Look outside my window tell me what you see
The cars are moving fast and people in a hurry
Such dizzy lives
Oh look at them all go
I think I'll take the day off
Think I'll take it slow

I think I'll spend another hour in bed
I think I'll take my time
If I shut my phone off and I close the blinds
The world'll keep spinning but it's out of sight
And out of mind
It keeps spinning around

Seems we've all gone lost at sea without a compass
Yielding to the winds that blow into our sails
So now I'm lowering my anchor
I'm lost
And I won't move another mile

I think I'll spend another hour in bed
I think I'll take my time
I lost my bearings and I've grown so tired
Let the world keep spinning because it's out of sight
And out of mind
It keeps spinning

Leave me a message at the tone
You see I'm far too busy spending my time alone
I've got a feeling that I could get used to this
When there's nothing to do...
What part of busy do you miss?

I think I'll spend another hour in bed
I think I'll take my time
If I shut my phone off and I close the blinds
The world'll keep spinning but it's out of sight
And out of mind
Yeah, it keeps spinning around

    General CommentI love this song...I think its pretty clear. Its about slowing down and forgetting about the world for a while...makes me think of "I'm Only Sleeping" by the Beatles meaning-wise
