Deals with mistakes, regrets, aging, dashed dreams, and time as healer.

lyrics

If you’re hoping that the future’s going to bring you better days
And everything you know seems out of line
And everyone but you can see the error of your ways
Give it time, give it time

If an old wound has reopened and you’re wanting it to close
You can’t control what’s running through your mind
And you feel you’re just a player in the story that you chose
Give it time, give it time

Chorus:
You can cry in your coffee
Drown your worries in wine
You can eat all the comfort food you can find
You’ve just got to give it time

When the song you tried to write is laying crumpled on the floor
You’re facing up to being past your prime
And the ink that ran so freely isn’t flowing anymore
Give it time, give it time

Chorus:

When obstacles before you seem much bigger than they are
Mountain after mountain to be climbed
And all your aspirations have been set apart too far
Give it time, give it time

You can cry in your coffee
Drown your worries in wine
You can eat all the comfort food you can find

You can put pen to paper
Lay your heart on the lines
But in the end there’s only one way to leave it all behind
You’ve just got to give it time, give it time
