Original Song – “Time Stands Still”

Time Stands Still is a fast, upbeat little song about love and the power of attraction it holds over those who choose to be vulnerable and open to love.  To love is to be vulnerable and risk rejection, yet to be loved is to gain the world!  This song uses the metaphors of time standing still, the sun rising and setting and the sands of time flowing through an hourglass to describe the power of attraction that love holds over us, “The world goes around, Every day, But time stands still, Whenever you say, Do you love me, Oh, do you love me, The sun will rise, The sun will set, But the hands of time, Are standin’ still, Yes I love you, Oh, yes I love you…”

“Time Stands Still” is a little song from Set 2 that I recorded in 1996 that speaks to the emotion of love, sunshine, the world going around, the sands of time, and watching a sunrise. I only recorded this song once, and if I was to do it again, I’d start slowly and gradually build up speed instead of jumping right into it from the start. I was still trying to get my feet on the ground recording-wise during Set 2, and missed the transitional note leading into the ending, but what the heck – it was what it was – a snapshot of a day in the life of this dreamer! Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark

The world goes around

Every day

But time stands still

Whenever you say

           D

Do you love me

                A

Oh, do you love me

The sun will rise

The sun will set

But the hands of time

Are standin’ still

Yes I love you

              A

Oh, yes I love you

The sands of time

Will always flow

And my love for you

Will always grow

Everytime

I look in your eyes

It feels like watchin’

The sun rise

         G

In the morning

         D

In the morning

      C

For sunshine

Brings life to the world

And your love for me

Is all I would

               G

Have ever needed

               D

Have ever needed

     G

So let the world go around

Everyday

But time stands still

Whenever you say

        D

Yes I love you

              A

Oh, yes I love you

      G

The world goes around

Everyday

But time stands still

Whenever you say

           D

Do you love me

                A

Oh, do you love me

The sun will rise

The sun will set

But the hands of time

Are standin’ still

        G

Yes I love you

              D

Oh, yes I love you

      C

The sands of time

Will always flow

And my love for you

Will always grow

I’ll always love you

              D

I’ll always love you

              A

I’ll always love you

       D

Love you
