  • I know you want your money, girl
    'Cause you do this every day, okay
    The way you doubt your feelings
    And look the other way
    Well, it's something I relate to
    Your gift of nonchalance
    Nobody's ever made me fall in love
    With this amount of touch

    Well, I'm not a fool
    I just love that you're dead inside (That you're dead inside)
    I'm not a fool, I'm just lifeless too

    But you to taught me how to feel
    When nobody ever would (Nobody ever would)
    And you taught me how to love
    What nobody ever could

    Ooh girl, I know I should leave you
    And learn to mistreat you
    'Cause you belong to the world
    And ooh girl, I want to embrace you
    Domesticate you
    But you belong to the world, you belong to the world

    And I know that I'm saying too much
    Even though I'd rather hold my tongue, yeah
    And I'll pull you closer holding on to
    Every moment till my time is done, yeah
    And this ain't right, you've been the only one to make me smile
    In such long, I've succumbed to what I've become, baby

    I'm not a fool
    I just love that you're dead inside (that you're dead inside)
    I'm not a fool, I'm just lifeless too (I'm just lifeless too)

    But you to taught me how to feel (You taught me how to feel)
    When nobody ever would (Nobody ever would)
    And you taught me how to love (You taught me how to love)
    What nobody ever could

    Ooh girl, I should leave you (I know I should leave you)
    And learn to mistreat you (And learn to mistreat you)
    Because you belong to the world oh yeah
    And ooh girl, I wanna embrace you (I wanna embrace you)
    Domesticate you (Domesticate you)
    But, you belong to the world
    You belong to the world
    You belong to the world

    You belong to the loneliness of filling every need
    You belong to the world, you belong to the world
    You belong to the temporary moments of a dream

    Ooh girl, I know I should leave you
    And learn to mistreat you
    'Cause you belong to the world
    And ooh girl, I want to embrace you
    Domesticate you
    But you belong to the world, you belong to the world
    You belong to the world, you belong to the world
    You belong to the world Writer/s: Abel Tesfaye, Ahmad Balshe, Danny Schofield, Jason Matthew Quenneville
