    Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
    Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
    (I kinda feel like it don't make sense)

    I'm thinking, baby, you and I are undeniable
    But I'm finding our loves unreliable
    I'm giving all I got to make you stay
    Or am I just a roadblock in your way?

    'Cause you're a pretty little windstorm out on the boulevard
    Something like a Sunset, oh you're a shooting star
    And I might drive myself insane
    If those lips aren't speaking my name

    'Cause I got some intuition,
    Or maybe I'm superstitious
    But I think you're a pretty sweet pill that I'm swallowing down
    To counter this addiction, you've got me on a mission
    Tell me darling, can I get a break somehow?
    (How) could I say no?

    She's got a love like woe
    Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh,
    Girls got a love like woe (la-da-da)
    I kinda feel like it don't make sense
    Because you're bringing me in and now you're kicking me out again
    Love so strong, then you moved on
    Now I'm hung up in suspense,
    Because you're bringing me in and then you're kicking me out again

    It's like a hurricane, speed train, she's a moving car
    Catch her in the fast lane, oh I gotta know,
    Can I keep up with her pace?
    Kick it into gear when I see that face

    You can take up all my time cause you're the only one
    That can make a storm cloud break, pulling out the sun
    And I can't get caught in the rain
    Can I get your lips to speak my name?

    'Cause I got some intuition,
    Or maybe I'm superstitious
    But I think you're a pretty sweet pill that I'm swallowing down
    To counter this addiction, you've got me on a mission
    Tell me darling, can I get a break somehow?
    (How) could I say no?

    She's got a love like woe
    Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh,
    Girls got a love like woe (la-da-da)
    I kinda feel like it don't make sense
    Because you're bringing me in and now you're kicking me out again
    Love so strong, then you moved on
    Now I'm hung up in suspense,
    Because you're bringing me in and then you're kicking me out again

    'Cause we only have one life
    The timing and the moment,
    All seem so right
    So would you say you're mine? (We'll be just fine)
    Would you say you're mine? (We'll be just fine)

    She's got a love like woe
    Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh,
    Girls got a love like woe (la-da-da)
    I kinda feel like it don't make sense
    Because you're bringing me in and now you're kicking me out again
    Love so strong, then you moved on
    Now I'm hung up in suspense,
    Because you're bringing me in and then you're kicking me out again

    She's got a love like woe
    Whoa-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh,
    Girls got a love like woe (la-da-da)
    I kinda feel like it don't make sense
    Because you're bringing me in and now you're kicking me out again
    Love so strong, then you moved on
    Now I'm hung up in suspense,
    Because you're bringing me in and then you're kicking me out again Writer/s: ANTHONY BEST, DOMINIC THOMAS, EARL BENJAMIN, HARVE PIERRE, JONATHAN ROTEM, JORDAN WITZIGREUTER, ROBERT ROSS
