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"
