I want the world to stop
(I want the world to stop)
Give me the morning
(Give me the understanding)

I want the world to stop
(I want the world to stop)
Give me the morning
(Give me the afternoon, the night, the night)

Let me step out of my shell
That's wrapped in sheets of milky winter disorder
Let me feel the air again, the talk of friends
The mind of someone my equal

I want the world to stop
(I want the world to stop)
Give me the morning
(Give me the understanding)

I want the world to stop
(I want the world to stop)
Give me the morning
(Give me the afternoon, the night, the night)

Tinseltown has followed me from
Tinseltown to gray, adorable city by the docks
The girls are walking, moving yet the sun hangs low
The girls don't care as they paint themselves at dusk

I want the world to stop
(I want the world to stop)
Give me the morning
(Give me the afternoon, the night, the night)

Towns' and cities' populations up and grow
The workers move to the suburbs
In between I watch and go
I run alongside rush hour traffic, a prayer for every car

I want the world to stop
(I want the world to stop)
Give me the morning
(Give me the understanding)

I want the world to stop
(I want the world to stop)
Give me the morning
(Give me the afternoon)

I want the world to stop
(I want the world to stop)
Give me the morning
(Give me the understanding)

I want the world to stop
(I want the world to stop)
Give me the morning
(Give me the afternoon, the night, the night)

I want to write a message to you
Everyday at ten o'clock in the evening
Yellow pearl my city, yes, this is your art
This is your Balzac, your Brookside and your Bach
