Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I was walking down the street the other day Tryna distract myself But then I see your face Oh wait, that's someone else Tryna play it coy Tryna make it disappear But just like the battle of Troy There's nothing subtle here In my room there's a king size space Bigger than it used to be If you want you can rent that place Call me an amenity Even if it's in my dreams

[Pre-Chorus] Ooh you're taking up a fraction of my mind Ooooh every time I watch you serpentine

[Chorus] Oh I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin' I'm tryin', I'm tryin' Oh tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin' I'm tryin', I'm tryin' Not to think about you No, no, no, no Not to think about you No, no, no, no Oh I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin' I'm tryin', I'm tryin' Oh tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin' I'm tryin', I'm tryin' Not to give in to you No, no, no, no Not to give in to you No, no, no, no

[Post-Chorus] With my feelings on fire Guess I'm a bad liar

[Verse 2] I see how your attention builds It's like looking in a mirror Your touch like a happy pill But still all we do is fear What could possibly happen next? Can we focus on the love? Paint my kiss across your chest Be the art, I'll be the brush

[Pre-Chorus] Ooh you're taking up a fraction of my mind Ooooh every time I watch you serpentine

[Chorus] Oh I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin' I'm tryin', I'm tryin' Oh tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin' I'm tryin', I'm tryin' Not to think about you No, no, no, no Not to think about you No, no, no, no Oh I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin' I'm tryin', I'm tryin' Oh tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin' I'm tryin', I'm tryin' Not to give in to you No, no, no, no Not to give in to you No, no, no, no

[Post-Chorus] With my feelings on fire Guess I'm a bad liar

[Bridge] And oh baby let's make reality, actuality, a reality Oh baby let's make reality, actuality, a reality

[Chorus] Oh, oh, I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin' I'm tryin', I'm tryin' Oh tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin' I'm tryin', I'm tryin' Not to think about you No, no, no, no Not to think about you No, no, no, no Oh I'm tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin' I'm tryin', I'm tryin' Oh tryin', I'm tryin', I'm tryin' I'm tryin', I'm tryin' Not to give in to you No, no, no, no Not to give in to you No, no, no, no

[Post-Chorus] With my feelings on fire

Guess I'm a bad liar
