Just had to call you
Knew you'd be home
Know that it's late
But there's something that you ought to know
You ought to know

Just gotta tell you
Know I been wrong
I guess what I gave you
Didn't last very long
But I hope you can hear me
Going out of my mind
Cause it's four in the morning and I'm
puttin' it all on the line

Give it time, time, time - give it time
Give it time, time, time - give it time
You can try, try, try - you can try
Give it time, time, time - give it time

Just had to call you
There's nowhere to go
Drinkin' all night
Just tryin' to find my way home
And I'm all alone

Just had to tell you
I know I've been wrong
I guess what I gave you
Didn't last very long
But I hope you can hear me
Goin' out of my mind
Cause it's four in the morning and I'm
puttin' it all on the line

Give it time, time, time - give it time
Give it time, time, time - give it time
You can try, try, try - you can try
Give it time, time, time - give it time
