"Riot" as written by Sara Haze and Jaron Boyer....
I'd be ridin' in a cab goin' downtown
Findin' faces I know in a big crowd
Tryin' to drink the pain away, mhmm
And I'd be stayin' out all night, never goin' home
Girl you know I'd lose all control
If I lost you

There would be a riot
Breakin' up my heart, I'd try to fight it
I could go out every night but I'd be lyin'
If I said I could live and breathe
Without you
There'd be a lot of lonely
Wishin' and prayin' that you would hold me
I would do most anything baby
If only you would come back to me
Come back to me
There would be a riot
Oh yeah, oooh

I'd be checkin' on my phone every minute
Waitin' 'round for it to start ringin'
And prayin' it would be you
I don't know what I'd do

There would be a riot
Breakin' up my heart, I'd try to fight it
I could go out every night but I'd be lyin'
If I said I could live and breathe
Without you
There'd be a lot of lonely
Wishin' and prayin' that you would hold me
I would do most anything baby if only
You would come back to me
Come back to me
There would be a riot
If I ever lost you
If I ever lost you

There would be a riot
Breakin' up my heart, I'd try to fight it
I could go out every night but I'd be lyin'
If I said I could live and breathe
There'd be a lot of lonely
Wishin' and prayin' that you would hold me
I would do most anything baby if only
You would come back to me
Come back to me
There would be a riot
If I ever lost you

There would be, there would be a riot
Breakin' up my heart, I'd try to fight it
There would be a riot
If I ever lost you

    General CommentI love this song so much!
    I can listen to it for long periods of time and always feel pain each time.
    This song is about a guy telling his woman what he'd do if they ever broke up OR if he ever lost her. He's saying that he would continue to live life, going through daily routines, but his heart would always struggle with the pain of having lost her.
    The "riot" is in him pretending to be okaye (going out, being with friends, ignoring the heartache, etc.) but knowing in his heart and head that all he wants is to be back in her arms.
    It's really a deep song. It definitely reminds me of "Breathe Again" by Toni Braxton.
