Runner Up

I knew an angel
One day of my life
I was running, running, running, when I tripped and fell
She saw me, saw me, saw me, and rang that bell
I looked up into those wise, wise, eyes
Looking down on me, with a sigh, sigh, sigh
And she said:

"don't go running, don't go running
What's the rush, rush, rush?
Honey, honey, take it slow
You shouldn't waste a second, trust me, I know
Life is so short, so bitter, so sweet
So honey, honey, be more careful crossing the street"

I listened, listened, listened with fascination
But I think her words got lost in translation
Because when she said:

"Don't go running, don't go running
What's the rush, rush, rush
Honey, honey, take is slow
You shouldn't waste a second, trust me, I know
Life is so short, so bitter, so sweet
So honey, honey, be more careful crossing the street"

I got up and I kept running, running, running
All the way there
And I thought about it, 'bout it, 'bout it
Until I thought why should I care?
If life so short
If life is grand
If an angel herself told me to live for the moment
To live for the land
If an angel herself, told me to make it all count
Then I'm going to do it all
No matter if it's big or small
To hell with them all
