Critical Reception

Digital Spy writer Lewis Corner stated: "Now that the break-up has well and truly sunk in, the girls are trying to put it behind them by getting back out there and enjoying their lives again. The one request? No more sad songs, obviously. "I'm still trying to put this behind me / I still want to know who's taking you home," Perrie admits on the verse, before it bursts into a spirited electronic-tinged chorus that you can really get swept up in with its addictive squiggles. It's a beautifully defiant twist on a subtle club banger, and Perrie's big vocal run at the end is a real moment." [1]

The song first peaked at #39 on the UK Singles chart before reaching a new peak at #15 after the release of the song's music video, as well as #62 then #25 on the Irish singles chart, #9 on the New Zealand Heatseekers chart and #17 then #4 on the Scottish Singles chart.

Lyrics

Jesy (Machine Gun Kelly):
Hey (Ey, with your eyes wide shut)

Jesy and Jade (Machine Gun Kelly):
Hey (No mo', no mo')

Perrie:
I keep trying, nothing's working
I still wanna know, if you're alone
I keep trying to put this behind me
I still wanna know, who's taking you home

Leigh-Anne:
For tonight I'm gonna get my mind off it
Don't care that someone's got his hands all over my body
Stay out all night
Go where the music's loud, so I don't have to think about it
I'm beggin' please don't play

Leigh-Anne and Jade (Jesy and Perrie):

Dancing with danger, talking to strangers
Don't care where I go, (Hey hey, hey yeah)
Just can't be alone (Hey hey, hey yeah)

(No, oh)

Machine Gun Kelly (Jesy):
Taste of the good life, can you keep pace?
Can you ride shotgun in the fast lane
With your eyes wide shut?
Tell me do you have faith in me?

Stay the whole night til you feel the sun rays
Can you forget everything your man's saying?
And let all of our pain be the champagne (Aah)

Let me take the wheel from here
And penthouse suite and chill from here
Show you the real is here (Aah)
Stare at the skies with you
Only got eyes for you
Even when the lights off I'm visualizing you (Aah)

I see your wonderwall, I get close to you
I watch you let it fall and get emotional (Aah)
Erase the past we are free at last
