The Lyrics

(50 second acoustic guitar intro)

We're aging, don't have a remedy
Fading, like the setting sun
Oh time is always flowin'
live a while you'll see

Ooh.., that this does suck
this sucks, it sucks

Take the time to love
Make some time for laughter
Anytime for pla-a-y
Before you get too old

Ev'ryone should try
Happier thereafter
Even if you blunder
Regrets they really blow

Make your dreams come true
Don't leave them just in writing
I still have my dreams
And its time to make them so

(1:00 long instrumental/solo interlude)

Hello to my plans
And goodbye to my wishing
Makin' many plans
And see my hope it grows

Heavy are these words
That don't mean they're depressin'
Guess its 'bout aging
I'm feeling kinda old, oh, oh, oh, oh
We've really got to go, oh
I'm feelin kind of grown...

You know I shouldn't, know I shouldn't, know I could
