The Found Poetry of Britney Spears

My loneliness is killin’ me
Here we are with nothing but honesty
E-mail my heart
And say our love will never die
‘Cause the girl in my mirror
Is crying out tonight

Oh baby baby if you seek Amy tonight
Oh baby baby we’ll do whatever you like
If you wanna mess with my eyesight,
Just let me get my head right
Where the hell am I?
I killed the lights, the lights, the lights

I’m into myself in the most precious way
No more tears to dry
You and I, we’re like so “bye-bye”
I’ve heard it all before and I-E-I-E-I
I’m a slaaaaaaaaaaave for you
Tell me, i’m not in the blue
That i’m not wastin, my feelings on you
Open that soda pop, bop-a shu-bop shu-bop

Pull up to my bumper
Watch me apply the pressure,
all decked in lace and leather
just like a circus

Am I too hot for you though
Did you check out my video
Hooked up with a guy named Joe
When the music was fast and slow
I’m cold as fire, baby
Hot as ice
When I crack that whip, everybody gon’ trip

Get naked
Get naked
Get naked
Get naked
Get naked
Get naked
Get naked
Get naked
Take it off

I used to think
I had the answers to everything
But now I know

Your body gives
But then holds back
The sun is bright
The sky is black

Stronger than yesterday
I played with your heart,
got lost in the game
Oops!…I did it again
