  • When I was a boy
    I was always caught in the middle
    I was never a winner
    Just a loner in the crowd
    Looking for a way out

    Then I grew a little older
    And a little bolder
    I grew impatient
    The future I was chasing
    Never seemed to be within my reach
    Til I heard somebody say

    (Slow, slow down...)
    Nothing's gonna happen before it's time
    (Slow, slow down...)
    Let the pieces fall into place and you'll be fine

    (Take your time)
    So I'm waiting,
    Cause I know I'm gonna be
    (Next in line)
    To claim my prize, and be all that I wanna be
    I work so hard to earn my place
    And good things come to those who wait

    (Those who wait)
    (Good things come)

    So made it out, eventually
    I took the leap
    And I landed on my feet
    Yeah I found my team, my family
    And as I chase this dream
    I know that they believe in me
    And we're onto something good (I know)
    We're 'bout to conquer this world
    I'm so glad that
    I took my own time
    I'm glad I did it the right way

    (Slow, slow down...)
    Now I listen to my instincts when I lose my way
    (Slow, slow down...)
    And that's when they say

    (Take your time)
    So I'm waiting,
    Cause I know I'm gonna be
    (Next in line)
    To claim my prize, and be all that I wanna be
    I work so hard to earn my place
    And good things come to those who wait

    (Those who wait)
    (Good things come)

    Now I know if I died tomorrow
    I wouldn't regret a single thing
    I wanna look back on where I've been
    And know that I made, my own way
    That I lived each day, and owned it
    Working for that good thing, that good thing

    (Take your time)
    So I'm waiting,
    Cause I know I'm gonna be
    (Next in line)
    To claim my prize, and be all that I wanna be
    I work so hard to earn my place
    And good things come to those who wait

    (Take your time)
    Good things, those who wait
    (Next in line)
    I appreciate those who wait
    Thank you to those who wait
    Good things come Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
