Song Description

Stress is....anything we let it be. We can't control what life throws at us, only the attirude with which we catch it.

Lyrics

Lighten Up
Tim Bays/Jack Turner
© 1989 In Cahoots Music, Leverage Music (ASCAP)

When the only thing a sunset means is that you're one day older
And all you see in autumn leaves is that it's getting colder
When half of North America is right there on your shoulders
Don't you think it's time to lighten up?...hey, lighten up

When every Monday morning you already feel behind
And even making love is just another deadline
When you're thinking life is much too short not noticing it's wide
Hey don't you think it's time to...

Chorus
Lighten up, take it slow
You've done enough, oh, let it go
Sometimes all that you can do
Is change your point of view
And lighten up...hey, lighten up

When playing with your children is just another job
And going on vacation is the last thing that you want
When the prayers for what you need outweigh the thanks for what you've got
Hey, don't you think it's time
Don't you know it's time to...

Bridge
There's a bluebird saying "Put it off until tomorrow"
And there's a hot bath waiting down the hall
There's a sweet dream hiding underneath your pillow
And someone here who loves you best of all...so...

Tag...fly a little bit higher
Lighten up...see a little bit further
Lighten up...it's time to have some fun
Lighten up...maybe fall in love
Lighten up
