  • I'm a puzzle
    I'm a walking contradiction
    And far from mint condition
    'Cause there's pieces I can't find
    Sometimes trouble
    A can of cope, a day addiction
    With set in stone convictions
    And a no bend bottom line

    I'm an easy read but I ain't no open book
    Got a knack for making things harder than they look

    I'm a straight shootin'
    Beer drinkin', rule breakin'
    Don't think I won't take a good thing too far
    I'm a midnightin', backslidin'
    Getaway car drivin'
    Runnin' away with your heart
    I guess, be careful what you wish for, is all I meant when I said
    What you see is what you get

    At least I'm honest
    I don't spin it like a record
    And I ain't acting like I'm better
    Than you know I really am
    Yeah, you're dead on it
    You got me figured, I'll admit it
    Set in my ways hard-headed
    But hell, I do the best I can

    I'm a straight shootin'
    Beer drinkin', rule breakin'
    Don't think I won't take a good thing too far
    I'm a midnightin', backslidin'
    Getaway car drivin'
    Runnin' away with your heart
    I guess, be careful what you wish for, is all I meant when I said
    What you see is what you get

    With me ain't no tricks up these sleeves
    An acquired taste, a constant work in progress

    I'm a straight shootin'
    Beer drinkin', rule breakin'
    Don't think I won't take a good thing too far
    I'm a midnightin', backslidin'
    Getaway car drivin'
    Runnin' away with your heart
    I guess, be careful what you wish for, is all I meant when I said
    What you see is what you get
    What you see is what you get

    What you get baby Writer/s: Barry George Dean, Jonathan David Singleton, Luke Albert Combs, Noah Kahan
