"Take the Time" as written by and Michael/english English....
Each of us has come here
With a story of our own
But we wait in restless silence
So no one ever knows
There is one who sits in loneliness
On the edge of despair
While another person longs to love
With so much life to share

Someone cannot feel the warmth of love
Through a wall that's built with time
Being burned so often
Makes the heart as cold as ice
There's somebody hurting
From a wound that doesn't heal
And the touch of human hands
Could bring a comfort that is real

Which one are you
Which one are you near
Can you reach across the emptiness
Can you touch the heart of someone here

[Chorus]
Take the time
To love somebody
Oh take the time
To show someone you care
Will you have another chance to be
The answer to a prayer
Take the time

We come from different places
And the pain has different names
With different circumstances
But the feelings are the same
If we let down our defenses
And we tear down all the walls
In the center of our souls we find
No differences at all

Which one are you
Which one are you near
Can you reach across the emptiness
Can you touch the heart of someone here

Take the time
To love somebody
Oh take the time
To show someone you care
Will you have another chance to be
The answer to a prayer
Take the time

There's a time when only you will know
When the Spirit speaks within your soul
Dare to reach beyond yourself
And let love go

Take the time
To love somebody
Come on and take the time
To show someone you care
Will you have another chance to be
