  • Even if we both break down tonight
    And you say you hate me, and we go to bed angry
    I know everything will be alright
    I'll be here waiting, I promise I'm changing
    I just need

    A little time to show you I'm worth it
    I know that I can be a difficult person
    I'm a stress case, drive you up the wall when I'm workin'
    Actually, I'm probably worse when I'm not, you don't deserve it
    Make you nervous 'cause you know I'ma break soon
    Every time I do, I say somethin' that hurts you
    Actin' like I'm gone, but we both in the same room
    I don't like to be wrong, which I know you relate to
    And I know I make you feel like you're at the end of your rope
    That's when I look at you and tell you I'd be better alone
    Just the pride talkin', isn't it? 'Cause both of us know
    I'm the definition of "wreck" if you look into my soul
    Comes out the most when I feel I'm in a vulnerable place
    Made a lot of mistakes I wish I knew how to erase
    When I'm afraid, might get distant and I push you away
    But no matter the case, I'ma do whatever it takes even if

    Even if we both break down tonight
    And you say you hate me, and we go to bed angry
    I know everything will be alright
    I'll be here waiting, I promise I'm changing
    I just need

    Time (oh)
    I, I need time (oh, oh)
    I just need time (oh)
    I, I need time (oh)
    Time (oh), time (oh)

    Yeah, way before I bought you the ring
    We were fighting back and forth like you were wearin' the thing
    Two passionate people not afraid to say what they think
    Lead to passionate conversation when it's hard to agree
    You know me well, sittin' on the edge of my seat
    Lookin' at life, overanalyzin' everything
    Always depressed, tryna find a better version of me
    Searching for somethin' I know's prolly right in front of my feet
    Stubborn as me? Maybe not, but you're close to it
    Got a lot of issues, I'm tryin' to work through 'em
    Going to therapy for you's somethin' that's worth doin'
    When I know you been there for me through all of my worst moments
    And I know it hurts knowing that I carry this weight on my chest
    Making it difficult for me to open up and connect
    Lot of regrets, I apologize for all of the stress
    That's not what I meant to do, you know I love you to death even if

    Even if we both break down tonight
    And you say you hate me, and we go to bed angry
    I know everything will be alright
    I'll be here waiting, I promise I'm changing
    I just need

    Time (oh)
    I, I need time (oh, oh)
    I just need time (oh)
    I, I need time (oh)
    Time (oh), time (oh)
    I just need time (oh)
    I, I need time (oh, oh)
    I just need time (oh)
    I, I need time (oh)
    Time (oh), time (oh) Writer/s: Nate Feuerstein, Tommee Profitt
