cause I'm doin' fine
    Let me go, I'm spendin' time
    Not doin' fine but I'm doin' fine

    Why you actin' vain for my love, vain for my love
    When you got everything that I want?
    Why you actin' vain for my blood, vain for my blood
    When you got everything that I want?
    Why you actin'?

    I've been dreamin' (uh)
    Of your uniform
    Your uniform of non-conformity
    The tears, the tears
    Tears aren't strong enough
    The years aren't long enough, no

    Fuck me up and make me just go crazy
    Addicted to the pain that you just made me love (woah, yeah)
    I'm fiendin' for your touchin' on the daily
    You're the only one that I want (yeah)

    Break my heart but don't tell me I'm not doin' fine
    'Cause I'm doin' fine
    Let me go, I'm spendin' time
    Not doin' fine but I'm doin' fine

    Why you actin' vain for my love, vain for my love
    When you got everything that I want?
    Why you actin' vain for my blood, vain for my blood
    When you got everything that I want?
    Why you actin' vain?

    It's hard to miss you
    When you are always on the tip of my tongue, now
    I feel like I'm looking for somethin'
    Somethin' that'll never come

    Call me when you're in the city again
    My head just went oblivion
    It's hard to miss you
    When you are always on the tip of my tongue
    (Always on the tip of my tongue)

    And now the time is right, you wanna do me so wrong
    Now the time is right, you wanna do me so wrong
    When I've been waitin' (I've been waitin')
    Long for you (long for you)

    I wanna drink my wine, I wanna pass that by
    I wanna make her cry, she wanna make me die
    Apple pie, six cigarettes
    And I'll catch the vibe that we can't forget

    Why you actin' vain for my love, vain for my love
    When you got everything that I want?
    Why you actin' vain for my blood, vain for my blood
    When you got everything that I want?
    Why you actin' vain?

    It's hard to miss you
    When you are always on the tip of my tongue
    I feel like I'm looking for somethin'
    Somethin' that'll never come

    I'll be waiting (I'll be waiting)
    Oh, for you (I'll be waiting) (for you)
    And now the time is right, you wanna do me so wrong (I'll be waiting)
    And now the time is right, you wanna do me so wrong (for you) Writer/s: Andrew Hurley, Brenton Duvall, Brian Dong Ho Lee, Gustav Elijah Ahr, Joseph Mark Trohman, Louis Bell, Makonnen Sheran, Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Valentin Leon Blavatnik
