Chorus:
E                 A     B
It takes a little time sometimes
B                                     E 
to get your feet back on the ground
E                 A     B
It takes a little time sometimes
B                                        E
to get the titanic turned back around
E                 A     B
It takes a little time sometimes
B                            E
but baby you are not going down
E                 A     B
It takes more than you got right now
B                    (E)
give it, give it time

Verse I:
A                           
What’s this walking through my door
G#/E
I know I’ve seen the look before
A
Sometimes on faces on the street
G#/E                    
And sometimes at the mirror looking back at me
A
You can’t fix the pain with money
E
You cant’t rush a weary soul
D
You can’t sweep it under the rug now honey
B
But it take not a lot to know

Chorus

Verse II :
A
Well it may not be over my morning
G#/E
But Rome wasn’t build in a day
A
You can name that thing a thousand times
E
It won’t make it go away
A
Let me put my arms around you
E
And hold you while you weep
D
We ‘ve been talking and you know what, I’m sick of this talk
B
And it’s nothing that won’t keep

Chorus:
Chorus freely again but modulates a whole tone up. 

F#              B    C#
Takes a little time sometime
C#                      F#
to get the....


You can’t fix the pain with money
You cant’t rush a weary soul
You can’t sweep it under the rug now honey
But it take not a lot to know

Chorus ad lib
