LyricsEdit

Salvatore, you can def' be my baby blue
Be my mafiosi rock 'n' roll high
Back to Malibu in our trailer park for two
We're like Sid and Nancy, lovin' the fight

We got a jumper, got a jumper
Got a jumper, got a jumper
My man's crazy and his mind isn't right
But I like him, fact, I love him
I can't get e-enough of him
He knows only I can save him tonight

I've been waiting on your love, baby
For too long now, too long now
I thought that I could change you like the others
But I don't know how, don't know how

It's gonna backfire
It's gonna backfire, baby
Gonna backfire
Gonna backfire, baby

Told you one million times before
Yes, I'm up for it a million more

I'm tired of fighting you, seems like everything I do
Even when I win I lose with you, man
And it's not something you choose, you say trouble follows you
It's been like that since the day you began

We got a jumper, got a jumper
Got a jumper, got a jumper
I know very well you're bringing me down
I will follow, I will follow
For a little piece of heaven
I'm ready, I am willing to drown

I've been waiting on your love, baby
For too long now, too long now
I thought that I could change you like the others
But I don't know how, don't know how

It's gonna backfire
It's gonna backfire, baby
Gonna backfire
Gonna backfire, baby

We've done it a million times before
Yes, I'm up for it a million more

You're always taking trips downtown
Officer Brown's always coming around
Tappin' on the windows, "Kids, come out.
Ain't no way to live when we show you how."

But we know we're not gonna change
Keep hustlin', every night and day

I've been waiting on your love, baby
For too long now, too long now
I thought that I could change you like the others
But I don't know how, don't know how

It's gonna backfire
It's gonna backfire, baby
Gonna backfire
Gonna backfire, baby

Done it a million times before
And I'm up for it a million more
