"Loverboy" as written by Chris Miller, Max Helyer, Josh Franceschi, Matt Barnes and Dan Flint....
Hell had you by the throat
You never got to heaven
But you got real close
Your past has you in a choke hold
But you deserve it from what I've been told
Call my bluff say what you want
I'm looking down at you from the top
I beg for attention in small doses
Leave the scene smelling of dead roses

Loverboy, you played those hearts like toys
Don't you feel bad, don't you feel bad?
Filled with repent
This is your night with arms wide open
I'm the option you shouldn't have chosen
Scared of the dark the door's wide open
This is a night you'll regret in the morning

Loverboy, you played us up like toys
Don't you feel bad, don't you feel bad?
Filled with repent
If given the choice would you do it again?
Of course I would, of course I should
Well I'm your friend, friends with benefits

Loverboy, you played us up like toys
Don't you feel bad, don't you feel bad?
Filled with repent
If given the choice would you do it again?
Of course I would, of course I should
Well I'm your friend, friends with benefits

    General CommentI think the chorus should be:
    "Loverboy, you're playing those hearts like toys"

    General CommentI's
    "Leave the scene smelling of dead roses"
    and
    "Filled with repent"
    which is like feeling regret and sorry for the person and also being conscience stricken.

    General Commentit definitely says 'dead roses' not 'scented roses'
    just listen to the acoustic version.
    it's still hard to make out the 'filled with...' part.
    I'm thinking it's saying 'filled with them.'
    'them' as in the hearts the loverboy is playing.
    it's just the way josh sings it like 'filled with-a theeemmm.'
    idk the acoustic version makes out clear words though.
    it's definitely worth listening to. <3 YMAS

    General CommentI have the lyrics booklet.
    It says 'dead roses'
    And I was right about it saying
    "Loverboy, you're playing those hearts like toys
    Don't you feel bad, don't you feel bad
    Feel bad for them?"

    Lyric Correctioni also have the lyrics booklet...
    it says ''you're playing those hearts like toys''
    ''don't you feel bad? don't you feel bad? feel bad for them''
    and...
    it says ''love your friend, friends with benefits'' not ''well im your friend''
    :)

    General Commentok a couple of changes but this is pretty good
    first "Your past has you in a chokehold" it is "Your past has you the chokehold"
    "Leave the scene smelling of dead roses" is "Leave the scene smelling of scented roses"
    "Filled with repent." cant quite hear it think it might say revenge but it is not repent
