Sometimes I think that my life has just begun
And someday I'll have my time in the sun
But the best days of my life have past
And they went by so very fast
It scares me to think where my life has gone
Where my life has gone, and that I may
Never see tomorrow's dawn

I remember sitting on the swings
I was nearly seven years old
Contemplating, planning out my dreams
Which of course would later be sold
It would be happiness and grace
Happiness and grace, then wake on this track of life
To find that I am losing the race

I find myself looking forward into time
Do as they say and you will be fine
Don't try to argue and don't try to complain
Hide your anger and your pain
It scares me to think where my life has gone
Where my life has gone, and that I may
Never see tomorrow's dawn

I remember when I used to be so young and so carefree
Now my life is filled with problems and responsibilites
Getting home by four to watch Richie Rich and Scooby-Doo
Was all that ever worried me, it was all I had to do
Looking at the older kids, always thought they were so great
Saw them hanging out at parties, always got to stay out late
By the time I reached that age the novelty had all but faded
Now that we are old and grey we've become annoyed and jaded

And thinking back to the time when I was young
I thought it would be so fun
To grow up and do anything I want
It didn't turn out the way that I thought
It would be happiness and grace
Happiness and grace, then wake on this track of life
To find that I am losing the race
