Blink

Submitted By: Red Princess Designs

Teach me to number my days
And count every moment
before it slips away
taking all the colors
before they fade to gray
I don't want to miss
even just a second
more of this

It happens in a blink
It happens in a flash
It happens in the time it took to look back
I try to hold on tight, but there's no stopping time
What is it I've done with my life
It happens in a blink
It happens in a blink

When it's all said and done
No one remembers how far we have run
The only thing that matters is how we have loved
I don't want to miss even just a second more of this

It happens in a blink
It happens in a flash
It happens in the time it took to look back
I try to hold on tight, but there's no stoping time
What is it I've done with my life
It happens in a blink

Slow down, slow down
Before today becomes a yesterday
Slow down, slow down
Before you turn around and it's too late

It happens in a blink
It happens in a flash
It happens in a time it took to look back
I try to hold on tight
but there's no stopping time
What is it I've done with my life
It happens in a blink
