PrimeTime
Tick-tock I'm watching the clock
I can't wait til we get to rock
I wanna scream and dream and throw a love parade
Is that okay?

Tonight it's me and you alone
Won't make a call won't even write a song
See I been waitin' and waitin' for the time to say
Listen baby

When you're down and it's hard
And you feel like you've given your all
Baby our love will always keep it real and true

'Cause baby it's a prime time for our love
Ain't nobody peaking but the stars above
It's a prime time for our love
And heaven is betting on us

Bang bang I'm calling your name
You're like a fire the world can't tame
I wanna riot til the stars come out and play
Is that okay?

Tonight it's me and you alone
Won't take a call won't even write a song
This should be your personal holiday
Listen babe

When your down and it's hard
And you feel like you've given your all
Baby my love is always right here for you
Yeah

'Cause baby it's a prime time for our love
Ain't nobody peaking but the stars above
It's a prime time for our love
And heaven is betting on us

It's a prime time for our love
Ain't nobody peaking but the stars above
It's a prime time for our love
And heaven is betting on us

Primetime (I know sometimes I'm mysterious)
Love (And you're mysterious too)
For me (But tonight)
And you (I don't want to be mysterious with you)

'Cause baby it's a prime time for our love
Ain't nobody peaking but the stars above
It's a prime time for our love
And heaven is betting on us
