Criminal

Album: The Project (2017)
  • I don't wanna close my eyes
    Why pretend I'm goin' to sleep
    When I know damn well I'm gonna keep lyin' here wide awake?
    Waitin' for the breath you take to come back
    I can't relax, I'm a tiger pacin' in my cage
    Cocked like a twelve gage
    Feelin' like a teenage crush, you're the rush
    You're the habit I can never get enough of

    Boy, what you do to me is criminal
    Baby, when I look in those eyes
    I feel like goin' through stop lights
    Lookin' at the cops like I got nothin' to lose
    Yeah boy, you got me burnin' like a match stick
    Take me to the edge and one step past it
    It ain't right, it ain't typical
    Oh, what you do to me is criminal

    I, have the right to remain silent
    But there ain't no way that I can
    'Cause I'm wired like a tickin' time bomb
    It's so wrong, but it feels right
    Tonight you repeatin' like an echo
    Baby, I can't let go, got me goin' klepto like a thief
    Yeah I'd steal, just to keep on feelin' what I feel

    Boy, what you do to me is criminal
    Baby, when I look in those eyes
    I feel like goin' through stop lights
    Lookin' at the cops like I got nothin' to lose
    Yeah boy, you got me burnin' like a match stick
    Take me to the edge and one step past it
    It ain't right, it ain't typical
    Oh, what you do to me is criminal

    Oh, oh, don't try to save me
    Oh, oh, you never gonna save me

    Boy, what you do to me is criminal
    Baby, when I look in those eyes
    I feel like goin' through stop lights
    Lookin' at the cops like I got nothin' to lose
    Yeah boy, you got me burnin' like a match stick
    Take me to the edge and one step past it
    It ain't right, it ain't typical
    Oh, what you do to me is criminal
    Yeah, what you do to me is criminal
    Yeah, what you do to me is criminal
    What you do me is criminal, criminal Writer/s: Christopher Stevens, Fred Wilhelm, Lindsay Ell
