Oh, sweetheart, put the bottle down
You've got too much talent
I see you through those bloodshot eyes
There's a cure, you've found it
Slow motion, sparks, you've caught that chill
Now don't deny it
But boys will be boys, oh, yes, they will
They don't wanna define it
Just give up the game and get into me
If you're looking for thrills then get comfy

Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I go slow
So if you want me, I don't come cheap
Keep your hand in my hand, your heart on your sleeve
Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I fall deep
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight
To say goodnight

I can't cook, no, but I can clean
Up the mess she left
Lay your head down and feel the beat
As I kiss your forehead
This may not last but this is now
So love the one you're with
You wanna chase but you're chasin' your tail
A quick fix won't ever get you well

Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I go slow
So if you want me, I don't come cheap
Keep your hand in my hand, your heart on your sleeve
Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I fall deep
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight
To say...

'Cause I feel
The distance
Between us
Could be over
With the snap of your finger, Oh, no!

Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I go slow
So if you want me, I don't come cheap
Keep your hand in my hand, your heart on your sleeve
Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I fall deep
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight
To say...
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight
To say goodnight

Oh, sweetheart, put the bottle down
'Cause you don't wanna miss out

    Mutt244: Fact, no one cares. It's easy to criticise someone, but it's not easy to do what they do. And trust me, you should really learn how to spell before you tell someone else to learn that; those aren't facts, you made them up. Fail. It's kind of pathetic to come back five days later when you say you supposedly don't care.
    And I really like this song. the first few words kind of just really stand out... and I'm glad there are more pop songs that aren't about superficial, silly little relationships that last a week.

    Kelly is saying she doesn't hook up and that she wants a real relationship with someone who really cares for her. Someone who isn't trying to buy her cheap.
