One second at a time - with eyes wide open, donít want to miss the signs.

In the blink of an eye Ė a moment passes, who knows what just flew by.

What did we miss?
It happened so fast,
And we canít get it back.

Sixty ticks make up one minute and every-one has living in it,
Let the hands of time caress you and never let go.

If we do not pay attention we may just miss the right direction,
Donít close your eyes as time passes by Ö
All we have is one minute at a time.

One second at a time - donít take for granted, the smallest of the lines.

A face without the eyes - always in motion, as little moments rush right by.

What did we miss?
It happened so fast,
And weíll never get it back.

Sixty ticks make up one minute and every-one has living in it,
Let the hands of time caress you and never let go.

If we do not pay attention we may just miss the right direction,
Donít close your eyes, as time passes by Ö
All we have is one minute at a time.

Whoa Ö the sands of time are designed to bury you,
Whoa Ö hear the old manís pendulum keep singing,
Join in song leave no regretting.

Sixty ticks make up one minute - and every-one has living in it,
Let the hands of time caress you and never let go.

If we do not pay attention we may just miss the right direction,
Donít close your eyes, as time passes by Ö
All we have is one minute at a time.

One minute at a time.

Minutes really do pass by so quickly. It is hard to hold on to each moment and live in that one space of time.

Very haunting. I really love how you use the refrain. Good work!
