  • If I could write you a song to make you fall in love
    I would already have you up under my arm
    I used up all my tricks, I hope that you like this
    But, you probably won't, you think you're cooler than me
    You got designer shades just to hide your face
    And you wear 'em around like you're cooler than me
    And you never say hey, or remember my name
    And it's probably 'cause you think you're cooler than me

    You got your high brow, shoes on your feet
    And you wear 'em around like it ain't shit
    But you don't know the way that you look
    When your steps make that much noise

    Shh, I got you all figured out
    You need everyone's eyes just to feel seen
    Behind your make up nobody knows who you even are
    Who do you think that you are

    If I could write you a song to make you fall in love
    I would already have you up under my arm
    I used up all my tricks, I hope that you like this
    But, you probably won't, you think you're cooler than me
    You got designer shades just to hide your face
    And you wear 'em around like you're cooler than me
    And you never say hey, or remember my name
    And it's probably 'cause you think you're cooler than me

    You got your high brow, switchin' your walk
    And you don't even look when you pass by
    But you don't know the way that you look
    When your steps make that much noise

    Shh, I got you all figured out
    You need everyone's eyes just to feel seen
    Behind your make up nobody knows who you even are
    Who do you think that you are

    'Cause it's your scene, (it's your scene)
    I got no doubt
    We all see
    You got your head in the clouds

    If I could write you a song to make you fall in love
    I would already have you up under my arm
    I used up all my tricks, I hope that you like this
    But, you probably won't, you think you're cooler than me
    You got designer shades just to hide your face
    And you wear 'em around like you're cooler than me
    And you never say hey, or remember my name
    And it's probably 'cause you think you're cooler than me Writer/s: Eric Holljes, Mike Posner
