"Take Your Breath Away" as written by Josh Franceschi, Max Helyer, Matt Barnes, Chris Miller and Dan Flint....
It's worse, worse than you think,
If truth be told,
I'll tell you that you're lovesick,
I am sweet, so everybody takes a bite,
Dig in, I'm the catalyst of your demise.
Words are cheap so I'll sell you a line,
Like the way you acted that night,
Second best, is what, what you want then,
It won't cost that much, but me.

I've got you hanging on every word I say,
But that don't mean a thing,
And you love the way I take your breath away,
So I'll take your breath away.

Have you had, had your day?
Move close, and I'll push you away.
Play it safe,
For the sake of keeping some face,
Play it safe,
In the name of keeping your place.
Do what, what I tell you to,
With arms we'll carry this through,
Can't wait, can't wait to see you.

I've got you hanging on every word I say,
But that don't mean a thing,
And you love the way I take your breath away,
So I'll take, take, take.

Oh I only have eyes for you,
It's so true.
Oh I only have eyes for you,
It's the truth, it's the truth.
So true.
So true.
So true.
So true.

Oh I only have eyes for you,
Oh I only have eyes for you.

I've got you hanging on every word I say,
But that don't mean a thing,
And you love the way I take your breath away,
So I'll take, take, take.

Oh I only have eyes for you,
It's so true.
Oh I only have eyes for you,
It's the truth, it's the truth.
So true.

    My InterpretationHow can y'all even say that? Don't you recognize the line "I'll tell you that youre love sick" is quoting Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet) his cousin tells him that he's more interested in being in love than loving that person. And he's niceand she's willing to take full advantage.... Unbeknowest to her, he's not actually as innocent as he seems. "words are cheap, so I'll sell you a line" (btw, all of this song is so amazing with all the damn puns and turn of phrase it's ridiculous how good the writing is) he's talking about showing his true nature "like the way you acted that night".. He doesn't point out a specific night for no reason, obviously everything she said or did was just for show. And it set him off to return the favor... "if second best is what you want, then it won't cost you that much but me" (self expainatory) she can have her way, which isn't him and he is the best option... So anything she chooses other than him will only be second best...

    I'll explain the rest later if y'all want

    General Commenthe is using her, and she lets him do it because she actually loves him. and he loves doing it. he'll pick her up and drop her as much as he wants. and mucks her about as much as he wants and she'll let him get away with all of it xxxx
