  • Find someone in love
    Hold them so close
    It's not close enough
    Moment to moment time's slipping away
    While you're looking for something you're hoping to find
    Are the things that you wanted within all the time

    You say stop
    Stop the world spinning
    Faster and faster
    We're losing our way
    You say stop
    Stop all this running
    Wanting to stay in one place

    Oh I know I was wrong
    Selfish am I to let you go on
    Just couldn't see what your love meant to me
    Till it was gone and all hope has faded away
    I could beg I could pray
    That you'd come back one day

    But you say stop
    Stop the world spinning
    Faster and faster
    We're losing our way
    You say stop
    Stop all the running
    Wanting to stay in one place

    Next time I know
    There's no time to waste
    If there is a next time
    I will stand up and say

    I say stop
    Stop the world spinning
    Faster and faster
    We're losing our way
    I said stop
    I'm only beginning to understand half the way
    Time slips away

    You say stop
    Time slips away
    Away
    Slips away
