"I Wanna Go" as written by Savan Kotecha, Max Martin and Johan Schuster....
Lately I've been stuck imagining
What I wanna do and what I really think
Time to blow out

Be a little inappropriate
'Cause I know that everybody's thinking it
When the light's out

Shame on me
To need release
Uncontrollably

I wanna go all the way
Taking out my freak tonight
I wanna show all the dirt
I got running through my mind, whoa

I wanna go all the way
Taking out my freak tonight
I wanna show all the dirt
I got running through my mind, whoa

Lately people got me all tied up
There's a countdown waiting for me to erupt
Time to blow out

I've been told do what you do with it
We keep both my hands above the blanket
When the light's out

Shame on me
To need release
Uncontrollably

I wanna go all the way
Taking out my freak tonight
I wanna show all the dirt
I got running through my mind, whoa

I wanna go all the way
Taking out my freak tonight
I wanna show all the dirt
I got running through my mind, whoa

Shame on me
To need release
Uncontrollably

I wanna go all the way
Taking out my freak tonight
I wanna show all the dirt
I got running through my mind, whoa

I wanna go all the way
Taking out my freak tonight
I wanna show all the dirt
I got running through my mind, whoa

    General Commentlately, i've been stuck imagining what i wanna do,
    and what i really think.
    time to blow out.
    be a little inappropriate,
    cuz i know that everybody's thinkin it when the light's out.

    this is her way of saying that she hasn't had control of her life, so shes just thinking about what she wants to do with life. her thoughts are controlled. 'time to blow out' is her way of saying shes done imagining and shes gonna live her life how she wants to' 'be a little inappropriate cuz i know that everybody's thinkin it when the lights out' is self explanatory since all of you guys seem to think that this is about masturbation. everyone expects her to do something 'inappropriate' so shes going to just to mock.

    shame on me,
    to need release,
    uncontrollably,

    this is her saying that she needed to do her and live her life the way she wants to and all the judgement. shes basically saying 'shame on me' for living my life the way she wants to.

    i i i wanna go o o all the wa a ay,
    takin out my freak tonight
    i i i wanna sho o ow all the dirt i got runnin through my mind.
    woah.

    she wants to go 'all the way' meaning she wants to live her life completely the way SHE wants to. shes gonna call all the way on being herself. 'i wanna show all the dirt i got running through my mind' is she is gonna start speaking her mind.

    lately, people got me all tied up
    there's a countdown waiting for me to erupt,
    time to blow out.
    i've been told i should deal with it
    and keep both my hands above the blanket when the light's out

    the first 3 lines is saying that people need to stop living in the past. just because she lost her way in the past does not mean that she is that destructive of her life anymore and that she has grown up and now its her time to prove everyone wrong. the next two lines mean that shes been told to just deal with it instead of stating how she feels. to bite her tongue. to keep her mouth shut. to not take any action.


    that's what i got from the lyrics of this song. its more like piece of me than touch of my hand.

    Lyric CorrectionI hear "I i i wanna show o ow all the dirt I got runnin' through my mind" in the chorus.

    This song is amazing though, probably my fave on FF.

    General CommentI love this song!

    I love the little whistle beat in the part:
    "shame on me,
    to need release,
    uncontrollably."
