If you need a guide to follow along with Teddy Swims’ “Lose Control,” find the lyrics below:

Something’s got a hold of me lately
No, I don’t know myself anymore
Feels like the walls are all closin’ in
And the devil’s knockin’ at my door, whoa

Out of my mind, how many times
Did I tell you I’m no good at bein’ alone?
Yeah, it’s takin’ a toll on me, tryin’ my best to keep
From tearin’ the skin off my bones, don’t you know

I lose control
When you’re not next to me (when you’re not here with me)
I’m fallin’ apart right in front of you, can’t you see?
I lose control
When you’re not next to me, mm-hm
Yeah, you’re breakin’ my heart, baby
You make a mess of me

Problematic
Problem is I want your body like a fiend, like a bad habit
Bad habits hard to break when I’m with you
Yeah, I know, I could do it on my own
But I want that real full moon black magic and it takes two
Problematic
Problem is when I’m with you, I’m an addict
And I need some relief, my skin in your teeth
Can’t see the forest through the trees
Got me down on my knees, darlin’ please, oh

I lose control
When you’re not next to me (when you’re not here with me)
I’m fallin’ apart right in front of you, can’t you see?
I lose control
When you’re not next to me, mm-hm
Yeah, you’re breakin’ my heart, baby
You make a mess of me, yeah

When you’re not here with me, mm-hm
Yeah, you’re breakin’ my heart, baby
You make a mess of me

Jeff Jarrett Recalls How Taylor Swift Was ‘Like a Big Sister’ to His Daughters After His Wife Died

One of the WWE Hall of Famer's daughters starred in the singer's "Mine" music video in 2010.

If singing didn’t pan out, Taylor Swift could’ve made her name in babysitting. In a recent interview with WREGNews Channel 3, pro wrestler Jeff Jarrett revealed that the 34-year-old pop star used to watch his three daughters when she was a teenager — something that was extra meaningful as his wife Jill Gregory had just passed away.

“She’s a friend of the family,” Jarrett told the organization. “Very good to my family during a very dark period in our family. My wife got sick and she passed away, but Taylor was like a big sister and came over and took the girls, baking cookies and just kinda hung out at the house.”
