Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Hit the streets, city beat
I know what you want
Talk to me softly
French Restaurant
Every time I turn around
I look at you like "What now?"

I'm telling you it's all true

I'm talking to him while I'm thinking of you
I'm trying my best, I don't know what to do
I'm talking to you, don't know what it's about

I know they think that I have everything
If I can't have you then they can't have me
(I know it looks like I have everything)
But if I can't have you then they can't have me
(I know they think that I have everything)
Why am I crying on the balcony?
(I know it looks like I have everything)
If I can't have you then they can't have me
Honestly

Super cool, swimmin' blue
Will you paint me sweet?
Look at you painting cool in the garden
Every time I turn around
I look at you like "What now?"

Can't one single thing be just what it appears to be?

I'm talking to him while I'm thinking of you
I'm trying my best, I don't know what to do
I'm talking to you, don't know what it's about

I know they think that I have everything
If I can't have you then they can't have me
(I know it looks like I have everything)
But if I can't have you then they can't have me
(I know they think that I have everything)
Why am I crying on the balcony?
(I know it looks like I have everything)
If I can't have you then they can't have me
Honestly (yeah)

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I know they think I have everything
If I can't have you then they can't have me
I know it looks like I have everything
If I can't have you then they can't have me
