Rest Lyrics

half•alive – Rest Lyrics

[Verse 1]
It was something I believed in
Ain't no rest until the bank account's peakin'
They say the city never sleeps in
But living busy isn't giving you your worth
Slowing down is fighting back
The time you take is given back
Shifting gears is saving gas

[Pre-Chorus]
Hiding in the quiet is a world of wisdom
Slowing down and see it

[Chorus]
Rest is a secret
I start to believe in

[Verse 2]
This city's built on blood and muscle (Yeah, yeah)
Skyscrapers held up by philosophy of hustling
But Saturday is my cathedral
A day to stop and rest is holding up the steeple
This might be news to all the people
Living busy isn't giving you your worth

[Pre-Chorus]
Slowing down is fighting back
Hiding in the quiet is a world of wisdom
Calling on the voice so you could finally listen

[Chorus]
Rest is a secret
I start to believe in (Believe in)
Stopping the motion to process the moment
(Why don't we stop just to process?)

[Verse 3: Samm Henshaw]
Can I take a minute‚ maybe a breath to breathe?
Can I take a second? I'm craving clarity
So lost in the thought of what one day I could be that
That I forgot to take some time to make a richer me
I searched around to find myself a mental cure
I took a break‚ that's probably what I was looking for
What once was lost has finally got me reassured

[Bridge]
Leaving room for greater paths
Letting go and kicking back
Reading books and taking baths
Slowing down is

[Chorus]
Rest is a secret
I start to believe in (Believe in)
Stopping the motion to process the moment
(Stopping the motion)
Now we stopped‚ you're used to it
