I’d like to stop the world from turning,
I’d like to pause it with my prayer;
I’d like to turn the clocks to zero,
Do all I can to keep you here;
Silence the marching of the seconds,
That sounds relentless in my ears.
For time is given,
And time is taken away;
The least that we can do
Is make the most of every day.
And we are given
And we are taken away;
The best that we can do
Is give ourselves away.
What good is time if we don’t use it
To find the path within the pain?
Whoever keeps their life will lose it,
Whoever gives their life will gain.
Not just a moment but forever,
This love is stronger than the grave.
