How Do You Stop
by James Brown



Hard bodies, soft emotions
So fast so smart
The world's at your feet
But what about your heart
Fame and power can't hold you tight
In the late hours of the night

How do you stop (How do you stop)
Before it's too late
You choose and you lose if you hesitate
How do you stop (How do you stop)
Before it's too late
You think love will wait
So you don't hold on and then it's gone
Then it's gone

You've had some success
A new group of friends
You called it the "good life"
Thought it would never never end
One minute you're too young
Then you're in your prime
Then you're lookin' back
Through the hands of time

How do you (How do you stop)
Before it's too late
You choose and you lose if you hesitate
How do you stop (How do you stop)
Before it's too late
You think love will wait
You don't hold on and then it's gone

How do you stop a runaway train
How do you stop the pouring, pouring of rain
How do you stop the night turning to day
How do you stop love from slipping away
How do you stop from believing
How do you stop lovers from deceiving
How do you stop the tide from coming in
How do you stop the cold, cold wind

(How do you stop)
Before it's too late
You choose and you lose if you hesitate
How do you stop (How do you stop)
Before it's too late
You think love will wait
So you don't hold on and then it's gone
Then it's gone

(How do you stop)
A runaway train
How do you stop pouring, pouring rain
How do you stop a heart with wings
How do you stop everything
How do you stop before it's to late
Choose and you lose if you hesitate
How do you stop before it's to late
It's your life
