Lyrics

It Takes as Long as It Takes

Written By: Tyra Elliott Neftzger, Amy Neftzger

When will I be there?
How long will it take?
I’m so impatient
I don’t like to wait.

When will I grow up?
How long will it take?
I want to do things
I’ve got trouble to make.

So sit back, step down, relax
You’re gonna get lost if you’re going too fast
Put on the brakes
It takes as long as it takes.

When will my heart mend?
How long will it take?
I don’t want to be broken
It doesn’t feel safe.

When will it be over?
How long will it take?
It’s never too soon
And it’s always too late

So sit back, step down, relax
You’re gonna get lost if you’re going too fast
Put on the brakes
It takes as long as it takes.

I’m busy making more mistakes
I don’t have the time at all
Keep moving
Spinning all my wheels around
I’m going nowhere but it’s fast
I’m confusing the facts
I think it’s time to relax

So sit back, step down, relax
You’re gonna get lost if you’re going too fast
Put on the brakes
It takes as long as it takes.

Someday

Written By: Tyra Elliott Neftzger, Amy Neftzger

Someday
Is always out of reach
Someday
Leaves us without peace
Someday
Satisfies the now
Someday
Never is, somehow

Someday
Always keeps me waiting around

Someday
Plays like it’s a game
Someday
Wears just like a stain
Someday
Nothing will remain
Someday
We can start again

Someday
brings me nothing new
It just keeps me waiting
Like yesterday’s fool

Someday, you’ve betrayed me
Cause you’re always out of reach
Today, you’re saving me
That’s why I believe
Someday is never worth the cost
It always leaves me feeling lost
And I’m too busy, anyway
To wait for someday

Someday
Future in disguise
Someday
Never satisfies
Someday
Fills me up with lies
Someday
Good things will arrive

Someday
brings me nothing new
It just keeps me waiting
Like yesterday’s fool

Someday, you’ve betrayed me
Cause you’re always out of reach
Today, you’re saving me
That’s why I believe
Someday is never worth the cost
It always leaves me feeling lost
And I’m too busy, anyway
To wait for someday

Someday
You’re really not that great
I’ve got a future to create
So I can’t wait
For someday
