The Middle Years

© 2009 Recorded on Time Ain't Got Nothin' On Me


Seems like only yesterday I was really on my way

young and green I used to sway like a willow through the breeze

now every time I turn around another sun is goin down

days are fallin to the ground like dyin autumn leaves


After all these little dreams and fears we're comin to the middle years

lookin in a rear view mirror ain’t no turning round

and after all the time that's passed slippin through an hour glass

God it all goes by so fast and it ain't slowin down


All my clothes don't fit me right I don't go out late at night

sometimes I'd rather run than fight or not show up at all

I might have set the world on fire but now I walk a tight rope wire

I'm just another man for hire waitin on a call


After all these little dreams and fears we're comin to the middle years

lookin in a rear view mirror ain’t no turning round

and after all the time that's passed slippin through an hour glass

God it all goes by so fast and it ain't slowin down


All my hair is turnin gray it's gettin thinner every day

I still got somethin left to say I just don't say it quite as loud

so hang on honey hold on tight everything is gonna be all right

I'll be back home tomorrow night and I'll be walkin on a coud


After all these little dreams and fears we're comin to the middle years

lookin in a rear view mirror ain’t no turning round

and after all the time that's passed slippin through an hour glass

God it all goes by so fast and it ain't slowin down
