Let's Wait Awhile Lyrics

by Janet Jackson

There's something I want to tell you
There's something I think that you should know
It's not that I shouldn't really love you
Let's take it slow

When we get to know each other
And we're both feeling much stronger
Then let's try to talk it over
Let's wait awhile longer

Let's wait awhile before it's too late
Let's 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

We made our very first promise
To love, to share and be real honest
But on that very first night
It wasn't quite right

Let's wait awhile before it's too late
Let's wait awhile, our love will be great
Let's 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

Let's wait awhile, awhile before it's too late
You know you can't rush love, love

Let's wait awhile before it's too late
Let's wait awhile, our love will be great
Let's wait awhile before we go too far

Let's wait awhile before it's too late
Let's wait awhile, our love will be great
Let's wait awhile before we go too far

I promise, I'll be worth the wait
