These Things Take Time Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

My eyes have seen the glory of the sacred wonder kind
You took me behind a disused railway line
And said, "I know a place where we can go where we are not known"
And you gave me something that I won't forget too soon

But I can't believe you'd ever care
And this is why you will never care
These things take time
I know that I'm the most inept that ever stepped

I'm spellbound, but a woman divides
And the hills are alive with celibate cries
But you know where you came from, you know where
You're going and you know where you belong

You said I was ill, and you were not wrong
But I can't believe you'd ever care
And this is why you will never care
These things take time
I know that I'm the most inept that ever stepped

Oh, the alcoholic afternoons
When we sat in your room
They meant more to me
Than any, than any living thing on earth

They had more worth
Than any living thing on earth
On earth, on earth, oh

Vivid and in your prime
You will leave me behind
You will leave me behind

Songwriters
MORRISSEY, STEVEN PATRICK/MARR, JOHNNY
