It's Just a Matter of Time
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 1-2014

If they had asked me, the last time they saw me
They might have known, just which way I was bound
In their struggle, to love and protect me
They had to let me get lost, to be found

---Chhorus/Refrain 1---
If I perceive it, the way that I believe it
Then the reason may never cross my mind
But if I fake it, along the way I'll make it
It's just a matter of time
If I watch, nothing much ever happens
Time passes slowly, the more that I stare
In the end though, the pot always boils
Life is the menu and love is the fare

--Chorus/Refrain 2--
So when the reason agrees with my believing
Then my life and my story will align
I'll reclaim my spirit, my heart can engineer it
It's just a matter of time

-Solo (2nd Half chorus) Break-

Love ones, are coming and they're going
And each heart deserves a second chance
In time, wisdom's gained from knowing
Little thing we barely understand

--Repeat Chorus/Refrain #2--
