You make me want to rush in
But I’m gonna take my sweet time
Baby I’ve got all the time in the world
I’m gonna make you mine

Never been what you’d call patient
Pacing was always just pacing the floor
But this time I’ll take one sweet day at a time
Tomorrow I know that there’s gonna be more baby

It’s too soon for me to say but
I can see the future, love
In my coffee cup
In the morning light
When we’re waking up

I already know you’re where I’m
Heading at lightning speed
Cause you’re what I need
Try to take my time
Cause the time’s so sweet

Pause to consider this moment
Coaster’s just cresting the top of the track
Take a good look around at the breathtaking view
Cause once we start flying there’s no looking back baby

You make me want to rush in
But baby I’ve got all the time in the world
I’m gonna take my sweet time
But you know I’m already your girl
