  • Oh

    Wait (wait)
    I know you gotta a lotta shit you'd like to say (to say, to say)
    Slow down, think you gettin' lil' carried away
    You're too close, to the flame
    But you don't, wanna turn around
    Like you got me figured out

    But girl, what I can promise is I'll let you down
    So don't put up a fight
    You'll get lost in the light

    If you keep staring at the sun, you won't see
    What you have become, this can't be
    Everything you thought it was
    Blinded by the thought of us, so
    Give me a chance, I will
    Fuck up again, I warned
    You in advance (oh)
    But you just keep on starin' at the sun

    Wait (yeah, yeah, wait)
    I know I got a lot of shit going on with me
    (Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah)
    Now we're free to loving anyone other than me
    I try to rewind, I get reminded that time don't wait for nobody
    Can't get too close and don't let it go

    'Cause I can count on you to let me down
    I won't put up a fight
    I got lost in the light (oh)

    If you keep staring at the sun, you won't see
    What you have become, this can't be
    Everything you thought it was
    Blinded by the thought of us, so
    Give me a chance, I will
    Fuck up again, I warned
    You in advance
    But you just keep on starin' at the sun

    Wait
    Got a couple little things I would like to say (oh yeah)
    Today is not your day
    You should walk away (oh yeah)
    But you won't listen, you just keep on (oh yeah)

    Staring at the sun, you won't see
    What you have become, this can't be
    Everything you thought it was
    Blinded by the thought of us, so
    Give me a chance, I will
    Fuck up again, I warned
    You in advance
    But you just keep on starin' at the sun Writer/s: Adam King Feeney, Austin Post, Louis Bell, Matthew Tavares, Seth Nyquist, Solana Rowe, William Walsh
