Alicia Keys – 101 Lyrics

Produced By: Alicia Keys

You pyonged “Alicia Keys – 101”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]
You used to the sound of a heart that's breaking
I know it don't faze you anymore

You're the king of the game that you're playing
I know you've played it a hundred times before

You fill your bedroom up with trophies
Then you get a kick out of closing the door
Got all the words to keep on hoping
I know you've said them a hundred times before

Then there's me, all fox for your gun
Then there's me, just love me for fun
Then there's me, no use in pretending
Oh there's me, a 101

[Verse 2]
I might as well stand in front of a bullet
Close my eyes and kick the chair to the floor
It's like a speeding train is coming
I know you've crashed it 100 times before


[Verse 3]
Everybody says I gotta be crazy
That I deserve everything that I get
But I got a feeling
That makes me wanna ignore all that you've done a 100 times before

[Verse 4]
Cause then there's me, could I be the one
And baby there's me, to make you undone
Uh darling there's me, no use, no use in pretending
Oh there's me, a 101
Me, 101
So I gotta be, I gotta be, I gotta be a 101
Maybe it's time, maybe it's me
Maybe I could be, Maybe pretend
I gotta be, I wanna be 101
Yeah baby
