Lyrics[]

[Intro]
Back to you, back to you, back to you
Back to you, back to you, back to you
I go back to you, back to you, back to you every time

[Verse 1]
I get tired of your no-shows (No-shows)
You get tired of my control (Control) (Yuh)
They keep telling me to let go (Let go)
But I don't really let go (Let go) (Yuh) when I say so (Say so) (Yuh, yuh, yuh, yuh)
I keep giving people blank stares (Blank stares) (Yuh)
I'm so different when you're not there (Not there) (Yuh)
It's like something out of Shakespeare (Shakespeare)
Because I'm really not here (Not here) when you're (Not there)

[Pre-Chorus]
I've tried to fight our energy
But every time I think I'm free, yeah (Yuh)

[Chorus]
You get high and call on the regular
I get weak and fall like a teenager
Why, oh, why does God keep bringing me back to you?
I get drunk, pretend that I'm over it
Self-destruct, show up like an idiot
Why, oh, why does God keep bringing me back to you?

[Post-Chorus]
I go back to you, back to you, back to you
Back to you, back to you, back to you
I go back to you, back to you, back to you everytime

[Verse 2]
Just when I get on a new wave (New wave) (Yuh)
Boy, you look at me and I slip outta my place (My place) (My place)
They keep calling me a head-case (Head-case) (Head-case)
Cause I can't make a good case (Good case) (Good case) why we can't change (Can't change, yeah) (Can't change)

[Pre-Chorus]
I've tried to fight our energy (Yee, yeah)
But everytime I think I'm free (Cause everytime I think I'm free), yeah

[Chorus]
You get high and call on the regular
I get weak and fall like a teenager
Why, oh, why does God keep bringing me (Mmmm) back to you?
(Back to you, baby)
I get drunk, pretend that I'm trolling him (-tend that I'm over it)
Self-destruct, show up like a post–idiot (Up like an idiot)
Why, oh, why does God keep bringing me back to you? (Back to you)

[Outro]
I go back to you, back to you, back to you (I go back to you)
Back to you, back to you, back to you (Back to you)
I go back to you, back to you, back to you everytime (I go-oh-oh-oh-oh-ah-hahaha-ah-ah-hahahaha)
I go back to you, back to you, back to you (Yeah)
Back to you, back to you, back to you
