The flesh is weak, it goes one way
For these weeks of Winter days
The cold won't go away

Through the young and carefree years
Danger was always near
As your will dissolves in tears of fear

Time will show
What is threshed
Also sown
Like a thrush
Time has flown

If there's another world who knows
Pas these Cadillacs in rows

Close your eyes
Think of someone you loved
And trouble not
Remember all the joy they brought
For life is full of tears and like a shot
It's soon over dear
But love is not

What a nightmare to be young
As the first rays
Of awareness like the sun
Burn the fog away

Life brings death
But smile and draw another breath

And when the disco dance is done
And last night's fun looks sick in the sun
And you don't know what has begun

Close your eyes
Think of someone you loved
And trouble not
Remember all the joy they brought
For life is full of tears and like a shot
It's soon over dear

Love is not enough
To make the waves less rough
But like blood
A little goes a long way
In the darkness of uncertain days
It hurts to love someone this way

Though we seek to know it's stay
The flesh is weak, it goes one way
