I think "I Do Not Hook Up" by Kelly Clarkson would be a great Waiting Till Marriage song, or at least a No Casual Sex song. Or maybe not? Either way, it never fails to give me strength when I feel insecure about my decision.

Oh, sweetheart put the bottle down, you've got too much talent

I see you through those bloodshot eyes

There's a cure, you've found it

Slow motion sparks, you've caught that chill

Now don't deny it

But boys will be boys, oh, yes they will

They don't wanna define it

Just give up the game and get into me

If you're looking for thrills then get cold feet

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I go slow

So if you want me I don't come cheap

Keep your head on my hand and your heart on your sleeve

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I fall deep

'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say goodnight

I can't cook, no, but I can clean

Up the mess you left

Lay your head down and feel the beat as I kiss your forehead

This may not last but this is now so love the one you're with

You wanna chase but you're chasin' your tail

A quick fix won't ever get you well

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I go slow

So if you want me I don't come cheap

Keep your head on my hand and your heart on your sleeve

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I fall deep

'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say

'Cause I feel the distance between us

Could be over with the snap of your finger, oh, no

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I go slow

So if you want me I don't come cheap

Keep your head on my hand and your heart on your sleeve

Oh, no I do not hook up, up I fall deep

'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say

'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say goodnight

Oh, sweetheart put the bottle down 'cause you don't wanna miss out

Josh Turner's new single "Time is Love" is a good truly devoted husband song....so cute <3

[Josh Turner]

I know I gotta put in the hours,

Make the money while the sunlight shines

But anything I gotta get done,

It can get done some other time

Time is love, gotta run,

Love to hang longer,

But I got someone who waits,

Waits for me and right now

She's where I need to be,

Time is love, gotta run

I only get so many minutes,

Don't wanna spend 'em all on the clock

In the time that we spent talkin',

How many kisses have I lost?

Time Is love, gotta run,

Love to hang longer,

But I got someone who waits,

Waits for me and right now

She's where I need to be,

Time is love, gotta run.

Gotta fly

Fly

Before one moment

Gets by...

Time Is love, gotta run,

Love to hang longer,

But I got someone who waits,

Waits for me and right now

She's where I need to be

Time is love, gotta run,

Love to hang longer,

But I got someone who waits,

Waits for me and right now

She's where I need to be,

Time is love, gotta run.

Time is Love, gotta run...

The song Yes by Beyonce

Yes

I said yes to your number

And yes to you dating me

Yes we can be together

But you gotta wait for me

The first time i said no

Its like I never said yes

I said yes we can be together

Yes you can stay with me

But when I say no not tonight

You actin so ungratefully

The first time I said no

It's like I never said yes

You was on the wall

I was with my crew

You was watching me baby

I was watching you

Slowly you walked over

I maintained my cool

You said hello to me

I said hello to you

You ask me where I'm from

I asked you what you do

You some how intrigued me

I thought you were so cool

Somewhere between hi and goodbye

I felt so comfortable

I felt like we could talk all night

So i gave my number to you

I said yes to your number

And yes to you dating me

Yes we can be together

But you gotta wait for me

The first time I said no

It's like I never said yes

I said yes we can be together

Yes you can stay with me

But when I say no not tonight

You actin so ungratefully

The first time I said no

It's like I never said yes

Certainly you can call me baby

I love to here from you

Yes of course you can come and see me boy

I wanna get to know you more

Sure I'm feeling you

No baby, not yet

We can't take that next step

Why you getting so upset, boy you

Act as though I never told you yes before

You are so ungrateful

You was at my house

I was sitting on the couch

You was really buggin

So I told you to get out

I had been misjudging you

You had a lotta nerve, you

Too damn old to be so immature

I hope you learn

You said I move too slow

I showed you to the door

You said you call me later

I said don't call no more

It's cool if you can't wait for me

I'm glad you let me know

Cuz you showed me your true face baby

The first time I said no

JIm Croce's "Time in a Bottle." It's about finding your ideal partner.

Jim Croce - "Time in a Bottle"

If I could save time in a bottle

The first thing that I'd like to do

Is to save every day

Till Eternity passes away

Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever

If words could make wishes come true

I'd save every day like a treasure and then

Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time

To do the things you want to do

Once you find them

I've looked around enough to know

That you're the one I want to go

Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes

And dreams that had never come true

The box would be empty

Except for the memory

Of how they were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time

To do the things you want to do

Once you find them

I've looked around enough to know

That you're the one I want to go

Through time with

Be my only, by FM radio, it might not be about wtm, but it can definately be interpreted that way.

Some of the lyrics:

i am yours

and i know that you're mine

you're worth waiting for

you're worth waiting for

be my only

be my only

be my only

your hand in mine

i swear love speeds up time

and wind blows southern skies

like a lullaby

Waiting for a Girl Like You

Foreigner

So long

I've been looking too hard, I've waiting too long

Sometimes I don't know what I will find

I only know it's a matter of time

When you love someone

When you love someone

It feels so right, so warm and true

I need to know if you feel it too

Maybe I'm wrong

Won't you tell me if I'm coming on too strong?

This heart of mine has been hurt before

This time I wanna be sure

I've been waiting for a girl like you

To come into my life

I've been waiting for a girl like you

A love that will survive

I've been waiting for someone new

To make me feel alive

Yeah, waiting for a girl like you

To come into my life

You're so good

When we make love it's understood

It's more than a touch or a word we say

Only in dreams could it be this way

When you love someone

Yeah, really love someone

Now, I know it's right

From the moment I wake up till deep in the night

There's no where on earth that I'd rather be

Than holding you, tenderly

I've been waiting for a girl like you

To come into my life

I've been waiting for a girl like you

And a love that will survive

I've been waiting for someone new

To make me feel alive

Yeah, waiting for a girl like you

To come into my life

I've been waiting, waiting for you, ooh

Ooh, I've been waiting

I've been waiting, yeah

I've been waiting for a girl like you

I've been waiting

Won't you come into my life?

My life?

This isn't necessarily a waiting til marriage song, but rather after successfully waiting! Its a great song, lyrics fit that just perfectly, despite it being really sexual, actually, haha, but its a classic and I love this guy!

It talks about that special kind of love, while being together, and growing old together. "Lay you down" by Conway Twitty

I went searching, and I found some good ones!

Moriah Peters - "Haven't Even Kissed"

I have been waiting patiently

I locked up my heart, gave God the key

And I've had to trust Him for a while

But now I can't see you and not smile

I didn't think we could get here

Now I'm believing

Before we met

The world said I was dreaming

This feeling is something from Heaven

Beautifully more than I could've imagined

And I have always prayed for something like this

And we haven't even kissed

Sometimes you seemed so out of reach

I held onto hope but I still felt lonely

Then I gave God the pen to write this love story

I didn't think we could get here

Now I'm believing

Before we met

The world said I was dreaming

This feeling is something from Heaven

Beautifully more than I could've imagined

And I have always prayed for something like this

And we haven't even kissed

I asked for a miracle

I got so much more

I didn't think we could get here

And now I'm believing

Before we met

The world said I was dreaming

This feeling is something from Heaven

Beautifully more than I could've imagined

I didn't think we could get here

But now I'm with you

Even more than my wildest dreams have come true

And we haven't even, haven't even kissed, no

And I have always prayed for something like this

Yes, I have always prayed for something like this

And we haven't even kissed

No, we haven't even kissed

I didn't think we could get here

But now I'm with you

Even more than my wildest dreams have come true

And we haven't even, haven't even kissed, no

Beach Boys - "Wouldn't It Be Nice"

Wouldn't it be nice if we were older

Then we wouldn't have to wait so long

And wouldn't it be nice to live together

In the kind of world where we belong

You know its gonna make it that much better

When we can say goodnight and stay together

Wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up

In the morning when the day is new

And after having spent the day together

Hold each other close the whole night through

Happy times together we've been spending

I wish that every kiss was neverending

Wouldn't it be nice

Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray it might come true

Baby then there wouldn't be a single thing we couldn't do

We could be married

And then we'd be happy

Wouldn't it be nice

You know it seems the more we talk about it

It only makes it worse to live without it

But lets talk about it

Wouldn't it be nice

Debbie Winans - "Worth the Wait"

Masterful mind

What a design

All He ever wanted was to bring us pleasure.

He showers love

Down from above

Showing by example that true love endures

What have we here

Hearts filled with fear

No that's not the way He planned it

It's not the way it goes

Chorus:

It's worth the wait

It will be great

Don't give your goods to just an anybody

It's worth the wait

It will be great

Give it to the one who accepts the challenge

Takes your hand in marriage and promises to keep you safe from harm

It's worth the wait

It's not a myth

God gave this gift (oh yes He did)

But He never did intend for it to hurt you

Don't break the rules

Or life could be cruel

And later you will find you've wasted priceless treasure

What have we here

Hearts filled with fear

No that's not the way He planned it

It's not the way it goes

It's worth the wait

And it will be great

Don't give your goods to just an anybody

It's worth the wait

It will be great

Give it to the one who accepts the challenge

Takes your hand in marriage and promises to keep you safe from harm

Don't you get caught up in the moment

(even though it may feel nice) oh yeah

Don't you be fooled for just one moment

(that it must be alright)

It was created for your pleasure

But it was intended within measure

Please understand that it's worth the wait

It's worth the wait

It will be great

Don't give your goods (don't give your goods) to just an anybody

It's worth the wait(I know it is)

It will be great( I know it will)

Give it to the one who accepts the challenge

Takes your hand in marriage and promises to keep you safe from harm

It's worth the wait

Ooh oohooh yeah

It's worth the wait

Jaci Velasquez - "I promise"

Lord, you know my heart

And all my desires

And the secret things I'll never tell.

Lord, you know them well.

Though I may be young,

I see and understand

That at times, like sheep, we go astray

And things get out of hand.

So I promise to be true to you,

To live my life in purity

As unto you, waiting for the day

When I hear you say,

Here is the one I have created

Just for you.

Until then, O Lord

I will be content

Knowing that true love will come someday.

It will only come from you.

Cause I have seen the suffering

That loneliness can cause

When we choose to give our love away

Without a righteous cause.

So I promise to be true to you,

To live my life in purity

As unto you, waiting for the day

When I hear you say,

Here is the one I have created

Just for you.

33 Miles - "Worth the Wait"

I can see your heart is yearning

Everything is so unclear

Is the answer ever coming

After all these years

It’s not an easy feeling

Sometimes it seems unfair

But He knows just what He’s doing

With unanswered prayers

So hold on

It’s worth the wait

Just keep believing

God has perfect timing

Never early, never late

It takes a little patience

And it takes a lot of faith

But it’s worth the wait

What if what you’re desperate for

Isn’t what you really need

What if there was something more

Than what you dreamed

We may not always see

We may not understand

But He knows just what He’s doing

He’s got a bigger plan

So hold on

CHORUS

In His time, you’ll be fine

All this waiting, now, is by design

CHORUS

In His time, you’ll be fine

All this waiting, now, is by design

***

John Waller - "While I'm Waiting"

I'm waiting

I'm waiting on You, Lord

And I am hopeful

I'm waiting on You, Lord

Though it is painful

But patiently, I will wait

I will move ahead, bold and confident

Taking every step in obedience

While I'm waiting

I will serve You

While I'm waiting

I will worship

While I'm waiting

I will not faint

I'll be running the race

Even while I wait

I'm waiting

I'm waiting on You, Lord

And I am peaceful

I'm waiting on You, Lord

Though it's not easy

But faithfully, I will wait

Yes, I will wait

I will serve You while I'm waiting

I will worship while I'm waiting

I will serve You while I'm waiting

I will worship while I'm waiting

I will serve you while I'm waiting

I will worship while I'm waiting on You, Lord

Georgia Satellites / The Calling - "Keep Your Hands To Yourself"

(Note: The singer of the song is not that interested in WTM, but his girlfriend is!)

Well, I got a little change in my pocket going jingle lingle ling

Want to call you on the telephone, baby, and give you a ring

But each time we talk, I get the same old thing

Always no huggin', no kissin' until I get a wedding ring

Well, my honey, my baby, don't put my love upon on shelf

She said, "Don't hand me no lines And keep your hands to yourself"

But baby baby baby, why you treat me this way?

You know I'm still your lover boy, I still feel the same way

That's when she told me a story 'bout free milk and a cow

She said, "No huggin', no kissin', until I get a wedding vow"

My honey, my baby, don't put my love upon on shelf

She said, "Don't hand me no lines And keep your hands to yourself"

You see I wanted her real bad and I was about to give in

That's when she started talkin' about true love started talkin' about sin

I said, "Honey, I'll live with you for the rest of my life"

She said, "No huggin', no kissin' until you make me your wife"

My honey, my baby, don't put my love upon on shelf

She said, "Don't hand me no lines And keep your hands to yourself"

***

And a few amateur, but good, songs I found on YouTube:

Stephanie Wicks - "I Can't Wait"

The lyrics weren't listed, but some of the lyrics I heard included:

"I can't wait,

Wait, I can,

Like I have been, baby."

and

Faith Brown - "Worth the Wait"

Sick of all these stupid love songs flooding the radio

Love exists, I know, I know, I know

It's just I'm tired of trying to believe in something I cannot see

It's hard to imagine he's out there, waiting for me

Chorus:

So, I won't be going out tonight

looking for someone just because

I won't give myself away

because he'll be here someday

And he's worth, worth the wait

He's worth, worth the wait

Tired of all these condescending words flooding my ears

It's a nonstop hurricane, my dear

It's just I'm tired of looking for someone in this big sea

It's hard to imagine he's out there, waiting for me

Bridge:

Just hangin' around this town

because it's all I can do

Looking at all these people

but only thinking about you

Hi,

this song is not exactly a waiting-song but I still wanted to share it with you because it talks about overcoming/dealing with someone´s sexual past. Some waiters have girlfriends/boyfriends who were not waiters before and who already had sex. For the waiter it can be hard to deal with that. But it can also be hard for the non-waiter (who hopefully does now wait with you) in the relationship when she/he get constantly judged (even though sometimes uncounsciously) by his waiter-partner for having sex with others before.
This song just reminded me of the feelings a non-waiter maybe can have when his/her partner is judging him/her and giving him/her a hard time because of his/her sexual past. Maybe some of you are in this sort of situation right now and are dealing with the sexual past of your loved one.

Carrie Underwood- Good girl

THIS SONG IS AWESOME.

Lyrics:

Hey, good girl (hey, good girl)

With your head in the clouds

I bet you I can tell you

What you’re thinkin' about

You'll see a good boy (you see a good boy)

Gonna give you the world

But he’s gonna leave you cryin'

With your heart in the dirt

His lips are dripping honey

But he’ll sting you like a bee

So lock up all your love and

Go and throw away the key

Hey good girl (hey, good girl)

Get out while you can

I know you think you got a good man

[Hook]

Why, why you gotta be so blind?

Won’t you open up your eyes?

It’s just a matter of time 'til you find

He’s no good, girl

No good for you

You better get to getting on your goodbye shoes and go, go, go...

Better listen to me

He’s low, low, low...

Hey, good girl (hey, good girl)

You got a heart of gold

You want a white wedding

And a hand you can hold

Just like you should, girl (Just like you should, girl)

Like every good girl does

Want a fairy tale ending, somebody to love

But he’s really good at lying

Yeah, he’ll leave you in the dust

'Cause when he says forever

Well, it don’t mean much

Hey good girl (hey, good girl)

So good for him

Better back away honey

You don’t know where he’s been

[Hook]

Why, why you gotta be so blind?

Won’t you open up your eyes?

It’s just a matter of time 'til you find

He’s no good, girl

No good for you

You better get to getting on your goodbye shoes and go, go, go...

Yeah yeah yeah, he’s low

Yeah yeah yeah

[bridge]

Oh, he’s no good, girl

Why can’t you see?

He’ll take your heart and break it

Listen to me, yeah

[Hook/Outro]

Why, why you gotta be so blind?

Won’t you open up your eyes?

Just a matter of time 'til you find

He’s no good, he’s no good

Won’t you open up your eyes?

Just a matter of time 'til you find

He’s no good, girl

No good for you

You better get to getting on your goodbye shoes

The 'white wedding' line makes me think shes hinting at giving advice to a girl to wait until marriage.

The song's relatively recent, i heard it when i was watching cyberbully.

Lyin' here with you so close to me

It's hard to fight these feelings when it feels so hard to breathe

Caught up in this moment

Caught up in your smile

I've never opened up to anyone

So hard to hold back when I'm holding you in my arms

We don't need to rush this

Let's just take it slow

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight

Just a touch of the fire burning so bright

No I don't want to mess this thing up

I don't want to push too far

Just a shot in the dark that you just might

Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life

So baby I'm alright, with just a kiss goodnight

I know that if we give this a little time

It'll only bring us closer to the love we wanna find

It's never felt so real, no it's never felt so right

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight

Just a touch of the fire burning so bright

No I don't want to mess this thing up

I don't want to push too far

Just a shot in the dark that you just might

Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life

So baby I'm alright, with just a kiss goodnight

No I don't want to say goodnight

I know it's time to leave, but you'll be in my dreams

Tonight

Tonight

Tonight

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight

Just a touch of the fire burning so bright

No I don't want to mess this thing up

I don't want to push too far

Just a shot in the dark that you just might

Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life

So baby I'm alright, oh, let's do this right, with just a kiss goodnight

With a kiss goodnight

Kiss goodnight

Oceans apart day after day

And I slowly go insane

I hear your voice on the line

But it doesn't stop the pain

If I see you next to never

How can we say forever

Wherever you go

Whatever you do

I will be right here waiting for you

Whatever it takes

Or how my heart breaks

I will be right here waiting for you

I took for granted, all the times

That I thought would last somehow

I hear the laughter, I taste the tears

But I can't get near you now

Oh, can't you see it baby

You've got me going crazy

Wherever you go

Whatever you do

I will be right here waiting for you

Whatever it takes

Or how my heart breaks

I will be right here waiting for you

I wonder how we can survive

This romance

But in the end if I'm with you

I'll take the chance

Wherever you go

Whatever you do

I will be right here waiting for you

Whatever it takes

Or how my heart breaks

I will be right here waiting for you

Waiting for you

Oh baby don't it feel like heaven right now

Don't it feel like something from a dream

Yeah I've never known nothing quite like this

Don't it feel like tonight might never be again

Baby we know better than to try and pretend

No one coulda ever told me 'bout this

The waiting is the hardest part

Every day you see one more card

You take it on faith, you take it to the heart

The waiting is the hardest part

Well yeah I might have chased a couple women around

All it ever got me was down

Then there were those that made me feel good

But never as good as I feel right now

Baby you're the only one that's ever known how

To make me wanna live like I wanna live now

The waiting is the hardest part

Every day you get one more yard

You take it on faith, you take it to the heart

The waiting is the hardest part

Oh don't let it kill you baby, don't let it get to you

Don't let it kill you baby, don't let it get to you

I'll be you bleedin' heart, I'll be your cryin' fool

Don't let this go too far

Don't let it get to you

The waiting is the hardest part

Every day you get one more yard

You take it on faith, you take it to the heart

The waiting is the hardest part

Yeah, the waiting is the hardest part

Another great song is by Boyce Avenue called "On My Way".
The story behind the song is this:

"This song just kind of poured out of me one night. I had just finished watching a movie in my apartment and I was feeling super inspired, so I picked up an acoustic guitar and in a few hours it was done. Part of the reason I think it came together so quickly was because it is definitely the most personal song I´ve ever written. It´s for the girl I will spend the rest of my life with, but haven´t met yet..."

Just a touch of the fire burning so bright

No I don't want to mess this thing up

I don't want to push too far

Just a shot in the dark that you just might

Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life

So baby I'm alright, with just a kiss goodnight

I know that if we give this a little time

It'll only bring us closer to the love we wanna find

It's never felt so real, no it's never felt so right

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight

Just a touch of the fire burning so bright

No I don't want to mess this thing up

I don't want to push too far

Just a shot in the dark that you just might

Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life

So baby I'm alright, with just a kiss goodnight

No I don't want to say goodnight

I know it's time to leave, but you'll be in my dreams

Tonight

Tonight

Tonight

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight

Just a touch of the fire burning so bright

No I don't want to mess this thing up

I don't want to push too far

Just a shot in the dark that you just might

Be the one I've been waiting for my whole life

So baby I'm alright, oh, let's do this right, with just a kiss goodnight

With a kiss goodnight

Kiss goodnight
