Brown eyes and lungs are filled up with smoke
Fast lives are stuck in the undertow
But you know the places I wanna go
Cause oh oh oh I've got a sickness you've got the cure
You've got the spark I've been looking for
And I got a plan we walk out the door
You know you wanna just let go
It's time to roll down the windows
Singing oh oh oh
We got all we need singers
So here we go

[Chorus]
Turn it up
It's five minutes to midnight
You're coming home with me tonight
I can't get enough, shakin' me up turn it up alright
At five minutes to midnight

You'll see our name in city lights
Well make the clock stop make your heart drop
It becomes alive
We could pack up and leave other things behind
No fact or fiction or story line
Cause I need you more than just for tonight your oh oh oh
All I care I can't stop my breathing in
I'm weak and you were my medicine
I won't stop til I am under your skin
You know you wanna just let go
It's time to roll down the window
Singing oh oh oh
We got all we need so here we go

[Chorus]

And when the clock strikes twelve
Will you find another boy
To go and kiss and tell
Cause you know I never will I think we could strike a match
And hold it to the wind to
See how long it lasts
We can make the time stand still

[Chorus:Repeat x2]
