  • You know me
    Now and then, I'm a mess
    Please don't hold that against me
    I'm a girl with a temper and heat
    I know I can be crazy

    But I'm not just a fuck-up, I'm the fuck-up you need
    I don't hear nobody when you focus on me
    Perfectly imperfect, yeah, I hope that you see
    Tell me you see
    'Cause I know that you've been thinking 'bout it

    Don't leave
    Shut your mind off and let your heart breathe
    You don't need to be worried
    I may not ever get my shit together
    But ain't nobody gonna love you better
    Don't go
    What we have here is irreplaceable
    No, I won't trade this for nothing
    I may not ever get my shit together
    But ain't nobody gonna love you better than me, yeah
    Love you better than me

    In a room full of people with you
    I don't see anybody else, no
    When we fight, and you're right
    So sorry, I make it just so difficult

    But I'm not just a fuck-up, I'm the fuck-up you love
    We ain't like nobody else, tell me so what
    Perfectly imperfect, yeah, baby, that's us
    Baby, that's us
    'Cause I know that you've been thinking 'bout it

    Don't leave
    Shut your mind off and let your heart breathe
    You don't need to be worried
    I may not ever get my shit together
    But ain't nobody gonna love you better
    Don't go
    What we have here is irreplaceable
    No, I won't trade this for nothing
    I may not ever get my shit together
    But ain't nobody gonna love you better

    Sitting in the living room
    You look at me, I stare at you
    I see the doubt, I see the love
    I have and it is all for you
    Let me wrap myself around you, baby
    Let me tell you you are everything, you are
    Losing my words, I don't know where to start

    But baby, don't leave me
    Shut your mind off and let your heart hear me
    I won't trade this for nothing
    I may not ever get my shit together
    But ain't nobody gonna love you better

    Don't leave
    Shut your mind off and let your heart breathe
    You don't need to be worried
    I may not ever get my shit together
    But ain't nobody gonna love you better
    (There ain't nobody gonna love you better than me)
    Don't go
    What we have here is irreplaceable
    No, I won't trade this for nothing
    I may not ever get my shit together
    But ain't nobody gonna love you better than me, yeah
    Love you better than me Writer/s: Anderson Maren, David James, Joe Janiak, Negin Djafari, Oliver Dickinson, Rachel Agatha Keen
