  • It takes a little time sometimes
    To get your feet back on the ground
    It takes a little time sometimes
    To get the Titanic turned back around
    It takes a little time sometimes
    But baby, you're not goin' down
    It takes more than you got right now
    Give it, give it time

    What's this walkin' through my door?
    I know I've seen the look before
    Sometimes in faces on the street
    Sometimes in the mirror looking back at me
    You can't fix this pain with money
    You can't rush a weary soul
    You can't sweep it under the rug, now honey
    It don't take a lot to know

    It takes a little time sometimes
    To get your feet back on the ground
    It takes a little time sometimes
    To get the Titanic turned back around
    It takes a little time sometimes
    But baby, you're not goin' down
    It takes more than you got right now
    Give it, give it time

    Yeah, give it time

    Well, it may not be over by morning
    Rome wasn't built in a day
    You can name that thing a thousand times
    And it won't make it go away
    Let me put my arms around you
    And hold you while you weep
    We've been talkin'
    And you know what, I'm sick of this talk
    And it's nothin' that won't keep

    It takes a little time sometimes
    To get your feet back on the ground
    It takes a little time sometimes
    To turn the Titanic around
    It takes a little time sometimes
    But baby, you're not going down
    It takes more than you got right now
    Give it, give it time

    It takes a little more time, more time
    (Turn the Titanic around) turn it around, around, around
    (Baby, you're not goin' down) takes a little time sometimes

    You can't fix this pain with money
    You can't rush a weary soul
    You can't sweep it under the rug now, honey
    It don't take a lot to know (know)

    It takes a little time sometimes
    To get your feet back on the ground
    It takes a little time sometimes
    To turn the Titanic around
    It takes a little time sometimes
    But baby, you're not goin' down
    You got things to think of now
    So give it, give it time

    Give it, give it time
    It takes a little time sometimes, yeah
    It takes a little time sometimes
    It takes a little time
    To get your feet back on the ground
    Baby, you're not goin' down Writer/s: Amy Grant, Wayne Kirkpatrick
