"Enemies" as written by Billy Mann, Peter Wallace and Ryan Cabrera....
In the backseat of a yellow taxi
Feel your heart beat, deception is intense
And you think I didn't know

It's like Bombay traffic in my mind
How can you keep up with all your lies
And you think I didn't notice

I said keep your enemies close and your lovers closer
I'm letting you know the show is over now
So lean in closer now

Well, keep your hands up so I can see
I think it's too late, you got the best of me
So lean in closer
Keep your enemies close and your lovers closer

And it's toxic but you can't refuse
The first to volunteer to be abused like this
Well, don't act like you don't know
We're in the bedroom of your very best friend
I'm fucking guilty

I said keep your enemies close and your lovers closer
I'm letting you know the show is over now
So lean in closer now

Well, keep your hands up so I can see
I think it's too late, you got the best of me
So lean in closer, lean in closer

don't say that we're something were not
If we think to much then we're gonna get caught
Don't say that we're something were not
The truth is maybe I wanna get caught

Keep your enemies close and your lovers closer
Keep your enemies close and your lovers closer
I said keep your enemies close and your lovers closer
I'm letting you know the show is over now
So lean in closer now

Well, keep your hands up so I can see
I think it's too late you got the best of me
So lean in closer, lean in closer
Keep your enemies close and your lovers closer

    General CommentRyan said in an interview, it's about cheating. His girlfriend cheated on him, and he knew, so he stayed with her and cheated on her. He was so mad, he stayed with her just to write this song.
