Lyrics

All It Takes Is Some Time

Written By: Minds Never Sleep

I’m here to start taking over what’s mine
And what I have left behind
I’m starting to see you’re looking at me
With those strange and wonder felt eyes

And all it takes is some time
To stop and see
Everything that’s mine

The slightest touch can bring back so much
Oh, I remember when in ’86 I was just a boy
And she had this smile
Oh, I remember when, I remember when

And all it takes is some time
To stop and see in between the lines
I can’t believe it’s taken all this time
To stop and see everything that’s mine

I use to believe we had some kind of destiny
And mine, mine was a lie
And mine, mine was a lie

I’m here today to start over
And pick up some things for the ride

And all it takes is some time
To stop and see in between the lines
I can’t believe it’s taken all this time
To stop and see everything that’s mine
