She just can't wait to see him again, or at least hear his voice. Appropriate, as the group's lead vocalist Valerie Day was his girlfriend, and later, his wife. The version of this song you've probably heard is the one with the stuttering vocal ("b-b-baby, I-I-I can't wait"). The original, which first appeared on the 1985 Nu Shooz EP Tha's Right, is more organic, focused on the horns. A 2002 cover by the British group Ladies First hit in the UK. The song went to on the Billboard Dance chart and had a huge impact across Europe. Nu Shooz followed it up with "Point Of No Return," which also topped the Dance tally and reached on the Hot 100, keeping them out of one-hit wonder territory. This was around before Stevie Nicks released her "I Can't Wait," but her song beat it to the charts about about two months.

I want to be with you right now anyway Reckless, so what? I can't wait to be around you. Take me, break me, right now - Why wait til "hell to pay"? So dumb, so what? I can't wait to be around you. Her skin is laced with poison Her words are laced with lies Affliction is waiting in her eyes (Take them willingly). I can't control this compulsion Like a moth into the flame Her fiery embrace completes my shame (Don't let go of me). We bathe in this denial Lay bare the secret place For just a little while Submit to this embrace. Pain unfolding Shame.
