Love Takes Time Lyrics by Mariah Carey


Mariah Carey Lyrics

Love Takes Time Lyrics
I had it all
But I let it slip away
Couldn't see that
I treated you wrong
Now I wander around
Feeling down and cold
Trying to believe
That you're gone

[Chorus:]
Love takes time
To heal when you're
Hurting so much
Couldn't see that I was blind
To let you go
I can't escape the pain
Inside

Love takes time
I don't wanna be here alone
Losing my mind
From this hollow in my heart
Suddenly I'm so incomplete
Lord I'm needing you now
Tell me how to
Stop the rain
Tears are falling down endlessly

[Chorus:]
Love takes time
To heal when you're
Hurting so much
Couldn't see that I was blind
To let you go
I can't escape the pain
Inside


You might say that it's over
You might say that you don't care
You might say you don't miss me
You don't need me
But I know that you do
And I feel that you do
Inside

[Chorus:]
Love takes time
To heal when you're
Hurting so much
Couldn't see that I was blind
To let you go
I can't escape the pain
Inside
