  • Mm, okay
    The simulation just went bad
    But you're the best I ever had
    Like handprints in wet cement
    She touched me, it's permanent

    In my head, in my head
    I couldn't hear anything you said, but
    In my head, in my head
    I'm callin' you "girlfriend," what the fuck?

    I don't do fake love
    But I'll take some from you tonight, yeah
    I know I've got to go
    But I might just miss the flight
    I can't stay forever, let's play pretend
    And treat this night like it'll happen again
    You'll be my bloody valentine

    I'm overstimulated and I'm sad
    I don't expect you to understand
    It's nothing less than true romance
    Or am I just makin' a mess?

    In my head, in my head
    I'm lyin' naked with you, yeah
    In my head, in my head
    I'm ready to die holding your hand

    I don't do fake love
    But I'll take some from you tonight, yeah
    I know I've got to go
    But I might just miss the flight
    I can't stay forever, let's play pretend
    And treat this night like it'll happen again
    You'll be my bloody valentine

    Damn, I can't hide
    How I feel about you inside
    I'd give everything up tonight
    If I could just have you, be mine
    Be mine, baby
    I can't hide
    How I feel about you inside
    I'd give everything up tonight
    If I could just have you

    I can't stay forever, let's play pretend
    And treat this night like it'll happen again
    You'll be my bloody valentine
    Be mine tonight

    No-no-no, no-no-no
    No-no-no no, not just tonight
    No-no-no, no-no-no
    No-no-no no, not just tonight
    No-no-no, no-no-no
    No-no-no no, not just tonight
    In my head, in my head
