Why Don't We Go There Lyrics

I know you want, know you want take it slow
But think about all the places we could go
If you give in tonight
Let me set you free
We'll touch the other side
Just give me the keys

'Cause we got all night
We're going nowhere
Why don't you...

    This song, from what I know, is about.. Well, sexual intercourse. As from the beginning, when it starts of by, "I know you want, know you want take it slow" I infer that the speed of the relationship, but I was told that it is actually of the speed of each thrusts. The following phrase says, "But think about all the places we could go. If you give in tonight, Let me set you free, we'll touch the other side, Just give me the key" I can tell that here, he is talk about going to a world of.. Pleasure. As in "Another World." Then there is the chorus:

    'Cause we got all night
    We're going nowhere
    Why don't you stay?
    Why don't we go there?
    Let's take a ride
    Out in the cold air
    I know the way
    Why don't you go there with me?

    This actually speaks for itself, no need to interpret it. Next we have, "Say the word, say the word but don't say 'no' Sky dive, you and I with just these clothes" Literally saying, dont resist. Continuing, "Your secret's safe with me. There's no right time or place. Cause anyone could see, Do it anyway." interpretation; we'll do it anywhere, anyway. Afterwards, the chorus again.

    Now, here we have yet another verse.

    ", I don't want you be the one that got away
    I wanna get addicted to you yeah
    You're rushing through my mind
    I wanna feel the high
    I wanna be addicted
    Don't say, no-o-o-o
    Just let go-o-o-o-o"

    Here, it is expressed that he doesn't just want her to go. He wants to 'feel' the 'high' or in other words, his climax. Then, he wants to be addicted to 'you' that goes directly, or could be speaking of sex in general. Well.. That's my interpretation, anyone else can think of another, I dont mind. But this is how I see it. Thanks. Xx

    Basically the meaning of this song is about having sexual intercourse while travelling together

    I think it's about seggsy time. It's kinda clear in the line "we've got all night, we're going nowhere. Why don't you stay, why don't we go there. Let's take a ride.." blah blah
    This song is such a bop even after 7 years I love it.
    Louis Tomlinson is a lyric genius wbk.

    As sad as it is it's pretty much about ***

    When I first heard the song, I loved it. I didn't thought of sex actually. I thought of a girl whose timid about trying something while a boy wants her too.

    People can have different meanings from there, like sex, speed of a relationship or just simply an adventure.

    I don't know. I think there's more to this song than what people interpret it to be.
