Love Slow – Ilana Charnelle

From the album A Minute of Your Time (2020).

I always dive deep, dig my heels in 

Say that I want danger, so I want him 

Run fast, like I’m being chased 

Or maybe if I stop I’ll realise my mistake 

I’m always spinning, dancing on a string 

Walking on the tightrope in between 

The thrill of it all and then pain when it ends 

How many heartbreaks before it never mends

I gotta learn to love slow, to make mistakes and let ‘em go

To be less familiar with rising from the ash

I gotta learn to see it through, to treat you how I promised to 

To see eye to eye instead of sleeping back to back 

And if you wait with me while I do

I’ll learn to love slow with you

Bared teeth, learned to fight 

After a thousand times not being treated right 

Claws came out, earned my stripes

So forgive me if I thought you weren’t my type 

I’m always yearning, begging for someone 

To throw me the smallest scrap of their love 

Till you came along, handed over your plate 

Sated me with that soft look on your face 

I gotta learn to love slow, to make mistakes and let ‘em go

To be less familiar with rising from the ash

I gotta learn to see it through, to treat you how I promised to 

To see eye to eye instead of sleeping back to back 

And if you wait with me while I do

I’ll learn to love slow with you

Dive deep, dig my heels in 

I fight the same these days but sometimes I give in

Run fast, but you know to wait 

For me to run back and say I’ve made a mistake 

I gotta learn to love slow, to make mistakes and let ‘em go

To be less familiar with rising from the ash

I gotta learn to see it through, to treat you how I promised to 

To see eye to eye instead of sleeping back to back 

And if you wait with me while I do

Please wait with me while I do

And if you wait with me while I do

I’ll learn to love slow with you
