Putting The Brakes On Time

Herndon Ty


I'm cuttin off the telephone

You unplug the tv

At the rate life's passin us by

We can't take the time to breathe

I know you can't turn time around

But maybe there's a way to slow it down

Sippin' iced tea from a backporch swing

Layin' by a river as the wold runs by

Makin' sweet love while the Mockingbird sings

We can try, puttin' the brakes on time

When did we last have a heart to heart talk

Over a glass of wine

Or stop and watch the grass grow

Or smell a honeysuckle vine

We can't put the sand back in the hourglass

But we can hold each other baby

And make the weekend last

Sippin' iced tea from a backporch swing

Layin' by a river as the wold runs by

Makin' sweet love while the Mockingbird sings

You and I, puttin' the brakes on time

Puttin' the brakes on time

We've been sippin' iced tea from the backporch swing

Lay down by the river as the world runs by

Make sweet love while the Mockingbird songs

Can't stop the clock but we can't sure enough try

To put the brakes, put the brakes on time
