It Takes Time

lyrics

Water’s getting deeper
And I can’t feel my feet
I keep on bailing buckets
But it flows right back to me

Everything is put away
The children are asleep
But the water’s getting deeper
And I can’t feel my feet

Oh, this is gonna take time
How am I gonna make time

Everything seems different
The colors all look strange
And light comes down in shafts here
Underneath the waves

But everything is in its place
The children are asleep
The water’s getting deeper
And I can’t feel my feet

Oh, this is gonna take time
How am I gonna make time

I am provider
But providence has been swayed
And by design
Nothing is ever the same
I thought that time
Had only one way to go
I learned how to swim
But not to breathe underwater

Oh, this is gonna take time
How am I gonna make time

I can’t feel my feet
I can’t feel my feet
