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 sex. 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 sex. 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.

    The lead singer said:

    So many kids are growing up too fast. 13 year olds are giving each other hand jobs in the back of the bus, 14 year olds are already drinking and partying, and kids spend more time worried about growing up and being cool than they do actually growing up and being a kid.

    I liked the way Peace Love Music put it with "love is [thought of as] just another dance hall drug". It sums up every 12-16 year old. What's scary is that this thought is leaking into 20 year olds and counting. Everyone feels like sex is the way to show your love for someone. The Bible says that NOT having sex is how you show love... But even if you're not a Christian, understand that "TRUE LOVE WAITS". Each person is only meant to have sex with one person (and of the opposite sex) and the time to have sex with that person is AFTER marriage.

    this song is awesome XD best friggin song eva!!!
    it also brings up a pretty important issue. teens are having sex because they want to lose their virginity. they think they love someone, and then the relationship falls apart because they started having sex instead of talking. makes a good point XD
