Brooke Branning: Music and Lyrics

Don't Let Life Pass You By

(Brooke Branning)

I was walking on a road,
on the site of some departed souls.
I heard a moan.  I heard a sigh
and then these words in a chilling cry
they said…

Chorus:
Don’t let life pass you by. 
Don’t you let it.  Don’t you let life pass you by.

The night was cold.  The moon was full.
And in a flash, I saw myself grow old.
It was unreal.  The voice upset.  And then
these words, filled with so much regret,
they said…

Chorus:
Don’t let life pass you by. 
Don’t you let it.  Don’t you let life pass you by.

Musical Solo

Chorus:
Don’t let life pass you by.  You’ll regret it.
Don’t you let life pass you by. 

I was stunned.  I tried to scream.
I said a prayer.  Maybe this is dream.
I couldn’t move.  My face was wet.
And then these words I will never forget,
they said…

Chorus:
Don’t let life pass you by. 
You’ll regret it.  Don’t you let life pass you by.

Ooh…Don’t let life pass you by.  Don’t you let it. Don’t you let life pass you by.
