"Don't give it up" as written by and Lemar/brown Obika....
[Chorus]
Don't give it up
What you possess is special
No need to rush
Tell him how you feel
He'll wait a while
What is meant to be will be,
So don't give it up,
Don't give it up!

It's so easy to find a man,
But it ain't easy to find real love,
She's been searching all of fifteen years,
And now she's found it,
But she's so scared,

He wants to go faster, faster,
She wants to just slow it down,
He wants to go further, further,
Let me break it down!

[Chorus]

See you're so young lady,
Got your life in front of you,
I know you love that boy,
But a real man deserves you,
And he ain't real,
And maybe he's not the one,
If he don't understand how you feel,

He says if you love me, love me,
Why won't you just do it now?
She says she ain't ready, ready,
Sister listen now!

See there's so much for her to be thinking about,
But all she sees is her man,
True love lasts more than one night,
You will know the perfect time,
So wait till you're ready,

[Chorus]

Let the beat roll on and on and on,
Let the beat roll on and on and on,
And the beat goes on and on and on,
Let the beat go on and on and on,
Until you're ready baby,
Until you're ready baby.

    General CommentI used to listen to this when I was fifteen, so the fifteen years thing really resonated with me. I think it's about not being tied down to just one guy, or at least being independent and not depending on a guy. You're your own woman, just because you f*ck a guy doesn't mean he owns you ("love lasts more than one night") and you have a whole career in front of you, you're still young and free so don't rush into being some guy's wife.
