Song Lyrics

Honestly, I don’t care
I’m happy you’re here
I’m tryna make you smile for a while now
I’m like, “Oh my God, you’re so beautiful”
Why don’t you come over and have it?
Why don’t you let me have it all?

I did a lot of dumb shh
A lot of things I wish I didn’t do, aye
Baby, come back, won’t you?
Babe, come back, he-ey
Whole world crazy
Is it crazy to love you?
Baby, come back, won’t you?
Babe, come back

You said you’re still too mad ’bout them things I did
But I don’t know what I did, my baby, yeah
You said you gained a few pounds, you blame the apocalypse
There ain’t no apocalypse
Long as you’re here on my lips

Honеstly, I don’t care
I’m happy you’re herе
I’m tryna make you smile for a while now
I’m like, “Oh my God, you’re so beautiful”
Why don’t you come over and have it?
Why don’t you let me have it all?

You’ve been home too long
I’ve been home too long, yeah
We both need to feel love, nothing wrong with that
Můžeš být u mě klidně mužem dělat jakoby

There ain’t no apocalypse
Long as you’re here on my lips

Honestly, I don’t care
I’m happy you’re here
I’m tryna make you smile for a while now
I’m like, “Oh my God, you’re so beautiful”
Why don’t you come over and have it?
Why don’t you let me have it?

Like oh my God, oh my God
You’re so beautiful
Oh my God, oh my God
Why don’t you let me have it?

You said you’re still too mad ’bout them things I did
But I don’t know what I did (What I did, what I did)
You said you gained a few pounds, you blame the apocalypse
There ain’t no apocalypse
Long as you’re here on my lips

Honestly, I don’t care
I’m happy you’re here
I’m tryna make you smile for a while now
I’m like, “Oh my God, you’re so beautiful”
Why don’t you come over and have it?
Why don’t you let me have it?

Like oh my God, oh my God
You’re so beautiful
Oh my God, oh my God
Why don’t you let me have it?

Oh my God, oh my God
You’re so beautiful
Oh my God, oh my God (Yeah)
Why don’t you let me?
