Lyrics Edit

[Intro]
Ayy, ayy

[Chorus]
So you want me now? That's funny
'Cause you didn't give a... back then
Comin' back around, so sorry
'Cause there's no room in my bed
And I'm all good now, someone else is gettin' all of me (Ah)
If you wanted me so desperately, you shoulda said it

[Verse 1]
Show up at my door, but I don't live there anymore
Sendin' me our songs, but they don't really sound like before
I was crazy for you, all caught up and confused (Ah)
Love was broken for me, now it's broken for you

[Pre-Chorus]
You're only lonely
Now that you ain't the one to hold me
Only lonely now

[Chorus]
So you want me now? That's funny
'Cause you didn't give a... back then
Comin' back around, so sorry
'Cause there's no room in my bed
And I'm all good now, someone else is gettin' all of me (Ah)
If you wanted me so desperately, you shoulda said it

[Verse 2]
Isn't it somethin' that I get more when I'm givin' you nothin'? (Huh)
Isn't it magic that when you stop lookin' for it, it happens? (Oh)
Baby, he fell from grace, landed right in your place
Kissed me so many times that I forgot your taste

[Pre-Chorus]
You're only lonely
Now that you ain't the one to hold me
Only lonely now, now

[Chorus]
So you want me now? That's funny (Hey)
'Cause you didn't give a... back then
Comin' back around, so sorry
'Cause there's no room in my bed
And I'm all good now, someone else is gettin' all of me (Ah)
If you wanted me so desperately, you shoulda said it

[Post-Chorus]
You shoulda said it, love
Shoulda said it
Shoulda said it, love

[Bridge]
I wish that you could turn back the time
You'd hold me closer instead of your pride (Ooh, oh)
I knew it was you from the very first night
And it took you two years to make up your mind

[Chorus]
So you want me now? That's funny
'Cause you didn't give a... back then
Comin' back around, so sorry (Ayy)
'Cause there's no room in my bed
And I'm all good now, someone else is gettin' all of me (Ah)
If you wanted me so desperately, you shoulda said it (Ah)

[Post-Chorus]
You shoulda said it, love (Ah)
Shoulda said it (Oh)
You shoulda said it, love

[Outro]
So you want me now, now, baby?
So you want me now, now, baby?
So you want me now, now?
You shoulda said it, shoulda said it, love
