“Secret O’ Life”

I recently got to go see James Taylor in concert.  Yes, it was amazing.  I have long admired his guitar playing and songwriting skills.  Luck would have it he opened up with one of my favorite songs of his, “Secret O’ Life”.  As I get older I find myself often getting mehlencoly.  I think about how my kids have already grown up and how fast time seems to be flying.  This song is a great antidote so I thought I would share the lyrics with you all….
 
“Secret O’ Life”

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 anyone knows that love is the only road.

And since we’re only here for a while, might as well show some style. Give us a smile.

Isn’t it a lovely ride? Sliding down, 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? Sliding down, gliding down,

try not to try too hard, it’s just a lovely ride.
The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.
