  • Listen, I know it's been hard
    You know, it's no different for me
    We're less than a zero-sum game now
    And baby, we both know that's not how it's supposed to be

    The writing's on the wall
    It seems like forever
    Since we had a good day
    The writing's on the wall

    But I just want to get you high tonight
    I just want to see some pleasure in your eyes
    Some pleasure in your eyes

    And I go too high, and you go too cold then we both fall apart
    Then you bring your mind, to rest against mine
    But the mind has no say on affairs of the heart

    The writing's on the wall
    It seems like forever
    Since we had a good day
    The writing's on the wall

    But I just want to get you high tonight
    I just want to see some pleasure in your eyes
    Some pleasure in your eyes

    Then you bring your mind, to rest against mine
    But the mind has no say on affairs of the heart

    The writing's on the wall
    It seems like forever
    Since we had a good day
    The writing's on the wall

    But I just want to get you high tonight
    I just want to see some pleasure in your eyes
    Some pleasure in your eyes

    I just want to get you high
    Just want to get you high
    Just want to get you high
    Even if it's the last thing we do together
    Even if it's the last thing we do together Writer/s: Andy Ross, Damian Kulash, Timothy Norwind
