Blink of an Eye - Michael McDonald

By george perilli and michael mcdonald

Child, as I look in your eyes
You know my life seems like a minute
There I find living proof
Of all the wonder life hold in it
In the past I thought I had to learn
Any good that comes from this life we?re living
Here and now, let us realize
That this life?s gift and it?s already been given

Someday when you stand in the middle
Like it or not you?re gonna look both ways
You?re gonna find that time is a riddle
Where days turn into years
And years into the blink of an eye

Child, once I saw a man on the tv
Lead a nation up a mountain
He said, children, look over yonder
The flame of truth is burning brightly
Sometimes you look so far, there?s only so much time
Only so many of us are gonna get there
Here and now is all we really have
But if we can make it count
We got no reason to worry


You?re gonna walk that mile
You?re gonna be in that number
You?re gonna make that journey
Just like the good book says
There?s a time to be born, a time to cross over
You can be sure it?s in the blink of an eye
