James Bay - Bad Lyrics




I know it hurts that we don't touch anymore
It's even worse 'cause we built this from the floor
It's just as hard for me to know I might see you 'round
It's just as hard for me to worry 'bout reachin' out

The more I think about you, the more I keep the ghost alive
Yeah, the more I think about you, the more I keep the ghost alive

I want you bad, but it's done
I'm bleeding out, 'cause we can't go on
I want you bad, 'til I shake
I want what we've had, but what's broken don't unbreak

Just when I'm ready to get over you, you call me up
And then I crumble when you say you're getting over us

But the more I think about you, the more I keep the ghost alive
Yeah, the more that I'm without you, the less I know if I was right

I want you bad, but it's done
I'm bleeding out, 'cause we can't go on
I want you bad, 'til I shake
I want what we've had, but what's broken don't unbreak

And I won't tell you
what I want to, what I want to
I'm falling through
I can't hide it, but I learn to

'Cause I want you bad, but it's done
I'm bleeding out, 'cause we can't go on
I want you bad, 'til I shake
I want what we've had, but what's broken don't unbreak

I want you bad, but it's done
I want you bad, but we can't go on

    1/1/2020. "What's broken don't unbreak." People come and go. No use of grieving on people who doesn't give a single fck about u. Time to move on and focus more on myself. Thank you for this song, James.

    okay can James come to South Africa now?

  51. Eunice Paler

    I'm in this very situation. I broke up with my long term boyfriend and somehow found someone else. I realized I made a big mistake months later. I wanted him back. But he is a different person now. He told me he needs time to think things through. It's just sad that we are capable of removing the right people in our lives just like that. It's sad that this song slightly takes away my hope that maybe we can still be together after what happened. It's a good song. Painful. But good. Thank you for this James Bay!

  52. Silvia Puertas

    I want what we had, but what's broken don't unbreak

  81. Fina Apriliani

    I know it hurts that we don't touch anymore
    It's even worse because we built this from the floor
    It's just as hard for me to know I might see you around
    It's just as hard for me to worry 'bout reachin' out

    The more I think about you, the more I keep the ghost alive
    Yeah, the more I think about you, the more I keep the ghost alive

    I want you bad, but it's done
    I'm bleeding out, 'cause we can't go on
    I want you bad, 'til I shake
    I want what we had, but what's broken don't unbreak

    Just when I'm ready to get over you, you call me up
    And then I crumble when you say you're gettin' over us

    But the more I think about you, the more I keep the ghost alive
    Yeah, the more that I'm without you, the less I know if I was right

    I want you bad, but it's done
    I'm bleeding…
