Took A While To See

Look at me, look how things have changed
Don’t know how life got so rearranged
Didn't see it coming, took a while to see

(chorus)
Know it was hard, times were tough
We had it all and thought it was enough
Our love ran so deep
It took a while, for us to see
We were drifting apart trying to be free..
And it took a while to see

Took a while to find that peace we searched for
But what we made we both adore
Think we can agree, it’s as it should be

(chorus)
Know it was hard, times were tough
We had it all and thought it was enough
Our love ran so deep
It took a while, for us to see
We were drifting apart trying to be free..
And it took a while to see

I know this life’s what it’s supposed to be
It’s sometimes not easy to see
The way to be free

(chorus)
Know it was hard, times were tough
We had it all and thought it was enough
Our love ran so deep
It took a while, for us to see
We were drifting apart trying to be free..
And it took a while to see
Oh, it took a while to see
Umm..
