Skylar Stecker - Not Afraid Of Love

It was first seen in 2014 on songwriting registries naming Grande as both a writer and performer. It is unclear whether the song was supposed to be on Grande's first studio album Yours Truly or sophomore studio album My Everything. The song was ultimately sold to American recording artist Skylar Stecker and included on her debut studio album "This Is Me".

Lyrics Edit

  
(Taken from Skylar's version)

Verse 1
I know you want what's best for me
I know you've been waiting patiently
You got my hand over the fire
I know you wanna take me higher

I don't wanna jump until I'm sure
It's not like my heart is insecure
The moment I'm ready I'll just know it
I'm gonna know it

CHORUS
Oh no, baby, not this way
Oh no, but I'm not afraid of love...
A little more time
And I'll take you there
Oh no, baby, not today
But love, come on
If you rage in love
I want it
A little more time
And I'll take you there

Verse 2
You make it hard, boy, to resist
A little more space, I must insist
Too close, you're intoxicating
Makes me wonder why I'm waiting

I'll give up the fight
When I know it's right
Baby, baby, not tonight

Oh oh, a little more time
And I'll take you there

CHORUS
Oh no, baby, not this way
Oh no, but I'm not afraid of love...
A little more time
And I'll take you there
Oh no, baby, not today
But love, come on
If you rage in love
I want it
A little more time
And I'll take you there

Bridge
Only time can tell me
If it's real
Or if we're rushing
How we feel

Is it my imagination? (uh-oh)
Is it a perfect situation?
No

I didn't wanna fall in love
But you made me go and do it
(Why'd you do it?)
And now you gotta prove it

A little more time
And I'll take you there!!!!

CHORUS
Oh no, baby, not this way
Oh no, but I'm not afraid of love...
(Oh no-oh, oh oh)
A little more time and I'll take you there
(And I'll take you there)
Oh no, baby, not today
But love, come on if you rage in love
(Rage in love...)
I want it
A little more time
And I'll take you there
Baby, not this way
Oh no, but I'm not afraid of love
A little more time
And I'll take you there

Outro
Oh no, baby, not today
But love, come on if you rage in love
I want it
A little more time and I'll take you there

And I'm gonna take you there
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
And I'm gonna take you there
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
And I'm gonna take you (there)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
And I'm gonna take you there

A little more time
(Oh-oh-oh-oh)
And I'll take you there
