Look out of the window

What is passing you by.

If you really want this bad enough.

You’re young and good looking

The keys to the kingdom.

Sooner or later

And before your very eyes

Old soul on young shoulders.

How you’ll look when you’re older.

Times’ fickle card game with you and I.

You have to take your chances,

The book of forgiveness.

Sooner or later

And before your very eyes
