GABRIELLA CILMI | Don't Want To Go To Bed Now

LYRICS:

I know you'll think it's right
If you see inside my mind
It's summer everyday
And it's music through the night
I know you'd think it's fine
If you free your state of mind
Some might say it's strange
But the bullet's worth a bite

Oooh waiting, waiting baby
Oooh waiting, waiting baby

And I
I don't wanna go to bed now
I wanna be indiscreet
I don't wanna go to bed now
Bed now, not now, no
And I
I don't wanna have to beg now
It's sellin' my soul too cheap
I don't wanna go to bed now
Bed now, not now, no

I feel it in my feet
And I feel it in my bones
My heels dug in so deep
Need a truck to drag me home
I know you feel it too
Through the faces in the crowd
It's only me and you
Some good stuff going down

Oooh waiting, waiting baby
Oooh waiting, waiting baby

You look good, look good
You're good looking yeah

And I
I don't wanna go to bed now
I wanna be indiscreet
I don't wanna go to bed now
Bed now, not now, no
And I
I don't wanna have to beg now
It's sellin' my soul too cheap
I don't wanna go to bed now
Bed now, not now, no

You look good, look good
You're good looking yeah

REVIEWS:
x Cilmi's a 16-year-old Australian girl who's among the hordes of singers now getting tagged "the new Amy Winehouse." Please ignore that. She had the good fortune to get her debut album produced by Xenomania, the genius team behind Girls Aloud and countless hits. Two memorable things about "Don't Want to Go to Bed Now": the galloping acoustic-guitar riff that propels the song into the pop stratosphere (that's one of the best things about Xenomania arrangements: these guys just don't believe in understatement) and the way Cilmi's shouted "Tonight!" makes me think of Blondie's "Call Me." Elisabeth Vincentelli

x Gabriella leans far more to the contemporary pop side of songwriting, with songs like 'Donít Go To Bed Now' taking on an almost ABBA-style vocal melody (...) Dom Alessio

x It's a great slice of attitude-filled pop-rock with electro-influenced production and a great beat. Poster Girl

x In spite of being a fan of 'Led Zeppelin', she knows one end of a pop tune from another. (...) 'Don't Wanna Go To Bed' is the Blondie-flavoured pudding providing proof of that particular theory. Popjustice
