Why Don't We Go There - One Direction


The Experience: Although the girl who wants to take it slow, One Direction tries to convince her to give in tonightWhy don't you go there with me?

Lyric Video


The Meaning of Why Don't We Go There is a pick-up scene. (Again? Yes, it's a pretty common on the Midnight Memories album.) The boy makes a lot of promises - I wanna be addicted to you, I know the way, I don't want you to be the one that got away - and the girl is (initially?) hesitant, so he pushes on her feelings - you want to take it slow, just say the word, do it anyway. Girls sometimes expect to get his intimacy from giving him sex. When it's her turn to ask him for that soul-to-soul intimacy, she'll probably be disappointed. A fast guy's idea of intimacy is body-to-body, but not much more.

Ask Yourself: Do I have a good answer for 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 key

'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?

Say the word, say the word
But don't say "no"
Sky dive, you and I with just these clothes
Your secret's safe with me
There's no right time or place
Cause anyone could see
Do it anyway

'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?

Hey, 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

'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? With me?
Why don't you go there with me?
