Want You Back Lyrics

[Verse 1: Maisie Peters]
I was treading water till the minute we met
Till you caught a teacher's daughter with a dangerous text
I read it like a Bible and I wore it like a bulletproof vest
Found myself a lover that made everything rhyme
Slept under your covers, it made everything right
Yeah, I was the DJ and the darling of your passenger side

[Chorus: Maisie Peters]
So, I know that you did bad
But, if one more person says it, I might go mad
Yeah, I know it didn't last
And what was cheap to you, to me, was all I had
Thе issue is, I know all of this and I
I still want you back
I still want you back

[Verse 2: Maisie Peters]
Found yourself a lover
I bеt she doesn't sing
But baby, when you touch her
I bet she doesn't flinch
She'll have you every summer
When I only had you half of the spring
You left like an assassin
Maybe that's for the best
'Cause if you told me what would happen
I think I would've begged
So you gotta be a coward and
I salvaged a little self-respect

[Chorus: Maisie Peters]
Yeah, I know that you did bad
But, if one more person says it, I might go mad
Yeah, I know it didn't last
And what was cheap to you, to me, was all I had
The issue is, I know all of this and I
I still want you back

[Bridge: Maisie Peters]
I'm not allowed to want you any longer
I must go out with a stranger
I must kiss him to get stronger
So I don't tell a soul that I'd be yours again tomorrow
If you wanted, but you don't wanna

[Chorus: Maisie Peters]
So, I know that you did bad
But, if one more person says it, I might go mad
It wasn't real, it was for me, but you know that
And I bet you've thrown away our photographs
The issue is, I know all of this and I
I still want you back

[Outro: Maisie Peters]
Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm
I still want you back
Mm, mm, mm, mm, mm
I still want you back
