Sam Hunt Take Your Time 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
Cuz 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 gunna 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 gunna waste my lies
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 your trying to be nice
And some guys getting too close
Tryin to pick you up
Trying to get you drunk

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

You coulda rolled your eyes
Told me to go to hell
Coulda walked away
But your 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

Overview

“Take Your Time” is a mid-tempo ballad delivered by Sam Hunt in a “half-spoken, half-sung” style reflective of the influence of the 90s R&B. The song was co-written by Hunt, Josh Osborne, and Shane McAnally who, incidentally, was also the producer of the record together with Zach Crowell. It was released in November 24, 2014 by MCA Nashville from his debut album Montevallo in the same year in digitally downloadable format. “Take Your Time” is Hunt’s second single to hit the number 1 slot on the Billboard charts in February 21, 2015 – following the success of “Leave the Night On” – and was subsequently certified Gold in March 11, 2015 by RIAA before reaching platinum in April 14, 2015. As of July 2015, about 1,539,000 copies of the song have been sold in the United States alone.

“Take Your Time” is about a young man who wants to get to know a young woman at a bar but doesn’t want to come on too strong. The lines that he directs to the young woman are sincere yet inventive especially since they met at a bar which is not at all romantic, according to Hunt.

The song’s most famous line comes from a phrase which Osborne already had as a working title of the song. According to Osborne, the phrase “take your time” simply means to go slow and when the guy says this to the girl, all he wants to say is “I’m not trying to take your friends away from you, I’m not trying to do this … I just wanna take your time”.

Ringtone to Take Your Time by Sam Hunt is best sourced between 0:15 and 0:45 minute.
