Big city lightsGot me flirting with fireTonight I'ma let my hair downHave a few rounds and just let go
[Chorus]Like roulette, o-oWanna close my eyes and roll with youLike roulette, o-oWanna lose control and forget with youLike rouletteLet’s roll it

So you want some moreWell I'm open 24Wanna keep you satisfiedCustomer's always rightHope you've got some roomFor the world's best cherry pieGonna hit that sweet tooth, boy
And now I'm taking it backElectric as f**k (come on)You can't quiet this thunder, noYeah, I'm taking it backAnd all the way upEven in the dark, I glow
[Chorus]You can clip my wings, can't wield my flowersStrong as time but I make up the hours'Cause I'm a goddess and you know itSome respect, you better show itI'm done waiting, siphoning my powerPower
We're all just looking for connectionYeah, we all want to be seenI'm looking for someone who speaks my languageSomeone to ride this ride with meCan I get a witness, witness?Will you be my witness, witness?I'm just looking for a witness in all of thisLooking for a witness to get me through this
