Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]

I copy the things he tells me to do

If I fail, he'll turn me blue

I wish I could tell this boy

I don’t want this love, it’s toxic

But he tells me he will suicide if I leave

He calls it being love sick

I can't get out

No, I can't get out

[Chorus]

I can't speak up

Or else I'm gone

I'm giving up, yeah I'm giving up

Or else I'm gone

Or else I'm gone

[Verse 2]

I've got many different names for him

Jimmy, Lover Boy and Simon

[Chorus]

[Post-Chorus]

[Bridge]

[Chorus]
