Don't Stop is a song by 5 Seconds of Summer from their fourth EP Don't Stop (EP).It is the band's second single off their self-titled debut album.

Critical ReceptionEdit

Amy Davidson of Digital Spy gave the song 4/5 stars, stating "Blink-182 may have released their first song long before any of the Aussie four-piece were even born, but that hasn't deterred 5SOS from being the band's loyal understudies. 'Don't Stop' sees them jolting new life into an otherwise flagging pop-punk genre, charging ahead as leaders of the revival." [1]

LyricsEdit

Luke:
You're like perfection, some kind of holiday
You got me thinking that we could run away
You want I'll take you there
You tell me when and where
Oh oh oh oh

But then I asked for your number
Said you don't have a phone
It's getting late now
I gotta let you know

That everybody wants to take you home tonight
But I'm gonna find a way to make you mine

Luke, Michael and Calum:
Don't stop doin' what you're doin'
Every time you move to the beat
It gets harder for me
And you know it, know it, know it
Don't stop 'cause you know that I like it
Every time you walk in the room
You got all eyes on you
And you know it, know it, know it

Calum:
You're coming close now, swear I can taste it
You got me tongue tied, I can't escape it
I'm loving what you got
But then you push me off
Oh oh oh oh

And everybody wants to take you home tonight
But I'm gonna find a way to make you mine

Luke, Michael and Calum:
Don't stop doin' what you're doin'
Every time you move to the beat
It gets harder for me
And you know it, know it, know it
Don't stop 'cause you know that I like it
Every time you walk in the room
You got all eyes on you
And you know it, know it, know it

Michael:
Every day it's the same love and games that you play
Back and forth, round and round, kinda like it this way

Luke:
Don't stop doin' what you're doin'
'Cause every time you move to the beat
It gets harder for me
And you know it, know it, know it

Luke, Michael and Calum:
Don't stop 'cause you know that I like it
Every time you walk in the room
You got all eyes on you
And you know it, know it, know it, know it

Ashton:
Don't stop, stop what you're doing
'Cause you know that you know that I like it

Luke, Michael and Calum:
Don't stop doin' what you're doin'
Every time you move to the beat
It gets harder for me
And you know it, know it, know it
Don't stop, 'cause you know that I like it

(Michael: You know that I like it)
Every time you walk in the room
You got all eyes on you
And you know it, know it, know it
