Miley Cyrus - Gimme What I Want

[Verse 1]
Midnight and the moon is out
Careful, you might hurt yourself
Pleasure leads to pain
To me, they're both the same
Sweat drippin' down to the floor
Bite marks like an animal
You might be insane
But maybe we're the same

Tonight you came here
'Cause you know what I need
And no one likes to be alone

I don't need a future, I don't need your past
I just need a lover
So gimme what I want or I'll give it to my
Self-inflicted torture, you don't have to ask
I just need a lover
So gimme what I want or I'll give it to myself

[Verse 2]
I can tell that you're new to this
Slow it down, but you can't resist
Beat your fantasy
Give yourself to me

"Gimme What I Want" reflects on the choice that the singer gives to someone else, to be her lover – but if they don't want it, she'd be alright by herself. It has a sound very similar to Nine Inch Nails' "Closer", which is also a song about lust. Miley had already previously recorded a cover from the band for the Netflix series Black Mirror, called "Head Like a Hole".
