Don't Blink

Album: Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates (2007)
Charted: 29
  • When this song about life going "faster than you think" debuted at #16 on the Billboard Hot Country Song charts, in September 2007, it overtook Keith Urban's "Once in a Lifetime" as the highest new entry in that listing. The record only lasted a week, as seven days later, Garth Brooks' "More Than a Memory " bulleted straight in at #1 on the Country chart.

  • Camille from Toronto, OhThe moral of this song rings so true: Trust me friend~a hundred years goes faster than you think
    So don't blink~Best start putting first things first.~Cause when your hourglass runs out of sand~You can't flip over and start again~Take every breathe God gives you for what it's worth~Don't Blink!! Couldn't have worded it any better!
