Want It Back

Heart's on a string like an older-fashioned phone-can
Bang, ringy-ring and you think you're gonna get some
Thing you can bring to a party at your wake
Not thinking of the thing that you pay back when you take it
Take it

Like rats in a cage pushed the button, got the shock trick
Snickers in your bag, had your number, but I lost it
Bets are all off, you're a lily-livered giver
Indie in the hidden costs, you're a sucker and you win

It doesn’t matter if you want it back
You've given it away
You've given it away
It doesn't matter if you want it back
You've given it away, away, away, away, away, away, oh

He's already on the outskirts
I'm still pulling at his sweatshirt
He says fate is not a factor
I'm in love with every actor

So

Once when you're gone and I wanna do it backwards
Just like the song, we're addicted to the L word
Up past your head, down your back around your ankles
Ready for attack, you're upstaged and then you're strangled

Cringe like you're cursed with your wrecking ball-y necklace
I saw it first, and I crushed it with my ham fist
High for the contest, who's the better not see
Eye to eye to eye and now you're blind and you can't catch me
Catch me if you can

(He's already on the outskirts)
If you can
(I'm still pulling on his sweatshirt)
If you can
(He says fate is not a factor)
If you can
(I'm in love with every actor)

It doesn't matter if you want it back
You've given it away
You've given it away
It doesn't matter if you want it back
You've given it away
You've given it away

It doesn't matter if you want it back
You've given it away
You've given it away
It doesn't matter if you want it back
You've given it away, away, away, away, away, away

He's already on the outskirts
I'm still pulling at his sweatshirt
He says fate is not a factor
I'm in love with every actor

He's already on the outskirts
I'm still pulling at his sweatshirt
He says fate is not a factor
I'm in love with every actor

I will let you go if you will let some
I will let you go if you will let somebody
I will let you go if you will let somebody love you
I will let you go if you will let somebody love you like
I will let you go if you will let somebody love you like I do
