  • Grown up
    She just turned 16
    Stuck in the moment
    Dead at the scene
    And it's on tonight
    This is the life that you wanted, right?
    So turn off all the lights
    Dressed up just like a movie star
    At all the parties they'll know who you are
    Wouldn't it be great, to be fashionably late?
    So why don't you wait, till you're sedated

    Don't it feel like something's not right in his kiss tonight?

    Yeah what I'm saying is do you, do you want to lose it all?
    Cause this is more than just a dance hall drug
    You can't wait to fall in love
    All I'm saying is do you, do you want to learn to fly?
    Then you should pack it up and say goodbye
    Cause when the push comes to the shove
    It's just a dance hall drug

    Step in and you can lock the door
    The candles are lit and the clothes on the floor
    You could take a chance on finding romance
    Now you're holding hands
    But he's got other plans
    Tick-tock, the clock is turning red
    The room won't stop spinning and thoughts in your head
    And it's too late
    You feel like you're making a big mistake
    You should've waited

    Don't it feel like something's not right in his kiss tonight?

    Yeah what I'm saying is do you, do you want to lose it all?
    Cause this is more than just a dance hall drug
    You can't wait to fall in love
    All I'm saying is do you, do you want to learn to fly?
    Then you should pack it up and say goodbye
    Cause when the push comes to the shove
    It's just a dance hall drug

    Just wait love
    Show 'em what you're made of

    Don't it feel like something's not right in his kiss tonight?

    Do you, do you want to lose it all?
    Cause this is more than just a dance hall drug
    You can't wait to fall in love
    All I'm saying is do you, do you want to learn to fly?
    Then you should pack it up and say goodbye
    Cause when the push comes to the shove
    It's just a dance hall drug
    Do you, do you want to lose it all?
    Cause this is more than just a dance hall drug
    You can't wait to fall in love
    All I'm saying is do you, do you want to learn to fly?
    Then you should pack it up and say goodbye
    Cause when the push comes to the shove
    It's just a dance hall drug Writer/s: MARTIN JOHNSON
