Giving up control
It's clear that it's something you just don't know
You can do, you can do!
I'm the same way, too
Won't let me in the backseat
Cause I know for sure that it's on me
To let you drive (to let you drive)
It just don't feel right, oh yeah!
Too many hurts and too many feelings
Shouldn't be easy just to say I'm not changing
I'm walking away

Uh maybe it's time we (compromise)
Let's chop it up and get to a (solution)
Ain't no need to take it there, let's call that (compromise)
Make a love, play 60 for the (resolution)
We gotta have to make some compromises, lady!
Uh it's called a compromise (compromise)
It's called a compromise (compromise)
Oh oh oh, go!

Setting up your defense,
Playing it so damn hard to get
That's your let down
Can nobody hurt you now!
I had 'em all chick after chick
And I let em go and then say I commit
You couldn't tell me (tell me)
Just what I was missing
Too many hurts and too many feelings
Shouldn't be easy just to say I'm not changing
I'm walking away!
Maybe it's time we

Chorus:
(Compromise)
Let's chop it up and get to a (solution)
Ain't no need to take it there, let's call that (compromise)
Make a love, play 60 for the (resolution)
We gotta have to make some compromises, lady!
Uh it's called a compromise (compromise)
It's called a compromise (compromise)
Oh oh oh, go!

I think it's time we change it up
Don't you think it's time we change it up, change it up, girl
Get through this fading life to all
To all to all to all to all
Compromise
Let's chop it up and get to a solution
(Let's come up with a solution, baby)
(Compromise)
Make a love play 60 for the resolution
We're gonna have to make some compromises, baby

Chorus:
(Compromise)
Let's chop it up and get to a (solution)
Ain't no need to take it there, let's call that (compromise)
Make a love play 60 for the (resolution)
We gotta have to make some compromises, lady!
Uh it's called a compromise (compromise)
It's called a compromise (compromise)
Oh oh oh, go!
