  • Lover come over
    Look what I done
    I been alone so long
    I feel like I'm on the run

    Lover come over
    Kick up the dust
    I got a secret
    Starting to rust

    She said I'm looking like a bad man
    Smooth criminal
    She said my spirit doesn't move like it did before
    She said that I don't look like me no more, no more
    I said, "I'm just tired"
    She said, "You're just high"

    I said I saw you in the water
    I said I saw you in the water

    Lover come hold me
    Heads on the fritz
    Body intoxicated
    Feelings comfortably mixed
    Lover come hold me
    Could you forget?
    I got a secret
    Digging a ditch

    She said I'm looking like a bad man
    Smooth criminal
    She said my spirit doesn't move like it did before
    She said that I don't look like me no more, no more
    I said, "I'm just tired"
    She said, "You're just high"

    I said I saw you in the water
    I said I saw you in the water

    Sweating all your sins out
    Putting all your thoughts back together
    Oh, we just don't blend out
    All of my attempts seem to weather

    Oh, I make you cringe now
    Don't I make you cringe?
    Oh, I make you cringe now
    Don't I make you cringe?

    She said I'm looking like a bad man
    Smooth criminal
    She said my spirit doesn't move like it did before
    She said that I don't look like me no more, no more
    I said, "I'm just tired"
    She said I'm looking like a bad man
    Smooth criminal
    She said my spirit doesn't move like it did before
    She said that I don't look like me no more, no more
    I said, "I'm just tired"
    She said, "You're just high"
    I said I saw you in the water (do I make you cringe?)
    I said I saw you in the water (do I make you cringe?)
    I said I saw you in the water (do I make you cringe?)
    I said I saw you in the water (do I make you cringe?) Writer/s: James Oliver Richard Flannigan, Matthew Maeson
