Alannah Myles – If You Want To lyrics

Every man I meet is in a hurry to find a new romance
Always wanna leave the party early, maybe I'd like to dance
Slowly, if you really wanna know me, take it easy when you hold me
I might let go
Play it cool, straight and true, look me in the eye
If you want to (want to) talk to me
Take your time, don't be shy, tell me your name
If you want to (want to) walk with me
I'm the kind who waits for something special, instead of falling too fast
I believe the night is something precious, that's why I want it to last
So slowly, if you really wanna know me, take it easy when you hold me
Don't let me go
What are we gonna do, you look like you're something new
And I like the way you move
Don't let me go!
Little by little I let you know
If I want you (want to) to get close to me
(Na na na na, na na na na, na na - want to)
(Na na na na, na na na na, na na - want to) Only if you want to
(repeats out
