state of emergency lyrics – nick jonas & the administration

“state of emergency”

she’s seductive, she does it well
she’ll charge you by the hour
for a straight trip down to h*ll
she’ll correct you, you think you know
she’s gonna let me go, she’s gonna let me go

i’m not a lover, but i’m still concerned
that when you touch the fire
that your heart could still get burned
she’ll want you to let her know
she’s gonna let you go, she’s gonna let you go

[chorus:]
see all those familiar faces
crowded in my mind
i know that now is not the time
run around with someone else
satisfy yourself but don’t fool me
don’t you let it be a state of emergency

pledge allegiance to the cause
she’ll tell you that she’s leaving
if you don’t put your life on pause
she’ll surprise you, you think you know
she’s gonna let you go, she’s gonna let you go

[chorus]

i know it’s hard when life’s unfair
that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t care
show me the way to reach your heart
where do i start?

see all those familiar faces
crowded in my mind
i know that now is not the time
run around with someone else
satisfy yourself but don’t fool me
don’t you let it be
no, no
don’t you let it be a state of emergency
yeah! oh
