TAKE SOME TIME

I just wanna take some time

I just wanna take some time

I know that it’s not mine

I just gotta take it

I can’t make it

and I’m losing losing losing losing

losing my mind

I’ve been working on the line

I’ve been walking down that line

everybody thinks I’m fine

but I just can’t fake it

I can’t take it

and I’m losing losing losing losing

losing my mind

I stay up late at night

till the early morning light

say goodbye to all my friends

this is where it ends

and I’m losing losing losing losing

losing my mind

 

And if I’d never tasted the fruit

and if I’d never tried to be wise

and if I’d never given a hoot

then I could eat this compromise

 

AND I’M UP AGAINST THE WALL

WHERE THE PHOTONS NEVER FALL

GETTING TO KNOW MY PLACE

WITH THE ROACHES RATS AND LICE

AND IT MAKES ME WANT TO LAUGH

SO I THINK I’D BETTER CRY

 

I just wanna take some time

I just wanna take some time

I know that it’s not mine

I just gotta take it

I can’t make it

and I’m losing losing losing losing

losing my mind
