Muscles in my hands they can’t understand
Tension like a vice every day
Why do I hold on when the moment’s gone
Got to let it slide fade away

Need a little love shine a light on me
Someone help me please

To take this moment slow it down
Breathe in deep and be here now
It’s slipping through my fingers
But I’m learnin’ to surrender
So teach me how to slow it down

Days are gettin’ long just keep draggin’ on
Tryin’ to find a stronger hand to hold
One step at a time tonight I’m doing fine
Facin’ all my monsters on my own

Did the best I could but I ain’t too proud
Please could you show me how

To take this moment slow it down
Breathe in deep and be here now
It’s slipping through my fingers
But I’m learnin’ to surrender
So teach me how to slow it down

How it feels to make a promise to a friend
Sound of water crashing on the rocks
Nothin’ golden in the will to try again
It’s learnin’ when to stop
