It’s late for no other reason
You’re here and I am in the light
And I know what’s best for me
But I’d rather do what feels good

Don’t mix your work with your pleasure
Don’t say it – hint, but don’t tell
Maybe I’m too subtle for you, baby
So listen to the words I don’t say

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

You say that everything is scripted
But sometimes you surprise yourself
Though I may live to regret this
I’ll still try
I’ll still try
I’ll still try to make you stay.
