[Verse 1]
You've been out here tryna work on me for a minute
Fall in love for a minute
You've been tryna see me through the problems
But everything you're sayin' is the problem
You keep tryna make me slow down for a minute
When I just wanna drown for a minute
You can take advantage
But you're taking chances

[Pre-Chorus]
And I'm so glad you took it
So glad you took it
Cheap shot, caught me when I wasn't looking for you
Shots in the dark, got me following your heart
Cheap shot, got me taking cheap shots
Why are you taking cheap shots?

[Chorus]
Drinking, smoking, doses, potions
Got me doing things I ain't do
Got me doing things I ain't do, true
Drinking, smoking, doses, emotions
Somethin' 'bout the pain mixed with you
Got me doing things, I ain't doing right


[Verse 2]
I've been overthinking
Tryna make the wrong one right for no reason
I was cold for a minute
Blind to the feeling, but you did it, now we're in it

[Pre-Chorus]
And I'm so glad you took it (So glad)
So glad you took it (Cheap shots)
Cheap shot, caught me when I wasn't looking for you
Shots in the dark (Shots in the dark)
Got me following your heart (Following your heart, yeah)
Cheap shot, got me taking cheap shots (So cheap, yeah)
Why are you taking cheap shots?

[Chorus]
Drinking, smoking, doses, potions
You know you got me doing things I ain't do
You know you got me doing things I ain't do, true
Drinking, smoking, doses, emotions
Somethin' 'bout the pain mixed with you
Got me doing things, I ain't doing right, true

[Post-Chorus]
And it ain't really what it seems
But what it seems is what it looks like (True)
And you can never call me yours
But can call me when you feel like it
Drinking, smoking, doses, no emotions
Somethin' 'bout the pain mixed with you
Got me doing things, I ain't doing right


[Verse 3]
It's so hard to admit all the changes
Stuck in the same system for ages
I'm just tryna take a hold of what's left of me
It can't get the best of me
It's amazing what little lies can do
They're just pieces, but they devour you
I'm a monster just tryna vibe with you
So come over if you want but you can never call me yours when we're

[Chorus]
Drinking, smoking, doses, potions
Somethin' 'bout the pain mixed with you
You know you got me doing things I ain't do
You know you got me doing things I ain't do, true
Drinking, smoking, doses, emotions
Somethin' 'bout the pain mixed with you
Got me doing things, I ain't doing right, true

[Post-Chorus]
And it ain't really what it seems
But what it seems is what it looks like (True)
And you can never call me yours
But can call me when you feel like it
Drinking, smoking, doses, no emotions
Somethin' 'bout the pain mixed with you
Got me doing things, I ain't doing right (True)


[Outro]
True, got me doing things, I ain't doing right (True)
True, got me doing things, I ain't doing right (True)
Got me doing things, I ain't doing right
