Back to You (ft. Bebe Rexha)

Musically, "Back To You" is surprisingly restrained, especially compared to many other electronic pop offerings. The chorus kicks up the otherwise relaxed track up a notch, but nothing about this song screams "banger," and that's fine. Tomlinson and his partners have delivered something far more interesting than many of his contemporaries, even if it doesn't wind up being blasted at parties for the rest of the summer. - Forbes

Back to You Lyrics

[Verse 1: Bebe Rexha]
I know you say you know me, know me well
But these days I don't even know myself, no
I always thought I'd be with someone else
I thought I would own the way I felt, yeah

[Pre-Chorus 1: Bebe Rexha]
I call you but you never even answer
I tell myself I'm done with wicked games
But then I get so numb with all the laughter
That I forget about the pain

[Chorus: Bebe Rexha]
Whoa, you stress me out, you kill me
You drag me down, you fuck me up
We're on the ground, we're screaming
I don't know how to make it stop
I love it, I hate it, and I can't take it
But I keep on coming back to you

[Verse 2: Louis Tomlinson]
I know my friends, they give me bad advice
Like move on, get you out my mind
But don't you think I haven't even tried?
You got me cornered and my hands are tied

[Pre-Chorus 2: Louis Tomlinson & Bebe Rexha]
You got me so addicted to the drama
I tell myself I'm done with wicked games
But then I get so numb with all the laughter
That I forget about the pain

[Chorus: Louis Tomlinson]
Whoa, you stress me out, you kill me
You drag me down, you fuck me up
We're on the ground, we're screaming
I don't know how to make it stop
I love it, I hate it, and I can't take it
But I keep on coming back to you (back to you)
Oh, no, no, I just keep on coming back to you (back to you)
Oh, no, no, I just keep on coming back to you

[Bridge: Louis Tomlinson & Bebe Rexha]
And I guess you'll never know
All the bullshit that you put me through
And I guess you'll never know, no
Yeah, so you can cut me up and kiss me harder
You can be the pill to ease the pain
'Cause I know I'm addicted to your drama
Baby, here we go again

[Chorus: Bebe Rexha & Louis Tomlinson]
Whoa, you stress me out, you kill me
You drag me down, you fuck me up
We're on the ground, we're screaming
I don't know how to make it stop
I love it, I hate it, and I can't take it
But I keep on coming back to you (back to you)
Oh, no, no, I just keep on coming back to you (back to you)
Oh, no, no, I just keep on coming back to you (back to you)
I just keep on coming back to you
