Forget him

Dont Blink


I turned on the evening news
Saw a old man being interviewed
Turning a hundred and two today
Asked him what’s the secret to life
He looked up from his old pipe
Laughed and said “All I can say is.”

Don’t blink
Just like that you’re six years old and you take a nap and you
Wake up and you’re twenty-five and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don’t blink
You just might miss your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your “better half”
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you’re praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think
So don’t blink

I was glued to my tv when it looked like he looked at me and said
“Best start putting first things first.”
Cause when your hourglass runs out of sand
You can’t flip it over and start again
Take every breathe God gives you for what it’s worth

Don’t Blink
Just like that you’re six years old and you take a nap and you
Wake up and you’re twenty-five and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don’t blink
You just might miss your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your “better half”
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you’re praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think
So don’t blink

So I’ve been tryin’ ta slow it down
I’ve been tryin’ ta take it in
In this here today, gone tomorrow world we’re livin’ in

Don’t blink
Just like that you’re six years old and you take a nap and you
Wake up and you’re twenty-five and your high school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don’t blink
You just might miss your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your “better half”
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you’re praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster then you think
So Don’t blink

Naw, don’t blink, don’t blink
Life Goes Faster Than You Think
Don’t Blink…

A true friend

知己良朋 Chinese version translated by nqph2004

We met upon the internet,
網中低頭見,
My heart you did not have yet.
兩心不曾牽;
I sit and wait each day,
每天坐與等,
for the song my heart will soon play.
心曲終譜成。
Of laughter, love and tears,
悲歡友情在,
You have washed away all my fears.
心魔洗得快;
To be my friend and see so deep,
良朋窺心透,
I now know why I don’t get much sleep.
短睡也足夠。
I have waited through all these years,
等待經有年,
To find something to hold so dear.
寶貴勝金錢;
And now I know I’ll never be Blue,
不再有煩憂,
For I have found a true friend in you.
真情永不休。
