Take Your Time - Sam Hunt




The Experience: I don't wanna steal your freedom. I don't wanna change your mind. I don't have to take your heart... Sam Hunt sings about a boy-girl relationship driven by friendship instead of sex...



Music video: Sam Hunt watches her from the shadows as he sings Take Your Time. He watches, and he hopes for her happiness. He watches, and he hurts with her as her marriage goes bad and her husband gets abusive. And he steps up to help her keep her freedom. He doesn't want her. He just cares about her. And that's much truer love.

The Meaning of Take Your Time: In Sam Hunt's own words, "Take your time is a song from the perspective of a guy who is approaching a girl. And as the song goes on you can tell he's confident in his interaction, but he's also vulnerable." Solid love always starts as friendship, with genuine interest but no demands. And friendship always means vulnerability, opening yourself to rejection with no intention of retaliating if you don't get let in. That candor comes across in the simple lyrics and Sam Hunt's own unique style of simple spoken statements mixed in with heartfelt song.

Ask yourself: How do your relationships start?

LYRICS:

I don't know if you were looking at me or not
You probably smile like that all the time
And I don't mean to bother you but
I couldn't just walk by
And not say hi

And I know your name
'Cause everybody in here knows your name
And you're not looking for anything right now
So I don't wanna come on strong
But don't get me wrong
Your eyes are so intimidating
My heart is pounding but
It's just a conversation
No girl I'm not gonna waste it
You don't know me
I don't know you but I want to

I don't wanna steal your freedom
I don't wanna change your mind
I don't have to make you love me
I just want to take your time

I don't wanna wreck your Friday
I ain't gonna waste my lines
I don't have to take your heart
I just wanna take your time

And I know it starts with hello
And the next thing you know you're trying to be nice
And some guys getting too close
Trying to pick you up
Trying to get you drunk

And I'm sure one of your friends is about to come over here
'Cause she's supposed to save you from random guys
That talk too much and wanna stay too long
It's the same old song and dance but I think you know it well

You could've rolled your eyes
Told me to go to hell
Could've walked away
But you're still here
And I'm still here
Come on let's see where it goes

I don't wanna steal your freedom
I don't wanna change your mind
I don't have to make you love me
I just wanna take your time

I don't have to meet your mother
We don't have to cross that line
I don't wanna steal your covers
I just wanna take your time

I don't wanna go home with you

I just wanna be alone with you

I don't wanna steal your freedom
I don't wanna change your mind
I don't have to make you love me
I just wanna take your time

I don't wanna blow your phone up
I just wanna blow your mind
I don't have to take your heart
I just wanna take your time

No, I ain't gotta call you baby
And I ain't gotta call you mine
I don't have to take your heart
I just wanna take your time
