Stop!

  • [Chorus x 2]
    Stop! Take some time to think, figure out what's important to you
    Stop! Take some time to think, figure out what's important to you
    Stop! Take some time to think, figure out what's important to you
    You've got to make a serious decision

    It could be me up there in stage lights
    It could be me on the TV in your living room
    It could be me jet-setting with my band all across the world
    Appearing live in concert one night only, tickets sold out

    [Chorus]

    There I am giving candid disclosure to press in interview
    There I go on my way through the crowd up to the podium
    On behalf of our fans we'd like to accept this award
    Smile for the camera, boys, gold record in hand

    [Chorus]

    All of our lives in waiting
    All of our lives traded for their roses and applause
    All of our lives dedicated to shoving it right back in their fucking face

    Stop! Take some time to think, figure out what's important to you
    Stop! Take some time to think, figure out what's important to you
    Stop! Take some time to think, figure out what's important to you
    You've got to make a serious decision
    Said, you've got to make a serious decision

    Stop! Take some time to think Writer/s: THOMAS JAMES GABEL
