The following week, it jumped to number 63, mainly due to the release of the music video. It reached and has since peaked at number 53 in its third week.

Music video Edit

Rexha filmed a music video for the song, but it was scrapped due to its explicit content. She told a radio DJ: "It was actually too sexual so I had to get rid of it. It was too much," explaining further, "I have young fans. I like to be sexy 'cause I'm a woman now, but I still want to be a good role model."[1]

Lyrics Edit

I can see you hurtin'
I've been through the same thing
Baby don't you worry
I got you
I just wanna know you
Tell me all your secrets
Lookin' like you need it

Cause I got you, you, oh, you
I got you, I got you
Cause I got you, you, oh, you
I got you, I got you

We can get high, oh nah, nah, nah
We can get low, oh nah, nah, nah
Let me be your friend, baby let me in
Tell you no lies, oh, nah, nah, nah
We can get lost oh, nah, nah, nah
Take it all off, oh, nah, nah, nah
Let me be your friend, baby let me in
Give it to me all, oh, nah, nah, nah

Tell me what you're thinkin'
Always over thinkin'
I just wanna love you
I got you
Don't have to be so guarded
Let's finish what we started
It's all I ever wanted

Cause I got you, you, oh, you
I got you, I got you

We can get high, oh nah, nah, nah
We can get low, oh nah, nah, nah
Let me be your friend, baby let me in
Tell you no lies, oh, nah, nah, nah
We can get lost oh, nah, nah, nah
Take it all off, oh, nah, nah, nah
Let me be your friend, baby let me in
Give it to me all, oh, nah, nah, nah

Cause I got you, you, oh, you
I got you, I got you

I'd do the time for you
Tell a lie for you
Yeah, baby, that's what I'd do
I'd walk the line for you
Take a shot for you
Yeah, baby, that's what I'd do
Cause I got you
It's true
I'd die for you
I'd die for you
I got you

We can get high, oh nah, nah, nah
We can get low, oh nah, nah, nah
Let me be your friend, baby let me in
Tell you no lies, oh, nah, nah, nah
We can get lost oh, nah, nah, nah
Take it all off, oh, nah, nah, nah
Let me be your friend, baby let me in
Give it to me all, oh, nah, nah, nah

Cause I got you, you, oh, you
I got you, I got you
Cause I got you, you, oh, you
I got you, I got you
I got...
