Said her name was romance, I said I'm impulsive.
Swallowed my nerve and ate my dignity.
I think I'm making progress, she's faking naive,
All this false innocence amuses me.

I don't mean to rush, or be obvious
But like a magnet you keep pulling me.
Into fixation, this mad compulsion.
Don't wanna stop. Will you come with me?

Can I take you home?
Open yourself up to me and surrender.
Can I take you home?
We lock out the world and we'll stay here forever.
Say it to me, three letters.
Fall from your mind to your mouth.
Can I take you home?

Am I second guessing?
Am I asking too much?
One simple word will set the record straight.
Betrayed by clenched hands.
Wear your smile like a mask.
Your tightened fists, they give your heart away.

I don't mean to rush, or be obvious,
But my impatience keeps on dragging me
Into temptation, this mad compulsion.
And tell me now, will you come with me?

Can I take you home?
Open yourself up to me and surrender.
Can I take you home?
We lock out the world and we'll stay here forever
Say it to me, three letters.
Fall from your mind to your mouth
Can I take you home?

Said her name was romance, I said I'm impulsive.
Betrayed by clenched hands.
Wear your smile like a mask.

Can I take you home?
Open yourself up to me and surrender.
Can I take you home?
We'll lock out the world, and we'll stay here forever
Say it to me, three letters.
Fall from your mind to your mouth.
[X2]

Can I take you home?
