take your time

she was born on a cotton field
slaves and thieves beneath her side
she grew up without no friends
a little boat on stormy tides

take your time, take your time

many lies on older days
many tears are gone with prayers
she's still young with a frozen heart
a twisted soul many years apart

take your time, take your time

take your time, mind up your soul
life goes fast, take your control
don't be heavy with younger hearts
leave your home falling tears apart

roll away on an empty sea
find some love and make the people free
one stormy night with the rain falling down
a helpless soul in a little town

dusty roads and silly towns
empty souls go for worthless crowns
i'm still faithful, fighting for my peace
send my prayers for the world's release

take your time, take your time
