  • I just woke up next to this chick who I don't know
    And I'll probably never see her again
    I can't remember what I did last night

    When behind the shades is the only place you can hide
    And your waking thought is more often than not where am I?
    Still pissed, and a half-empty bottle of liquor's
    The only liquid you can find
    Too busy to reminisce over a time when you have time
    And all you wanna do is chill, baby hold onto
    Something that you can feel
    That ain't too much to ask for, is it?
    When you no longer look like the you in your passport picture
    All you wanna do is turn over and find her
    Normally turn over and you find her
    But this time I turned over and I found you
    Though we might not get to know what this might amount to

    I just woke up next to this chick who I don't know
    And I'll probably never see her again
    I can't remember what I did last night
    Let alone last weekend
    I'd always wanted to live the fast life
    'Til it started speeding up
    Now I'm here living the fast life
    Good luck keeping up

    A life that went from canap's to classic champagne
    Cocktails to cigarette butts and champagne flutes
    Rolled up notes, a few lines of coke
    One hell of a headache and two piles of clothes
    Room full of smoke, eyes full of sleep
    A plane I've gotta catch and a bed I don't wanna leave
    I don't wanna leave you, I wanna wake you
    But I should let you sleep through, you look so peaceful
    Tiptoeing as I'm rushing to get my things together
    Too many pieces of puzzles for me to piece together
    Maybe I'll leave a letter, in the hope that
    When she wakes, she remembers me and that we fell asleep together
    But likely she remembered nothing
    Woke up in a rush and huffing at how Stephen kept her knocking
    Grabbed her things, didn't see the letter, let alone open it
    Stepped over it on her way out and never even noticed it

    I just woke up next to this chick who I don't know
    And I'll probably never see her again
    I can't remember what I did last night
    Let alone last weekend
    I'd always wanted to live the fast life
    'Til it started speeding up
    Now I'm here living the fast life
    Good luck keeping up

    I just woke up next to this chick who I don't know
    And I'll probably never see her again
    I can't remember what I did last night
    Let alone last weekend
    I'd always wanted to live the fast life
    'Til it started speeding up
    Now I'm here living the fast life
    Good luck keeping up Writer/s: JAMES MURRAY, MUSTAFA OMER, STEVEN MARSDEN
