last chance on the stairway
i don't remember quite how i met you, 
wasn't long ago 
just get a picture of sun 
in your eyes, the waves in your hair 
maybe it's something said in a movie 
or you could've said last night 
just took me out on a limb 
and i don't really know what i'm doing here 

and sometimes i'm caught in a landslide 
my beat's so in time, can you look at me 
i'm out of reach, i'll talk if it feels right 
i've had my last chance on the stairway 

funny, it's just like a scene out of voltaire 
twisting out of sight 
cuz when all the curtains are pulled back 
we'll turn and see the circles we traced 
ain't no game...            when you're playing with fire 
it doesn't seem right that we fight 
so the party runs on all night 

and sometimes i'm caught in a landslide 
my beats so in time, can you look at me 
i'm out of reach, i'll talk if it feels right 
so nervous to say, tell me, can't you see 
if you want, i fall out forever 
i can't say no more...                    bebe dance with me 
and please don't say leave it till later 
i've had my last chance on the stairway 

wonder why 
wonder why... 
                                    what makes me rise so high 
maybe it's something they put in your perfume 
or the look in your eyes 
          it could be the atmosphere sinking 
          i don't even know what you're thinking 
          don't even know what you're drinking 
          but it keeps this heaven alive 

and sometimes i'm caught in a landslide 
my beats so in time, can you look at me 
i'm out of reach, i'll talk if it feels right 
so nervous to say, tell me, can't you see 
if you want, i fall out forever 
i can't say no more...                    bebe dance with me 
and please don't say leave it till later 
i've had my last chance on the stairway
