  • Lyrics
  • This is about the desire to make love for the first time in a relationship. The line "This is not the Ritz whatever" is reference to the luxury hotel chain. "This isn't meant to be a backseat love affair" is implying that this is not about a one-night-stand, but rather the beginning of a meaningful relationship.
  • Outfield guitarist John Spinks wrote this. >>
