Grown up
She just turned 16
Stuck in the moment
Dead at the scene
And it's on tonight
This is the life that you wanted, right?
So turn off all the lights

Dressed up just like a movie star
At all the parties they'll know who you are
Wouldn't it be great,
To be fashionably late?
So why don't you wait,
Till you're sedated

Don't it feel like something's not right
In his kiss tonight?

Yeah what I'm saying is do you,
Do you want to lose it all?
Cause this is more than just a dance hall drug
You can't wait to fall in love

All I'm saying is do you,
Do you want to learn to fly?
Then you should pack it up and say goodbye
Cause when the push comes to the shove
It's just a dance hall drug

Step in and you can lock the door
The candles are lit and the clothes on the floor
You could take a chance on finding romance
Now you're holding hands

But he's got other plans
Tick-tock, the clock is turning red
The room won't stop spinning and thoughts in your head
And it's too late
You feel like you're making a big mistake
You should've waited

Don't it feel like something's not right
In his kiss tonight?

Yeah what I'm saying is do you, do you want to lose it all?
Cause this is more than just a dance hall drug
You can't wait to fall in love

All I'm saying is do you, do you want to learn to fly?
Then you should pack it up and say goodbye
Cause when the push comes to the shove
It's just a dance hall drug

Just wait love
Show 'em what you're made of
Don't it feel like something's not right,
In his kiss tonight?

Do you, do you want to lose it all?
Cause this is more than just a dance hall drug
You can't wait to fall in love

All I'm saying is do you, do you want to learn to fly?
Then you should pack it up and say goodbye
Cause when the push comes to the shove
It's just a dance hall drug

Do you, do you want to lose it all?
Cause this is more than just a dance hall drug
You can't wait to fall in love

All I'm saying is do you, do you want to learn to fly?
Then you should pack it up and say goodbye
Cause when the push comes to the shove
It's just a dance hall drug

    I think it means that there's this girl, and she's with her boyfriend. They go into a room to watch a movie or something like that, and he locks the door. She's sitting there with him one minute, holding hands, the next they're lying there, clothes on the floor and cast off to the side, having s*. As she's lying there with him, she realizes she should have saved her virginity; that this was a huge mistake. She wanted so badly to fall for this guy, and she thought he would be the one, and he rushed her into having s*. She couldn't say no, therefore it's like she's under the influence of ecstasy, a club drug, giving this song its name. She isn't really high or anything, she just has strong feelings for this guy, and she doesn't want to ruin the relationship. In this sense, love is just another dance hall drug that will make us do stupid things, and that's probably the message of the song. That's just my interpretatation. I'm not saying it's right, I'm not saying it's wrong. It's just what I think.

    I think the meaning of this song is to save your virginity and love for someone better. A real boyfriend won't rush you to have s** and possibly rape you. A real boyfriend will accept the fact that you will wait and possibly, he will do it, too. Love is just another drug that needs to be used very carefully. Overdose on it, you'll end up with a baby, a boyfriend who obiously hates you, and regret.
