Lyrics
Time is all we pass through
All the years I spent lookin for you
But now I'm here, if your feelin' the fear
And I feel it too

All day long,
And if it feels so right,
How could we ever be wrong

Selfish, your gambling, your singing your songs
Oh life is so short but tradition so long
Now if every rich man gave a little back to his home
Maybe we'd see a change, maybe life would be long
But there's a lot to be proven wrong

Time is slipping away
Accept it and you'll get it some day
Everyone burns 'til they come of age
And everyone learns a bit day by day

Oh my love, Oh my home
Well it ain't worth **** 'til your over it
And it's running the gauntlet, it's sink or swim
Sink or swim

Time is slipping away
Accept it and you'll get it some day
Everyone burns 'til they come of age
And everyone learns a bit day by day

Oh my love, Oh my home
Well it ain't worth **** 'til your over it
And it's running the gauntlet, it's sink or swim
Sink or swim
