I remember the day when 
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 
You told me your name 
You told me about 
Your career 
I told you about my hopes  
My dreams  my fears 
We had some laughs 
One month has past 
Tonight can't you stay 

Now that 
The time is feeling just right 
Candles burnin' turnin' out 
The lights 
Anticipate the feelin' of 
Your skin 
Shall we begin 
Hit repeat and let the 
Music play 
Until the night turns 
Into day 
Open-up your heart and let 
Me in 
Shall we begin 

Over time 
We've gotten closer 
Than close 
You're the one 
I want to be with the most 
Neither one of us was in 
A rush 
Agreeing to wait 
Now I feel my patience 
Running thin 
Anticipating when you tell 
Me when 
The time is now 
Tell me you'll stay 


We're gonna take our time 
Don't hesitate to 
Come inside 
Relax your mind 
Everything is alright 
The candlelight and you 
Just pour the wine 
We're gonna take it 
Nice and slow 
Auto pilot 
Steady as we go 
Not in a hurry, no 
Till I hear you say 
That you're glad 
You stayed
