And baby take it off, checkered thighs on a pretty pawn
This vicious velvet ain't enough
So baby make a move, my neon eyes are set on you
The devil's language tastes of lust

Tell me what can I say
(What can I say? What can I say?)
To make your body come this way?
(Won't you come this way?)

We're only two in a crowded room
(A crowded room, a crowded room)
Where others fade away
(Others fade away)

It's only a crime if I get caught
Only if I, if I get caught
It's only a line if it gets bought

I woke up 12:05, I left that room with no goodbye
And now I'm on my way back home
That's why I'm telling you it's not that your lipstick failed
But girl I was just born to bail, do it better on my own

Tell me what can I say
(What can I say? What can I say?)
To make your body come this way?
(Won't you come this way?)

We're only two in a crowded room
(A crowded room, a crowded room)
Where others fade away
(Others fade away)

It's only a crime if I get caught
Only if I, if I get caught
It's only a line if it gets bought

It's the same game I play till the give becomes the take
(What can I say? What can I say?)
It's the same game I play till the bend
The bend becomes the break

And baby take it off, checkered thighs on a pretty pawn
This vicious velvet ain't enough
So baby make a move, my neon eyes are set on you
The devil's language tastes of lust

It's only a line if it gets bought

It's the same game I play till the give becomes the take
(What can I say? What can I say?)
It's the same game I play till the give becomes the take
(Won't you come this way?)

It's the same game I play till the give becomes the take
(What can I say? What can I say?)
It's the same game I play till the bend
The bend becomes the break
