It takes time

[Verse 1]
Like a little child
I broke the glass
Not trusted, that is to say
And I cut myself on it [the glass]
Now I lay awake at night
And I think it over
The guilt heavy like lead
I'd sure have done it differently
 
[Bridge]
But it is like it is
Time doesn't run backwards
And I run and I run and I run from it
So far as my feet take me
 
[Chorus]
It takes time
To get up without falling down
It takes time
To face forward and look back
It takes even
To be yourself without losing yourself
So much time
So much time
 
[Post-Chorus]
Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo
Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo
Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo
 
Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo
Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo
Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo
 
[Verse 2]
I wasn't honest with you
One too many white lies
You warned me so often
And I did it anyway
That's why I ran away
But I didn't know where I should go
'Cause my goal
Was always only you
 
[Bridge]
But it is like it is
Time doesn't run backwards
And I run and I run and I run from it
So far as my feet take me
 
[Chorus]
It takes time
To get up without falling down
It takes time
To face forward and look back
It takes even
To be yourself without losing yourself
So much time
So much time
 
[Post-Chorus]
Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo
Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo
Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo
 
Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo
Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo
Ooo-ooo, ooo-ooo
 
[Chorus]
It takes time
To get up without falling down
It takes time
To face forward and look back
It takes even
To be yourself without losing yourself
So much time
So much time
 
Enjoy! God be with you!

"Nicht getraut, es zu sagen" means " Ich habe mich nicht getraut, es jemandem zu sagen" I was afraid to tell someone
