Graham Nash



People come and go

Living other lives

Running everywhere at such a speed

Never taking time

To open up their eyes

Never knowing where life leads



In the heartland people everywhere

Try to share their hopes and dreams

In the heartland on any given day

You can find your way back home



Take another breath

And take another chance

Take another look at who you are

And get ready for your live

'Cos it's such a crazy dance

So open up and you'll go far



We've been running so far away

From where our lives belong

Will we ever get back to the rhythm of the heartbeat

Do you ever feel sad

For those whose hearts have turned to stone

You are not alone



It's time to take it slow

Time to take a rest

Time to leave the fast lane far behind

Live is hard enough, I know

But you can only do your best

To get it in your heart and minds
