  • Oh, sweetheart, put the bottle down
    You've got too much talent
    I see you through those bloodshot eyes
    There's a cure, you've found it
    Slow motion, sparks, you've caught that chill
    Now don't deny it, but boys will be boys, oh, yes, they will
    They don't wanna define it
    Just give up the game and get into me
    If you're looking for thrills then get cold feet

    Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I go slow
    So if you want me, I don't come cheap
    Keep your hand in my hand, your heart on your sleeve
    Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I fall deep
    'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say goodnight

    I can't cook, no, but I can clean
    Up the mess she left
    Lay your head down and feel the beat
    As I kiss your forehead
    This may not last but this is now
    So love the one you're with
    You wanna chase but you're chasin' your tail
    A quick fix won't ever get you well

    Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I go slow
    So if you want me, I don't come cheap
    Keep your hand in my hand, your heart on your sleeve
    Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I fall deep
    'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say

    'Cause I feel, the distance
    Between us, could be over
    With the snap of your finger, Oh, no!

    Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I go slow
    So if you want me, I don't come cheap
    Keep your hand in my hand, your heart on your sleeve
    Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I fall deep
    'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight
    To say, 'cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight, to say goodnight

    Oh, sweetheart, put the bottle down
    'Cause you don't wanna miss out Writer/s: Greg Wells, Kara Dioguardi, Katy Perry

  • Kelly Clarkson Fan! from Clarkson StreetAHHHHHHHH! I absolutely love this song! along with 'never again' and 'behind these hazel eyes' they are all just so different to pop nowadays, it makes me realise how far music has come and how much I and many other fans are going to become displeased, what happens when all music is pure mechanistic to the point where nothing can be sung? if you're thinking that, well, only time will tell the future of music. could music possibly be going in this direction again? if so, wouls is sound computerised? there's nothing in the world that could possibly be worse than that! please go check out some of my personal favourite kelly Clarkson songs that are, as you know, listed in the second sentence. have a great day! and keep listening to kelly Clarkson no matter how evolved the future is! because I certainly will! ok, this paragraph is getting long so um, see ya!
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnThis song is poptastic!
  • Trever from Syracuse, NyThis is now the next single from "All I Ever Wanted"! "My Life Would Suck Without You" did amazing on the charts and this one should do the same! All the songs on the album are amazing! This really caught my attention when i first heard it. Kelly Clarkson is just amazing!
