Bonnie Raitt - Takin' My Time Lyrics




I'm takin' my time
So please don't rush me.
Tryin' to sort out some things I didn't know existed.
I've been here before,
I know where the traps lie.
You only take what's there 'cause the rest doesn't matter.

Well I'm tired of talk,
So please don't push me.
You know I want the same kinda things that you do.
You're wasting your time,
The way you come to me.
Slow down your rhymes and try to reason

Can't make things move any faster,
By second wishing them to death.
You seem to be living on the level.
It's decent enough,
You got what you wanted.
So why do you tell me, that I'm on the wrong track?
I'm doin' the best I can do.

I try to out guess
The situation
That I know your not even fully aware of.
And I want you to know,
If it keeps on this way,
Can't keep on letting you bring me down.
Can't keep on letting you bring me down.

Bonnie Raitt Takin' My Time Comments
  1. Mary Ellen Zander

    My first introduction to Bonnie was this song and album...1973. Great album! Wish I could find it again.

  2. Harley Springer

    Back in 1973 this song began my life-long infatuation with Bonnie and her talents. I saw her in concert just once - with Eric Clapton in Montreal. Their shared final set was the musical experience of a lifetime.

    Girls, you've been in love too long
    (You're a fool for your baby)
    Don't you know, girls
    You've been in love too long
    (You're a fool for your baby)
    When just his smile takes all your pain away
    And you find yourself believing whatever he may say
    Now when he keeps you cryin'
    But your heart tells you, Girl, keep right on tryin'
    Girls, you've been in love too long
    (You're a fool for your baby)
    Don't you know, girls? You've been in love too long
    (You're a fool for your baby)
    When you accept his wrongs just to share his kiss
    And even though lonely nights are filled with happiness
    Now girl, you're in trouble; you know your heart is seein' double
    When your head tells you to run
    But your heart says he's your only one
    Girls, you've been in love too long
    You're a fool for your baby)
    (Girl, you've been in love too long)
    You're a fool
    'Cause when a week of loneliness
    Can be erased with just one sweet caress
    Girls, you've been in love too long
    (You're a fool for your baby)
    I say girls, oh yeah, you're a fool
    When his wrong looks right 'cause he always treats you bad
    When you find little excuses for all the sadness & abuses
    Don't you know, girls, you're in love
    You're just a fool for your baby
    Girls, you've been in love too long
    You're just a fool
