if you want to lyrics – alannah myles

every man i meet is in a hurry
to find a new romance
always wanna leave the party early
maybe i’d like to dance

slowly, if you really wanna know me
take it easy when you hold me
i might let go

play it cool, straight and true
look me in the eye
if you want to
(want to)
talk to me

take your time, don’t be shy
tell me your name
if you want to
(want to)
walk with me

i’m the kind who waits for somethin’ special
instead of fallin’ too fast
i believe the night is somethin’ precious
that’s why i want it to last

so slowly, if you really wanna know me
take it easy when you hold me
don’t let me go

play it cool, straight and true
look me in the eye
if you want to
(want to)
talk to me

take your time, don’t be shy
tell me your name
if you want to
(want to)
walk with me

what are we gonna do?
you look like you’re somethin’ new
and i like the way you move
don’t let me go

hah
play it cool, straight and true
look me in the eye
if you want to
(want to)
talk to me

take your time, don’t be shy
tell me your name
if you want to
(want to)
walk with me

little by little
i let you know
if i want you
(want to)
to get close to me

hey
na na na na
na na na na
na na
(want to)
na na na na
na na na na
na na
(want to)
(ohh, i need you)
na na na na
na na na na
na na
(want to)
na na na na
na na na na
na na
(want to)
(i really want to)
na na na na
na na na na
na na
(want to)
na na na na
na na na na
na na
(want to)
na na na na
na na na na
na na
(want to)
na na na na
na na na na
na na
(want to)
