So soon we, so soon we, so soon we're too old to carry
We knew we, we knew we, we knew we only had a little while
In the middle, in the middle, in the middle keep ticking over
Before you know it, before you know it, before you know it, parent a parent

To have it all and still want more
One things for sure we're all getting older
So we take a lover waiting in the corner
Before you know it, pushing up the daisies

And we go back to where we came from
Like those before and those to come
And know it's the ever and the more
And again and again and again

In the end nothing comes easy
So you find a way to take a little with you
For the ones you love, there if they need to
Pharaoh, they're not coming with you.

And we go back to where we came from
Like those before and those to come
And know it's the ever and the more
And again and again and again

So soon we're too old to carry
We knew we only had a little while
In the middle keep ticking over
Before you know it, parent a parent

And we go back to where we came from
Like those before and those to come
And know it's the ever and the more
And again and again and again

    Young lads have a very much wiser understanding of life - and when we have it all, it's still not enough, then we're gone. Ad infinitum.
