Lyrics

Take your time
I can wait
For all the love I know will be mine
If you take your time
Take your time,
though it's late
Heart strings will sing like a string of twine
If you take your time
Take your time
and take mine too
I have time to spend
Take your time
go with me through
Times 'till all times end
Take your time
I can wait
For all the love I know will be mine
If you take your time
Take your time
and take mine too
I have time to spend
Take your time
go with me through
Times 'till all times end
Take your time
I can wait
For all the love I know will be mine
If you take your time
