  • Woah
    Woah

    Listen up I'm gonna' tell you a bit about myself
    I got a situation, ain't concerning nobody else
    Just you and what you can do for me
    (Ooh)

    I've had the life of ordinary, I spat it out
    Now my condition's kind of scary, I need you now
    Not love but I need something else

    So here's my confession (This time, this time)
    Don't just want you to love me
    I want to be your attention (This time, this time)
    Want my name on the Marquee

    I want you (To want me)
    I want you (To need me)
    I want you
    To hear my confession

    I want to be your obsession

    (Whoa)

    I'll fake sick, shy until you never let me go
    So I can be your addiction in the stereo
    I could be, just your type of high
    (I can give what you like)

    Your talkin' bout' the narcissist you met in Hollywood
    I'm lovin' myself, the word I need's for you to feel good (Let's go)
    Let the music just take control

    So here's my confession (This time, this time)
    Don't just want you to love me
    I want to be your attention (This time, this time)
    Want my name on the Marquee (Whoa)

    I want you (To want me)
    I want you (To need me)
    I want you
    To hear my confession

    I want to be your obsession
    I want to be your obsession

    Whoa
    Whoa
    Whoa

    Ain't nothing wrong with OCD
    Long as it's for me, long as it's for me

    Ain't nothing wrong with OCD
    Long as it's for me, long as it's for me

    Here's my confession (This time, this time)
    Don't just want you to love me
    I want to be your attention (This time, this time)
    Want my name on the Marquee (Whoa)

    I want you (To want me)
    I want you (To need me)
    I want you
    To hear my confession

    I want to be your obsession
    I want to be your obsession
    I want to be your obsession
