Lyrics to "Don't Blink" by Kenny Chesney


I turned on the evening news
Saw an old man being interviewed
Turning a hundred and two todayAsked him what's the secret to life?
He looked up from his old pipe
Laughed and said, "All I can say isDon't blink, just like that you're six years old
And you take a nap
And you wake up and you're twenty-five
And your high school sweetheart becomes your wifeDon't blink, you just might miss
Your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads
Next thing you know your better half
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you're praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years
Goes faster than you think, so don't blinkI was glued to my TV, when it looked
Like he looked at me and said
"Best start putting first things first"'Cause when your hourglass runs out of sand
You can't flip it over and start again
Take every breathe God gives you for what it's worthDon't blink, 'cause just like that you're six years old
And you take a nap
And you wake up and you're twenty-five
And your high school sweetheart becomes your wifeDon't blink, you just might miss
Your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads
Next thing you know your better half
Of fifty years is there in bed
And you're praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years
Goes faster than you think, so don't blinkSo I've been trying to slow it down
I've been trying to take it in
In this 'here today, gone tomorrow' world we're living inSo don't blink, 'cause just like that you're six years old
And you take a nap
And you wake up and you're twenty-five
And your high school sweetheart becomes your wifeDon't blink, you just might miss
Your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads
Next thing you know your better halfOf fifty years is there in bed
And you're praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend a hundred years
Goes faster than you think, so don't blinkNo, don't blink
Don't blink
Life goes faster than you think
So don't blinkLife goes faster than you think
Don't blink
Don't blink
Life goes faster than you think
