verse: D D G D [A G] D
chorus: Em Bm [G F#m] A Em Bm G A

try, sure that it's enough
there's nowhere left to hide
& push has come to shove
it's just a point of pride for you my love.
wait these words come off the cuff
we both arrive too late
for what you're thinking of
you'd better learn to take your time my love.

we can't change & there's no saving
those who come along
pay this price & live this life &
all the wrongs are right before too long

make me admit & i'll say it's true
i'm gonna commit to the likes of you
if you'll have me, i know it's tough
all i've got is not enough
but pride for you my love.
you talk me down baby, but you don't talk down
& make my heart sing with the smallest sound
& i've got these bags, oh all my stuff
you smooth it out when things get rough
& you take your time my love


[repeat 1st & 2nd verse at the same time]
take your time my love...
take, oh you take your time my love.
