Would The World Stop

     Time stand still Time stand 
     still Time stand still 
     Like a fall through silence 

     Let me look at you 
     How you’ve grown 

     At home 
     Things grown at home best 

     Yes everything 
     Cats and birds 

     Small hums 
     Hymns and haws 
     Going up 

     Horns and other rapture 
     On the CD 

     Every day heroes saving their souls 
     Deserve our appreciation 

     If I pledge this allegiance 
     Sign this contract 
     It better mean coverage for every child 
     Every parent 
     Every one
