Hello there
You tell me
You got a lot of real respect
For my kind
The Old Timers
I'm old enough to know the rules.
But nobody gave me the book
I had to learn to improvise myself
'N time 'n time I let me down
Until I learned the hard way
How to feel
What's real

Chorus:

But you get one chance at a life
To give it all and get it right
'N after all this time in mine
Everything I thought I knew
Was tellin' me
To give it up
And leave it all behind
But you get endless second chances
To take it One Chance at a Time

For love 'n money
I made a lot-a dumb mistakes
In my time
Believe me
I proved and proved it
I can't believe I'm gonna prove it again
It's time to reinvent myself
But where the hell does the fire come from
When makin' it don't make it anymore?

Chorus

Time and Love
I been lookin' all my life
For time and love
Hoping a breeze will come 'n take me
I been waiting
And waiting
And sailing in one place
Like a bird against the wind
Afraid to turn and fly away
