"Stop The Time" as written by and Kurt Nilsen....
If I could stop the time when I needed a break
Get off the train and let it go its way
I wouldn't have known how to thank you

I've got a girl I love, three kids and a house
Bills to my neck, working hours at night
I've got friends I never get to see no more
A house to paint, a gate and a door
Flowers to grow, a road to clean
A lawn to cut, it's pretty steep
I can't go nowhere without my job
My telephone's ringing all day long

And if I could stop the time when I needed a break
Get off the train and let it go its way
I wouldn't know how to thank you
If I could stop the time, let it all fly away
Take a long, deep breath and stay for a day
I wouldn't know what to say
But maybe I wouldn't feel this way

Became a dad to a girl at the age eighteen
And ever since then she's motivated me
I write songs for a living and I play the guitar
At night in those clubs go a little too far
And my baby keeps waiting while I'm away
Anxious and sad 'cause she wants me to stay
I've got a job that requires a lot of me
Pulled in every direction, but so is she

If I could stop the time when I needed a break
Get off the train and let it go its way
I wouldn't know how to thank you
If I could stop the time, let it all fly by
Take a deep, long breath and stay for a while
I wouldn't know what to say
And maybe I wouldn't feel this way

I ain't complaining
I'm just telling how things are
I'm way over my head here
I'm a worn out man who doesn't know where to start
So I turn to you

If I could stop the time when I needed a break
Get off the train and let it go its way
I wouldn't have known how to thank you
If I could stop the time, let it all fly by
Take a deep, long breath and stay for a while
I wouldn't know what to say
But maybe I wouldn't feel this way

If I could stop the time when I needed a break
Get off the train and let it go its way
I wouldn't know how to thank you
If I could stop the time, let it fly its way
Take a long, deep breath and stay for a day
I wouldn't know what to say
But maybe I wouldn't feel this way
