What has life to offer me when I grow old?
What's there to look forward to beyond the biting cold
They say it's difficult, yes, stereotypical.

What's
there beyond sleep, eat, work in this cruel life
Ain't there nothin' else 'round here but human strife
'Cause they say it's difficult, yes, stereotypical
Gotta be conventional, you can't be so radical.

Chorus:
So I sing this song to all of my age
For these are the questions we've got to face
For in this cycle that we call life
We are the ones who are next in line
We are next in line.

What has life to offer me when I grow old?
What's there to look forward to beyond the biting cold
'Cause they say it's difficult, yes, stereotypical
Gotta be conventional, you can't be so radical.

So I sing this song to all of my age
For these are the questions we've got to face
For in this cycle that we call life
We are the ones who are next in line
We are next in line
Oh-hoh, we are next in line.

Bridge:
And we gotta work, we gotta feel (we gotta feel)
Let's open our eyes and do whatever it takes
We gotta work, we gotta feel (we gotta feel)

Let's open our eyes, oh-woh

And sing this song to all of our age
For these are the questions we've got to face
For in this cycle that we call life
We are the ones who are next in line

Sing this song for me
Sing this song for me

    this was our grad song in highschool 1995, I cant believe that I will be looking back to this song now that I will be given a new position that I feel I am not ready for emotionally. but I guess I'm next in line.

    For me it means that, we are one controlling our own life and for every decisions we make we are responsible for it. And those choices and decisions we made affects our lives as we grow old. So everything is up to you. So you have to think twice and take responsibilities on every we do

    This song really made me look back. Yes we do create our own history. Nothing is given. We all do what is in us now. We have to prepare for all we want. Though things may not always be in our way but if we do strive for it would it if it's meant to be.

    God gives us life,so we must give importance to ourselves. Not only for the sake of ourselves but for the sake of other person too. As for now that we have still our life,we have to do things which can make everyone happy. Do good things to the fullest... Aiai
