Here Are the Lyrics to 5 Seconds of Summer's 'Youngblood'

Tom Van Schelven
5 Seconds of Summer

5 Seconds of Summer has been having the summer of their lives, with Youngblood snagging them their third consecutive No. 1 album on the Billboard 200. "Youngblood," the swanky pop song sharing the album's title, tugs listeners back and forth with a shaky relationship narrative.

The track emulates the confusion of how someone could want their significant other out of their lives but need them at the same time. The struggle of discovering love and falling out of it and returning to its twisted hold on a rinse-and-repeat basis is something the band knew would resonate with fans, but the steady beat of the drums infiltrates the moody lyrics with positive energy. 

See the full lyrics below:

Remember the words you told me, love me 'til the day I die
Surrender my everything 'cause you made me believe you're mine
Yeah, you used to call me baby, now you calling me by name
Takes one to know one, yeah
You beat me at my own damn game

You push and you push and I'm pulling away
Pulling away from you
I give and I give and I give and you take, give and you take

Youngblood
Say you want me
Say you want me
Out of your life

And I'm just a dead man walking tonight
But you need it, yeah you need it
All of the time
Yeah, ooh ooh ooh

Youngblood
Say you want me
Say you want me
Back in your life

So I'm just a dead man crawling tonight
'Cause I need it, yeah I need it
All of the time
Yeah, ooh ooh ooh

Lately our conversations end like it's the last goodbye
Yeah, one of us gets too drunk and calls about a hundred times
So who you been calling baby, nobody could take my place
When you're looking at those strangers, hope to god you see my face

Youngblood
Say you want me
Say you want me
Out of your life

And I'm just a dead man walking tonight
But you need it, yeah you need it
All of the time
Yeah, ooh ooh ooh

Youngblood
Say you want me
Say you want me
Back in your life

So I'm just a dead man crawling tonight
'Cause I need it, yeah I need it
All of the time
Yeah, ooh ooh ooh

You push and you push and I'm pulling away
Pulling away from you
I give and I give and I give and you take, give and you take

You're running around and I'm running away
Running away from you, from you

Youngblood
Say you want me
Say you want me
Out of your life

And I'm just a dead man walking tonight
But you need it, yeah you need it
All of the time
Yeah, ooh ooh ooh

Youngblood
Say you want me
Say you want me
Back in your life

So I'm just a dead man crawling tonight
'Cause I need it, yeah I need it
All of the time
Yeah, ooh ooh ooh

You push and you push and I'm pulling away
Pulling away from you
I give and I give and I give and you take, give and you take

Youngblood
Say you want me
Say you want me
Out of your life

And I'm just a dead man walking tonight
