A Minute

Places to go, people to meet:

Don’t have time to just take a seat

And take it all in for a minute.

 

I wish I could stop, I wish I could chat

Sit for a while and do all of that

And take it all in for a minute.

 

Yet, if I stop, that means I’ll think

Which has taken souls up to the brink –

They took it all in for a minute.

 

Jump from the rooftops, jump from a cliff:

If you can survive that, and only if,

You can take it all in for a minute.

 

Blue sky before me, land at my back –

How did my life get so off track?

I must take it all in for a minute.

 

The waves billow and billow, I cry and I cry

My heart is heavy, my head not held high.

This is the minute.
