How was everyone’s Halloween (Samhain)? I hope it had went well.

Have you ever had someone who you were dating and they pressured and/or rushed you into having you-know-what with them? I’m sure some of you had. Well, the reason for today’s song, Let’s Wait Awhile is because there are a lot of people, women, men, and teenagers going through or had gone through this.

It’s mostly happening to women and young women, no matter of the age, race, or culture. Even though time may have seemed to change, it hadn’t. Women are still being pressured by impatient men and boys.

This post is about what could be happening in relationships, or for some who are just getting into one. I feel like that it doesn’t matter how good of person you are, if you aren’t ready, then that person will do two things: wait a while along with you or leave you. Most aren’t willing to wait for any given time because they want it when they want it. And some might not leave but might cheat. And some men who are gems are gentlemen who love that woman and will wait because in their heart that woman is worth the wait.

This song had captured me a short time before my school was giving us teaching sex-ed in our school. The word abstinence stuck out so strong. And though they were still teaching us that in junior high, I had refrained from sex. It wasn’t necessary to be in a rush to go there with a guy, especially since what had happened in my earlier years. The other teenagers were hooking up and sex became a favorite past-time for them. I hated that once I hit high school, I wanted to fit in and be like the others. I wished I would had made what guy I had met to wait until I was ready.

Though, some women may feel like if they don’t give themselves to a man he will go to another woman who will, I believe she should take some time to for her because a real man will see her worth and will treat her in a way a woman should be treated.

LYRICS:

[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2]
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

[Chorus]
Let’s wait awhile
Before it’s too late
Let’s wait awhile
Before we go too far

[Verse 3]
Remember that special night?
When all of the stars were shining bright
We made our first endeavor
To stay together

[Verse 4]
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

[Chorus]
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

[Bridge]
I didn’t really know not to let all my feelings show
To save some for later so our love will be greater

[Verse 5]
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

[Chorus]
Let’s wait awhile
Before it’s too late
You know you can’t rush love
Love
Let’s wait awhile (Ooh, ooh)
Before it’s too late
Let’s wait awhile (Wait awhile)
Our love will be great
Let’s wait awhile
Before we go too far (Far, far, oh)
Let’s wait awhile (Let’s just take our time)
Before it’s too late
Let’s wait awhile (Love’s so good)
Sure our love will be there
Let’s wait awhile (Slow it down)
Before we go too far

[Spoken Outro]
I promise
I’ll be worth the wait
