In the song "One More Night" by Maroon 5, are the lyrics, "we stopped keeping score" or "we stop keeping score" or "we start keeping score" ?

Every lyric website says something different.

When you listen to Maroon 5 sing the song "One More Night" and listen carefully, the answer is  "we stopped keeping score".  If you think about what they are saying just before that, about going hard at each other, throwing things and slamming doors, it makes sense that the song says the two lovers get so dysfunctional that "we stopped keeping score."  If you keep yelling and throwing things at each other while you are supposed to be lovers, there is no longer any point to keeping score because you have created destruction so many times already.
