Bebe Rexha – Sabotage Lyrics

Sabotage Lyrics – Bebe Rexha

Why do I sabotage everything I love?
It’s always beautiful until I fuck it up

Tell myself I’m safe and lonely
With nobody else to break my heart
Even though I know you’d never
I’m my own worst enemy and think you are

Matches in my back pocket
I’m the queen of burnin’ bridges
I will only let you down

Why do I sabotage everything I love?
It’s always beautiful until I fuck it up
Why do I sabotage everything I love?
The walls are closin’ in because I built them up

Why can’t I let myself be happy? (Ooh)
Why do I gotta get in my own way? (Ooh)
My shoes are worn out, always runnin’
From the reasons that I really wanna stay

Matches in my back pocket
I’m the queen of burnin’ bridges
I will only let you down

Why do I sabotage everything I love?
It’s always beautiful until I fuck it up
Why do I sabotage everything I love?
The walls are closin’ in because I built them up

So don’t let me hope too high
Don’t let me hope too high
‘Cause I will find a way to tear it down every time
Don’t let me hope too high
When everything is right
‘Cause I will find a way to tear it down every time
I sabotage everything I love
It’s always beautiful until I fuck it up

Why do I sabotage everything I love?
It’s always beautiful until I fuck it up
Why do I sabotage everything I love?
The walls are closin’ in because I built them up

Why do I sabotage?
