Lyrics

Sit down, take a deep breath.
Forget about climbing your hill.
Close your eyes let the world hurry by,
see the wisdom of standing still.

Switch off, don't say a word.
Take the chance to relax if you will.
Enjoy the sunset or gaze at the stars,
see the wisdom of standing still.

Twenty four hours a whirlwind surrounds you,
time is the foe of all men.
How can you see all the fine things around you?
Slow down, make space again.

So come in and sit by the fire,
and pass me your glass to refill.
The rat-race can spare you an hour or so,
see the wisdom of standing still.

Time is for wasting , losing and making,
time is for sharing with friends.
Those who adore you will always implore you
to slow down and make space again.

So come home with me
and pass me your glass to refill.
Bask in the silence and revel in peace,
see the wisdom of standing still.
