Bailey

by Julia Michaels

[Verse 1]
Well Bailey, Bailey, spilled the cup
Cause her brother Jack was not lookin' up
What do I do?
What do I do?
So, I asked him what's wrong as he turned away
He said "Daniel tried to poison him and leave him a stray"
But I'm not surprised, I just sat there and rolled my eyes

[Pre-Chorus]
But this kid is going through a breakdown
A violent fit of rage, but without the sound
And yeah, this kid is going through a breakdown
Are they hopin' that

[Chorus]
I'll never know what it's like to feel that alone?
Holdin' my breath until someone's home
Will we ever be the same?
Oh, I'll never know what it's like to feel that alone
Sayin' "24 ounces left to go"
Guess we'll never be the same

[Verse 2]
Well Bailey, Bailey calls José
Says "the boy is in some trouble and she don't know who to blame"
But she does
Oh, you know that she does
Then she calls her mother Morgan, holdin' back the cry
But her mother's still at work and pre-occupied
But you can tell in her voice she doesn't care that her kid

[Pre-Chorus]
That her kid is going through a breakdown
A violent fit of rage but without the sound
And yeah, this kid is going through a breakdown
Are they hopin' that

[Chorus]
I'll never know what it's like to feel that alone?
Holdin' my breath until someone's home
Will we ever be the same?
Oh, I'll never know what it's like to feel that alone
Sayin' "24 ounces left to go"
Guess we'll never be the same

[Bridge]
Well Jack I know I've done
Some things I shouldn't have done
But don't misunderstand
Just blame it on the rum
And not me
Signed forever, Bailey...

[Chorus]
Cause I'll never know what it's like to feel that alone
Holdin' my breath until someone's home
Will we ever? Will we ever? Will we ever
Nobody knows what it's like to feel that alone
Sayin' "24 ounces left to go"
Guess we'll never be the same

[Post-Chorus]
Well Bailey, Bailey spilled the cup
Cause her brother Jack was not lookin' up
What do I do?
What do I do?
