Bad Things is a single by Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello and was released on October 14, 2016.

Background Edit

In a since deleted tweet, Camila said the song [to her] was about "the juxtaposition between the innocence of the ‘good’ girl who has these feelings for a ‘bad’ boy that she can’t deny." The song also interpolates Fireball's 1998 song "Out of My Head" during the chorus with the line[s], "Am I out of my head? / Am I out of my mind?"

Lyrics

Camila:
Am I out of my head?
Am I out of my mind?
If you only knew the bad things I like
Don’t think that I can explain it
What can I say?, it’s complicated

No matter what you say
Don’t matter what you do
I only wanna do bad things to you
So good, that you can’t explain it
What can I say, it’s complicated

Machine Gun Kelly:
Nothing’s that bad
If it feels good
So you come back
Like I knew you would
And we’re both wild
And the night’s young
And you’re my drug
Breathe you in ’til my face numb
Drop it down to that bass drum
I got what you dream about
Nails scratching my back tatt
Eyes closed while you scream out
And you keep me in with those hips
While my teeth sink in those lips
While your body’s giving me life
And you suffocating my kiss
Then you said

Machine Gun Kelly (with ad-libs):
I want you forever
Even when we’re not together
Scars on my body so I can take you wherever
like I want you forever
Even when we’re not together
Scars on my body I can look at you whenever

Camila:
Am I out of my head?
Am I out of my mind?
If you only knew the bad things I like
Don’t think that I can explain it
What can I say, it’s complicated

No matter what you say
Don’t matter what you do
I only wanna do bad things to you
So good, that you can’t explain it
What can I say, it’s complicated

Machine Gun Kelly (Camila):
Hey, I can’t explain it
I love the pain
And I love the way your breath
Melts me of novacaine
And we are (U-uh, uh, uh)
Always high
Keep it strange
Okay, yeah, I’m insane (Okay, I'm insane)
(with Camila: But you the same)
Let me paint the picture (Yeah)
Couch by the kitchen (Yeah)
Nothing but your heels on
Losing our religion (Mmm)
You’re my pretty little vixen
And I’m the voice inside your head
That keeps telling you to listen to all the bad things I say
And you said

I want you forever
Even when we’re not together (I like you bae, yeah)
Scars on my body so I can take you wherever
like I want you forever
Even when we’re not together (O-oh, oh, oh)
Scars on my body I can look at you whenever

Camila (Machine Gun):
Am I out of my head?
Am I out of my mind?
If you only knew the bad things I like
Don’t think that I can explain it
What can I say, it’s complicated

No matter what you say
Don’t matter what you do (Hey)
I only wanna do (with Machine Gun: bad things to you)
So good, that you can’t explain it
What can I say, it’s complicated

The way we love, is so unique (Hey, hey, hey)
And when we touch, I’m shivering
And no one has to get it
Just you and me (Right)
Cause we’re just living
Between the sheets (You said)

Camila & Machine Gun Kelly (Machine Gun ad-libs):
I want you forever
Even when we’re not together
Scars on my body so I can take you wherever
like I want you forever
Even when we’re not together (Camila: Woah, oh, oh)
Scars on my body (Camila: Yeah) I can look at you whenever
(Camila: Oh, babe!)

Camila (Machine Gun):
Am I out of my head?
(Am I) Am I out of my mind? (Am I)
If you only knew the bad things I like (The things only we know)
Don’t think that I can explain it (Camila: Yeah)
What can I say, it’s complicated (Yeah)
No matter what you say
Don’t matter what you do (Do, do, do)
I only wanna do (with Machine Gun: bad things to you) (Camila: Yeah)
So good, that you can’t explain it (So good) (Camila: Oh, babe!)
What can I say, it’s complicated
