I like u Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'ma tell you the truth now
'Cause I'm too high to lie
I wish I was your girlfriend
Is she with you tonight?
You say, "Sorry, I'm taken"
Walk away with a smile
I know I'm not mistaken
You're the love of my life

[Pre-Chorus]
You make it hard
I guess I respect that
Don't take too long
I've been waitin' all night

[Chorus]
La-la-like you, I la-la-la-like you
La-la-like you, I la-la-la-like you, ooh
What do I do? There's nobody like you
La-la-like you, I la-la-la-like you, ooh

[Verse 2]
I run into you everywhere
But you push me away
Does it mean you're still with her?
She convinced you to stay?
I know it's wrong, but
I cannot help it, I (I cannot help it)
I know it's wrong, but
I cannot take it, I (I cannot take it)
[Build]
I know it's wrong, but
I, I, I like you

[Chorus]
La-la-like you, I la-la-la-like you
La-la-like you, I la-la-la-like you, ooh
What do I do? There's nobody like you
La-la-like you, I la-la-la-like you, ooh
(I know it's wrong, but)
La-la-like you, I la-la-la-like you
La-la-like you, I la-la-la-like you, ooh
What do I do? There's nobody like you
La-la-like you, I la-la-la-like you, ooh
I want you tonight

[Outro]
I don't know, but
Sometimes, when you find love
The wrong thing is right
It might be hard
But worth the fight
Real love

How to Format Lyrics:

  • Type out all lyrics, even repeating song parts like the chorus
  • Lyrics should be broken down into individual lines
  • Use section headers above different song parts like [Verse], [Chorus], etc.
  • Use italics (<i>lyric</i>) and bold (<b>lyric</b>) to distinguish between different vocalists in the same song part
  • If you don’t understand a lyric, use [?]

What did Tove Lo say about "I like u"?
Genius Answer

I wanted to make another dance song that sonically felt like a nod to 90’s and Y2K dance music. It’s not the usual pop structure but it’s perfect for this song, I think.

Lyrically I’m telling the story of my thoughts the first time I saw the love of my life. They’re not clean but at least I never said any of them out loud.
