LyricsEdit

Why you so uptight? What's the problem?
Everybody knows you're doing it anyway
Why you act so uptight when you got so much?
You could be sending it my way
Those guys were cool
But you'd never give yourself away
And I'm not a fool, no
"I love you," I say

He had all his guns and all his guns were blazing
Put his arms around me, so amazing
He had all his guns and all his guns were blazing
Put his arms around me, so amazing
Amazing
Amazing
Amazing

He'd call me the serene queen
(Come on, baby; if you want it, you can get it right...)
The serene queen
(Come on, baby; if you want it, you can get it right...)
The serene queen
(Come on, baby; if you want it, you can get it right now)
I don’t start fights but I’ll stop 'em all by any means

Why you so upset? What's the problem?
Everybody knows you're doing it anyway
Why you act so tough when you got so much
Going for you already?
Those guys were cool
But you never gave yourself away
Baby, it's true
You I'd never betray

He had all his guns and all his guns were blazing
Put his arms around me, so amazing
He had all his guns and all his guns were blazing
Put his arms around me, so amazing
Amazing
Amazing
Amazing

He'd call me the serene queen
(Come on, baby; if you want it, you can get it right...)
The serene queen
(Come on, baby; if you want it, you can get it right...)
The serene queen
(Come on, baby; if you want it, you can get it right now)
I don’t start fights but I’ll stop 'em all by any means

"You think too much, you dream too much"
"You think too much, you dream too much"
"You think too much, you dream too much,
But what a beautiful mind" - he said

He had all his guns and all his guns were blazing
He never gave himself away
He had all his guns and all his guns were blazing
I'd never betray

He'd call me the serene queen
(Come on, baby; if you want it, you can get it right...)
The serene queen
(Come on, baby; if you want it, you can get it right...)
The serene queen
(Come on, baby; if you want it, you can get it right now)
I don’t start fights but I’ll stop 'em all by any means
