Getting duration of execution in bash


I need to get duration of execution of command or few semi separated commands. I tried to use "time" command. But it didn't give me elapsed time for few semi separated commands, only duration of first command. How can i get it?

I tried to do this: time sleep 10; sleep 10.

I got this:
real 0m10.005s
user 0m0.000s
sys 0m0.004s

And i want to get something like this:
real 0m20.005s
user 0m0.000s
sys 0m0.004s
