Time Stops

"Time Stops"

a distant bell that won't stop ringing
the long night won't defeat my soul
every day I hear sweet hearts singing
hold on 'til I reach that goal

are the precepts by which I stand
set in stone, solid rock, or just sand?

there is more to learn than I aim for
so much under the sun I should play for
before I'm taken in
before I'm taken in

time stops when you find that feeling
you're right back where it once begun
watching the distances disappearing
ice blocks in the mid-day sun
need a new line
a different plan
got the whole of the day in my hands

there is more to learn than I aim for
so much under the sun I should play for
there is more to learn
(is there more to learn?)
than I've aimed for
(is there more to learn?)
so much under the sun
(is there more to learn?)
I should claim for
(is there more to learn?)
before I'm taken in
before I'm taken in
before I'm taken in
before you take me

before I'm taken in
before you take me
before you take me in
before you take me
