Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
Something must've gone wrong in my brain
Got your chemicals all in my veins
Feeling all the highs, feeling all the pain
Let go of the wheel, it’s the bullet lane
Now I’m seeing red, not thinking straight
Blurring all the lines, you intoxicate me

[Pre-Chorus]
Just like nicotine, heroine, morphine
Suddenly, I’m a fiend and you’re all I need
All I need, yeah, all I need

[Chorus]
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit, you will know I’ll never be the same
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit, you will know I’ll never ever, ever be the same

[Post-Chorus]
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same

[Verse 2]
Sneaking in L.A. when the lights are low
Off of one touch, I could overdose
You said, "stop playing it safe, girl, I wanna see you lose control"

[Pre-Chorus]
Just like nicotine, heroine, morphine
Suddenly, I’m a fiend and you’re all I need
All I need, ooh, yeah, you're all I need

[Chorus]
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one girl, you will know I’ll never be the same
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit, you will know I’ll never ever, ever be the same

[Post-Chorus]
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same

[Bridge]
You're in my blood, you're in my veins, you're in my head
You're in my blood, you're in my veins, you're in my head
You're in my blood, you're in my veins, you're in my head
You're in my blood, you're in my veins, you're in my head

[Chorus]
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit, you will know I’ll never be the same
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit, you will know I’ll never ever, ever be the same

[Outro]
Just one hit, you will know I’ll never ever, ever be the same

[Verse 1]
Something must've gone wrong in my brain
Got your chemicals all in my veins
Feeling all the highs, feel all the pain
Let go of the wheel, it's the borderline
Now I’m seeing red, not thinking straight
Blurring all the lines, you intoxicate me

[Pre-Chorus]
Just like nicotine, rushin' me, touching me
Suddenly, I’m a fiend and you’re all I need
All I need, yeah, you're all I need

[Chorus]
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit and you will know I’ll never be the same
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit and you will know I’ll never ever, ever be the same
I'll never be the same
I'll never be the same
I'll never be the same

[Verse 2]
Sneaking in L.A when the lights are low
Off of one touch I could overdose
He said, "Stop playing it safe, girl, I wanna see you lose control"

[Pre-Chorus]
Just like nicotine, rushin' me, touching me
Suddenly, I’m a fiend and you’re all I need
All I need, yeah, you're all I need

[Chorus]
It's you, babe
And I'm a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You're to blame
Just one hit and you will know I'll never be the same
It's you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit and you will know I’ll never ever, ever be the same
I'll never be the same
I'll never be the same
I'll never be the same

[Bridge]
You're in my blood, you're in my veins, you're in my head
You're in my blood, you're in my veins, you're in my head

[Chorus]
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit and you will know I’ll never be the same
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit and you will know I’ll never ever, ever be the same
