"Reckless" as written by Chris Miller, Max Helyer, Josh Franceschi, Matt Barnes and Dan Flint....
I've been trying to make sense
I've been shouting under my breath
How's in the opposite of my interest
You sold me out, a massive knock off the chair
Your lust is a lie, but it comes as no surprise
Time after time, it goes right past the line
I do my best to, to make amends with you
But I just can't see the end oh

Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R

Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R
Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless, and you're defenseless

And isn't it funny how
Those black clouds follow you around?
It's Karma smiling down
Just let me know when it's in town
You act like the world owes you a favor
You want it all but you don't like the taste, oh
You've been throwing bricks at my window
Like there's no better way to say hello
Hello

Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R
Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless, and you're defenseless

The best, you never had
The best, you never had
The best, you never had
The best, you never had

I'm the devil on your shoulder
I'm the conscious in your mind
I'm the feeling that you, you cannot hide
I'm the devil on your shoulder
Doesn't mean that love is blind
It's OK when it's Satan in disguise
Your loose lips let, let a word slide
You spend too much time talking about my life
Stories spin just for a power trip
It's safe to say that I am not into it
In the picture you were not
Someone is in your spot
This is the result of people moving on
Good luck with killing time
You won't be killing mine
I'll do my best
To always be on your mind
Your mind

I never once said I didn't mean this
I can't wait to see how this one gets out
You are the first to question my achievements
But that's all right, my dreams are living

Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R

Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R
Don't hold your breath, I'ma not losing sleep over you
I'm Mr Reckless, and you're defenseless

The best, you never had
The best, you never had
The best, you never had
The best, you never had

    Lyric Correction"How's in the opposite of my interest" should be **"How's any of this of my interest"

    **"You sold me out, I must have not got the check"

    **"I'm the devil on your shoulder
    Telling you that love is blind
    It's okay when, it's hiding in disguise"

    General CommentThese are the Correct Lyrics...

    I've been trying to make sense
    I've been shouting under my breath
    How's any of this in my interest?
    When you sold me out
    I must've not got the cheque

    Your lust is a lie but it comes as no suprise
    Time after time you coast right past the line
    I do my best to,
    To make amends with you
    But I just can't see the end

    Don't hold your breath
    I'm not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R

    Don't hold your breath
    I'm not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless and you're defenseless

    Isn't it funny how
    Those black clouds follow you around?
    It's karma smiling down
    Just let me know when it's in town

    You act like the world owes you a favour
    You want it all but you don't like the taste oh
    You've been throwing bricks at my window
    Like there's no better way to say 'hello'
    Hello

    Don't hold your breath
    I'm not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R

    Don't hold your breath
    I'm not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless and you're defenseless

    The best you never had
    The best you never had
    The best you never had
    The best you never had

    I'm the devil on your shoulder
    I'm the conscious in your mind

    I'm the feeling that you
    You cannot hide

    I'm the devil on your shoulder
    Telling you that love is blind
    It's ok when it's hiding in disguise

    Your loose lips let
    Let words slide
    You spend too much
    Time talking about my life

    Stories you will spin
    Just for a power trip
    It's safe to say that I am not into it

    In the picture you are not
    Someone else is in your spit
    This is the result of people moving on

    Good luck with killing time
    You won't be killing mine
    I'll do my best to always be on your mind

    I never once said I didn't mean this
    I can't wait to see how this one pans out

    You are the first to question my achievemnets
    But that's alright
    My dreams I've been living

    Don't hold your breath
    I'm not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R

    Don't hold your breath
    I'm not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless with a capital R

    Don't hold your breath
    I'm not losing sleep over you
    I'm Mr Reckless and you're defenseless

    The best you never had
    The best you never had
    The best you never had
    The best you never had
