Irresponsible

Whether it's the ultimate fantasy or single-life reality, it sure gets people's attention...

Here I am again, stopped in for my one drink,

It's the best way I know to put an end to yet another long day,

But something feels different tonight.

I see you watching me from the back of the room

I couldn't help but notice, 'cuz I've been watching you, too

And it occurs to me that this night might not have to be like all the rest

 

I wanna be irresponsible, forget my conscience

Lost in the moment, just for tonight

And when tomorrow dawns, it won't bother me

I'll keep the secret and bask in the memory

 

Do you know what it's like being good all the time?

Superwoman on the job, always walking that straight line

I need a little release!

Well, here you are tonight, and you are looking SO fine

why don't you come on home with me and keep me company?

I'll surely make it worth your time...

 

I wanna be irresponsible, forget my conscience

Lost in the moment, just for tonight

And when tomorrow dawns, it won't bother me

I'll keep the secret and bask in the memory

 

This could be the end of just an ordinary day

I could leave it here right now

Smile politely, say “thank you kindly, gotta call it a night now,

early rising, work-days bite, you know”...

But I've been a little too good, working too hard, for too long

And I need the respite of some not-so-guilty pleasures to savor

 

I wanna be irresponsible, forget my conscience

Lost in the moment, just for tonight

And when tomorrow dawns, it won't bother me

I'll keep the secret and bask in the memory

Of being irresponsible, forget my conscience

Lost in the moment, just for tonight

And when tomorrow dawns, it won't bother me

I'll keep the secret and bask in the memory


 

Irresponsible

Irresponsible

Irresponsible

Even if it takes all night...
