Bad Habit
Steve Lacy Lyrics


I wish I knew you wanted me
I wish I knew
I wish I knew you wanted me
I wish I knew
I wish I knew you wanted me

What you, ooh, uh, what you do?
Made a move, could've made a move
If I knew I'd be with you
Is it too late to pursue?

I bite my tongue, it's a bad habit
Kinda mad that I didn't take a stab at it
Thought you were too good for me, my dear
Never gave me time of day, my dear
It's okay, things happen for
Reasons that I think are sure, yeah

I wish I knew
I wish I knew you wanted me (I wish I knew)
I wish I knew (oh)
I wish I knew you wanted me
I wish I knew (yeah)
I wish I knew you wanted me (oh)
I wish I knew
I wish I knew you wanted me

Please say to me (please, just say to me)
If you still want it
I wish you wouldn't play with me
I wanna know (I wanna know)

Uh, can I bite your tongue like my bad habit?
Would you mind if I tried to make a pass at it?
No, you're not too good for me, my dear
Funny you come back to me, my dear
It's okay, things happen for
Reasons that I can't ignore, yeah

I wish I knew
I wish I knew you wanted me
I wish I knew (wish I knew)
I wish I knew you wanted me (oh)

You can't surprise a Gemini (I wish I knew)
I'm everywhere, I'm cross-eyed-ed (I wish I knew you wanted me)
Now that you're back, I can't decide (I wish I knew)
If I decide if you're invited (I wish I knew you wanted me)
You always knew the way to wow me
Fuck around, get tongue-tied-ed
I turn it on, I make it rowdy
Then carry on, but I'm not hidin'
You grabbin' me hard 'cause you know what you found
It's biscuits, is gravy, babe

You can't surprise a Gemini
But you know it's biscuits, it's gravy, babe
I knew you'd come back around
'Cause you know it's biscuits, it's gravy, babe
Let's fuck in the back of the mall, lose control
Go stupid, go crazy, babe
I know I'll be in your heart 'til the end
You'll miss me, don't beg me, babe

I wish I knew, I wish I knew you wanted me
I wish I knew, I wish I knew you wanted me

[Verse 1]
What you, ooh, uh, what you do?
Made a move, coulda made a move
If I knew I'd be with you
Is it too late to pursue?

I bite my tongue, it's a bad habit
Kinda mad that I didn't take a stab at it
Thought you were too good for me, my dear
Never gave me time of day, my dear
It's okay, things happen for
Reasons that I think are sure, yeah

I wish I knew, I wish I knew you wanted me (I wish I knew)
I wish I knew (Oh), I wish I knew you wanted me
I wish I knew (Yeah), I wish I knew you wanted me (Oh)
I wish I knew, I wish I knew you wanted me

Please say to me (Please, just say to me)
If this could wind up
I wish you wouldn't play with me
I wanna know (Oh, no)

Uh, can I bite your tongue like my bad habit?
Would you mind if I tried to make a pass at it?
Were you not too good for me, my dear?
Funny you came back to me, my dear
It's okay, things happen for
Reasons that I can't ignore, yeah

I wish I knew, I wish I knew you wanted me
I wish I knew (Wish I knew), I wish I knew you wanted me (Oh)

You can't surprise a Gemini (I wish I knew)
I'm everywhere, I'm cross-eyed (I wish I knew you wanted me)
Now that you're back, I can't decide (I wish I knew)

You always knew the way to wow me
Fuck around, get tongue-tied and
I turn it on, I make it rowdy
Then carry on, but I'm not hidin'
You grabbin' me hard 'cause you know what you found
Is biscuits, is gravy, babe

[Break]

You can't surprise a Gemini
But you know it's biscuits, is gravy, babe
I knew you'd come back around
'Cause you know it's biscuits, is gravy, babe
Let's fuck in the back of the mall, lose control
Go stupid, go crazy, babe
I know I'll be in your heart 'til the end
You'll miss me, don't beg me, babe

When Mercury came out, I wasnt sure the next single would top it immediately, but I was wrong. Im so obsessed with this track and the direction hes going with this new project. This is an instant earworm! I just wish the album was out already! 😭

bube udeh

AHHHHHHHHHH

BlueLight

this is gonna go down as one of my favorite songs ever. 90s rock and prince vibe with his voice and then hes hitting these 2000s rnb vocals pockets. fuck dude. all of that mixed with his signature guitar tone and vocal backing is fucking wild. lyrics are all on point. not a single section of this song is bad. much love steve

Produced By Status

Couldn’t agree more with everything you said 🚀🥶

Hillary Rubin
