Time is just ticking
No life, no gigs
No wife, no kids
No prospects, but still no fear
The clock is still clicking
Twenty-nine is here, the future is near
No bride, but maybe a groom
And kids will be here soon
Inevitably, law is my chosen doom
My heart is still beating
I am still singing
New chances for love are still ringing my phone
Who cares if I sing in the shower when I’m alone
My brain is still thinking
My career is still gleaming
I still have no fear
I only cry joyous tears
And I’m still standing right here.
As fast as it came, even faster it went.
The faster we drank, the faster we sank.
Oblivious to reason, we crossed a line.
Who knew I’d be so blind?
In my dreams, it felt like bliss.
The harsh reality is now it feels like shit.
You pulled me in too close.
Who knew you’d be so bold?
From the tip of a mountain peak we fell freely.
Like a cruise ship in rough seas, we sank deeply.
You were on the prowl right from the beginning.
Who knew I’d be dinner?
Conspicuously you tried your hand, and I swatted it again and again.
But as fast as we drank, even faster we sank.
You pushed me out the door.
Who knew you’d be so cold?
“Yo! Give me a call.”
“Naw, I’m good.”
I’m awake now. No more dream clouds.
Who knew I’d know?
