  • Brown eyes and lungs are filled up with smoke
    Fast lives are stuck in the undertow
    But you know the places I wanna go
    Cause oh oh oh I've got a sickness you've got the cure
    You've got the spark I've been looking for
    And I got a plan we walk out the door
    You know you wanna just let go
    It's time to roll down the windows
    Singing oh oh oh
    We got all we need singers
    So here we go

    Turn it up
    It's five minutes to midnight
    You're coming home with me tonight
    I can't get enough, shakin' me up turn it up alright
    At five minutes to midnight

    You'll see our name in city lights
    Well make the clock stop make your heart drop
    It becomes alive
    We could pack up and leave other things behind
    No fact or fiction or story line
    Cause I need you more than just for tonight your oh oh oh
    All I care I can't stop my breathing in
    I'm weak and you were my medicine
    I won't stop til I am under your skin
    You know you wanna just let go
    It's time to roll down the window
    Singing oh oh oh
    We got all we need so here we go

    Turn it up
    It's five minutes to midnight
    You're coming home with me tonight
    I can't get enough, shakin' me up turn it up alright
    At five minutes to midnight

    And when the clock strikes twelve
    Will you find another boy
    To go and kiss and tell
    Cause you know I never will I think we could strike a match
    And hold it to the wind to
    See how long it lasts
    We can make the time stand still

    Turn it up
    It's five minutes to midnight
    You're coming home with me tonight
    I can't get enough, shakin' me up turn it up alright
    At five minutes to midnight

    Turn it up
    It's five minutes to midnight
    You're coming home with me tonight
    I can't get enough, shakin' me up turn it up alright
