The World Ain't Slowin' Down by Ellis Paul - lyrics

playlist Playlist
I found you sitting on a suitcase crying
Beneath my feet,
I feel the rumble of a subway train
I laugh out loud,
'Cause it's the one thing I hadn't been trying
The train came in breathless,
The passenger's restless
You say, "Baby, you'll never change"
You gotta get gone, you gotta get going
Hey, the world ain't slowing down for no one
It's a carnival callin' out to you
It sounds like a song,
Hits you like scripture
You paint the picture
With colors squeezed from your hand
Weren't you the kid
Who just climbed on the merry-go-round
Hey look, the world ain't slowing down
Hey, hey, the world ain't slowing down
Hey, hey
Out on the sidewalk,
Pigeon's do the moonwalk
I'll be dancing like Fred Astaire
The lamppost's are rockin'
The whole town's talkin'
Like a fool in a barber's chair
And I get the sensation,
The joy and frustration
Like being caught by a tropical rain
Freedom can numb you,
When there's no place to run to
It feels just like Novocaine
You gotta get gone, you gotta get going
Hey the world ain't slowin' down for no one
It's a carnival callin' out to you
(It's callin' out to you)
It sounds like a song,
Hits you like scripture
You paint the picture
With colors squeezed from your hand
Weren't you the kid
Who just climbed on the merry-go-round
Hey look, the world ain't slowin' down
Hey, hey, the world ain't slowing down
Hey, hey
You packed up all your handbags,
Throwing off the sandbags
I let go and you stepped free
I didn't want to loose you
You said, "You didn't choose to,
It's just how your karma came."
But thanks for the vision,
And the twenty-twenty wisdom
It hit me like a south-bound train
You gotta get gone, you gotta get going
Hey the world ain't slowin' down for no one
It's a carnival callin' out to you
(It's callin' out to you)
It sounds like a song,
Hits you like scripture
You paint the picture
With colors squeezed from your hand
Weren't you the kid
Who just climbed on the merry-go
Weren't you the kid
Who just climbed on the merry-go
Weren't you the kid
Who just climbed on the merry-go-round
Hey look, the world ain't slowin' down
Hey, hey, the world ain't slowin' down
Hey, hey, it's a big, blue world
It's a big, blue world
Ridin' on a big, blue world
