  • I know this me and you thing
    Is a new thing
    And I'd be lying if I said this is what I was looking for
    I kinda can't stop thinking
    That leaving is the last thing I wanna be doing right now for sure

    Maybe I'll oversleep
    And miss my flight
    My alarm went off at 6:05
    But I never heard it
    Accidentally on purpose

    Maybe I'd lay you with just like this
    And give you one more goodbye kiss
    And slip those three little words in
    Accidentally on purpose

    I never thought you'd call
    So, I guess it's your fault
    I wasn't trying to fall
    But you and my heart were making other plans
    But here I am crazy about you
    Not ready for a day without you
    Here I am saying 'what the hell?'
    Wide awake telling myself

    Maybe I'll oversleep
    And miss my flight
    My alarm went off at 6:05
    But I never heard it
    Accidentally on purpose

    Maybe I'd lay you with just like this
    And give you one more goodbye kiss
    And slip those three little words in
    Accidentally on purpose

    What if I stay?
    What would you say?

    I know this me and you thing
    Is a new thing
    But leaving is the last thing I wanna be doing right now

    Maybe I'll oversleep
    And miss my flight
    My alarm went off at 6:05
    But I never heard it
    Accidentally on purpose

    Maybe I'll lay you with just like this
    And give you one more goodbye kiss
    And slip those three little words in
    Accidentally on purpose

    What if I stay?
