As time goes by
No need to hang around and cry
Shame no one ever told me
All you need is to feel free

My mind goes frantic
It builds up inside,develope panic
Unleash that tension
You don`t need to mention
I`ll be climbing that wall at high speed
And keep myself on that track until my fingers bleed

I need your touch
The one that give me so much
Gotta do things your way
There`s no real recommendations to lifes`highway
Reliving history`s melancholic events
Wouldn`t change more than it prevents

As time goes by
No need to hang around and cry
Shame no one told me
All you need is to feel free

Got the idea to this write from someone I worked with a few years back.Never got
his life on the roll,always stuck in what people would say or think about what he 
was doing.Guess we all feel that to a certain point,but my message in this write is
to live while we`re here.Life`s too short to second guess everything we do.All though
I think common sense should be the anchor in whatever actions we do.

    Great advice Arild and the message at the bottom underscores the wisdom. Other people's opinions have destroyed some unlucky souls that weren't strong enough to turn their back on the criticism. Youv'e got some great lines in this! :)

    Arild, you did WONDERFULLY with this topic. I really like this. GREAT job . It made me think it could be turned into a country song or something with that last stanza same as the first.

    Powerful message from Mr. Norway! You write with great abandon and it's refreshing, Arild. Love the rhyming pattern in the middle of the stanzas...nice touch...So glad that I worry LESS about what others think than I did when I was younger...yes, life is way tooo short! Gwendolen

    Great write, and very good advice Arild, think I will book me some sun sea and sand, away from this freezing cold, and like you say, life is too short not to enjoy and have fun. Love Elizabeth

    Somehow even at times when we know we should live for ourselves we tend to worry what others might think. love the message in this write of yours Arild.. As for that write it has glimpses of real life in them, but like most of my emotions they do make things better when I put them on paper. Thanks for the shoulder my friend, it is appreciated :) hugs Wilma
