  • (Hold it now)
    (Wait a minute)
    (Come on! whew)
    Just let me catch my breath
    I've heard the promises
    I've seen the mistakes
    I've had my fair share of tough breaks
    I need a new voice, a new law, a new way
    Take the time, reevaluate
    It's time to pick up the pieces
    Go back to square one
    I think it's time for a change

    There is something that I feel
    To be something that is real
    I feel the heat within my mind
    And craft new changes with my eyes
    Giving freely wandering promises
    A place with decisions I'll fashion
    I won't waste another breath

    You can feel the waves coming on
    (It's time to take the time)
    Let them destroy you or carry you on
    (It's time to take the time)
    You're fighting the weight of the world
    But no one can save you this time
    Close your eyes
    You can find all you need in your mind

    The unbroken spirit obscured and disquiet
    Finds clearness this trial demands
    And at the end of this day sighs an anxious relief
    For the fortune lies still in his hands
    If there's a pensive fear, a wasted year
    A man must learn to cope
    If his obsession's real
    Suppression that he feels must turn to hope

    Life is no more assuring than love
    (It's time to take the time)
    There are no answers from voices above
    (It's time to take the time)
    You're fighting the weight of the world
    And no one can save you this time
    Close your eyes
    You can find all you need in your mind

    I close my eyes
    And feel the water rise around me
    Drown the beat of time
    Let my senses fall away
    I can see much clearer now I'm blind

    (Ora che ho perso la vista)
    (Ci vedo di piu)

    You can feel the waves coming on
    (It's time to take the time)
    Let them destroy you or carry you on
    (It's time to take the time)
    You're fighting the weight of the world
    But no one can save you this time
    Close your eyes
    You can find all you need in your mind

    Find all you need in your mind
    If you take the time
    Find all you need in your mind
    If you take the time
