It's time to lay down,
And say goodnight,
Troubles will come, but only to fright,
So just relax, Calm down,
BREATHE...
Do you not see?
God is near.
He helps the blind man,
He reads to make him understand,
But the man is still confused and old.
So just relax, Calm down,
BREATHE...
Do you not hear?
God is near.
He helps the deaf man,
They do not talk, but they connect,
The deaf man has a friend.
So just relax, Calm down,
BREATHE...
Can you not touch?
God is near.
He helps the man who cannot feel.
As he describes the sense of touch,
The man will wiggle his fingertips.
He wants to feel a flower petal,
Or maybe the cool water in a shower,
But it will have to do,
Words are beautiful too...
So just relax, Calm down,
BREATHE...
Can you not smell?
God is near.
He helps the man who longs to inhale,
The sweet smell of grass,
Lingering in the air,
God keeps him company,
Throughout the night.
So just relax, Calm down,
BREATHE...
Can you not taste,
The words on your lips,
As they fall into play?
God is near.
He helps the man who cannot taste,
When he desires to savor his food,
God keeps him company,
Throughout the year,
So just relax, Calm down,
BREATHE...
Can't you tell?
God has helped these people, yes?
But man is not thankful,
Man is greedy.
The blind man can still hear.
The deaf man can still see.
So why would God keep us company?
So just relax, Calm down,
BREATHE...
Trouble will come to those who fear,
Just remember, God is near.
So just relax, Calm down,
BREATHE...
The man who cannot smell,
Laid in bed that night,
He said to himself,
"What a fool am I,"
"I can't believe God took the time,"
"To show me what was truly mine."
"Why must I smell?"
"I do not need to,"
"I appreactite life."
And as the man fell into a long sleep,
He rose to heaven, Can't you see?
And God said to him,
"Now, just relax. Calm down,"
"BREATHE..."
"Your time has come,"
"Can't you see?"
The man was in tears,
And he laid at God's feet,
He spoke out,
"Let me show you,".
"I want to correct myself."
God respected his wish,
And the man woke up,
What was that? It smelled like...
Wait. He could smell!
And he looked up at the night time sky,
He said aloud "Thank you God!".
For the first time in awhile,
The man smiled.
The words ran through his head,
The words God had spoke to him,
"Now, just relax, calm down,
BREATHE..."
And the man ran,
He felt the air run through his mouth,
And he laid down to his death.
But it wasn't sad,
He lived the way he'd wanted to.
