I know its not your fault, but I'm a locked door
And inside I'm a mess by someone before
And I wish that I, I could find a key
To unlock all the things that you want us to be

Let me open up and start again,
But there's a safe around my heart
I don't know how to let you in,
And that's what keeps us apart

And that's why I need time.
I said I need you,
I need you to understand, you, you, you
I need you to understand, you, you, you

Call up the locksmith,
Tell him we need him quick
We've got a million keys,
None of them seem to fit

While you're on the phone,
Call up the clocksmith,
Cuz I could use some time,
Even the slightest bit

Let me open up and start again,
And break this safe around my heart
I don't know how to let you in,
And that's what keeps us apart

And that's why I need time
I said I need you
I need you to understand, you, you, you
I need you to understand, you, you, you

I'm thinking now's the time,
Maybe its time to go, if I gave you my heart, be gentle,
I'm tired of laying low, lets give the world a show
And when you know, you know,

And when you know, you know, you know
And when you know, you know, you know, you know
And that's why I need time
I said I need you,

I need you to understand, you, you, you
I need you to understand, you, you, you
I need you to understand
I need you to understand

I need you to understand
I need you to understand
I need you
I need you

I need you
I need you, you, you
