  • Turn it off, turn it on
    Like the vibrate on your phone
    Call me up, wanna talk
    Then you freeze me
    It's the same when you're gone
    Keep me guessing what you want
    But my heart says it's you who can please me
    I get pushed to extremes
    And I should know what it means
    But I can't bear the game, to be over
    When you're moves never change
    Only got myself to blame
    Cause I fall for it over and over

    You're like my first bad habit
    I can't live without it
    I can't give you up, give you up
    And even though you're trouble
    I come back for double
    I can't say, "Enough is enough"
    I'm a part of you
    You're a part of me
    And I know it's wrong
    But I can't get free
    You're like my first bad habit
    How am I gonna give you up?

    You're the worst, you're the best
    Something different from the rest
    It's a fact, seeing you is never easy
    Like my style, hate my friends
    Oh, the conflict never ends
    How much worse can it get when you tease me?

    I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
    The way we go around
    Can't put my first bad habit down
    I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
    The way we go around
    I just can't give you up

    You're like my first bad habit
    I can't live without it
    I can't give you up, give you up
    And even though you're trouble
    I come back for double
    I can't say enough is enough
    I'm a part of you
    You're a part of me
    And I know it's wrong
    But I can't get free
    You're like my first bad habit
    How am I gonna give you up?

    Turn it off, turn it on
    O-off, off, on on
    Keep me guessing what you want
    Guessing, guessing what you want
    Turn it off, turn it on
    O-off, off, on on
    Keep me guessing what you want
    Guessing, guessing what you want

    You're like my first bad habit
    I can't live without it
    I can't give you up, give you up
    And even though you're trouble
    I come back for double
    I can't say enough is enough
    I'm a part of you
    You're a part of me
    And I know it's wrong
    But I can't get free
    You're like my first bad habit
    How am I gonna give you up? Writer/s: Cathy Dennis, Lukasz Gottwald
