As I travel down the road and search the empty sky
Waiting for the moment when my eyes will see
Many are the memories the mysteries of time
How they dance around and whisper endlessly

Yes I've traveled down this road before
Where so many men have come and gone
But you know it takes time
(True love takes time)
You know that true love takes time
(True love takes time)
And it's so very hard to find
(True love takes time)
You know that love takes time

It seemed impossible that I could care again
So it seemed I had forgotten how to give
What is this miracle that brings me back my dreams
All at once I can remember how to live

Yes I've traveled down this road before
Where so many men have come and gone
But you know it takes time
(True love takes time)
You know that true love takes time
(True love takes time)
And it's so very hard to find
(True love takes time)
You know that true love takes time

I have been too much alone for oh so many years
Looking for someone to sing with me
Sweet harmony

My heart is open now and tender to the touch
But there is love enough to heal me in your hands
I'll give you all my nights
All my sun and rainy days
I'll give you all the time it takes to understand

We've traveled down this road before
Where so many fools have come and gone
But you know it takes time
(True love takes time)
You know that true love takes time
(True love takes time)
And it's so very hard to find
(True love takes time)
You know that true love takes time

(True love takes time)
(True love takes time)
(True love takes time)
