Lyrics

Obsessive Behavior 

 

My obsessive behavior is taking over you/

I’m just a mess through and through/

 

My obsessive behavior is taking over you/

I’m just a mess through and through/

 

I want you/

I want you/ scat/

to see me/

the way I know you love to do/

 

I need you/

I need you/ Scat/

I’m dependent on your safety/

what would you have me do? /

 

My obsessive behavior is taking over you/

I’m just a mess through and through/

 

My anxiety is a wound I just can’t fix for you/

It’s the way I was made, that is true/

 

You hate how/

You hate how/ scat/

I have my own ruse/

for keeping secrets from you/

 

I fight you/

I fight you/ scat/


from seeing my true self/

It’s ugly and blue/

 

I hate how you relate me to the Taming of the Shrew/

Shouldn’t that just give you a clue? /

 

You like to say we’re held together with glue/

That’s just a cliché/

Why do I have to love you? /

 

I hang out/

I hang out/ scat/

with your crew/

just because I wanna impress you/

 

I see you/

I see you/ scat/

In my mind, all the time/

I just wish I knew/

 

If you loved me the same way/

Otherwise, you’d leave me today/

 

My obsessive behavior is taking over you/

I’m just a mess through and through/

 

My anxiety is a wound I just can’t fix for you/

It’s the way I was made, that is true/

 

I’m told that I need to be done with you/

Maybe if I just give it time, you would say it too/

 

But that’s not happening/ scat/

I just need to let go of you/

I just need to let go of you/

I just need to let go of you/

Scat/
