  • What makes a grown man wanna cry?
    (Cry, cry, cry, cry)
    What makes him wanna take his life?
    Ah, oh (ah)
    His happiness is never real
    (Real, real, real, real)
    And mindless sex is how he feels, ooh, he feels

    When it's time, when it's time, when it's time
    It won't matter (it don't matter)
    It won't matter (matter)
    When it's time, when it's time, when it's time (time, it's time, babe)
    It won't matter (it won't matter, babe)
    It won't matter (yeah)
    It was like I was never there
    (It was like I was never there)
    It was like he was gone in thin air (no)
    When it's time, when it's time, when it's time (oh, baby)
    It won't matter (it won't matter, babe) it won't matter

    When it's time, when it's time, when it's time
    It won't matter, it won't matter
    When it's time, when it's time, when it's time
    It won't matter, it won't matter
    It was like I was never there
    It was like he was gone in thin air
    When it's time, when it's time, when it's time
    It won't matter, it won't matter

    (When it's time, when it's time, when it's time)
    (It won't matter, it won't matter)
    (When it's time, when it's time, when it's time)
    (It won't matter, it won't matter)

    Ooh, and now I know what love is
    And I know it ain't you for sure
    You'd rather something toxic
    So, I'll poison myself again, again
    'Til I feel nothing
    In my soul (in my soul)
    I'm on the edge of something breakin'
    I feel my mind is slowly fadin'
    If I keep goin', I won't make it
    If I keep goin', I won't make it

    And it's all because of you
    It's all because of you
    It's all because of you
    It's all because of you
    Whoa, whoa (when it's time, when it's time, when it's time)
    Don't you, baby, hey (it won't matter, it won't matter)
    It won't matter, baby (when it's time, when it's time, when it's time)
    Don't you know? (it won't matter)
    Don't you know? (it won't matter)
    Ooh, oh, hey
    (When it's time, when it's time, when it's time)
    (It won't matter, whoa-oh) Writer/s: Abel Tesfaye, Adam Feeney, Mike Lévy
