Hearts break too fast when they're sentimental
Won't stay won't last when it's love at first sight
So why are my convictions blinded by your spotlight

Can't breathe can't sleep with some medication
I'll kiss goodbye to my reservations
I know there's other fish out in the sea
Not for me
I want you

If I can't have you then I don't want anyone (I don't want anyone)
If I can't have you then all the damage has been done baby
You can break these rules if you wanna have some fun (if you wanna have some fun)
Think of all the love that you will lose if I can't have you

Heartbeat cold sweat thoughts slipping under
Can't fight no threat 'cause there's just no use
One look, no hesitation
I'm slipping into you

Forgive these eyes these lips you're tasting
No time to waste on an invitation
My shame my self control has suffered enough
Everybody wants to be loved

If I can't have you then I don't want anyone (I don't want anyone)
If I can't have you then all the damage has been done baby
You can break these rules if you wanna have some fun (if you wanna have some fun)
Think of all the love that you will lose if I can't have you

I haven't seen the best that love has had to offer
They say perfection's always right around the corner
Could be true
But if I can't have you

If I can't have you then I don't want anyone (I don't want anyone)
If I can't have you then all the damage has been done baby
You can break these rules if you wanna have some fun (if you wanna have some fun)
Think of all the love that you will lose if I can't have you
