Smash & Grab
Juliette Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I know, fuck, okay let's start
Hit it, kill it

Smash and grab I stole your heart
Burning rubber baby, right from the start
I'm on another bender, breaking at your knees
Don't ask for mercy till you learn how to please
A high planes drifter, here comes the sun
Oh my God, put down your gun
Look for my shoes, I turn on the light
Come on baby, let's fight, fight, fight, yeah
Yeah, we're gonna rock it, rock it tonight

Pressure's running high, jumping over barricades
Oh my God, I'm in a hot pursuit
Cops on the chase, broken bones and sucking face
Looking for you, I'm in a hot pursuit

I'm all in love with love again
You said it honey no time to spend
Living on the road I don't need no sleep
Looking for a dude who packs some heat
Pretty police lights glowing red
Like the blood in your face when I tore up your bed

Hey
(We gonna rock it)
Hey
(We gonna rock it)
We gonna rock it, gonna rock it tonight

Pressure's running high, jumpin' over barracades
Oh my God I'm in a hot pursuit
Cops on the chase, broken bones and suckin' face
Lookin' for you I'm in a hot pursuit

Picking up on speed giving in to need
No time to lose were in a hot pursuit
Pumpin' piston steel, muscle rippin' up my feel
Get it in quick were in a hot pursuit

Get low, low, low, we're gonna keep it low, low, low
In my four on the floor
Hey
(Rock it)
Yeah
(Rock it)
We gonna rock it, gonna rock it tonight

Pressure's running high, jumpin' over barracades
Oh my God I'm in a hot pursuit
Cops on the chase, broken bones and suckin' face
Lookin' for you, I'm in a hot pursuit

Picking up on speed giving in to need
No time to lose we're in a hot pursuit
Pumpin' piston steel, muscle rippin' up my feel




Get it in quick were in a
Hot, hot, hot, oh, no, no, hot, hot, hot, oh, look out hot pursuit
