Slow Dance

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 sorrow
Ever lost touch
Let a good friendship die
'Cause you never had time
?To call and say Hi

You'd 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
