Release: 2015

Opening Lyrics:

I live my day as if it was the last
Live my day as if there was no past
Doin’ it all night, all summer
Doin’ it the way I wanna
Yeah, I’ma dance my heart out ’til the dawn
But I won’t be done when morning comes
Doin’ it all night, all summer
Gonna spend it like no other
It was a crush
But I couldn’t, couldn’t get enough
It was a rush
But I gave it up
It was a crush
Now I might have went and said too much
But that’s all it was
So I gave it up
