  • I wanna be your endgame
    I wanna be your first string
    I wanna be your A-Team
    I wanna be your endgame, endgame

    Big reputation, big reputation
    Ooh you and me we got big reputations, ah
    And you heard about me, ooh
    I got some big enemies

    Big reputation, big reputation
    Ooh you and me would be a big conversation, ah
    And I heard about you, ooh
    You like the bad ones too

    You so dope, don't overdose
    I'm so stoked, I need a toast
    We do the most
    I'm in the Ghost like I'm whippin' a boat
    I got a reputation girl, that don't precede me
    I'm one call away, whenever you need me
    I'm in a G5
    Come to the A side
    I got a bad boy persona that's what they like
    You love it
    I love it too 'cause you my type
    You hold me down and I protect you with my life

    I don't wanna touch you (I don't wanna be)
    Just anther ex-love (You don't wanna see)
    I don't wanna miss you (I don't wanna miss you)
    Like the other girls do
    I don't wanna hurt you (I just wanna be)
    Drinkin' on a beach with (You all over me)
    I know what they all say (I know what they all say)
    But I ain't tryna play

    I wanna be your endgame
    I wanna be your first string
    I wanna be your A Team
    I wanna be your endgame, endgame

    Knew her when I was young
    Reconnected when we were little bit older
    Both sprung, I got issues and chips on both of my shoulders
    Reputation precedes me, in rumors I'm knee deep
    The truth is it's easier to ignore it, believe me
    Even when we'd argue, we don't do it for long
    And you understand the good and bad, end up in the song
    For all your beautiful traits, and the way you do it with ease
    For all my flaws, paranoia, and insecurities
    I've made mistakes, and made some choices that's hard to deny
    After the storm, something was born on the fourth of July
    I've passed days without fun, this endgame is the one
    With four words on the tip of my tongue, I'll never say

    I don't wanna touch you (I don't wanna be)
    Just anther ex-love (You don't wanna see)
    I don't wanna miss you (I don't wanna miss you)
    Like the other girls do
    I don't wanna hurt you (I just wanna be)
    Drinkin' on a beach with (You all over me)
    I know what they all say
    But I ain't tryna play

    I wanna be your endgame
    I wanna be your first string
    I wanna be your A Team
    I wanna be your endgame, endgame

    Big reputation, big reputation
    Ooh you and me we got big reputations, ahh
    And you heard about me, ooh
    I got some big enemies

    Big reputation, big reputation
    Ooh you and me would be a big conversation, ahh
    And I heard about you, ooh
    You like the bad ones too

    I hit you like bang
    We tried to forget it, but we just couldn't
    And I bury hatchets but I keep maps of where I put 'em
    Reputation precedes me, they told you I'm crazy
    I swear I don't love the drama, it loves me
    And I can't let you go, your hand print's on my soul
    It's like your eyes are liquor, it's like your body is gold
    You've been calling my bluff on all my usual tricks
    So here's the truth from my red lips

    I wanna be your endgame
    I wanna be your first string
    I wanna be your A Team
    I wanna be your endgame, endgame

    I wanna be your endgame
    I wanna be your first string
    I wanna be your A Team
    I wanna be your endgame, endgame Writer/s: Edward Christopher Sheeran, Johan Karl Schuster, Max Martin, Nayvadius Wilburn, Taylor Swift
