See the “Want You Back” MV by Joanlee

It would seem that Joanlee is not content until a visual is released for nearly every song from his (nearly year old) Under the Radar mixtape. The most recent entry is “Want You Back”. This is, of course, another SmashHitta production, who has quickly made himself the go to guy for R&B & Pop tracks in the past couple of years. The video is stronger than the song itself, but feel free to disagree with me on that one.

VERSE 1:
Last night, I had the wildest dream
It was you and me and things were how they used to be
We were holding hands, shopping at the mall
A million different bags, from a million different stores
I swear everything we ever did was running thru my head
The first time that we kissed, the first time that we made love
I know you remember that,
And even when it’s not a dream I wished we could go back

PRE:
I realized, realized that I fucked up
By always being busy, to busy to spend more time
More time w/ you, instead of in the studio
I never should’a let you go

CHORUS:
But I was always too this or always too that
Now it’s too late and I want you back,
I want you back, back, back..
I want you back, back, back…
I was always too this or always to that
I heard you moved on but I want you back
I want you back, back, back…
I want you back, back, back…

VERSE 2:
And I swear, I never, I swear I never,
Not once did I ever do whatever you accused me of
All the bullshit you were hearing from your crew,
I put that on my music, none of it is true
I used to think, what I need to check in for,
But you were right, I really should’ve checked in more
I’ll do better, (better), I promise, (promise)
I haven’t been anything else but honest

PRE:
And I realized, realized that I fucked up
By always being busy, to busy to spend more time
More time w/ you, instead of being on the road
I never should’a let you go

CHORUS:
But I was always too this or always too that
Now it’s too late and I want you back,
I want you back, back, back..
I want you back, back, back…
I was always too this or always to that
I heard you moved on but I want you back
I want you back, back, back…
I want you back, back, back…

BRIDGE:
Why can’t we go back to how things used to be
I know it sounds crazy, baby but lately,
I just can’t stop thinking about you and me
It’s driving me out of my mind
Damn I want your touch, damn I want your kiss
Damn girl I want everything, cuz everything I miss
I miss you…and I didn’t see how I was hurting you

CHORUS:
But I was always too this or always too that
Now it’s too late and I want you back,
I want you back, back, back..
I want you back, back, back…
I was always too this or always to that
I heard you moved on but I want you back
I want you back, back, back…
I want you back, back, back… (2x’s)
