Janet Jackson – Let's Wait Awhile lyrics

There's something I want to tell you

There's something I think that you should know

Its not that I shouldn't really love you

Lets take it slow

When we get to know each other

And were both feeling much stronger

Then lets try to talk it over

Lets wait awhile longer

Lets wait awhile before it's too late

Lets wait awhile before we go too far

Remember that special night

When all of the stars where shining bright

We made our first endeavor

To stay together

Remember our very first promise

To love, to share, and be real honest

But on that very first night

It wasn't quite right

Lets wait awhile before it's too late

Lets wait awhile, our love will be there

Lets wait awhile before we go too far

I didn't really know not to let all my feelings show

To save some for later so our love can be greater

You said you would always love me

Remember I said the same thing too

You don't have to be frightened with my love

Because I'll never give up on you

Lets wait awhile, awhile before it's too late

You know you can't rush love

Lets just take our time

With love so good, we shouldn't rush it

We need to slow it down
