~ Don't Blink ~

I turned on the evenin' news
Saw an old man being interviewed
Turnin' a hundred and two today
They asked him what's the secret to life
He looked up from his ol' pipe
Laughed and said, "All I can say is" . . .
Don't blink
Just like that
You're six years old and you take a nap
And you wake up and you're twenty-five
And your high school sweetheart becomes your wife

Don't blink
You just might miss your babies growin' like mine did
Turnin' into moms and dads
Next thing you know
Your better half of fifty years is there in bed
And you're prayin' God takes you instead
Trust me, friend
A hundred years goes faster than you think
Don't blink

I was glued to my TV
When it looked like it looked at me
And said, "Let's start puttin' first things first"
'Cause when your hourglass runs outta sand
You can't flip it over, start again
Take every breath God gives you, for what it's worth

Don't blink
Just like that
You're six years old and you take a nap
And you wake up and you're twenty-five
And your high school sweetheart becomes your wife

Don't blink
You just might miss your babies growin' like mine did
Turnin' into moms and dads
Next thing you know
Your better half of fifty years is there in bed
And you're prayin' God takes you instead
Trust me, friend
A hundred years goes faster than you think
Don't blink

I been tryin' to slow it down
I been tryin' to take it in
In this here today, gone tomorrow world we're livin' in
Don't blink . . .

Just like that
You're six years old and you take a nap
And you wake up and you're twenty-five
And your high school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don't blink
You just might miss your babies growin' like mine did
Turnin' into moms and dads
Next thing you know
Your better half of fifty years is there in bed
And you're prayin' God takes you instead
Trust me, friend
A hundred years goes faster than you think
Don't blink . . . .

No, don't blink
Don't blink
Life goes faster than you think
Don't blink . . .
Don't blink
Life goes faster than you think
Don't blink . . .
