Peter Collins - Time Stand Still lyrics

[Verse 1: Geddy Lee] I turn my back to the wind To catch my breath before I start off again Driven on without a moment to spend To pa** 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 [Chorus 1: Geddy Lee (and Aimee Mann)] (Time stand still) I'm not looking back, but I want to look around me now (Time stand still) See more of the people and the places that surround me now Time stand still Freeze this moment a little bit longer Make each sensation a little bit stronger Experience slips away Experience slips away Time stand still [Verse 2: Lee] 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 [Chorus 2: Lee and Mann] (Time stand still) I'm not looking back, but I want to look around me now (Time stand still) 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 Make each impression a little bit stronger Freeze this motion a little bit longer The innocence slips away The innocence slips away Time stand still Time stand still [Instrumental Break with vocalizations by Aimee Mann] [Bridge: Lee and Mann] 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 Time stand still [Outro: Lee] Summer's going fast, nights growing colder Children growing up, old friends growing older Freeze this moment a little bit longer Make each sensation a little bit stronger [Outro: Lee and Mann] Experience slips away Experience slips away... The innocence slips away
