Can’t Take Your Time

I’m always standing around here

Trying to understand your “what ifs”

While knowing my own aren’t that clear

Hoping that you and I will see as time sifts

—————————————————————–

But though the grains are looking small

They’re still so completely mixed

That maybe there will be a soft fall

When I stop trying alone to get this fixed

—————————————————————–

You can’t take your time this time

I won’t write that same old rhyme

If you do take your time this time

I’ll be crossing back over that line

Oh you can’t take your time this time

Cause I won’t wait for another false sign

—————————————————————–

I won’t meet another who’s the same

And I don’t want at all for you to change

I like you from your eyes to your name

But I won’t always be in your range

—————————————————————–

I want to know that you really care

I can’t just hope that you really do

And if you still aren’t really there

I can’t wait like I want on you

—————————————————————–

You can’t take your time this time

I won’t write that same old rhyme

If you do take your time this time

I’ll be crossing back over that line

Oh you can’t take your time this time

Cause I won’t wait for another false sign

—————————————————————–

 And If I don’t know right now

What makes me think I ever will?

So do what you really want to now

But know I won’t be standing still

—————————————————————–

And I don’t want this to be the end

But I really need a real friend

If real effort is what you won’t send

Then I guess this is the end
