One time I knew her and I must confess,
She wasn't always like this,
She's a staggering mess.
But she looks so good in her cocktail dress,
But it doesn't hide the fact her face is worn with regret.
You say she's dress top notch with a look that could kill,
But she says that dress is to make to you think her life is fulfilled.
Watch her heart beat faster as she's walking along,
And her pulse is pounding to the beat of this song.

It's time for resolutions,
It's time to make some quick decisions,
She will never make it out alive.
'Cause all she has,
Is walking out.
And this will change the rest of her life,
Just this time.

Heart beats pounding as she's walking along,
And her slurred tongue is speaking with a sensual tone.
She used to be the type that said she wouldn't be,
Cautious of the ground she walks on.
Now look she's dancing and she's feeling alive,
One or two more shots and she'll be doing just fine.
But she's starving herself,
For attention, for attraction,
Just to heighten the tension and the need for some action.

It's time for resolutions,
It's time to make some quick decisions,
She will never make it out alive.
'Cause all she has,
Is walking out.
And this will change the rest of her life,
Just this time.

Shake it, shake it, shake it baby,
I can't feel your pulse.
Shake it, shake it baby,
You got what everybody wants.
Shake it, shake it, shake it baby,
I can't feel your pulse.
Wake up baby this is more than just a blackout.

Shake it, shake it, shake it baby,
I can't feel your pulse.
Shake it, shake it baby,
You got what everybody wants.
Shake it, shake it, shake it baby,
I can't feel your pulse.
Wake up baby this is more than just a blackout.

Time for resolutions,
It's time to make some big decisions,
She will never make it out alive.
'Cause all she had,
Is walking out.
Will this last the rest of her life?
Just this time,
Just this time,
Just this time.

Just this time,
Just this time.
And this will change the rest of your life,
This time.
