Rush Time Stand Still Lyrics

I turn my back to the wind to catch my breath
Before I start off again
Driven on without a moment to spend
To pass an evening with a drink and a friend

I let my skin get too thin, I’d like to pause
No matter what I pretend
Like some pilgrim who learns to transcend
Learns to live as if each step was the end

Time stand still
I’m not looking back but I want to look around me now
See more of the people and the places that surround me now

Time stand still

Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Experience slips away
Experience slips away

Time stand still

I turn my face to the sun
Close my eyes
Let my defences down
All those wounds that I can’t get unwound

I let my past go too fast, no time to pause
If I could slow it all down
Like some captain, whose ship runs aground
I could wait until the tide comes around

Time stand still
I’m not looking back but I want to look around me now
Time stand still
See more of the people and the places that surround me now

Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Make each impression a little bit stronger
Freeze this motion a little bit longer
The innocence slips away
The innocence slips away

Time stand still
Time stand still

I’m not looking back but I want to look around me now
See more of the people and the places that surround me now
Time stand still

Summer’s going fast, nights growing colder
Children growing up, old friends growing older
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger

Experience slips away
Experience slips away
The innocence slips away
