Ahead of Myself

  • Thought I was ready, ready for someone else
    But every time I get ahead of myself
    Every time I get ahead of myself
    Thought I was rock steady
    But that I didn't need no help
    But every time I get ahead of myself
    Every time I get ahead of myself

    Guess I went ahead and jumped the gun again
    Some shitty situation that I put you in
    And I know we poured champagne
    Maybe we was just too quick to celebrate

    I thought I was ready, ready for someone else
    But every time I get ahead of myself
    Every time I get ahead of myself
    Thought I was rock steady, that I didn't need no help
    But every time I get ahead of myself
    Every time I get ahead of my

    I get ahead of myself, yeah babe
    I get ahead of myself, yeah babe

    Know that I was first to say, "I love you, babe"
    Moved my things to your apartment down on 2nd Street
    I thought I'd cleaned the slate
    But I guess I didn't clean it all away

    I thought I was ready, ready for someone else
    But every time I get ahead of myself
    Every time I get ahead of myself
    Thought I was rock steady
    That I didn't need no help
    But every time I get ahead of myself
    Every time I get ahead of my

    Get ahead of myself, yeah babe
    Get ahead of myself, yeah baby
    Get ahead of myself, yeah babe
    Get ahead of myself, yeah babe, yeah babe
    Get ahead of myself
    I get ahead of myself

    I thought I was ready, ready for someone else
    But every time I get ahead of myself
    Every time I get ahead of myself
    Thought I was rock steady
    That I didn't need no help
    But every time I get ahead of myself
    Every time I get ahead of my

    Get ahead of myself, yeah babe
    Get ahead of myself, yeah baby
    Get ahead of myself, yeah babe
    Get ahead of myself, yeah babe, yeah babe Writer/s: ADAM LEVIN, CASEY HARRIS, SAMUEL NELSON HARRIS, SCOTT HARRIS FRIEDMAN
