Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'll be your sun and moon tonight
I can be your whatever you like, ooh
I was alone but I'm ready to feel
I wanna show you my feelings are real, yeah
All this time I've been living it up
And every night I'd be falling in love, ooh
But I'm finally seeing the light
Falling in love with you every night, yeah

But if I ever let you down
If I ever let you down
Forgive me, forgive me, now
Would it kill you to forgive me now?
But if I ever let you down
If I ever let you down
Forgive me, forgive me, now
Would it kill you to forgive me?
This is a new love

What the fuck, I got nothing to lose

You're the only drug I wanna do yeah
