7. Make time for love

I think a lot of people today put work commitments before family and friends.

They’re simply far too busy! Priorities all wrong! I’m guilty your honour!

1G C D G

You're too busy, counting all the ripples in the sea,

Em C

Running round in circles needlessly,

D G

Making all those plans so easily.

C

And you're swimming,

D G

floundering in a whirlpool all the time,

Em C

Racing like a fish to catch the line,

Am

While the grains of sand are falling

in this hourglass of mine…

D G

Make time for love,

D G

Make time for love

C D G

You're too busy, thinking that by rushing here and there,

Em C

Power'd by highest motives built on care,

D G

That you'll achieve perfection, climb the stairs.

C D G

And your children, all like buried treasure oh so rare,

Em C

One day soon will not be waiting there,

Am

And the sand within the hourglass is descending through the air…

D G

Make time for love,

D G

make time for love.

C D G

There's a hundred, a thousand things in life still to be done,

Em C

But all these things just can't be done by 'one'

D G

So still the racing clouds… and see the sun,

C D G

Catch the blossom, now before it gently fades away.

Em C

Smell its perfume let it have its say,

Am

Who have you neglected in your race of life today?

D G

Make time for love,

D G

make time for love. :]
