 (FULL REWRITE)

 
 

NOTE: All text in BOLD has been rewritten. All PLAIN TEXT was written by the ORIGINAL songwriters below
Original songwriter(s): Jason Quenneville ("DAHEALA"), Abel Tesfaye ("The WEEKND") and Ed Sheeran

I roam the streets late at night
Bumming cigs (Marlboro Lites)
Talking shit and getting high
Ain't been sober since Cobain died

No, I'm not known for being real sweet
But I'll light your smokes and I'll be honest
Your Momma told you to watch out for boys like me
Listen honey, there's two types of bad guys...

I'm the good kind
I'll give you just what you need
I'll lay your head down when you're falling asleep
I'm the good kind
Baby, I'll knock out all of his teeth if he tries anything in front of me
I'm the good kind, I'm the good kind

Fuck the cops, we crackin' jokes
Mug shots and stick-n-pokes
These mean streets are all I know
 Blacken eyes and broken bones

No, I'm not known for being real sweet
But I'll light your smokes and I'll be honest
Your Momma told you to watch out for boys like me
Listen honey, there's two types of bad guys...

I'm the good kind
I'll give you just what you need
I'll lay your head down when you're falling asleep
I'm the good kind
Baby, I'll knock out all of his teeth if he tries anything in front of me
I'm the good kind, I'm the good kind 

I'm the good kind, you've heard it so many times I know
Watching your back but still holding out hope
That maybe someone could understand how to hold
You when you're lonely at night

I'm the good kind
I'll give you just what you need
I'll lay your head down when you're falling asleep
I'm the good kind
Baby, I'll knock out all of his teeth if he tries anything in front of me
I'm the good kind
 
I'm the good kind
I'll give you just what you need
I'll lay your head down when you're falling asleep
I'm the good kind
I'll knock out all of his teeth if he tries anything in front of me
I'm the good kind
I'm the good kind
I'm the good kind
