Come on, let go now
Kick off your shoes
Turn out the light
And love me tonight

Pull down the shade
Turn out the light
And love me tonight

Don't think about tomorrow
It don't matter anymore
We can turn the key
And lock the world outside the door
I need you so now
Come on, let go now
Kick off your shoes
Turn out the light
And love me tonight

I need you so now
Come on, let go now
Pull down the shade
Turn out the light
And love me tonight
