  • You're not on my list of things to do
    'Cause I've already done you
    And I'm protective, it's so cute
    And only when it suits you
    And is this all in vain?
    Can these words explain?

    Desperate minds mean desperate measures
    We've gotta keep this one together
    You're young and in love
    That should be enough

    At least you'll have nice thoughts of me
    When I'm cheating on you in your dreams
    I told you before, my closet's clean
    And that these bones don't belong to me

    Try this one for size
    Try me one more time
    You hold me down by keeping me around

    Desperate minds mean desperate measures
    We've gotta keep this one together
    You're young and in love
    That should be enough

    Desperate minds mean desperate measures
    We've gotta keep this one together
    You're young and in love
    That should be enough

    You hold me down by keeping me around
    And no one takes me home
    No one takes me home
    You hold me down by keeping me around
    And no one takes me home
    No one takes me home

    Desperate minds mean desperate measures
    We've gotta keep this one together
    You're young and in love
    That should be enough

    Young and in love (that should be, that should be enough)
    Young and in love (that should be, that should be enough) Writer/s: CHRIS MILLER, DAN FLINT, JOSH FRANCESCHI, MATT BARNES, MAX HELYER
