time stood still once

i was there
when time stood still

i was there
when the Earth rumbled
and my everything crumbled
down around me--
it's how it had to be

i was there
when i Heard 'Em Say . . .
and the world turned gray
my mind stopped but my legs kept moving
there was no stopping their grooving

i was there
when time stood still
but the Earth kept spinning
and everyone kept grinning;
nobody knew time had froze
it was my burden to bear, i suppose
