Lyrics
I was looking out the window just this morning.
Wasn't finding inspiration in my bed.
I was wondering if all this was a warning,
'Cause I'd rather waste the day than work instead.

It's been quite a while since I could feel my heart beat.
I appreciate you offering me yours,
But I got to use my own and let it guide me.
It's the only thing to get me home for sure.

Let's hear some good news for the lady.
She's coming out from far behind
And if she seems a little slow,
It only goes to show
That everything will grow in its own time

Well I haven't really lost my sense of humor;
(say) it all depends on where you're coming from.
But I would tend to give some credence to the rumor
That this bird in flight just might be on the run.

Let's hear some good news for the lady.
She's coming out from far behind.
So if she seems a little slow,
It only goes to show
That everything will grow in its own time

I sort of hope you'll understand (that I've been there before)
That I can't always join the band you want
And if I hide behind the words I'm saying,
Don't let it fool you; you're not comin' through.

I need some good news for my lady.
She's coming up and wants to shine.
So if she needs the time to pause,
Just give her room because
She'll be comin' round the mountain in her time.
(You know) everything will grow in its own time.
