"Hot Mess" as written by and Patrick Gemayel David Macklovitch....
You're a hot mess
You act like you've got nothing to lose
But I've already lost my temper

I put my loving on the line for you, lady
But my spirits were low
I would have committed a crime for you, baby
Yeah, it got out of control

I know my temper's been kinda crazy
I need somebody, (What) I need someone
Your love is real but I just feel suffocated
I feel so lonely, (What) I feel so numb

I thought we had this conversation already
Do you really want to go through this all over again

The way I was acting was just fine but then lately
You sorta noticed a shift
Every day was Christmas time for you, lady
You got showered with gifts

But you could hear it in my voice
I was getting kind of aloof
And I don't really have a choice
I guess I gotta tell you the truth

I know my temper's been kinda crazy
I need somebody, (What) I need someone
Your love is real but I just feel suffocated
I feel so lonely, (What) I feel so numb

I don't what you want from me
I mean, I'm not a bloody social worker

I know my temper's been kinda crazy
I need somebody, (What) I need someone
Your love is real but I just feel suffocated
I feel so lonely, (What) I feel so numb

What?

I need somebody, I need someone
I feel so lonely, I feel so numb

    General CommentSo nobody has commented on what they're talking about... seems that the guy likes the girl, treats her well, and is confused by his own feelings of loneliness (the repeated "What?").

    Is this just about a fickle dude who is looking for something different? He doesn't talk about why he is less interested in the girl... in fact, quite the opposite, he has real love from the girl, he would have done anything for her.

    General CommentHe's losing interest and feeling guilty about it so he's taken to buying her gifts to soothe his conscience.

    I feel so numb* for the end of the chorus.
