Takes a Little Time Lyrics

by Amy Grant

It takes a little time sometimes
To get your feet back on the ground
It takes a little time sometimes
To get the Titanic turned back around

It takes a little time sometimes
But baby you're not going down
It takes more than you've got right now
Give it give it time

What's this walking through my door
I know I've seen the look before
Sometimes on faces on the street
And sometimes in the mirror looking back at me

You can't fix this pain with money
You can't rush a weary soul
You can't sweep it under the rug now honey
It don't take a lot to know

It takes a little time sometimes
To get your feet back on the ground
It takes a little time sometimes
To get the Titanic turned back around

It takes a little time sometimes
But baby you're not going down
It takes more than you've got right now
Give it, give it time yeah, give it time

Now it may not be over by morning
Rome wasn't built in a day
You can name that thing a thousand times
And it won't make it go away

Let me put my arms around you
And hold you while you weep
We've been talking and you know what
I'm sick of this talk and it's nothing that won't keep

It takes a little time sometimes
To get your feet back on the ground
It takes a little time sometimes
To turn the Titanic around

It takes a little time sometimes
But baby you're not going down
It takes more than you've got right now
Give it give it time

Takes a little more time more time
(Turned back around)
To it around, around, around
(Baby you're not going down)
Takes a little time sometimes

You can't fix this pain with money
You can't rush a weary soul
You can't sweep it under the rug now honey
It don't take a lot to know
(No)

It takes a little time sometimes
To get your feet back on the ground
It takes a little time sometimes
To turn the Titanic around

It takes a little time sometimes
Baby you're not going down
You've got things to think of now
Give it give it time, give it give it time

It takes a little time sometimes yeah
It takes a little time sometimes
It takes a little time, to get your feet back on ground
Baby you're not going down
