"More Time" as written by and William Rinehart Nathanial Rinehart....
I promised you the world again
Everything within my hands
All the riches one could dream
They will come from me

I hoped that you could understand
That this is not what I had planned
Please don't worry now
It will turn around

'Cause I need more time
Just a few more months and we'll be fine
So say what's on your mind
'Cause I can't figure out just what's inside

I hoped that you could understand
That this is not what I had planned
Please don't worry now
It will turn around

'Cause I need more time
Just a few more months and we'll be fine
So say what's on your mind
'Cause I can't figure out just what's inside
So say alright
'Cause I know we can make it if we try
'Cause I need more time
Just a few more months and we'll be fine

We're off to new lands
So hold on to my hands
It's gonna be alright
It's a whole lot brighter
So stand by the fire
It's gonna be alright
Yeah, the road gets harder
But it's not much farther
It's gonna be alright
You know that it ain't easy
Please believe me
It's gonna be alright

Please don't worry now
Please don't worry now
Please don't worry now

'Cause it will turn around

'Cause I need more time
Just a few more months and we'll be fine
So say what's on your mind
'Cause I can't figure out just what's inside
So say alright
'Cause I know we can make it if we try
'Cause I need more time
Just a few more months and we'll be fine

    General CommentThis song has great meaning in my life right. To me, It's about a relationship. Telling the other person not to worry about things, in time it will get better. I am going through something similar with the love of my life. She believes need time to grow but to do it separated. It's very hard but I am trying my best to do it for her. I just wish it was an easy road, but it's not.

    General CommentThis song seems to be about promising the world to someone in the beginning. But there is something happening in the relationship between these two people and they can't be together at the moment but he wants to let her know that with time everything will turn out right. He needs for her to speak her mind/heart to help him understand. He knows that when she comes out and tells him what is on her mind or in her heart, that they will be able to work things out and be together again. This is how it seems to me. I might be completely wrong, and if I am. I'm sorry.

    General CommentA quote from Bear Rinehart, singer and songwriter from NEEDTOBREATHE:

    ''More Time' is about the patience it takes to be in the music industry, both for us and for our families. We've been gone constantly since we started the band six years ago. You keep telling yourself that everything will work out in just a couple more months. . .and then those months turn into years. As much as this song speaks to that frustration, it's also a song about devotion. This is really about knowing you're doing what you're supposed to be doing and having the patience to see it through to the end.'

    So I guess that could also apply to a relationship...frustration...yet also devotion. :)

    General CommentI think this song is all from the guy's point of view. It seems that he has promised her everything she would ever want (normal love-bird talk), and now he is experiencing second thoughts about this relationship or is scared of what he has fallen into, and just needs more time to figure out if this relationship is what he wants or not. pretty self-explanatory

    General Commenti'm pretty sure that Bear wrote this about his wife, if i remember correctly. This is just such an amazing song and i love the whole thing! I think that the song is talking about how the relationship is rocky now, and it'll get harder, but if we stay together we can make it though together. Just an amazing song from an amazing band

    General CommentI thought I remembered them saying (during a performance) that this song was about their family and hoping they would understand that the band would need more time to develop further.
    It definitely seems like it could be applicable to many things though!

    General CommentTo me this songs is all about a relationship that works on paper but due to circumstances it isn't working. It is pretty much what is going on in my life at the moment. I met this amazing girl at school right before I left for an internship with Disney. It might have worked when I got back but when I did she was leaving for her internship with Disney a week later. Now she is coming back in a week and 4 days later I am moving back to Florida for a job with Disney. She may move down there once she finishes school and if so, as the song says "Just a few more months and we'll be fine." I randomly heard this song on the radio and instantly thought of her. It's an amazing song and the band is really starting to grow on me.

    General CommentI have mixed feelings of what I think this song is actually about...but I know in many ways I can apply it to my life right now and I ABSOLUTELY adore it. Definitely one of my all-time favourites, I found it at just the perfect time for me...it seems to be about the timing of everything being wrong- maybe the guy just needs more time to think about their developing relationship and realise what he really wants from it- but he is saying that they will work through any difficulties together even though it may be hard at first. These difficulties could be anything really though...maybe they are going their separate ways for a while and don't know if their relationship will survive the change. Maybe they have financial problems? However, despite the sad undertones there is lots of hope in this song I think! It's saying that don't worry...everything will work out eventually somehow, even if you can't see how. Things will turn around. Yeah there will be change involved, and hard times, and a whole load of confusion...but it's got to get better eventually so as long as they believe that then there should be a happy ending :)
