God Wants Us to Wait

Album: Love At The Bottom Of The Sea (2012)
  • I think I know what you would like us to do
    When we have children let's have 72
    Until then we must be resigned to our fate
    I love you, baby, but God wants us to wait

    I guess it's true I should have told you before
    And not have waited 'til we're nude on the floor
    Though it would be the perfect end to our date
    I love you, baby, but God wants us to wait

    Now you might like to kiss the dew on my hem
    But one male and female created He them
    Our Lord intended us forever to mate
    I love you, baby, but God wants us to wait

    Despite my beauty and the scent of jasmine
    Could you be happy in the knowledge of sin?
    Although it may not be a crime in our state
    I love you, baby, but God wants us to wait

    How much more wonderful to anticipate
    I love you, baby, but God wants us to waitWriter/s: STEPHIN MERRITT
