Background[]

Logan Henderson described the creation of "Honey" as "a labor of love".[3] Initially written by Henderson and Kendall Schmidt along with Candace Sosa and producers cut&dry, the song was initially called "Money", before being completely re-written three different times. It was not finished and fully recorded until April 2022, during the band’s writing camp in Miami, Florida. Carlos PenaVega recalled being surprised when cut&dry first played the song, as he and James Maslow had not even known about it. PenaVega said the song was an instant favorite, recalling, "...all of us got into it, we're like, yo, actually, this song is great!" He joked that the song "has been through a lot".

Lyrics[]

Break my heart again
Nobody does it like you can
Hurt me so good I want it bad
Know how to keep me coming back
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ruin my night, ruin my life, control my mind
I coulda, woulda, I shoulda but never say goodbye
I never learn, with how it hurts, give me the worst
Put me through hell but it's heavenly and I don't know why
Whatever you're doin', doin' to me is criminal
I'll do the time, no I don't mind, baby I'll give it up

Chorus:
One, two, three
Already got me
Wherever you want me
A taste and I'm buzzin'
Sugar so sweet
I'm down on my knees
No use running
I'm stuck like honey on you
Oh woo, I'm stuck like honey on you
Oh woo, I'm stuck like honey on–

The way you only call at night
I can't resist to save my life (you know that)
In pieces when the morning comes
I can't deny that's half the fun
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ruin my night, ruin my life, control my mind
I coulda, woulda, I shoulda but never say goodbye
I never learn, with how it hurts, give me the worst
Put me through hell but it's heavenly and I don't know why
Whatever you're doin', doin' to me is criminal
I'll do the time, no I don't mind, baby I'll give it up

[Chorus]

Stuck like honey, I'm stuck like honey, I'm stuck like honey, on you
There's no use running, there's no use running, there's no use running
I'm stuck like honey
I'm stuck like honey on you
Oh woo, I'm stuck like honey on you
Oh woo, I'm stuck like honey on you

[Chorus]
