Does it ever make you long
For a sweet sun shower
Wish it were today
Sky is kinda gray
People dressed up in the yard
Bundled up they hurry
Rush from place to place
All I wanna say

Can we just slow down
(Set your pace no need to hurry)
Let me catch my breath

I don't wanna miss a single thing
(What's your worry)
Keep your friends around
(Gather round enjoy your family)
Keep out of the race

Woke up to the telephone
Mother asking if I'll bring the cake
Father's birthday
86 and doing well
Really holds his own he's feeling great
Always hear him say

Take it day by day
Come what may
I don't want to be the one that says
How'd my life go by
In the blinking of an eye?

Share the love
See the sights
Take a walk
Everything will be alright
I'm just sayin'
Take your time
It's alright
Take a breath
Try to stop and see the signs
Keep out of the race
Set your pace

I like the mood. In a way it kinda takes you away to a sunny place in the mountains somewhere. or something like that.

Positive upbeat theme with nice layering of vocals. Especially liked the line "I'm just saying"...really stands out.

Nice, simple, positive message, well delivered. Liked the vocal and instrumental arrangements. The pace was good ,too, kinda like a quick stroll.

simon and garfunkel meets the kingston trio?!real retro 60's-very nice. the vocal arrangement sparkles

Very nice feel to this song along with the message. Love the vocal and harmonies.

Well written melodious song with very good harmonies. There is some skillful playing going on and the Banjo lifts the whole arrangement.This track has a tight sound played and recorded to a high standard

Nice pop tune. Like the harmonies. Banjo is a unique touch.

Nice bouncy song. I love that banjo that cruises in the mix. Really good track!

Great vocals and harmonies. Very well done
