Nice N Slow

Written By: Althea Battle- Lyrics only

Do you know what’s on my mind? If you look inside it’s not that hard to find. Pure thoughts of ecstasy; my heart is racing internally. I want to slow it down, and make sure this time around; that we get deep off into the mood. See my silhouette silkiness in the nude.

This time take your time do it right now baby.
This time ease your mind; do it nice-n-slow.

Pick me I’m your flower. You have to be gentle with me. I’m ready to raise your tower. I know that’s it’s raining inside of me. Let the elegance of your tender touch melt my soul. With your manly hand pull me closer make me whole. I need a gentleman a comforter to go slow. Taste my body cream; make me scream stay down below.

This time take your time do it right now baby.
This time ease your mind; do it nice-n-slow.
