  • This is one small step for woman
    One giant leap for woman-kind

    I'd rather be alone tonight
    You can say "I love you" through the phone tonight
    Really don't wanna be in your arms tonight
    I'll just use my covers to stay warm tonight
    Think I'm better off here all alone tonight
    Ain't no checkin' on when I get home tonight
    Just makin' sure I'm good on my own tonight
    Even though there isn't nothin' wrong tonight

    Yeah, I'm just sayin', baby
    I can't really miss you if I'm with you
    And when I miss you, it'll change the way I kiss you
    Baby, you know time apart is beneficial
    It's like I'm the universe and you'll be N-A-S-A

    Give you the whole world, I'ma need space
    I'ma need space, I'ma, I'ma need
    You know I'm a star; space, I'ma need space
    I'ma need space, I'ma, I'ma need space (N-A-S-A)
    Give you the whole world, I'ma need space
    I'ma need space, I'ma, I'ma need
    You know I'm a star; space, I'ma need space
    I'ma need space, I'ma, I'ma need space (N-A-S-A)

    Bottom line
    Usually I would love it if you stay the night
    I just think I'm on another page tonight
    It ain't nothing wrong with saying I need me time
    Usually I would orbit around you
    But gravity seems to be the only thing that's pulling me
    You'll be my rise and shine soon as them stars align, mmm

    Baby, I can't really miss you if I'm with you
    And when I miss you, it'll change the way I kiss you
    Baby, you know time apart is beneficial
    It's like I'm the universe and you'll be N-A-S-A

    Give you the whole world, I'ma need space
    I'ma need space, I'ma, I'ma need
    You know I'm a star; space, I'ma need space
    I'ma need space, I'ma, I'ma need space (N-A-S-A)
    Give you the whole world, I'ma need space
    I'ma need space, I'ma, I'ma need
    You know I'm a star; space, I'ma need space
    I'ma need space, I'ma, I'ma need space (N-A-S-A)

    You don't wanna leave me, but I'm tryna self-discover
    Keep me in your orbit and you know you'll drag me under
    You don't wanna leave me, but I'm tryna self-discover
    (You don't wanna leave me, but I'm tryna self-discover)
    Keep me in your orbit and you know you'll drag me under
    (Keep me in your orbit and you know you'll drag me under)

    I'd rather be alone tonight
    You can say "I love you" through the phone tonight, mmm mm Writer/s: Ariana Grande, Charles Anderson, Charles Michael Anderson, Michael Foster, Taylor Monet Parks, Taylor Parks, Thomas Brown, Thomas Lee Brown, Victoria McCants, Victoria Monet McCants
