Future Islands - Balance

Album: "On The Water" (2011)

You can clean around the wound
But if you want it to heal
It just takes time

And you can call up to the moon
But if you want something to change
You've gotta change your life
And take your time

It just takes time
It just takes time
It just takes time
Hard work and your time

The sun will leave the room
Will leave you to the night
And that's alright

Because before the morning comes
There's a certain calm
And then there's light
It just takes time

It just takes time
A little trust and your time
You can change your life
It just takes time
A little trust and your time

And I can sit and talk
Because I was just like you
So arrogant and brave
Impetuous and blue

But trust me as a friend
And I'll do all that I can do
And I'd do anything for you
Because I want to see you through

It just takes time
Hard work and your time
You can change your life

It just takes time
A little trust your time
A little trust and your time...
