The Time Is NOW

The song "Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On" from Jimmy Buffett's Take The Weather With You album was written after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2005.  It's an incredible song I wanted to share with you because not only does it apply to anyone suffering from the devastation of a natural disaster, but also to anyone that's gone through a rough time or is simply having a bad day.  It's about accepting what's happened and moving on with your life.  Enjoy! (lyrics below...)


"I bought a cheap watch from a crazy man
Floating down canal
It doesn't use numbers or moving hands
It always just says NOW
Now you may be thinking that I was had
But this watch is never wrong
And If I have trouble the warranty said
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On

And it rained, It was nothing really new
And it blew, we've seen all that before
And it poured, the Earth began to strain
Pontchartrain leaking through the door, tides at war

If a hurricane doesn't leave you dead
It will make you strong
Don't try to explain it just nod your head
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On

[Guitar Solo]

And it rained, It was nothing really new
And it blew, seen all that before
And it poured, the Earth began to strain
Pontchartrain buried the 9th Ward to the 2nd floor

According to my watch the time is NOW
Past is dead and gone
Don't try to shake it just nod your head
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On

Don't try to explain it just bow your head
Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On"
