  • Settle back now and raise a toast
    To the young ones, growing old
    All the green lights, long nights
    Drinking 'til I made out with you

    Just sit back, enjoy the show
    It's the weekend, no place to go
    You're the cherry, I'm a cigarette
    Chasing after midnight with you

    Don't shut me down now
    Just hear me out now

    Don't you go and carry on with your life
    It was a one night stand 'til I woke up next to you
    Don't you go, saying all your goodbyes
    I want a one night stand just one more time with you
    So give me one more night with you
    Give me one more night with you

    So take a breath now, you don't have to go
    It was a fast night, we can take it slow
    There were fist fights, red lights
    Running 'til I crashed into you

    I got my ass kicked, but you held the ice
    I was a train wreck, but you took the ride
    Can we stay here, right here?
    Nothing else that I wanna do

    Don't shut me down now
    Just hear me out now

    Don't you go and carry on with your life
    It was a one night stand 'til I woke up next to you
    Don't you go, saying all your goodbyes
    I want a one night stand just one more time with you
    So give me one more night with you

    You say I've pushed my luck
    But I can't get enough
    If it was just a one time thing
    Why are you still here with me?
    Don't want a single thing to change
    We can mess around for two more days
    If it was just a one time thing
    Why are you still here with me?
    (I don't want you to leave)

    Don't you go and carry on with your life
    It was a one night stand 'til I woke up next to you
    Don't you go, saying all your goodbyes
    I want a one night stand just one more time with you
    So give me one more night with you

    You say I've pushed my luck
    But I can't get enough
    If it was just a one time thing
    Why are you still here with me?
    Don't want a single thing to change
    We can mess around for two more days
    I want a one night stand just one more time with you
    So give me one more night with you Writer/s: ALEXANDER GASKARTH, JOHN WILLIAM FELDMANN, NICHOLAS FURLONG
