‘Bad Habits’ Lyrics

Make me crazy, don’t speak no sound
I want you to prove it to me in the nude,
Addicted to the way you move
Honey if anything ever should change in you,
Don’t worry I’m standing still
I’ll move in with the right of will

CHORUS:
This is the highest cost, take you and make you off
Love you and leave you lost, will you forgive me
Assed out all over town, drags you and keeps you down
Two times in a day around, will you forgive me

I can’t control the feeling, girl cause I know you’re here
I feel you from the floor to the ceiling; I wanna give it to you over there
Lady when we lock it low, we get together it’s an overdose
I’m slipping, I’m here, I’m on my knees I feels my heart’s about to explode

CHORUS

Baby to tell the truth, when I’m sober I jones for you
When it’s over I’m overdue, girl there’s no-one as bad, no-one as bad as you
You got me slippin’ around with it, around with it, oh why
You got me sick with this love baby, I’m so I’m so in love I can’t come down

CHORUS

You’re my bad habit baby, you’re my
You’re takin’ my soul down to the letter O
Can’t escape the way you got me locked out baby
I gotta break from you, break from you, break from you

CHORUS

Will you forgive me
Will you forgive me
Will you forgive me
Will you forgive me

CHORUS

I can’t control the feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling
I can’t control the feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling
I can’t control the feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling
I can’t control the feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling
