"Toothbrush" as written by and James Alan - Ilya....
Baby, you don't have to rush
You can leave a toothbrush
At my place
At my place
We don't need to keep it hush
You can leave a toothbrush
At my place
At my place

Stuck in a limbo
Half hypnotized
Each time I let you stay the night, stay the night
Up in the morning
Tangled in sheets
We play the moment on repeat, on repeat

When you're standing there in your underwear
And my T-shirt from the night before
With your messed up hair
And your feet still bare
Would you mind closing the bedroom door (ah ooh)

Baby, you don't have to rush
You can leave a toothbrush
At my place
At my place
We don't need to keep it hush
You can leave a toothbrush
At my place
At my place
'Cause I just, I just can't let you go
Give me something I never know
So, baby, you don't have to rush
You can leave a toothbrush
At my place
At my place

No need to question next time we meet
I know you're coming home with me, home with me
Sweat like a sauna
Break out the ice
I know you're gonna stay the night, stay the night

When you're standing there in your underwear
And my T-shirt from the night before
With your messed up hair
And your feet still bare
Would you mind closing the bedroom door (ah ooh)

Baby, you don't have to rush
You can leave a toothbrush
At my place
At my place
We don't need to keep it hush
You can leave a toothbrush
At my place
At my place
'Cause I just, I just can't let you go
Give me something I never know
So, baby, you don't have to rush
You can leave a toothbrush
At my place
At my place

I don't want this to end
And there's no need to play pretend
If you stay with me again
Would you mind closing the bedroom door (ah ooh)

Baby, you don't have to rush
You can leave a toothbrush
At my place
At my place
We don't need to keep it hush
You can leave a toothbrush
At my place
At my place
'Cause I just, I just can't let you go
Give me something I never know
So, baby, you don't have to rush
You can leave a toothbrush
At my place
At my place

    My Interpretation"Toothbrush" is a fun song tweaking the hairline difference between flings and full-fledged relationships. The singer and some sweet girl are starting out and the song discusses a small and important moment in all relationships: How serious are we?

    Good question. They're young and having fun, but maybe ready to double-down and go the distance. They don't need to keep it hush. She doesn't need to rush out of his place in the pre-dawn.

    It's a song about the guy accepting that the relationship is real and that maybe he's at least a little in love. At the heart of their relationship, the couple is already pretty involved. He says: "No need to question next time we meet, I know you’re coming home with me, home with me... I know you’re gonna stay the night, stay the night." The toothbrush is a concrete way to acknowledge the new status they share and their newfound romantic attachment. Toothbrush at your lover's apartment? May as well be married and watching each other grow old.

    While light and fluffy with bubblegum perfection, "Toothbrush" transcends itself by riffing cleverly on one of the core themes in new relationships. The musical lightness hides a deepness that DNCE captures quite well. There's more to dental hardware than pearly whites.
