"Life Speeds Up" Lyrics

The Church

The clouds in the sky
Are all rushing by
A stare's just a backwards glance

The years and the days
Are all melting away
Yet you still won't take a chance

But life speeds up
Don't you know? Don't you know?
Life speeds up
Then it goes away

The push and the throb
The threat of the mob
The crack's not a secret this time

The mouths and the doors
That I can't shut anymore
Keep running, you're falling behind

But life speeds up
Don't you know? Don't you know?
Life speeds up
Then it goes away

The world spins alone
And the weight of it groans
I get dizzy just turning the page

The air holds us down
And we're stuck on the ground
Trying to slip off our age

But life speeds up
Don't you know? Don't you know?
Life speeds up
Then it goes away

Come to the window, come to the door
Given under my hand, given under the law
I gave you everything you still want more
They gave you some mad forgotten war

Now it's time to slow things down
Because I told you life speeds up

Tell me how it happened, did it hurt? Did you cry?
Did you ever feel yourself falling out of the sky?
Did you ever lie awake and wonder why?
Did you ever fall asleep and dream that you died?

Now it's time to slow things down
Because I told you life speeds up
And up and up

We grind to a halt and we start again
We come to a corner but it's only a bend
And all those broken promises, they never mend
Who cares if it's mad when it's only pretend?

Now it's time to slow things down
Because I told you life speeds up
Now it's time to slow things down
Because I told you life speeds up
