Switch! Earth Hour

Switch off the lights
Turn off the plugs
Click … flick … click …
 
Slow down the clocks
Calm down the rush
Tick … tock … tick …
 
Let the dark enfold you
Let the stillness hold you
And hear the earth
Breathe a sigh of relief
 
Let the stress escape you
Let the moment take you
And feel the moon
Change a tide of belief
 
Strike up a match
Light up a candle
Flicker … flutter … flicker …
 
Watch as your thoughts dance
Wait as your mind grows
Quicker … quieter … quicker …
 
Let the hour unwind you
Let the meaning find you
And sense the touch
Of invisible hands
 
Let the rhythm shift you
Let the song uplift you
And feel the heartbeat
Of connected lands
 
Lighten your tread
Brighten your path
Step … stop … step …
 
Act for the child
Care for our home
Switch … shine … switch!
