Lyrics

[Zayn]
Just stop lookin' for love
Girl, you know you still got time
Girl, you know you still got time
Girl, you know you still got
Just stop lookin' for love
You still got time
Girl, you know you still got time
Girl, you know you still got time

This could be something if you let it be something
Don't scare me away
Turning something's into nothing, babe
You're already used to the games, babe
You play your role and I play the same

Come give it to me, yea aw yea
Come give it to me, play by play
I could tell you've been bored all day
Cause you're young and you still got time
Don't waste your time
We been wasting away, aw yeah
And no matter what you say, aw yeah
That smile gon' take you places
And I know you wanna see some faces

Just stop lookin' for love
Girl, you know you still got time
Girl, you know you still got time
Girl, you know you still got
Just stop lookin' for love
You still got time
Girl, you know you still got time
Girl, you know you still got time

[PartyNextDoor]
I know I'm working my magic
And I know you diggin' my fabric
I'm boyfriend material
You said it yourself you digging me
And I'd be lying if I said it wasn't equally (equally, babe)
A feeling that we both feel (both feel)
Something that is so real (so real)
But I got to let you know slowly
Well, it may be truthfully
But you just gotta stop looking for it

Come give it to me, yea, aw, yea
Come give it to me, play by play
I could tell you've been bored all day
Cause you're young and you still got time
Don't waste your time
We been wasting away, aw yeah
And no matter what you say, aw yeah
That smile gon' take you places
And I know you wanna see some places

[Zayn & PartyNextDoor]
Just stop lookin' for love
Girl, you know you still got time
Girl, you know you still got time
Girl, you know you still got
Just stop lookin' for love
You still got time
Girl, you know, you still got time
Girl, you know you still got time

This could be something, yeah
This could be
This could be something
If you let it be something
It could be something, yeah
This could be
This could be something, yeah
If you let it be something
Right now I wanna see ya

[Zayn]
Come give it to me, yea aw yea
Come give it to me, play by play
I could tell you've been bored all day
Cause you're young and you still got time
Don't waste your time

We been wasting away, aw yeah
And no matter what you say, aw yeah
That smile gon' take you places

Music Video

Background

The video was filmed in Zayn's four million pound North London mansion and reportedly the party kept neighbours up until 4am. The director of the video, Calmatic, has revealed that the rocking house party was no set up - it was just the 'wildest house party'.

Calmatic explained: "I was asleep in LA when I got a call from Zayn's management at 7 am. They told me to hop on the next flight to London. It was my first time in London so I didn't know what to expect. When I got there we met at his crib and he said he wanted to throw the wildest house party imaginable. So we invited everyone we knew and let the cameras roll. The rest is history." 

The party certainly does look wild as young bright things pour tequila down their throats straight from the bottle and one boy even skateboards through the house. There are plenty of sexually charged moments as topless girls turn their back to the camera and bodies writhe on the floor, which made the video being labeled as NSFW.

Reception

Writing for Billboard, Taylor Weather said: "[Malik's] latest song is a hopeful (and seriously catchy) anthem for the girls who aren't quite as lucky as Hadid." He also noted its "groovy electronic, guitar-plucked beat"[6] Quinn Moreland, assistant editor at Pitchfork compared "Still Got Time" to Drake's "Passionfruit" due to its 'tropical-house inspired production'. She also commented that Zayn 'even sounds like he's having a good time.'[7]

Jordan Sargent from SPIN also praised the singer's vocals, commenting that while "purring over a typically great, abstract guitar loop, Zayn sounded relaxed and at ease trying to convince a girl that she's too young to be worried about love".[8] 

Many have compared the song with The Rugrats theme song[9] as well as with Drake's works.[10]
