I remember when we had a lot of things to do
Impressed by all the words we read
And the heroes that we knew.
Climb on your your dream, a dream of our own making
To find a place that we could later lose
To whatever time would bring.

We were seventeen and the cakeman was affecting you
Moving you to greater things (in a lesser way)
You had to prove.
The clock struck summertime. You were going round in circles now.
Wishing you were seventeen. At twenty-one, it was a long time gone.
And now here you are. You're locked in your own excuse.
The circle's getting smaller every day.
You're busy planning the next fifty years.
