LyricsEdit

In the car, in the car
In the backseat, I'm your baby
We go fast, we go so fast, we don't move
I believe in a place you take me
Make you real proud of your baby

In your car, I'm a star and I'm burnin' through you
In your car, I'm a star and I'm burnin' through you

Oh, be my once in a lifetime
Lying on your chest, in my party dress
I'm a fucking mess but I
Oh, thanks for the high life
Baby, it's the best, passed the test
And yes, now I'm here with you and I

Would like to think that you would stick around
You know that I just die to make you proud
The taste, the touch, the way we love
It all comes down to make the sound of our love song

Dream a dream, here's a scene
Touch me anywhere 'cause I'm your baby
Grab my waist, don't waste any part
I believe that you see me for who I am
So spill my clothes on the floor of your new car

Is it safe, is it safe, to just be who we are?
Is it safe, is it safe, to just be who we are?

Oh, be my once in a lifetime
Lying on your chest, in my party dress
I'm a fucking mess but I
Oh, thanks for the high life
Baby, it's the best, passed the test
And yes, now I'm here with you and I

Would like think that you would stick around
You know that I just die to make you proud
The taste, the touch, the way we love
It all comes down to make the sound of our love song

The taste, the touch, the way we love
It all comes down to make the sound of our love song
