Takin' a Time Out

from Single Songs by Lytingale



Oh, COVID... you're making us take a Time Out, putting us into pandemic lockdown.
Let's not miss the opportunity to look at life a little differently, to consider what we want to go back to and what we want to change, to get in touch with what's truly precious in this life.


We're takin' a time out.
Sittin' in a corner till we mend our ways.
Appreciate the little things that bless our days.

It's quiet. There's not so much noise.
We've been too busy to enjoy life.

Slow down, take your time.
Learn something new while you've got the time.

Traffic is down all over the town.
Mother Earth is greener and the air is cleaner.

Get to know your children in a brand new way.
Makin' a new connection, listen to what they say.

Missin' the friends and relations, the people in all kinds of places we knew.
Tell 'em you miss 'em, you'll hug 'em and kiss 'em when all this is through.

We're takin' a time out.
Till we turn the corner and mend our ways.
Appreciate the little things that bless our days.
