Let it Slow

By
Have you ever listened
To rain patter against cement?
Or watched lightning glisten
As it hit Earth's crest?

Haven't you ever seen a merry-go-round
Turn with every bit of sound?
Or tried to listen to a butterfly's flutter
Cutting the wind like a knife on butter?

Life's a show
Put on your best
There's no rehersal
It's all a test

To pass the level
Slow it down
Do your best
To look around

Has anyone ever lied to you
Or stabbed your back with a tack?
Or have you let a good friendship die
Because you were too busy to call back?

Ever said "No" to someone
And never turn around
To see their eyes
Drift to the ground?

Life's a show
Put on your best
There's no rehersal
It's all a test

To pass the level
Slow it down
Do your best
To look around

For life's too short
Time is small
Observe the mosat
We have it all

It's in our hands
We can let it show
Life's on broadway
Let it slow
