Lyrics

I Got You

Written By: Chiara Casiraghi

Verse 1:
Use to be one of the many numbers on your phone
But something’s changed and now
You can leave me alone
Millions of mistakes could be made tonight
But in your eyes I’m doing everything right

Give me less and less discretion
In becoming your latest obsession

Hook:
I’ve got you right right. Where I want, want. You, you
I’ve got you right right. Where I want, want. You, you
After everything you put me through
I’ve got you right right. Where I want, want. You, you you

I’ve got you right right. Where I want, want. You, you
I’ve got you right right. Where I want, want. You, you
I’ve got you-
I’ve got you right right. Where I want, want. You, you you

Verse2:
When I was seventeen I did care about your love
But now Im older and thinking I can live without
Your smile, you touch, your shake
Now that I want a break
I can guarantee that since im not looking your looking at me

Hook:
I’ve got you right right. Where I want, want. You, you
I’ve got you right right. Where I want, want. You, you
---------through
I’ve got you right right. Where I want, want. You, you you

I’ve got you right right. Where I want, want. You, you
I’ve got you right right. Where I want, want. You, you
---------through
Ive got you right right. Where I want, want. You, you you

Breakdown: Ive got you right right etc...

Wild

Written By: Chiara Casiraghi

Verse 1:
Wish you did a lot of things different
But we have different views on how the world should work
I'd love to step inside you for a moment
and understand the things you do and why it hurts

Where did you go now that I need you the most

Hook
You find me
When im lost
I hope I can hold on

Come close now
And squeeze tight- dont lose sight
be the one who just might
Let me run wild

Verse 2:
Im not gonna tell you to be patient
If your not satisfied with how far we’ve come
But no matter how wrong we may be
You’re the only person i still want around.

Where did you go now that I need you the most

Hook
You find me
When im lost
I hope I can hold on

Come close now
And squeeze tight- dont lose sight
be the one who just might
Let me run wild

Electric

Written By: Chiara Casi

Verse 1:
I smiled and pretend everything is alright
When you’re packing your bags to leave tonight
How many miles will you be away
How many phone calls are we gonna say

This is nothing I need
But you’re everything I want
And to keep it alive you left a string on my heart

Hook:
My Heart Beats Electric x3
Dont stop my heart from beating
Dont Stop
Dont Stop
Dont Stop
Dont stop my heart from beating

Verse 2:
There’s a power-surge coursing through my veins
And I cant wait to see you over more than airwaves
If this in-between sight is our only choice
I can only make love to the sound of your voice.

This is nothing I need
But you’re everything I want
And to keep it alive you left a string on my heart

Hook:
My Heart Beats Electric x3
Dont stop my heart from beating
Dont Stop
Dont Stop
Dont Stop
Dont stop my heart from beating

Bridge: My heart beats electric x3

Bad Girl

Written By: Chiara Casi

Verse 1:
You got me staying up late at night
You got me wanting to start a fight
You’re taking me home, way past my curfew
And there’s nothing I can do

Thinking you’re safe is wrong I know
still I sneak out to you through my window
Wait for your call, just to see you again
I’ll hold my breath till then

Not in this lifetime maybe the next one
I’ll send you in a different direction

Chorus:
I don’t wanna be a bad girl
But I do bad things when I’m with you
I don’t wanna be a bad girl
But I’d be bad to be good for you.
oooooooaaaa
Bad to be good for you.

Verse 2:
Ohoh You should come with a warning
Cause no stop when you get me going
Don’t wanna be bad, but you make it so easy
Don’t set me free

My friends tell me to stay away
But I don’t listen to them anyway
can’t you tell I have so much to learn
At the point of no return

Not in this lifetime maybe the next one
I’ll send you in a different direction

Bridge:
Im holding on tight, night after night
Hoping one day you’ll change
Dont’ waste my time, I must be out of my mind
To think I’m not to blame
But a guy like you doesn't come with a future plan
And a girl like me needs to cover her heart when she can
Ohhhh when she can.

4 A.M

Written By: Chiara Casiraghi

You can hold me down
From all the things I find around
And you can complain
When you don’t get your way

But
You can hold me down
You can hold me down
You can hold me down
With just one touch

Cause
1 touch is all it take for me to stop my break away
2 steps is where I stop when I hear you call my name
3 seconds out the door is where you’ll be looking
4 me
1, 2 , 3 you love me

Hook:
It’s 4 am
And the beat’s still pumping
hard, hard, hard
As we’re rocking in the
Club, club, club
And dancing on the
Bar’s, Bar’s, Bar’s
If they
Shut, us, down
Ask us if we
Care, care, care
Cause our dancefloor
Is everywhere, where, where.

You can’t stop my break away x6
You can’t hold me down with just one touch

Breakdown:
He said I can make things happen
I can track you to the fast lane
No need to make wishes on planes
Cuz now you’re playing in my game

This is the begining it’s not, not
the end
We’re hitting it crazy
No need to pretend.

Hook:
It’s 4 am
And the beat’s still pumping
hard, hard, hard
As we’re rocking in the
Club, club, club
And dancing on the
Bar’s, Bar’s, Bar’s
If they
Shut, us, down
Ask us if we
Care, care, care
Cause our dancefloor
Is everywhere, where, where.

You can’t stop my break away x6
You can’t hold me down with just one touch

Verse 2:
They’re closing down the club
But they’re letting us in
The night should be over
But we make it begin
Tigers on my feet
As I dance to the beat
The boys run up behind
But we tell them sorry.

Cause
1 touch is all it take for me to stop my break away
2 steps is where I stop when I hear you call my name
3 seconds out the door is where you’ll be looking
4 me
1, 2 , 3 you love me

Hook:
It’s 4 am
And the beat’s still pumping
hard, hard, hard
As we’re rocking in the
Club, club, club
