After Hours Song Lyrics

After Hours by Kehlani


We don't gotta take it slow
I'ma hit the gas if you ready to go
I wanna feel the sweat breathin' through your clothes
The way you touch my neck got me ready to fold

[Refrain]
I wanna make magic (Magic)
I want you to feel me (Feel me)
I want you to grab it (Grab it)
I want you to steal me (Steal me)
If you want it, you can have it (Have it)
I want you to free me (Free me)
I'm not tryin' to lock you down

[Pre-Chorus]
You came in on your own (Own), own (Own), own (Own)
Caught up in your zone (Zone), zone (Zone), zone (Zone, zone)
In a room full of strangers, different faces (Yeah)
It feels like we're alone ('Lone), alone ('Lone), alone

[Chorus]
Why don't you stay?
Stay here after hours
I know you don't wanna leave (Don't wanna leave)
Stay here after hours
After hours, we can—
[Verse 2]
We ain't gotta check the time
Even when it ends, it's still you and I
We ain't even know they turned on the lights
We missed the last call, ridin' on a high (Oh, oh, oh, oh)

[Refrain]
It's more than a moment (Moment)
This can't be a memory (Memory)
The party is over (Over)
You wanna come with me? (With me)
My home never closes (Closes)
Just want you to feel free (Feel free)
I'm not tryin' to lock you down

[Pre-Chorus]
You came in on your own (Own), own (Own), own (Own)
Caught up in your zone (Zone), zone (Zone), zone (Zone, zone)
In a room full of strangers, different faces (Yeah)
It feels like we're alone ('Lone), alone ('Lone), alone

[Chorus]
Why don't you stay? (Why don't you stay?)
Stay here after hours (After hours)
I know you don't wanna leave (Don't wanna leave)
Stay here after hours (After hours)
After hours, we can—
[Bridge]
Oh, woah-woah (Ooh)
Oh, woah-woah (Tell your friends to go)
Oh, woah-woah (You can stay for a little while)
Oh, woah-woah
Oh, woah-woah (Mmm, mmm)
Oh, woah-woah (If you wanna stay)
Oh, woah-woah (You can stay for a little while)
Oh, woah-woah

[Chorus]
Why don't you stay? (Why don't you stay?)
Stay here after hours (Girl, why don't you stay here?)
I know you don't wanna leave (You don't wanna leave, oh)
Stay here after hours (After hours)
After hours, we can—

[Outro]
Oh, woah-woah
Oh, woah-woah (Tell your friends to go)
Oh, woah-woah (You can stay for a little while)
Oh, woah-woah (Ah)
Oh, woah-woah
Oh, woah-woah (You ain't gotta go)
Oh, woah-woah (You can stay for a little while)
Oh, woah-woah
