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

Feels 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)

Take your time

Slow down and take your time

Cause I'm startin’ to feel long in the tooth

Gotta find a way to age like wine

Take your time

Slow down and take your time

 

(VERSE)

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

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

He’s goin’ 100 on the highway

He's got liquor flowin’ in his veins

Well he’s 26 years old

But not too young to outrun his fate

 

(CHORUS)

So take your time

Slow down and 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)

'Cause 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

(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 yearning baby for a new start

'Cause it hurts too much to stay the same

I got an empty bottle of whiskey

Readin' the good book page for page

(CHORUS)

Take your time

Slow down and take your time

'Cause I'm startin’ to feel long in the tooth

Gotta find a way to age like wine

Take your time

Slow down and 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

I'm gonna take my time

Be sure to take your time
