Polly Scattergood – Poem Song lyrics
I try not to let my insecurities
Dictate who I am and who I want to be
I gave you all my words and my words and my soul so
Please try to be kind if you are in control

Because
Time takes, time takes, time takes
Time takes many tears away

If I had some elegance, some heir or grace
Or if I had, buttons made of silver or tops made of lace
Then I'd be that girl you want, I'd ooze with charm
And I'd have, diamonds on my fingers and you on my arm

But time takes, time take, time takes
Time takes many tears away

Everybody seems to just turn a blind eye,
On the 159 to Brixton where a blonde girl cries
And so I will always be that girl you never quite kissed
And I have ribbons on my fingers and cuts on my wrist

Cos time takes, time takes, time takes,
Time takes many tears away

If I was brave enough I'd get onto my knees
And I would ask for you to try again to love me please
Because I have never felt that unconditionally and
Learning takes some time but don't give up on me

Cos time takes, time takes, time takes,

Time takes many tears away.
Time takes, time takes, time takes courage
And time time, takes many tears away.

Black and blue my petals fall on broken glass
Please teach me how to love and to forget the past
Cos tiny steps I take each day but most days I crawl
Please try to kind because I often fall

Cos time takes, time takes, time takes
Time takes many tears away
