Rush - Time Stand Still Lyrics

I turn my back to the wind
To catch my breath
Before I start off again
Driven on without a moment to spend
To pass an evening with a drink and a friend

I let my skin get too thin
I'd like to pause
No matter what I pretend
Like some pilgrim
Who learns to transcend
Learns to live as if each step was the end

(Time stand still)
I'm not looking back
But I want to look around me now
(Time stand still)
See more of the people and the places that surround me now
Time stand still
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Experience slips away
Experience slips away
Time stand still

I turn my face to the sun
Close my eyes
Let my defenses down
All those wounds that I can't get unwound

I let my past go too fast
No time to pause
If I could slow it all down
Like some captain, whose ship runs aground
I can wait until the tide comes around

(Time stand still)
I'm not looking back
But I want to look around me now
(Time stand still)
See more of the people and the places that surround me now
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Make each impression a little bit stronger
Freeze this motion a little bit longer
The innocence slips away
The innocence slips away
Time stand still
Time stand still

I'm not looking back
But I want to look around me now
See more of the people and the places that surround me now
Time stand still

Summer's going fast, nights growing colder
Children growing up, old friends growing older
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Experience slips away
Experience slips away
The innocence slips away

  4. mike mostad

    Peart was one of the greatest drummers of all time.. Maybe THE best of all time. The percussion on this tune maybe my fave of all of their work.

  5. Mike Grant

    The b52s gave them a little bit of magic dust but they had to split it 4 ways!

  6. VALERIA 9810

    I'm glad that I found this song, it's amazing!!!! 🤘🏽

    Amazing song and I had no idea Tim and Eric were directing music videos already in the 80's!

  32. tconk40554

    At 3:15 in this song you can here one of the most melodic and sonically satisfying arrangements ever recorded...

  33. The Cleveland Incident

    I'm pretty sure that guy flying the drum set is the original top gun

    Great song. Video? Not so much

  37. Ken Holley


  38. Party Van!

    Neil Peart in this video looks like John Wayne Bobbitt circa 1993. Do you kids know who John Wayne Bobbitt is?

    Samuel Lord

    Dude who got his willie chopped off by wifey. ;)

  39. Party Van!

    For all you kids out there: The female singer in this video is Aimee Mann. She was the vocalist and bass player for a band called ‘Til Tuesday. Their biggest hit was a song called “Voices Carry.” She eventually went on to have a solo career.


    Love her song "She really wants you".

  40. Malcolm Larri

    this video deserves an award for bad direction ! makes me laugh ! Amazing song though that makes me soooooooo damn happy

  41. Will Elliott

    Like so many of my favorite bands, I liked them so much better earlier on. To me, this is eighties drivel, and nothing beyond Signals interested me. Hemispheres is brilliant.

    Samuel Lord

    To each his own.

  42. flops031

    This is like 2019 Gen Z humor

  43. notnew2dis

    Every band caught the 80"s virus, it was spread via MTV. Worse than the plague.

  44. Rachel Shaskin

    I love Rush, but I wish Wakaliwood had done the video instead.

  45. Juno ugh

  54. David Boyce

    The Album Presto 1989 was based on my youngest son Preston Matthew Boyce and was based on events today after Dec15 2019. The country Rushia was named after Rush who have a pearty good drummer I know he likes this drummer Ginger Baker I am the legal Second Christ Thor and was found by the World Court and also they found I am the legal half brother of the rock star Eric Clapton. The Book of Revelation is drawing to a close and is linked to the Head of China Xi Jinping coming 66&6 months of age on Dec 15 2019. I and Elihana Elia Isreali Gospel singer Bride of Rev22:17, born my legal wife. We are in anagram codes in huge songs that have over 15 billion views on the internet. Our real father is an Eloah called Odin. From the triangular number 153 called the Key of David, the triangular number has 153 dots in it and 17 on three sides, 17x9=153 17 splits in ancient times to 7&10 so Jesus Christ was born 7BC October 9th, so you add1,2,3 with 17 for 217x9=1953 2 7 10 1953 AD for me or BC for Prophet Abraham as I am the completion man of a six part reincarnation of Pharoah Hotep Boethos- Prophet Abraham - King David- Jesus Christ - the Middle Christ Prince Madog ap Owain Gwynedd , Eric was my Madog brother Cynwrig. I have never come across any other person who is known as a reincarnation, in my case Madog as historians have asked me to write about So 666, if you were born in 1953 like me, you go through 66.6 when you are 66 years old and 6 months, in my case this is January 10 2020. Only one man on planet earth matches the BEAST MAN in Rev 13:18 six XI JINPING. The Elohim are currently in Beijing and will go after him and Beijing. The Chinese are waiting for me to make a public comment JINN you will see below are the Muslim religions demons. So he uses REv 6:15,16,17 for Dec 15 etc, and also Rev16 which speaks of these demons and King from the east. I am in Rev 17, 7& 10 and these verses to take on Xi Jinping the Warthog. I am the Voice in the Book of Revelation and part of it was written at Last Mountain Lakes Sask south of the Dog Head at the Big Arm by Liberty Sask which is straight east of Stonehenge use 2003 images to see the Gates to Heaven and it is Rev22:14,15. The World court made this the legal starting and ending point of the bible. We are currently in the Year of the Earth PIG going into the White RAT year. The Elohim have a plan to desalt sea water and construct a series of lakes throughout our earth's deserts and this will drop the sea level. They own earth and will proceed in starting a World Government.

    Pressed Rat and Warthog Cream
    Pressed Rat and Warthog have closed down their shop.
    They didn't want to, 'twas all they had got.
    Selling atonal apples, amplified heat,
    And Pressed Rat's collection of dog legs and feet.

    Sadly they left, telling no one goodbye.
    Pressed Rat wre red jodhpurs, Warthog a striped tie.
    Between them they carried a three-legged sack,
    Went straight round the corner and never came back.

    The bad captain madman had ordered their fate.
    He laughed and stomped off with a nautical gate.
    The gate turned into a deroga tree,
    And his peg-leg got woodworm and broke into three.

    Pressed Rat and Warthog have closed down their shop.
    They didn't want to, 'twas all they had got.
    Selling atonal apples, amplified heat,
    And Pressed Rats collection of dog legs and feet.

    ANAGRAM below for Dec 15 2019 warning to Communist China, it has now started, the beast in the east will fall at the hands of the Elohim. My two sons and I are near future kings and we have three queens planted by the Elohim just as Eric and I were planted.

    Viro minhas costas para o vento
    Para recuperar o fôlego antes de começar de novo
    Sem tempo à perder
    Para passar uma noite
    Com uma bebida e um amigo

    Eu deixei minha pele ficar fina demais
    Eu gostaria de fazer uma pausa
    Não importa o que eu finja
    Como algum peregrino
    Que aprende a transcender
    Aprende a viver
    Como se cada passo fosse o último

    O tempo não passa
    Eu não estou olhando para trás
    Mas agora eu quero olhar ao meu redor

    O tempo não passa
    Vejo mais pessoas
    E lugares que me cercam agora
    O tempo não passa

    Congele esse momento
    Um pouco mais
    Faça cada sensação
    Um pouco mais intensa

    Experiência desaparece
    Experiência desaparece
    O tempo não passa

    Eu viro meu rosto para o sol
    Fecho os meus olhos
    Abaixo minhas defesas
    Todas aqueles ferimentos
    Que eu não posso curar

    Eu deixei o meu passado ir muito rápido
    Sem tempo para uma pausa
    Se eu pudesse desacelerar tudo
    Como um capitão
    Cujo navio encalha
    Posso esperar até que a maré suba

    O tempo não passa
    Eu não estou olhando para trás
    Mas agora eu quero olhar ao meu redor

    O tempo não passa
    Vejo mais pessoas
    E lugares que me cercam agora
    O tempo não passa

    Faça cada impressão
    Um pouco mais intensa
    Congele esse movimento
    Um pouco mais

    A inocência se perde
    A inocência se perde
    O tempo não passa
    O tempo não passa

    O Verão está passando rápido
    As noites ficando mais frias
    Crianças crescendo
    Velhos amigos ficando mais velhos

    Experiência desaparece
    Experiência desaparece
    A inocência se perde

  73. Kurt Koch

    The song-to-video quality ratio is off the charts for this one.

  74. Jim Barr Official

    Ged with short hair is painful to look at.

  75. Truman Sharp

    I love watching Geddy's transformation over the years. He seemed more concerned about keeping the band relevant to the time. Plus Neil's lyrics kept up.

  82. Fleagle

    I love Rush. We all love Rush. But c'mon people. WTF is this?

  83. Donald Cook

    My kids laughed so hard on this video now they understand. 30 yrs ago

    Peculiar vid. Massively great song.

  85. Ricky Wells

    The face Geddy gives us as he goes across the screen lol

  86. Mark Alschbach
