It's gonna take some time this time

To get myself in shape

I really fell out of line this time

I really missed the gate



The birds on the telephone line (next time)

Are cryin' out to me (next time)

And I won't be so blind next time

And I'll find some harmony



But it's goin' to take some time this time

And I can't make demands

But like the young trees in the wintertime

I'll learn how to bend



(*) After all the tears we've spent

How could we make amends

So it's one more round for experience

And I'm on the road again

And it's goin' to take some time this time



And I can't make demands

I'll learn how to bend



It's gonna take some time this time

No matter what I've planned

But like the young trees in the wintertime

I'll learn how to bend



Repeat (*)
