  • This ain't for the best
    My reputation's never been worse, so
    You must like me for me

    Dive bar on the East Side, where you at?
    Phone lights up my nightstand in the black
    Come here, you can meet me in the back

    Dark jeans and your Nikes, look at you
    Oh damn, never seen that color blue
    Just think of the fun things we could do
    'Cause I like you

    This ain't for the best
    My reputation's never been worse, so
    You must like me for me

    Yeah, I want you
    We can't make
    Any promises now, can we, babe?
    But you can make me a drink

    Is it cool that I said all that?
    Is it chill that you're in my head?
    'Cause I know that it's delicate ('cause I know that it's delicate)

    Is it cool that I said all that
    Is it too soon to do this yet?
    'Cause I know that it's delicate
    Isn't it? Isn't it?
    Isn't it?
    Isn't it? Isn't it?
    Isn't it?
    Isn't it?
    Isn't it?
    Isn't it? Isn't it?
    Isn't it?
    Delicate

    Third floor on the West Side, me and you
    Handsome, your mansion with a view
    Do the girls back home touch you like I do?
    Long night, with your hands up in my hair
    Echoes of your footsteps on the stairs
    Stay here, honey, I don't wanna share

    Yeah, I want you
    We can't make
    Any promises now, can we, babe?
    But you can make me a drink

    Is it cool that I said all that?
    Is it chill that you're in my head?
    'Cause I know that it's delicate ('cause I know that it's delicate)

    Is it cool that I said all that
    Is it too soon to do this yet?
    'Cause I know that it's delicate
    Isn't it? Isn't it?
    Isn't it?
    Isn't it? Isn't it?
    Isn't it?
    Delicate
    Isn't it?
    Isn't it?
    Isn't it? Isn't it?
    Isn't it?
    Delicate

    Is it cool that I said all that
    Is it too soon to do this yet?
    'Cause I know that it's delicate
    Delicate
    Isn't it? Isn't it?
    Isn't it?
    Isn't it? Isn't it?
    Isn't it?
    Delicate
    Yeah I want you
    Isn't it?
    Isn't it? Isn't it?
    Isn't it?
