You better slow down... don't dance so fast

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 seen his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,
Let the good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say hi.

You better slow down.
Don't dance so fast
Time is short.
The music won't last.


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.

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower.
Hear the music.
Before the song is over.

Dream as if you'll live forever...live as if you'll die today...
