The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time
Any fool can do it , there ain’t nothing to it
Nobody knows how we got to the top of the hill
But since we’re on our way down
We might as well enjoy the ride

The secret of love is in opening up your heart
It’s okay to feel afraid
But don’t let that stand in your way
‘Cause everyone knows that love is the only road
And since we’re only here for a while
We might as well show some style

Give us a smile
Isn’t it a lovely ride, sliding down and gliding down
Try not to try too hard, it’s just a lovely ride

Now the thing about time is that time isn’t really real
It’s just your point of view, how does it feel for you
Einstein said he could never understand it all
Planets spinning through space
The smile upon your face

Welcome to the human race
Some kind of lovely ride,
I’ll be sliding down, I’ll be gliding down
Try not to try too hard, it’s just a lovely ride

Isn’t it a lovely ride,
I’ll be sliding down, see me gliding down
Try not to try too hard, it’s just a lovely ride
Now, the secret of life is enjoying the passage of time
