Steve Lacy - Bad Habit Lyrics




I wish I knew you wanted me
I wish I knew, I wish I knew you wanted me
I wish I knew, I wish I knew you wanted me

What you, ooh, uh, what'd you do?
Made a move, could've made a move
If I knew I'd be with you
Is it too late to pursue?

I bite my tongue, it's a bad habit
Kinda mad that I didn't take a stab at it
Thought you were too good for me, my dear
Never gave me time of day, my dear
It's okay, things happen for
Reasons that I think are sure, yeah

I wish I knew, I wish I knew you wanted me (I wish I knew)
I wish I knew (Oh), I wish I knew you wanted me
I wish I knew (Yeah), I wish I knew you wanted me (Oh)
I wish I knew, I wish I knew you wanted me

Please say to me (Please, just say to me)
If you still want it
I wish you wouldn't play with me
I wanna know (I wanna know)

Uh, can I bite your tongue like my bad habit?
Would you mind if I tried to make a pass at it?
Now you're not too good for me, my dear
Funny you come back to me, my dear
It's okay, things happen for
Reasons that I can't ignore, yeah

I wish I knew, I wish I knew you wanted me
I wish I knew (Wish I knew), I wish I knew you wanted me (Oh)

You can't surprise a Gemini (I wish I knew)
I'm everywhere, I'm cross-eyed (I wish I knew you wanted me)
Now that you're back, I can't decide (I wish I knew)
If I decide if you're invited (I wish I knew you wanted me)
You always knew the way to wow me
Fuck around, get tongue-tied and
I turn it on and make it rowdy
Then carry on, but I'm not hidin'
You grabbin' me hard 'cause you know what you found
It's biscuits, it's gravy, babe

Mm-mm-mm
Mm-mm-mm
Mm-mm-mm, mm-mm-mm-mm
Mm-mm-mm, mm-mm-mm-mm
Mm-mm-mm, mm-mm-mm-mm
Mm-mm-mm, mm-mm-mm-mm
Mm-mm-mm, mm-mm-mm-mm
Mm-mm-mm, mm-mm-mm-mm

You can't surprise a Gemini
But you know it's biscuits, it's gravy, babe
I knew you'd come back around
'Cause you know it's biscuits, it's gravy, babe
Let's fuck in the back of the mall, lose control
Go stupid, go crazy, babe
I know I'll be in your heart 'til the end
You'll miss me, don't beg me, babe

  1. Dan Gale

    @Fithi The drums ain’t special, it’s a very basic drum track lol

  2. Fithi

    @Keke Kimagi I dont joke about drums. get serious

  3. Keke Kimagi

    This a joke right?

  4. Kasandra A

    As someone who's always been straightforward about confessing feelings I've been rejected twice but that's never really stopped me and telling people how I truly feel about them although there was this one guy I never confessed to him we rarely talked which is why I never told them but I never fully got the closure and from time to time I can't help but think about it and what could have been he was the only person I've never said anything to but I would say it's worth confessing rather than pushing the feelings down because it's most likely they feel the same about you and life is too short to go ahead and do it

  5. Daniel Pedroza

    Crazy to see how far he’s come from days where he was barely joining The Internet. Truly a quality artist soon to be on the same level with the frank oceans and tyler’s of the music scene

  6. Chosenonetyler

    No

  7. wide eye boy

    @Nonofo Gaborone And Pharrell yes ofc

  8. Nonofo Gaborone

    Pharrell.

  9. ayee lmao

  10. Pozoleil

    I really can’t explain it but every single time I listen to it, it’s like the first time hearing this song UGHHH ITS TOO GOOD FOR THE SOULLL

  11. 62% homosexual

    Perfect way to describe it

  12. Jaclyn Diane

    SAMEE

  13. James Dhesi

    Amazing representation of the song

  14. M. Dominique Crossley

    good explanation

  15. A. Kaloji

    Steve’s gotten better with every TRACK he’s put out. Gemini Rights is gonna place him on a different level for sure. excited to hear it!

  16. James Vasquez

    @tux 35 minutes to be exact

  17. Jania Sanders

    To whoever is reading this : May God bless you ! You’re gunna do great in life ! Put God first and everything will fall into place ! John 3:16 says , “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life ! Believing in Christ isn’t only enough! Even the demons believe! However, Matthew 6:33 talks about us seeking Him and spending time with Him in the secret place ( where He lives- Matthew 6:6). If we seek Him, we will find Him! If we love Him, we will obey His commandments ! God’s grace is so sufficient! Wishing nothing but love , joy , peace, prosperity, faith, hope, etc. Have a blessed day ! God loves you so much :) don’t forget to read Romans 10:9-10 if you want to accept the Lord as ur Lord and Saviour and Repent ( ask God for forgiveness) 💕💕

  20. Kenna

    Steve is the kind of success story that encourages me as a underground artist with a small following. Seeing how he’s developed his skills and slowly blown up after seizing each and every opportunity he’s been giving has been inspirational! Mans has quickly become a mainstay in the industry and for good reason. Dude is too nice! I know if I put in the work, I can reach a larger audience some day too, but for now, I’m happy being a supporter. My turn will come too. Salute to Steve Lacy🔥

  21. danielle k

    @Victoria Afolabi not a need but a want

  22. Aaron Kelley

    YOUR TURN WILL COME. HATERS DONT EXSIST IF YOU DONT ALLOW THEM TOO. NOTHING GOOD COMES FROM ANYBODY WHO WISH BAD ON ANYONE

  23. Victoria Afolabi

    @danielle k no need to be such a hater

  24. Gracie Fecik

    this is what being a loyal fan is all about, seeing an artist really come into their own and live their creative dream. so proud of you steve:)

  25. Clout Trap

    Remember friends, sometimes rejection is better than regret. Even if they reject you, it's better knowing how they felt about you than having to carry the regret of wishing for what you or what they could've said. 🖤

  26. Ric Peters

    Really proud of Steve. I know his mom and had the pleasure of meeting her and Steve early in his career. Wonderful family, and Steve is every bit deserving of all the attention and accolades. Bright future and an amazing talent! Congratulations Steve, can’t wait to hear the whole album, this one is a banger!

    love the use of colors to complement the vibes of the song.

  34. Average Teemo Main

    It's really unfortunate that this isn't getting as much attention as it should, like Mercury is. Too good.

  35. andrewoid

    @VinAshura if something is overplayed it can be annoying

  46. internet_frnd

    Steve's back at it like a bad habit. This sounds like the kind of song to play in a 90's coming of age movie and I love it.

  47. Caue Oliveira

    Em 1:11 meu coração dispara com essa vozinha que ele faz pqp perfeita essa musica

  48. __cm

  53. Skueky

    Okay, OH WOW. This song is the best I’ve heard in a long while. The song just feels so warm and happy / nostalgic. GOATED song. I can’t wait for the while album to drop on the 15th

  54. Plastichead2728

    The humming at 2:43 sounds so heavenly to me . Great chord progression and melody on the outro. Not crazy about first half of song honestly but I’ve repeatedly listened to the outro since it came out

  55. The Second Son’s

    I’ve had this on repeat for a day.

  56. Hillary Rubin

    I'm wearing it out!

  63. Spunch

    Steve is hitting right in the current feels with this one

  64. papak24

    This song makes me feel so indescribably happy.

  65. Aaliyah Mayorga-Miranda

    As a Gemini, I can’t wait for the full Album Gemini Rights by Steve Lacy. It’s going to be Firee

  66. lolalouiseee

    When Mercury came out, I wasnt sure the next single would top it immediately, but I was wrong. Im so obsessed with this track and the direction hes going with this new project. This is an instant earworm! I just wish the album was out already! 😭

  67. candy5742

    Everything you said exactly and whats weird to me is I just subscribed to his IG 3 days before Mercury came out. What also is strange is that month all I playef was Bosa Nova musica en la trabajo. However he reminds me of Devante Swang and Miguel.

  68. Esmerelda Snickles

    @W.C. J. I'm sayinnggg

  69. W.C. J.

    New single out!!! "Sunshine"... I like Bad Habit more, but still Sunshine is still a great song. This album is gonna be wild

  82. Matt Blak

    I like everything he’s done and everything he’s doing, nuff said.

  83. BlueLight

    this is gonna go down as one of my favorite songs ever. 90s rock and prince vibe with his voice and then hes hitting these 2000s rnb vocals pockets. fuck dude. all of that mixed with his signature guitar tone and vocal backing is fucking wild. lyrics are all on point. not a single section of this song is bad. much love steve

  94. Sumayyah Begum

    FR.
