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 wont last.
Do you run through each day on the fly? 
When asked how you're doing do you just say fine? 
Do you really mean your reply? When the day is done do you lie in your bed
with so many thoughts running through your head? 
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 hurry you don't see their sorrow? 
Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die? 
Cause you never had time to just call and say hi. 
You'd better slow down. 
Don't dance too fast. 
Time is short 
the music won't last. 
When you run so fast to get somewhere 
do you miss half the fun of getting there? 
When you worry and rush through the day,
life's an unopened gift just thrown away. 
Life is not a race,  
Take everything slower
hear the music 
before the song is over.
