Take Your Time

Album: Lay It Down (2008)
  • [Chorus]
    Just you take your time, oh
    Just you take your time

    Do you remember when
    We used to take our time
    You'd write me a letter, baby
    And I'd wait for you all night (oh)
    Now it seems everyone's
    Rushing around including you and I
    I wanna take a little time

    Just to fall in love again
    Cause they're telling me


    When I think about yesterday
    Everything was easy
    Everything was okay
    (Now, now, now)
    Now everything is going fast
    You're the best thing I ever had
    Aw and losing you
    Aw it'd make me, make me
    That would make me
    Feel so bad (hey, hey)
    Would you help me saying


    Sing low and take it slow
    I'm inclined to agree
    Cause ain't nobody living
    Can try to hurry me (can try to hurry me)

    [Chorus:Repeat x3] Writer/s: Ahmir Thompson, Al Green, Chalmers Alford, Corinne Bailey Rae, James Jason Poyser, Owen Biddle
