  • I've been trying to make sense
    I've been shouting under my breath
    How's in the opposite of my interest
    You sold me out, a massive knock off the chair
    Your lust is a lie, but it comes as no surprise
    Time after time, it goes right past the line
    I do my best to, to make amends with you
    But I just can't see the end oh

    Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R

    Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R
    Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless, and you're defenseless

    And isn't it funny how
    Those black clouds follow you around?
    It's Karma smiling down
    Just let me know when it's in town
    You act like the world owes you a favor
    You want it all but you don't like the taste, oh
    You've been throwing bricks at my window
    Like there's no better way to say hello
    Hello

    Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R
    Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless, and you're defenseless

    The best, you never had
    The best, you never had
    The best, you never had
    The best, you never had

    I'm the devil on your shoulder
    I'm the conscious in your mind
    I'm the feeling that you, you cannot hide
    I'm the devil on your shoulder
    Doesn't mean that love is blind
    It's OK when it's Satan in disguise
    Your loose lips let, let a word slide
    You spend too much time talking about my life
    Stories spin just for a power trip
    It's safe to say that I am not into it
    In the picture you were not
    Someone is in your spot
    This is the result of people moving on
    Good luck with killing time
    You won't be killing mine
    I'll do my best
    To always be on your mind
    Your mind

    I never once said I didn't mean this
    I can't wait to see how this one gets out
    You are the first to question my achievements
    But that's all right, my dreams are living

    Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R

    Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R
    Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless, and you're defenseless

    The best, you never had
    The best, you never had
    The best, you never had
    The best, you never had Writer/s: CHRIS MILLER, DAN FLINT, JOSH FRANCESCHI, MATT BARNES, MAX HELYER
