Sweet & Sour Lyrics from Genius.com
Best friend or my enemy
There’s never room for in between
First glance I’m a tangerine
Just wait and see what’s underneath
I’m an angel 'till you cross the line
Good girl but I’m doing time
One wink can make you sink inside
And turn your water into wine
I can be sweet or sour
Just be careful what you ask for
I can be sweet or sour
I was doing fine without ya
Yeah I’m cute on the internet
Don’t be fooled by the silhouette
Soft stepping but a step ahead
