  • Don't cry, or do whatever makes you feel comfortable
    I'm tired, too
    There's nothin' left to say, let's call a truce
    'Cause I don't really wanna go to bed like this

    I'm so sorry
    That we're still stuck in the middle
    I'm so sorry
    'Cause in the moment I

    I don't know what it's like to be you
    I don't know what it's like but I'm dying to
    If I could put myself in your shoes
    Then I know what it's like to be you

    Can I kiss you or not?
    'Cause I'm not really sure right now of what you want
    Are you still mad at me? I'm hopin' not
    'Cause maybe we could go to the movies
    I know that always cheers us up, hey

    I'm so sorry
    Though we're still stuck in the middle
    Yeah, I'm so sorry
    'Cause in the moment I

    I don't know what it's like to be you
    I don't know what it's like but I'm dying to
    If I could put myself in your shoes
    Then I know what it's like to be you

    Tell me what's inside of your head
    No matter what you say I won't love you less
    And I'd be lying if I said that I do

    I don't know what it's like to be you
    I don't know what it's like to be you

    I get worried
    I might lose you a little
    Every time we
    Every time we argue and get caught up in the moment

    I don't know what it's like to be you
    I don't know what it's like but I'm dying to
    If I could put myself in your shoes
    Then I know what it's like to be you

    So tell me what's inside of your head
    No matter what you say I won't love you less
    And I'd be lying if I said that I do

    I don't know what it's like to be you
    I don't know what it's like to be you
    I don't know what it's like Writer/s: Julia Michaels, Scott Harris, Shawn Mendes
