Take your time
Take it slow
You've got to hold on to what you know
Breathe in now and let it go
If you live too fast you'll find
Your whole life has passed you by
And my whole world is upside down
I need to get my feet back on the ground

This the way we've learned to operate
Whoa, whoa
So take your time
And don't hesitate
To let it all out
All we need is a little direction
A pinch of affection
Goes a long way in this line
So take your time
And take it slow
We can make it out alive

We get built up
Like crashing tidal waves
Against the shore line
We're not safe
But we'll be alright
And when we're lost
We're sure we'll be found
We're making our back way around
Now we're homebound
Don't say that this is the end
We'll make it
Just pray that it all depends
On how we take it

This the way we've learned to operate
Whoa, whoa
So take your time
And don't hesitate
To let it all out
All we need is a little direction
A pinch of affection
Goes a long way in this line
So take your time
And take it slow
We can make it out alive

Alive

    General CommentHe is saying that the way we have come to know as living isn't the way, but we are never to far gone to be saved. Hope seems to be hiding between the lines here
