Don't Blink

In the style of

Kenny Chesney

Lyrics

i turned on
the evenin' news saw
an old man bein'
interviewed
turnin' a hundred
and two today

asked him what's
the secret to life
he looked up
from his old 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
so don't blink

i was glued to
my tv when it
looked like
he looked at me
and said
best start puttin'
first things first

'cause when your
hourglass
runs out of sand
you can't
flip it over
and start again

take every breath
god gives you
for what it's worth

don't blink
'cause 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
so don't blink

so i've been tryin'
to slow it down
i've 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
then 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
so don't blink

naw don't blink
life goes faster
than you think
