"One-Eighty By Summer" as written by and Matthew A./mascherino Rubano....
Come on just say it
You need me like a bad habit
One that gives you the interest of in depth and love
Come on just say it (Are you afraid to),
You need me like a bad habit (Say what you want to, tell me you want to)
One that gives you the interest of in depth and love (Are you afraid to say what you want to, tell me you want to)

Well I hold my tongue, use it to assess
The damage from way back when it mattered
But nothing seems important anymore
We're just protecting ourselves from our self

And I don't think I'll ever come back down (I don't think I'll ever come back down)
I don't think I'll ever come back down (I don't think I'll ever come back down)
I don't think I'll ever come back down (I don't think I'll ever come back?)
I don't think I"ll ever come back?

Are you ashamed to say what you want to tell me you want to
Are you ashamed to say what you want to tell me you want to
(Come on just say it) Are you ashamed to (Come on just say it) say what you want to tell me you want to
(Come on just say it) Are you ashamed to (Come on just say it) say what you want to tell me you want to

Are you ashamed to say what you want to tell me you want to
Are you ashamed to say what you want to tell me you want to
(Come on just say it) Are you ashamed to (Come on just say it) say what you want to tell me you want to
(Come on just say it) Are you ashamed to (Come on just say it) say what you want to tell me you want to

Are you ashamed to say what you want to tell me you want to
Are you ashamed to say what you want to tell me you want to
(Come on just say it) Are you ashamed to (Come on just say it) say what you want to tell me you want to
(Come on just say it) Are you ashamed to (Come on just say it) say what you want to tell me you want to

I'm making the difference
It just seems pointless
Well I'll be obvious
That's got out of focus
Why can't you just be happy
Why can't you just be happy

And I don't think I'll ever come back down (I don't think I'll ever come back down)
I don't think I'll ever come back down (I don't think I'll ever come back down)
I don't think I'll ever come back down (I don't think I'll ever come back?)
I don't think I'll ever come back...

(Just come back (Repeat 32 times))
Just come on just say it
Come on just say it
Well I'll just say it
I'll just say it,
I need you defenseless, dependent and alone

She says live up to your first impression
Well my best side was your worst invention
In case you live without the intention
In case you live without the intention

She says live up to your first impression
Well my best side was your worst invention
In case you live without the intention
In case you live without the intention

She says live up to your first impression (Come on, just say it)
Well my best side was your worst invention (Come on, just say it)
Why can't you live without the intention (I need you defenseless, dependent)
Why can't you love without the intention (alone)
She says live up to your first impression (I just say it)
Well my best side was your worst invention (I just say it)
Why can't you live without the intention (I need you defenseless, dependent)
Why can't you love without the intention (Alone)
Why can't you love (Defenseless, dependent)
Why can't you love (Defenseless, dependent)
Why can't you love,without love without (Defenseless, dependent, defenseless, dependent)
Why can't you love (Defenseless, dependent)
Why can't you love (Defenseless, dependent)
Why can't you love, without love without love (Defenseless, dependent, defenseless, dependent)

    General CommentI'm surprised no one's said what I'm about to say.
    I think this song is about this scenario:
    Girl and guy break up because they've both changed and aren't sure how they feel. The girl built up the guy in her mind to something he never was, and she's only going by her first impression of him even though he's changed. However, even though they move on they realize they still need each other and are "in love" but neither one of them can admit it because they want to protect themselves. She always wants his attention and realizes even though the relationship wasn't perfect, she still needs him and she's left with no excuse. The "180 by summer" means that he hopes things will turn around from the big mess before to a summer romance. He's saying none of what happened back then matters because both of them still care, but it's all about who makes the first move. I think.
