Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Am I just a phase that you go through every day?
I don't want us to have an expiration date
Your hand I like to hold more than any guy
You're stuck on the slide while I'm swinging high
I get butterflies when you kiss my cheek
There's something about the way you look at me
I wish that you could reciprocate
But I'm in the waiting game of give and take

[Pre-Chorus]
Tell me I'm the only one, the one that you adore
On this teeter totter it gets harder, swaying back and forth

[Chorus]
I know, I know this feels real good
And I guess that I misunderstood
It doesn't really matter what we saw
Up and down, your love is like a seesaw
I thought, I thought this was deeper
But your love for me is a fever
Doesn't really matter what we saw
Up and down, your love is like a seesaw

[Verse 2]
Sleeping in your T-shirt every night
Waking up to your skin next to mine
But in the streets you won't hold my hand
How do you expect me to understand?

[Pre-Chorus]
Tell me I'm the only one, the one that you adore
On this teeter totter it gets harder, swaying back and forth

[Chorus]
I know, I know this feels real good
And I guess that I misunderstood
Doesn't really matter what we saw
Up and down, your love is like a seesaw
I thought, I thought this was deeper
But your love for me is a fever
Doesn't really matter what we saw
Up and down, your love is like a seesaw

[Bridge]
Ah-ah-ooh-ooh
I know, I know this feels real good
And I guess that I misunderstood
It doesn't really matter what we saw
Up and down, your love is like a seesaw
I thought, I thought this was deeper
Your love for me is a fever
Doesn't really matter what we saw
Up and down, your love is like a seesaw

[Outro]
I know, I know this feels real good
I guess that I misunderstood
Doesn't really matter what we saw
Up and down, your love is like a seesaw
Am I just a phase that you go through every day?
