I don't want to let my life fly by
Do you ever stop, stop to wonder why?

And time flies by
When everything is ok
It just turns out that life ain't that way
Big decisions overwhelm me and I know
nothing's free

When I don't think of, think about much
People die and we don't know why
I could use some understanding
Human contact, sign that contract

I don't want to let my life fly by
Did you ever stop to wonder why-ever stop to
wonder, wonder why?

And time stands still when no one understands you
When you don't quite understand yourself
But just know this that God is faithful
Even if you don't have faith yourself

There's nothing quite like being sure of
What's inside your heart
It's mostly simple but not so easy
To know just where to start

Today didn't have to be this way
Tomorrow is another day
Another chance to make things right
A chance to make sense of last night

A chance to fully live your life
I don't want to, I don't want to, you don't want to

    General CommentI can really relate to this song. It's talking about how time flies by when ur happy but when your confused it seems to stand still. It's also saying to make the most of your life and not let it fly by.
    "And time stands still when no one understands you
    When you don't quite understand yourself
    But just know this that God is faithful
    Even if you don't have faith yourself"...I really like this quote because it helped me when I felt alone.

    General CommentThis song brings back a FANTASTIC memory... I had an assignment to do for English in grade 10 and we needed to find a poem and read a book on the same theme, my theme was LIFE... just life. I decided to put this song in as my poem and because of that I scored an A, the highest mark that that teacher has ever given anyone.
