If You Give Me A Little Time

Could it be that you're faster
at forgetting a love that's gone?
Or is it that I'm slower
and try to linger on?
I suppose things would be different
if I were in my prime ---
But, I think that I can make it
if you give me a little time.

Forgetting would be easier
if friends just wouldn't try
To convince me things are better
now that you've said good-bye.
I know they want to help me
with this mountain I must climb ---
But they don't know I'll be all right
if you give me a little time.

If you give me a little time
I'll forget the love we knew.
And with each day that passes
I'll grow closer to forgetting you.
I'll look across my shoulder
and leave you there behind.
Yes, I think I will get over you
if you give me a little time.
