(Original) Give It Time

Hey, it's okay to cry,

You're not wasting your time,

Seems the stars just weren't aligned,

 

So go on lift your head,

Give it another try, 

Just put your hand in mine and I'll help you through, 

give it time. 

 

 

When you're all alone and losing faith,  

When you're in the dark  feeling afraid,

I know it seems like time stands still,

but you'll end up okay

 

I know that there's not much I can do, 

Stuck behind a screen, so far from you, 

But there's a light inside your soul,

And I hope you let it glow.

 

 

Just take a breath,

let it all go,  

and leave the past behind --

 

 Let's move ahead,

towards tomorrow,

These wounds will heal with time.  

 

 

Hey, it's okay to cry,

You didn't waste your time,

It seems the stars just weren't aligned,

 

So go on lift your head,

Give it another try, 

Just put your hand in mine and 

I'll help you through, 

give it time.

 

Remember how to smile, 

Someday you'll sort it out, 

Though it may take a little while, 

 

Once the battle ends,

I swear the sun will shine,

Keep aiming for your dreams,

Don't give up the fight. 

 

 

When you feel like you can't catch a break,

Wondering how much more you can take,

Don't try to bear it on your own,

You don't have to be alone. 

 

And I know this song's a bit cliche, 

But you need to hear it anyway,

You're full of promise, don't you know?

I hope you don't let go. 

 

Take a step back, 

gather your thoughts,

and cultivate your plans. 

 

It's a New Year,

A brand new start, 

You've gotta take this chance! 

 

Once upon a time I felt there wasn't a point,

But when I thought my life was through, 

You pulled me out of the dark, that claimed my heart,

I hope you know I'm here for you, too. 

 

 

So, one step at a time,

Let's make peace with our past, 

so we can leave it far behind,

You'll have scars from those wounds,

by them you're not defined, 

Please put your hand in mine and I'll help you through, 

give it time.  

 

Remember how to laugh ,

Someday you'll sort it out, 

And then those scars won't hurt so bad,

 

When you learn to forgive, 

Either yourself or them,

The happiness will come and you'll finally 'live', 

 

You're the reason that I sing,  

Because of you, I'm still fighting. 

Honestly, you made year,

Because of you, I'll persevere. 

 

You're not alone, I'm always here.  

 

End Choir: 

 

Hey, it's okay to cry,

You're not wasting your time,

Seems the stars just weren't aligned,

 

So go on lift your head,

Give it another try, 

Just put your hand in mine and I'll help you through, 

give it time. 

 

Remember how to smile, 

Someday you'll sort it out, 

Though it may take a little while, 

 

When you learn to forgive, 

Either yourself or them,

The happiness will come and you'll finally 'live',
