Graham Nash (c) 1994 Nash Notes, ASCAP


Life is uncertain
Life is unknown
Life is a shot in the dark
Life is a curtain
Always unfolding
Life is an ember and a spark

Don't be a fool
Stay around for a long time
Try and find a dream

Time avoids no one
Time is unkind
Time is a cut to the bone
Time to take care of
Time to unwind
Time is a gift not a loan

Don't be a fool
Stay around for a long time
Try and find a dream

People are endless
People are strangers
People are taken to be friends
People are nervous
Always in danger
People are bound to make amends

Don't be a fool
Stay around for a long time
Try and find a dream
