It takes time, to heal the wound I've
Made along the way
If I'm blind, open my eyes, 'cause
I need to see again

If I can feel again
Will you tell me now or wait till I'm broken
Down again
Save me now, I'm broken

If I bleed, my lies won't fill the
Emptiness inside
I just need, for something real to
Open up my mind

[Chorus: x2]

Breaking down, I'm breaking down
It takes time


It takes time
Breaking down I'm breaking down
If I can feel again

    General CommentI can not believe that no one has added a comment to this GREAT Sevendust song. To me, I think that this song is about loss or making a dreadful mistake and hoping to turn back the clock.

    General CommentI think Maxfior is right for the most part but it's definetly about a relationship that got fucked up and the guy is hurt.

    General Commentone of my favorite sevendust songs. i think it's about a conflict within and you just can't take it anymore.

    General CommentI think this is about meeting someone new after going through a bad relationship. The person isn't healed yet but knows it takes time.
    "if i can feel again will you tell me now or wait til i'm broken down again" He is numb and is asking about the other person's feelings and intentions. "save me down i'm broken"
    Love this song.

    General Commenti think this is the best song off of seasons. i think tastysalmon is right. the guy doesnt even want to try to have another relationship but he hopes he can heal in time and move on and maybe try again with someone else.
