Lyrics[]

[Intro: Macy Gray & Ariana Grande]
Dangerous love
You're no good for me, darling
Yeah, you turn me away
Like I'm begging for a dollar
Danger, oh, how you hold me
I get a chill inside
And nothing frightens me, baby (Ah, yeah), oh

[Verse: Ariana Grande]
Is it love when so easily you said "goodbye"?
Is it love when we've given up before we tried?
Is it love when you stole my peace of mind?
Is it love when you cry, and cry and cry?

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
So when you walk out that door
Don't you come back no more
My heart has had enough of the give and take
And as much as I want you to stay

[Chorus 1: Ariana Grande]
You're a dangerous love
Maybe you're no good for me, darling
Cause if you're gonna love me and leave me hanging here
Then I'd rather you leave me lonely
Even though it hurts
Oooh, you're a dangerous love, hey, hey

[Refrain: Macy Gray]
Dangerous love
You're no good for me, darling
Yeah, you turn me away
Like I'm begging for a dollar
Danger, oh, how you hold me
I get a chill inside
And nothing frightens me, baby, oh

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
So when you walk out that door
Don't you come back no more
My heart has had enough of the give and take
And as much as I want you to stay

[Chorus 2: Ariana Grande]
You're a dangerous love
So maybe you're no good for me, darling
Cause if you're gonna love me and leave me hanging here
Then I'd rather you leave me lonely
Even though it hurts
Mmmm, you're a dangerous love, baby

[Outro: Macy Gray]
Dangerous love
You're no good for me, darling
Yeah, you turn me away
Like I'm begging for a dollar
Danger, oh, how you hold me
I get a chill inside
And nothing frightens me, baby, oh

You're no good for me, darling

[Bridge]
Danger, danger, dangerous darlin'
