Oh, sweetheart, put the bottle down;
You've got too much talent.
I see you through those bloodshot eyes,
There's a cure, you'd found it.

Slow motion sparks, you 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 lookin' for thrils,
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 thing in your pants,
Your heart on your sleeve.
Oh, no.
I do not hook up, up.
I fall deep.
Because 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 you 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 thing in your pants,
Your heart on your sleeve.
Oh, no.
I do not hook up, up.
I fall deep.
Because the more that you try,
The harder I'll fight
To say goodnight.

Because I feel the distance
Between us could be over
With a snap of your finger.
Oh, oh, oh, yeah.

Oh, no.
I do not hook up, up.
I go slow.
So if you want me,
I don't come cheap.
Keep your thing in your pants,
Your heart on your sleeve.
Oh, no.
I do not hook up, up.
I fall deep.
Because the more that you try,
The harder I'll fight
To say goodnight.

Oh, sweetheart, put the bottle down,
Because you don't wanna miss out.

    General CommentThis has become one of my favorite songs after listening to it for awhile. This song is obvious my favorite lyric is "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."
    I love this because every guy that ive met has always tried to get with me and has always pushed me further into something I didn't want so I think this song explains what I would want rather than what I have had.
