mảnh ghép của sản phẩm lần này đều được cô đầu tư, chăm chút kỹ lưỡng, đặc biệt là về hình ảnh và thể loại.

 

You should take it as a compliment

That I got drunk and made fun of the way you talk

You should think about the consequence 

Of your magnetic field being a little too strong

And I got a boyfriend, he’s older than us

He’s in the club doing I don’t know what

You’re so cool it makes me hate you so much

Whiskey on ice, sunset and vine

You ruin my life, why not be in mine?

You’re so gorgeous

I can’t say anything to your face

‘Cause look at your face

And I’m so furious

At you for making me feel this way

But what can I say?

You’re gorgeous 

You should take it as a compliment


That I’m talking to everyone here but you

And you should think about the consequence


Of you touching my hand in the darkened room

If you’ve got a girlfriend, I’m jealous of her

But if you’re single that’s honestly worse

‘Cause you’re so gorgeous it actually hurts
(Honey, it hurts)

Ocean blue eyes looking in mine

I feel like I might sink and drown and die

You’re so gorgeous

I can’t say anything to your face

‘Cause look at your face

And I’m so furious

At you for making me feel this way

But what can I say?

You’re gorgeous

You make me so happy it turns back to sad, yeah

There’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have

You are so gorgeous it makes me so mad

You make me so happy it turns back to sad, yeah

There’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have

Guess I’ll just stumble on home to my cats

Alone, unless you wanna come along, oh!

You’re so gorgeous

 
I can’t say anything to your face

‘Cause look at your face

And I’m so furious

At you for making me feel this way

But what can I say?

You’re gorgeous

You make me so happy it turns back to sad, yeah

There’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have

You are so gorgeous it makes me so mad

You’re gorgeous

You make me so happy it turns back to sad, yeah

There’s nothing I hate more than what I can’t have

You are so gorgeous it makes me so mad

You’re gorgeous
