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
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Experience slips away...
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 can wait until the tide comes around
Make each impression a little bit stronger
Freeze this motion a little bit longer
The innocence slips away...
Summer's going fast, nights growing colder
Children growing up -- old friends growing colder
Experience slips away...
