LYRICS: Bad Habits (Live 08 Tour)

by

Bad Habits (MAXWELL, BLACKsummersnight 2009, 2nd single) – After watching, SEVERAL different performances of this song on YouTube, I think I have reached a point where I feel comfortable with sharing what I “think” Maxwell is singing with this song, lyrics-wise. Back in October, a friend asked me for the lyrics, I listened to the various Amsterdam performances and sent the information to my friend and did not think anymore about it. So, I just got the chance to get back around to correcting what I heard back in October, September, November and December and I feel comfortable with the lyrics below. NOTE: I watched EVERY video on YouTube labeled Maxwell – Bad Habits or Maxwell – Will You Forgive Me, correct and wrong song title, respectively. Remember where you saw these lyrics…at The Latest Maxwell News. NOTE: These lyrics are from various performances on the Live 08 tour. If you’re looking for the album version’s lyrics click here.

My personal favorite performance of Bad Habits, I like the way it starts…More so, love the 21 seconds of heaven. I could take them to the bank and get cash money for them.

BAD HABITS – MAXWELL
Composer(s) – Hod David & Musze

Chorus:
This is the highest cost,
Take you and make you off
Lifts you and leaves you lost
Will you forgive me?
Asked out all over town
Drags you and keeps you down
Two times then I take a round
Will you forgive me?

Verse – 1

I can’t control the feeling
Girl cause I know you’re here
I fill you from the floor to the ceiling
Girl, I’ll feel you when you comb your hair

Lady, Let me lock and load (ah, ah)
When we’re together, it’s an overdose
I’m slippin’, I’m here, I’m on my knees
I feels my heart’s about to explode

[Chorus]

Verse – 2
Girl, tell the truth
When I’m with you, you still play it cool (…?)
When I’m over, you’re overdue
Girl, there’s no one as bad as you

You got me, you got me
(slippin around with it)
(all around with it, around)
You got me, (slippin around with it)
(and around with it)

and now I’m such a clown…

[Chorus]

**music break**

[Chorus w/ad libs]

will you forgive me
(Repeat until end)

    I hope you don’t mind me correcting the lyrics: This is what I’ve been singing…lol

    I fill you from the floor to the ceiling

    When we’re together, it’s an overdose

    I’m slipping and I’m here, on my knees

  2. Lisa Says:

    Trash you and keeps you down

    Last one

  3. luvtkb Says:

    Yup, “When we’re together it’s an overdose” and
    “I’m slippin, I’m here, I’m on my knees” and

    “Lives you and leaves you lost”

    “Two times and I’ll take a round”

    ” I feel you from the floor to the ceiling”

    and yes it is 21 seconds of the most incredible horn arrangement on earth…reminds of a sultry, Louisiana, Bourbon Street song with some 2nd line brass musicians. I can see him struttin in a video that way with a fringed umbrella likes he’s mourning a loss…He sings like the girl is a narcotic or like he hallucinating or something ha..excellent song!

    Here’ my take on some of the lyrics:

    Lifts you and leaves you lost

    Asked out all over town
    Drags you and keeps you down
    2 times till the day around
    Will you forgive me?

    Verse – 1
    I can’t control the feeling
    Girl cause I know you’re here
    I feel you from the floor to the ceilin’
    Girl, I feel you when you comb your hair
    Lady, let me rock I know ah ah
    When love with you, it’s like an overdose
    I’m slippin’ I’m here I’m on my knees
    I feel my heart’s about to explode
