Drown Lyrics

[Intro: Justin Timberlake]
Drown, drown
Drown

[Verse 1: Justin Timberlake]
Surface
Shoulda known your love was nothing but the surface
I'm in the deep and I can't fight the current
Trying to keep my head above it

[Pre-Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
And you've been begging me to stay, to stay
And I've been tryna be your way, your way
But it's about to break 'cause

[Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
You showed me exactly who you are and I should've believed it (Believed it)
You left me alone out in the dark with all of your demons (Demons)
Got caught up in the tide of all the tears you cried
Yeah, you know I was blinded by my heart, sinking from the start
Should'vе never followed you this far, now I'm in thе deep end
And you let me drown
You didn't even try to save me

[Verse 2: Justin Timberlake]
Heard about heartbreak with the wrong light
And now the pain just magnifies
I know exactly what it feels like
Yeah, you do it to me every time
And if real love never dies
How am I barely breathing?
Here on my own
Out in the deep end
Way down below
Way down below all of your lies

[Pre-Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
And you keep begging me to stay, to stay (Stay)
I'm outta tryna be your way, your way
But it's about to break 'cause

[Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
You showed me exactly who you are and I should've believed it (Should've believed it)
You left me alone out in the dark with all of your demons (Demons)
Got caught up in the tide of all the tears you cried
Yeah, you know I was blinded by my heart, sinking from the start
Should've never followed you this far, now I'm in the deep end
And you let me drown
You didn't even try to save me
You let me drown
You didn't even try to save me

[Bridge: Justin Timberlake]
But sometimes (Sometimes I)
Sometimes I sit and fantasize (Fantasize)
Maybe sometime in another life (Another life)
We could've got it right, got it right (Got it right)
Oh, yeah (Maybe)
Maybe sometime in another life (Another life)
I'll see your face in a new light (New light)
And your eyes say, "I love you"

[Pre-Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
You've been begging me to stay, to stay
And I've been tryna be your way, your way

[Chorus: Justin Timberlake]
You let me drown
You didn't even try to save me
You let me drown
You didn't even try to save me
You let me drown
You didn't even try to save me
You let me drown
You didn't even try to save me

[Outro: Justin Timberlake]
It's about to break
It's about to break
It's about to break (Break, break, break, break)
Break, break
It's about to break
(Drown, drown)
(Drown, drown)
