Wise words of graffiti in China


Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round
Or listened to the train stopping on the ground
Every followed a butterfly’s erratic flight
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night

You better slowdown, don’t dance too fast
Time is short, the music wont last

Do you run through each day on the fly
When you ask how are you, do you hear the reply?
When the day is done, do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores running through your head

You better slowdown, don’t dance too fast
Time is short, the music wont last

Ever told your child we’ll do it tomorrow
And in your haste, not see his sorrow
Ever lost touch? Let a good friendship die
Cos you never had time to call and say hi

You better slowdown, don’t dance too fast
Time is short, the music wont last

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there
When you worry and hurry things in your day
Its like an unopened gift thrown away

You better slowdown
don’t dance too fast
Time is short
the music wont last

Song written on the wall of a hostel in Li Jiang, China
