What a Rush

Begin the day With a friendly voice A companion, unobtrusive Plays that song that's so elusive And the magic music makes your morning mood Off on your way Hit the open road There is magic at your fingers For the spirit ever lingers Undemanding contact In your happy solitude Invisible airwaves Crackle with life Bright antennae bristle With the energy Emotional feedback On a timeless wavelength Bearing a gift beyond price, Almost free All this machinery Making modern music Can still be open-hearted Not so coldly charted It's really just a question Of your honesty One likes to believe In the freedom of music But glittering prizes And endless compromises Shatter the illusion Of integrity For the words of the profits Were written on the studio wall, Concert hall, Echoes with the sounds, of salesmen

I turn my back to the wind To catch my breath Before I start off again Driven on without a moment to spend To pass an evening With a drink and a friend. I let my skin get too thin I'd like to pause No matter what I pretend Like some pilgrim who learns to transcend Learns to live as if each step was the end. Time stand still I'm not looking back But I want to look around me now See more of the people And the places that surround me now. Freeze this moment A little bit longer Make each sensation A little bit stronger Experience slips away. I turn my face to the sun Close my eyes Let my defenses down All those wounds That I can't get unwound. I let my past go too fast No time to pause If I could slow it all down Like some captain Whose ship runs aground I can wait until the tide Comes around. Make each impression A little bit stronger Freeze this motion A little bit longer The innocence slips away. Summer's going fast Nights growing colder Children growing up Old friends growing older Experience slips away.
