    Baby really hurt me
    Crying in the taxi
    He don't wanna know me
    Says he made the big mistake of dancing in my storm
    Says it was poison
    So I guess I'll go home
    Into the arms of the girl that I love
    The only love I haven't screwed up
    She's so hard to please
    But she's a forest fire
    I do my best to meet her demands
    Play at romance, we slow dance
    In the living room, but all that a stranger would see
    Is one girl swaying alone
    Stroking her cheek

    They say, "You're a little much for me
    You're a liability
    You're a little much for me"
    So they pull back, make other plans
    I understand, I'm a liability
    Get you wild, make you leave
    I'm a little much for
    E-a-na-na-na, everyone

    The truth is I am a toy that people enjoy
    'Til all of the tricks don't work anymore
    And then they are bored of me
    I know that it's exciting
    Running through the night, but
    Every perfect summer's
    Eating me alive until you're gone
    Better on my own

    They say, "You're a little much for me
    You're a liability
    You're a little much for me"
    So they pull back, make other plans
    I understand, I'm a liability
    Get you wild, make you leave
    I'm a little much for
    E-a-na-na-na, everyone

    They're gonna watch me
    Disappear into the sun
    You're all gonna watch me
    Disappear into the sun Writer/s: Ella Yelich O'connor, Jack Antonoff
