Grow old and die
An unavoidable cycle that’s mean
But don’t forget to ask why
In all the in between

We all come and go
Bouncing back and forth
Crowding every line we can toe
Forgetting which way is south, and which is north

We all want the same things
And all the same things want us
Wealth. Power. Comfort. Wedding rings
All aboard the unhappiness bus

This is my hope for you and for me
A ballad, a request, encouragement, a plea
Learn to be content wherever we happen to be
For with such, comes an understanding of what it means to be free.
