Slow Down ...

The Music Won't Last

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round, 
or listened to the rain slapping on the ground? 

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight 
or gazed at the sun into the fading night? 

You better slow down; 
don't dance so fast, 
time is short, 
the music won't last. 

Do you run through each day on the fly? 
When you ask "How are you?" 
do you hear the reply? 

When the day is done, 
do you lie in your bed with the next hundred 
chores running through your head? 

You'd better slow down; 
don't dance so fast; time is short 
- the music won't last. 

Ever told your child we'll do it tomorrow 
and in your haste, 
not see his or her sorrow? 

Ever lost touch, 
let a good friendship die 
'cause you never had time to call and say hi? 

When you run so fast to get somewhere, 
you miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day, 
it is like an unopened gift....thrown away. 

You'd better slow down; 
don't dance so fast; 
time is short - 
the music won't last.
