Don't Blink

When we are young we are told 
"don't let youth pass you by"
That before we know it life will pass 
"in the blink of an eye"

As a child we are invincible, we live 
life day to day,
We don't care what tomorrow brings 
we only want to play. 

Teen years, we experiment with sex, 
drugs and crime. 
Not worried about repercussions, we 
still have lots of time. 

After this we get a job just starting 
out our life,
Get married and have kids, with your 
husband or wife. 

In your 30s now, so many 
responsibilities for you,
Dreams have to be put on hold, 
there's just too much to do. 

My advice to you my friends is never 
tempt  your fate,
Live your dreams when you can, you 
don't ever have to wait. 

Cause the day will come when you 
wake up, and you can't help but 
That "why did life go by so fast" and 
"why'd I have to blink"
