"These Are The Times" as written by Damon E Thomas and Kenneth B Edmonds....
It's taking everything in me
Not to kiss you over, under
Feel you inside, feel my thunder
How the hell could i not want cha
Girl it don't have to be a thang
I'll wait for you, you wait for me
Cause' true love is insisting we don't have to rush at all

These are the times we all wish for
The moment when less means so much more
We don't have to do a thing at all
We can just take our time and talk
And this is the way things need to be
No pressure from you and none from me
Just let the mood set the moment off
We can make love or not all

Be thinkin bout you all the time
Morning, noon and suppertime
Tear you up in little pieces
Swallow you like reeses pieces
Come on girl you know i need it
It ain't s'posed to be a thang
I know
If i wait for you, you'll wait for me
And i know
True loves insisting we don't have to rush at all

These are the times we all wish for
The moment when less means so much more
We don't have to do a thing at all
We can just take our time and talk
And this is the way things need to be
No pressure from you and none from me
Just let the mood set the moment off
We can make love or not all

I don't make promises
Cause i know my heart gets weak
I get around you
It makes them hard to keep
You bring out the best, you make me the man
God knows i'm proud to be

These are the times we all wish for
The moment when less means so much more
We don't have to do a thing at all
We can just take our time and talk
And this is the way things need to be
No pressure from you and none from me
Just let the mood set the moment off
We can make love or not all

    General Commentthis song ii think is about a guy who has all these thoughts running through his mind about what he wants to do to this girl, but he doesn't want to rush anything. even though he wants to, he see that the little things matter the most, like conversation and getting to know the girl. basically he doesn't want to make sex a big issue and it's hard for him, but he will wait for her as long as they're together because he loves her. i wish more guys were like that...

    Song MeaningI think this song is about a guy trying to get to a girl by being something that he is not. basically something that his friends pressure him to be instead of being himself. if you seen the video, there are two sisqo's one who is the fake one and the real one, who is wearing an iron mask and prisoned, and the other sisqo who is a king and lives lavishly. meaning that the real him is locked away. but then later when he is released, the girl finally likes the real sisqo. and the fake one is in denial so they both fight. and the real one wins. meaning that the guy made the right descision by being himself instead of being what people want him to be towards women. but if ya still dnt understand watch the video. it explains it all. it is based on "The man with the iron mask" meaning its just a front that he's putting on, for the girl to like him.

    My InterpretationI believe this songs is about a man and woman who just recently ended their relationship because their lives are going in two different directions. They most likely ended their relationship for honest reasons.. (too young, different directions or lives) and although they cant be together at the moment, they still love each other deeply. When they're around each other, its very hard to maintain whatever agreement. "its taking everything in me, not to kiss you over, under" . But they have spent enough time apart to know that: "this is the way things need to be, no pressure from you and none from me".
