Taken

Album: Up All Night (2011)
  • Now that you can't have me
    You suddenly want me
    Now that I'm with somebody else
    You tell me you love me
    I slept on your doorstep
    Begging for one chance
    Now that I finally moved on
    You say that you missed me all along

    Who do you think you are?
    Who do you think I am?
    You only love to see me breaking
    You only want me 'cause I'm taken
    You don't really want my heart
    No, you just like to know you can
    Still be the one who gets it breaking
    You only want me when I'm taken

    You're messing with my head
    Girl that's what you do best
    Saying there's nothing you won't do
    To get me to say yes
    You're impossible to resist
    But I wouldn't bet your heart on it
    It's like I'm finally awake
    And you're just a beautiful mistake

    Who do you think you are?
    Who do you think I am?
    You only love to see me breaking
    You only want me 'cause I'm taken
    You don't really want my heart
    No, you just like to know you can
    Still be the one who gets it breaking
    You only want me when I'm taken

    Thank you for showing me
    Who you are underneath
    No, thank you, I don't need
    Another heartless misery
    You think I'm doing this to make you jealous
    And I know that you hate to hear this
    But this is not about you anymore

    Who do you think you are?
    Who do you think I am?
    You only love to see me breaking
    You only want me 'cause I'm taken
    You don't really want my heart
    No, you just like to know you can
    Still be the one who gets it breaking
    You only want me when I'm taken

    Now that you can't have me
    You suddenly want me Writer/s: TOBIAS GAD, LINDY ROBBINS, HARRY STYLES, NIAL HORANT, ZAYN MALIK, LIAM PAYNE, LOUIS TOMLINSON
