"Getting Late" as written by Natalie Stewart, Vidal Davis and Marsha Ambrosius....
Baby
Ooo baby
Baby,baby
Ooo um baby
Oh baby

We need to um talk about where
We're taking this thing.
How far we're gonna let this go.
We've been here before.
Its getting late.

It's getting late.
Why you gotta be here?
Beside me.
Watching, needing, wanting me.
I'm afraid, (Don't Be)
I'm afraid, (Don't Be)
I'm so scared that you'll hurt me, twice.
Baby, oh baby baby baby

Listen, I've already been thinking about you on my mind.
Far too often for you,
To be here at this time
You see, one hands on nine and the other's on my thigh.
Look,I already played with the idea of you
Being here in the morning
And the position for the crack of dawn
And the conversation before the yawning
But aah, it's getting late.

It's getting late.
Why you gotta be here?
Beside me.
Watching, needing, wanting me.
But I'm afraid, (you say) don't be.
But I'm afraid, (you say) don't be.
I'm so scared that you'll hurt me twice.
Oh Baby baby baby

How's about I let you touch the space.
That you left behind,
The day that you stop smiling
The day that the tears started falling
But now were talking, touching
Almost making sensual again
We can taste the familiar,
'Cause, the family hour supports it.
Of this moment,but was led by the movements cause ah
It's getting late.

It's getting late.
Why you gotta be here?
Beside me.
Watching, needing, wanting me.
But I'm afraid, (you say) don't be.
But I'm afraid, (you say) don't be.
I'm so scared that you'll hurt me twice.
Oh baby baby baby
Oh baby twice baby baby.

I see the memories we replayed
Same space face bodies
I know there's a method to your manliness
But ah I'm a afraid

It's getting late.
Why you gotta be here?
Beside me.
Watching, needing, wanting me.
But I'm afraid, you say don't be.
But I'm afraid, and you say don't be.
I'm afraid that you'll gonna hurt me baby, baby twice baby

I see the memories replayed, same space, same place
Same bodies baby I know this method to your manliness
But I'm afraid, babe
I see the memories replayed, same space, same place
Same bodies baby I know this method to your manliness
But I'm afraid, baby

    General CommentIt's about various situations where things are getting hotter than they should be either cuz a) ure "just friends" and tryin to keep it there or b) u can't move into somethin cuz ure afraid of being burned again... it's getting late could mean a friend needs to go cuz its like 11pm and the question lingers "should i stay or should i go." Or it can mean, the relationship/friendship is getting deep and u need to figure out...what ground ure trespassin on here. that's my take. i love them. i wish songmeanings would put on "Now You're Gone" my absolute FAVORITE Floetry song

    My Interpretationi think its about people who have had something before ' we taste the familiar" and it ended but really didn't end and now it seems what they have is undefined so as satedm00n said ..u are not sure what ground your are trespassing on.

    General CommentThis song is about rekindling an old flame with someone that once hurt you. The singer is hesitant about going down the same road with this individual, especial in the physical aspect. The song really captures the debate and concern that comes with giving someone another chance...I love it!
