Simple sweet guitar
Humbled by the bass
So when the beat kicks in
Everything falls into place

And it over powers me
I can't help but dance 
You can try to stop me now
Boy you won't get tha chance

Half time, time to think it through
Consider the change 
See it from a different view 
Half time,  time to think it through
Consider the change 

Rhythm floods my heart
The melody it feeds my soul
The tune tears me apart
And it swallows me whole 

You should thank your lucky stars
'Cause the music is a gift
And it's stronger than all else
Provides me with up lift

Half time, time to think it through
Consider the change 
See it from a different view 
Half time, time to think it through
Consider the change 

My lyrics revealin'
Some natural vibe
It's a kind a laid back feelin'
Oh just let it ride

And when Frank Sinatra sings
It's to much to take, yeah
So I sing the standard shit
It pacify's my ache

Half time, time to think it through
Consider the change 
See it from a different view 
Half time, time to think it through
Consider the change

    For me, the lyrics represented her unwavering passion for music - while the chorus takes a different "prospective" view. I don't think the lyrics & chorus were necessarily "meant" to sync together.
    And one other quick note, amy had well-publicized "crush" on hip-hop contemporary legend, nasir "nas" jones. Amy has named a few titles of her songs to match nas's titles (as well as indirectly referencing him in "me & mr. Jones" ("back to black"), 'half time" falls into the same category in which i feel is another "wink" at "nas".
    We have truly lost one of the few contemporaries that can sing a standard or contemporary song & sound natural in doing so. I miss her already.
