"Let's Be Still" as written by and Jonathan Russell Josiah Johnson....
You can get lost in the music for hours
honey, You can get lost in a room
We can play music for hours and hours
But the sun'll still be coming up soon

The world's just spinning
A little too fast
If things don't slow down soon
we might not last
So just for the moment, let's be still

You can get lost in the music for hours
honey, You can get lost in a room
We can play music for hours and hours
But the sun'll still be coming up soon

The world's not forgiving
Of everyone's fears
The days turn into months
the months turn into years
So just for the moment, let's be still

They're tearing down
So we can rebuild
And all this time
Is just circles in my mind
So just for a moment
Just one moment
Just for a moment let's be still
Just for a moment let's be still
Just for a moment let's be still
Just for a moment let's be still

Ain't no time for me
how we see it so clearly
Ain't no time for me, oh

The world's just spinning
A little too fast
If things don't slow down soon
we might not last
The world's not forgiving
Of everyone's fears
The days turn into months the months turn into years
So just for a moment, let's be still

Just for a moment let's be still
Just for a moment let's be still
Just for a moment let's be still
Just for a moment let's be still
Just for a moment let's be still
Just for a moment let's be still

    My InterpretationBeautiful.
    This song seems to capture a relationship (a romantic one, IMO, but could be platonic) where the singer's significant other is the one they go to in order to clear their head and feel normal again, feeling protected – at least momentarily – from the fast pace of the world.

    It captures one of the most beautiful parts of a romantic relationship without becoming sappy. I hope to make this my wedding song one day.

    General CommentI see it as a fear of time and how things around us, including time, move so fast and how we should just be in the moment with the person we claim to love or have a true friendship with. I also think the fear causes us to realize that we need to cherish and really appreciate the love we have for our loved one because we only have so much time here.
