I wish I could tell you,
That everything’s ok,
When certainly there not…. (Cause in my mind)
The weight of getting older,
Falls right upon my shoulders
The clock never stops… (No rewind)
To you it means a change for good
A day you been waiting for
Well I, cannot abide, no how no way.
To me it means letting go
Of being carefree
Is something I’d rather not try, today.
I’ll be alright, I swear,
If it’s fine by you don’t pay me no mind.
I’ll be alright, I swear
It’s my life and it's ending one minute at a time
And I’m alive
And chilin out
And doin whatever I want.
I’m not sure exactly,
When time slipped thru my fingers,
But I’m afraid to lose anymore,
Please excuse the mess,
I can’t get over the hill and look back
No that’s for sure.
And days swing by so blissfully
Scares the shit out of me
My dear, does getting old mean you’ll be alone?
Afraid of death afraid of life
Knock the door and wasting time, hello,,
The thought of being without you is gone…
And I was thinking bout turning up the stereo
And playing something out loud so I couldn’t hear the world
And maybe stop it on its axis for a second
So I can live in the moment for just another minute in it
And I was thinking about closing up the shades
And acting like it never changes time in the day
And I don’t have to see the sun fade away
It’s like it never happened
Then I’d be ok.
