Lyrics
Well, well
Well, well, well, well, well

Oh, let me tell you
Time is the one thing everybody feels
It just expires with no regards to years
They say time can bring about a change (listen)
But I ain't see a doggone thing
But they say

(Time)
That's what they tell me
(It takes time)
Oh, every day they tell me, y'all
I keep hearing them saying
(It takes time)

"It's in the answer," that's what people say
But it looks like peace is getting further away
Together we stand, and divided we fall
But we are still divided by that unseen wall
But they say

[Hook]
(Time)
That's what they tell me
(It takes time)
Ever since I was a little bitty boy, they say it
(Time)
That's what they tell me
(It takes time)
Everyday I hear the same, the same old thing

They say time
They say time
They say time
They say time
But I wanna know, y'all
(How much time does it really take
Before this world of ours is in a better shape?)
Somebody tell me

Well, well, well
The day when time brings on that blessed change
On, that day the whole world will sing
Time will have washed all our fears away
And peace will have brought us a brand new day

(Time)
But it takes time
That's what they tell me
(It takes time)
Every day, I keep hearing them telling me that
(Time)
That's what they tell me
(It takes time)
Oh, Lord I wanna know, now
