  • You're a troublemaker (you're a troublemaker)

    You ain't nothing but a troublemaker, girl

    You had me hooked again from the minute you sat down
    The way you bite your lip
    Got my head spinnin' around
    After a drink or two
    I was putty in your hands
    I don't know if I have the strength to stand

    Oh oh oh, trouble troublemaker yeah
    That's your middle name, oh oh oh
    I know you're no good but you're stuck in my brain

    And I wanna know, why does it feel so good but hurt so bad?
    Whoa, my mind keeps saying, "run as fast as you can"
    I say I'm done but then you pull me back
    Whoa, I swear you're giving me a heart attack, troublemaker

    It's like you're always there in the corners of my mind
    I see a silhouette every time I close my eyes
    There must be poison in those finger tips of yours
    'Cause I keep comin' back again for more

    Oh oh oh, trouble troublemaker yeah
    That's your middle name, oh oh oh
    I know you're no good but you're stuck in my brain
    And I wanna know, why does it feel so good but hurt so bad
    Whoa, my mind keeps saying "Run as fast as you can"
    I say I'm done but then you pull me back
    Whoa, I swear you're giving me a heart attack, troublemaker

    Why does it feel so good but hurt so bad?
    Whoa, my mind keeps saying, "un as fast as you can" (troublemaker)
    I say I'm done but then you pull me back
    Whoa, I swear you're giving me a heart attack, troublemaker

    Maybe I'm insane
    'Cause I keep doing the same damn thing
    Thinkin' one day we gonna change
    But you know just how to work that back
    And make me forget my name
    What the hell you do I won't remember
    I'll be gone until November
    And you'll show up again next summer, yeah
    Typical middle name is Prada
    Fit you like a glove girl I'm sick of the drama you're a troublemaker
    But damn girl it's like I love the trouble
    And I can't even explain why

    Why does it feel so good but hurt so bad?
    Whoa, my mind keeps saying, "run as fast as you can" (troublemaker)
    I say I'm done but then you pull me back
    Whoa, I swear you're giving me a heart attack, troublemaker

    Why does it feel so good but hurt so bad?
    Whoa, my mind keeps saying "run as fast as you can" (troublemaker)
    I say I'm done but then you pull me back
    Whoa, I swear you're giving me a heart attack, troublemaker Writer/s: Breyan Stanley Isaac, Claude Kelly, Oliver Stanley Murs, Steven Oliver Robson, Tramar Dillard
