Lyrics

[Verse 1]

If you only once would let me

Only just one time

Then be happy with the consequence

With whatever's going to happen tonight

Don't think we're not serious

When's it ever not?

The love we make is give and it's take

I'm game to play along

[Pre-Chorus]

All I can say, I should've said

[Chorus]

Can we take a ride?

Get out of this place while we still have time

[Verse 2]

The best DJs are saving their slowest song for last

When the dance is through, it's me and you

Come on, would it really be so bad?

The things we think might be the same

But I won't fight for more

It's just not me to wear it on my sleeve

Count on that for sure


[Pre-Chorus] All I can say, I should've said


[Chorus]

Can we take a ride? Get out of this place while we still have time

You want to take a ride? Get out of this place while we still have time

Yeah, we still have time [Bridge]

I can't say I was never wrong But some blame rests on you

Work and play, they're never okay to mix the way we do [Pre-Chorus]

All I can say I should've said [Chorus]

Can we take a ride? Get out of this place while we still have time

You want to take a ride? Get out of this place while we still have time

And we still have time
