Last night, I lost all my patience
You were fucked up, I was wasted
Midsummer madness
I can't take it no more, no more
F*ck the ru-u-u-ules
F*ck the ru-u-u-ules

Make it make sense
Make it make sense, I
Can't hide a heart in a black tint, I
You were off the bullshit and the tablets
Under 21, both savage
All these blurry nights feel the same to me
Heart full of hate, no vacancy
Only one you gonna blame when it's over
Can't look me in my eyes when you sober
Hey, I'm the one you call when you feelin' low
Running up a check just to help you cope
I just want to live in the moment
You just want to fight 'cause you lonely
Tryna see a milly then be really up
Rockstar crash in my Bentley truck
You need all my love
You've got all the love

Last night, I lost all my patience
You were fucked up, I was wasted
Midsummer madness
I can't take it no more, no more
F*ck the ru-u-u-ules
F*ck the ru-u-u-ules

Uh, ayy, ayy, uh
Been a minute since I heard you wanna stay as friends
I learned from my mistakes, you make me want to learn again
I don't really see the problem, it's a risk I wanna take
You say "Let's see where it goes" but I don't really wanna wait
Ayy, look and listen up
You've been smiling when we f*ck
Let's not even think about it, we ain't gotta talk a lot
We get it hotter than the summer, I'll stay with you when it's not
Put the slow jams on, I wanna see you make it pop, ayy
Moving all around the bed like we just toss and turn, ayy
Playin' with the fire, I don't care if I get burned, ayy
I'ma treat you good like you've been waitin' for your turn, ayy
Nothing in the universe feel better than your tongue, ayy
'Bout to go home, I know you finna come with
I'm playing these games like a pimp on the strip
Conversations late night about how we gonna live
I don't got the answer to it, all I'm finna say is

F*ck the ru-u-u-ules
F*ck the ru-u-u-ules (ayy, gang, gang)
Ru-u-u-ules (ayy, gang, gang)
Ru-u-u-u-oh (yeah)

當光灑進了 white Porsche
I never felt so good
Call me DJ Knowknow, oh-oh no
F*ck the rules
距離不是問題, I know
She lookin' so pretty, I wanted a kiss
把beautiful memories 存入我的iPhone X
I,I,I hope 24 can become 48
看日落 粉的天 有藍月亮陪
想要擁抱 我需要前給
Sunny gone, I don't care, you're my sunshine babe

I don't feel control
I'm better on my own
I'm used to being so gone for way too long
Long, long, long
Rules, rules, rules
Rules, rules, rules
