I try not to let my insecurities
Dictate who I am, and who I want to be.
I gave you all my words, and my words are my soul.
So, please try to be kind, if you are in control.
Because
Time takes, time takes, times takes, time takes many tears away.

If I had some elegance, some airs or grace,
Or if I had buttons made of silver,
Or tops made of lace.
Then, I'd be that girl you want.
I'd ooze with charm.
And I'd have diamonds on my fingers, and you on my arm.
But
Time takes, time takes, times takes, time takes many tears away.

Everybody seems to just turn a blind eye
On the 159 to Brixton, when a blonde girl cries,
And so, I will always be that girl that you never quite kissed,
And I've ribbons on my fingers and cuts on my wrist.
Because
Time takes, time takes, times takes, time takes many tears away.

If I was brave enough I'd get onto my knees,
And I would ask for you to try again
To love me please.
Because I have never felt that unconditionally
And learning takes some time but don't give up on me.
'Cause time takes, time takes, times takes, time takes many tears away.

Time takes, time takes, time takes courage!
And time, time takes many tears away.

Black and blue my petals fall on broken glass.
Please, teach me how to love and to forget the past.
Because tiny steps I take each day, but most days I crawl.
Please, try to be kind because I often fall.
'Cause time takes, time takes, times takes, time takes many tears away.
