"Psycho Lovers" is an unreleased song by Melanie Martinez. It was originally intended to be featured on her debut album, Cry Baby. However, the song was later scrapped. This song has not been performed live or officially released. The full song leaked on June 4th, 2021.

Theme

The song is told from the perspective of Cry Baby, and tells of her falling in love with a boy whom she starts to obsess over, it is made clear that she knows of her own infatuation hence the line "I've gone mental can't you tell?". She compares her love similarly to that of a drug and states that when ever he leaves she feels weak-kneed, she grows so fond of him that she starts collecting the hair he leaves behind and watches him sleep saying "Is this what psycho lovers do?", this likely means that the boy might also feel the same way, though it is not made clear.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Will you follow me down here?
Down the rabbit hole, my dear
You're my needle, you're my drug
Get me high up on your love
I've gone mental, can't you tell?
You've put me under your spell
I'm sweating, shaking without you
Without your love, I'll get the flu

[Pre-Chorus]
A damaged brain, the highest fever
I'm sweating bullets without you near, near
A severed heart inside me without your love
I guess I'll bleed, bleed

[Chorus]
Crazy for your love, trembling for your touch
Do you love me too? Is this what psycho lovers do?
Blood is boiling up, feel hot to the touch
Do you love me too? Is this what psycho lovers do?
Ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha ha, ha, ha
Ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha ha, ha, ha

[Verse 2]
Your love crawls up in my skin
Cut me open, put you in
Chills and goosebumps fill me up
Just can't seem to get enough

[Pre-Chorus]
A damaged brain, the highest fever
I'm sweating bullets without you near, near
A severed heart inside me without your love
I guess I'll bleed, bleed

[Chorus]
Crazy for your love, trembling for your touch
Do you love me too? Is this what psycho lovers do?
Blood is boiling up, feel hot to the touch
Do you love me too? Is this what psycho lovers do?
Ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha ha, ha, ha
Ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha ha, ha, ha

[Bridge]
Draw me, honey
I watch you sleep
I'm collecting your hair from the pillow when you leave

[Chorus]
Crazy for your love, trembling for your touch
Do you love me too? Is this what psycho lovers do?
Blood is boiling up, feel hot to the touch
Do you love me too? Is this what psycho lovers do?
Ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha ha, ha, ha
Ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha ha, ha, ha
