  • The secret of life
    Is enjoying the passage of time.
    Any fool can do it,
    There ain't nothing to it.
    Nobody knows how we got
    To the top of the hill.
    But since we're on our way down,
    We might as well enjoy the ride.

    The secret of love
    Is in opening up your heart.
    It's okay to feel afraid,
    But don't let that stand in your way.
    'Cause anyone knows
    That love is the only road.
    And since we're only here for a while,
    Might as well show some style.
    Give us a smile.

    Isn't it a lovely ride?
    Sliding down, gliding down,
    Try not to try too hard,
    It's just a lovely ride.

    Now the thing about time
    Is that time isn't really real.
    It's just your point of view,
    How does it feel for you?
    Einstein said he
    Could never understand it all.
    Planets spinning through space,
    The smile upon your face,
    Welcome to the human race.

    Some kind of lovely ride.
    I'll be sliding down,
    I'll be gliding down.
    Try not to try too hard,
    It's just a lovely ride.
    Isn't it a lovely ride?
    Sliding down, gliding down,
    Try not to try too hard,
    It's just a lovely ride.
    The secret of life
    Is enjoying the passage of time. Writer/s: JAMES TAYLOR
