You know it takes
A long, long time
You know it takes
A long, long time
You love her so
And still you know
That you will never
Want to let her go
Unless you leave her first
Then you come out on top
But, still
There's just one thing
You haven't got.

Peace of mind
Like when you treated her kind
It's hard to face
That open space.

You know it takes
A long, long time
You know it takes
A long, long time
When first you gave
And shared your soul
Showed her all those things
That take their toll
She knows your weak spot
But, she still gets you hot
So you do it again
Reveal what lies within.

And go for peace of mind
Like when you treated her kind
It's hard to face
That open space.

You're lookin' for
Peace of mind
Anywhere you can find
Still searchin' for
Peace of mind.

You know it takes
A long, long time
You know it takes
A long, long time.
