Brian McKnight – Shall We Begin lyrics

I remember the day that we first met
We both got caught in the rain and we were soaking wet
I looked in your eyes you gave me a smile
And told me your name
You told me about your career
I told you about my hopes, my dreams, my fears
We had some laughs, a month has past
Tonight can't you stay, can you stay?

1 - now when the time is feeling just right
Candles burning, turning out the lights
Anticipate the feeling of your skin
Shall we begin?
Just forget with laughing, end the pain
Until the night turns into day
Open up your heart and let me in
Shall we begin?

All the time you got me closer than close
You're the one I wanna be with the most
Neither one of us was in a rush
Agreeing to wait, to wait
But now I feel my patience running thin
Anticipating when you tell me the time is now
Tell me you'll stay, hey

Repeat 1

We're gonna take our time
Don't hesitate to come inside
So relax you're mind, everything is alright
Candlelight and me, just for a while
We're gonna take it nice and slow
Hold our bodies steadyas we not in hurry
Until I get you to say that you're so glad you stayed

Repeat 1 till end
