Dodie – Boys Like You Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Hold my head a little higher
Can’t you tell I love a liar?
I know what I look like to you
I would say it’s excessive
Or maybe damn impressive
I’ll admit, I’m confused

[Pre-Chorus]
I’ve gotta remember
That I’m just a toy
‘Til you got my hopes up
And now I’m annoyed
You thought you could charm me
And, damn it, you’re right
So watch me fall for every damn stereotype

[Chorus]
You can’t help it
This is just how we were taught to love
Oh, there’s a name for boys like you
And yet I feel lucky to hear all your lines
I hate that they shake me up every time

[Verse 2]
Mmm-mmm-mmm
Hold my hand for just a second
See you soon, what do we reckon?
Maybe I’m not just a friend
But we’re so close, I thought we’d kiss
Turns out you’re just good at this
But how ’bout you do it again?

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh no, I gotta remember
That I’m just a toy
‘Til you got my hopes up
And now I’m annoyed
You thought you could charm me
And, damn it, you’re right
So watch me fall for every damn stereotype

[Chorus]
You can’t help it
This is just how we were taught to love
Oh, there’s a name for boys like you
And yet I feel lucky to hear all your lines
I hate that they shake me up every time
Guess I’ll take it
This is just how we were taught to love
Oh, there’s a name for boys like you
And yet I feel lucky to hear all your lines
I hate that they shake me up every time

[Bridge]
Mmm-mmm-mmm-ah
They tell me, “Don’t go there
We know you love a nightmare
There’s more than a crush here
Why aim to be crushed here?”
They tell me, “Don’t go there
We know you love a nightmare
There’s more than a crush here
Why aim to be crushed here?”

[Outro]
Oh, there’s a name for boys like you
(They tell me, “Don’t go there
We know you love a nightmare
There’s more than a crush here
Why aim to be crushed here?”
They tell me, “Don’t go there
We know you love a nightmare
There’s more than a crush here
Why aim to—”)
You can’t help it
(They tell me, “Don’t go there
We know you love a nightmare”)
This is just how we were taught to love
(“There’s more than a crush here
Why aim to be crushed here?”)
Oh, there’s a name for boys like you
(They tell me, “Don’t go there
We know you love a nightmare”)
And yet I feel lucky to hear all your lines
(“There’s more than a crush here”)
I hate that they shake me up every time
(“Why aim to be crushed here?”)
Guess I’ll take it
(They tell me, “Don’t go there
We know you love a nightmare”)
This is just how we were taught to love
(“There’s more than a crush here
Why aim to be crushed here?”)
Oh, there’s a name for boys like you
(They tell me, “Don’t go there
We know you love a nightmare”)
And yet I feel lucky to hear all your lines
I hate that they shake me up every time
