Don’t Stop The World

Lyrics by Duane Hewitt

It hasn’t all been easy
The troubles we out grew
The fears we had
Not all that bad or new—
The love we had to guide us
Would send the storms away
Our knowing that
And still we had to pray—

(Chorus)
Don’t stop the world
We can’t let go
Until we know
We’ve really made it
Don’t fear the sky
We’ll still get by
On all the love
We ever had

It may never be that easy
But we’ll give it one more try—
Don’t stop the world
Don’t stop the world
Don’t stop the world

The days we shared together
The tears we brought our way
And all we learned
We finally turned to gold—

The memories we saved for
To live for once again
And all the way
We still would pray for more—

(Chorus)
Don’t stop the world
We can’t let go
Until we know
We’ve really made it
Don’t fear the sky
We’ll still get by
On all the love
We ever had

It may never be that easy
But we’ll give it one more try—
Don’t stop the world
Don’t stop the world
Don’t stop it—

We’re laughing out loud
And sailing blue waters
It’s just where we wanted to be—
On top of dark clouds
No storms looming over
We’d blow them out
Beyond the open sea—

(Chorus)
Don’t stop the world
We can’t let go
Until we know
We’ve really made it
Don’t fear the sky
We’ll still get by
On all the love
We ever had

It may never be that easy
But we’ll give it one more try—
Don’t stop the world
Don’t stop the world
Don’t stop the world.
(Repeat and finish.)
