Take Your Time

 

 

 

 

 

 

(VERSE)

I’ve got the devil in my pocket

Got a cross around my neck

I got a girl so far away

Seems like years since I’ve touched her face

I got a yearnin’ baby for a new start

‘Cause it hurts too much to stay the same

I got a full bottle of whiskey

And I ain’t left the house in days

 

(CHORUS

I’m gonna take my time

Yea I’m gonna take my time

Startin’ to feel long in the tooth

Gotta find a way to age like wine

And take my time

Slow down and take my time

 

(VERSE)

Well they say the world can change in the blink of on eye

I read in the paper today about a boy who lost his life

He’s goin’ 100 on the highway

Liquor flowin’ in his veins

Well he’s 26 years old

But not to young to outrun his fate

 

(CHORUS)

You gotta take your time

Take your time

‘Cause your youth is more than just a word

That will make you cross the line

Take your time

Slow down and take your time

 

(BRIDGE)

The world will take your plans 

And turn ‘em upside down

Your heart can beat so fast

It’ll turn your body inside out

Do you believe in faith and God and love live in this old town

 

Take your time

Slow down and take your time

i’m gonna take my time

Slow down and take my time
