  • When I feel my phone buzzing, ain't even gotta look down
    I know it's you that's calling, a couple drinks in by now
    So I say hello, you say, hey, babe
    Say you're 'bout to catch a cab over to my place
    See you in five, but, baby, this time

    Stay downtown
    Keep moving your heels on the floor
    Let the bartender pour you up another round
    Tip the cover band, find another hand
    To dance and call him your rebound
    Another late night love, another last call crush
    With the neon shining down
    Girl, this time around, stay downtown

    Ain't gonna lie, if you knock on my door
    I'm gonna let you walk in
    Let you leave drunk lipstick marks like tattoos on my skin
    But you know in the morning
    We're gonna regret everything we did
    So why even start what ain't good for our hearts

    Stay downtown
    Keep moving your heels on the floor
    Let the bartender pour you up another round
    Tip the cover band, find another hand
    To dance and call him your rebound
    Another late night love, another last call crush
    With the neon shining down
    Girl, this time around, stay downtown

    Keep sipping your drink, keep spinning the room
    Keep chasing the night like you always do
    Keep letting the good times play
    Don't let me get in your way

    Stay downtown
    Keep moving your heels on the floor
    Let the bartender pour you up another round
    Tip the cover band, find another hand
    To dance and call him your rebound
    Another late night love, another last call crush
    With the neon shining down
    Girl, this time around, stay downtown
    Stay downtown
    Yeah, this time around, baby, stay downtown Writer/s: JOHN COLE TAYLOR, MATTHEW PETERS DRAGSTREM
