When it doesn't rain it snores.
Yes the cookie crumbles but in who's hand?
All things said and all things done,
Life is short

Oh I am young but I have aged.
Waited long to seize the day
All things said and plenty done,
Life is short

Oh, Oh, Could this be,
Oh, Oh, Could this be the day I've waited for?

Another door to peek in through.
The floor is filthy,
But the couch is clean.
At the end of the day,
That's another day gone.
Life is short, oh, life is short.

Oh, Oh, Could this be,
Oh, Oh, Could this be the day I've waited for?

Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, etc.

Oh I am young but I have aged.
Waited long to seize the day.
All things said and plenty done,
Oh I am young but I have a past.
Traveled far to find the start.
Yes I am scared and I've been burnt.
But life is short.

Oh, Oh, Could this be,
Oh, Oh, Could this be the day I've waited for?

    General CommentI can't tell you how many times I've asked myself if this is the day I've waited for... There are times when I deliberate about doing something, over and over and over and then, well, it's too late. Slowly but surely though I am keeping in mind that life is short indeed and sometimes you just have to go for it. ~ Great song all around!

    General Commentmake the most of each day.
    treasure the moments.
    don't waste chances waiting around.
    they're all short.
    & life is short too.

    brilliant song.

    General CommentI love this song. I think it's so well written.

    Oh I am young but I have aged.
    Waited long to seize the day.
    All things said and plenty done,
    Oh I am young but I have a past.
    Traveled far to find the start.
    Yes I am scared and I've been burnt.
    But life is short.

    General Commentthere's some mistakes in those lyrics. these are correct ones:

    When it doesn't rain it snores
    Yeah the cookie crumbles but in who's hand?
    All things said and all things done
    Life is short

    Oh I am young but I have aged
    Waited long to seize the day
    All things said and plenty done...life's too short

    Ooooh could this be....
    Ooooh could this be the day I've waited for?

    Another door to peek in through
    The floor is filthy
    But the couch is clean
    At the end of the day
    That's another day gone
    Life is short....Ooo life is short

    Ooooh
    Could this be....
    Ooooh
    Could this be the day I've waited for?

    Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba...

    Oh I am young but I have aged
    Waited long to seize the day
    All things said and plenty done
    Oh I am young but I have a past
    Travelled far to find the start
    Yes I am scared and I've been burnt
    But life is short

    Ooooh
    Could this be...
    Ooooh
    Could this be the day I've waited for?

    Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba...

    General Commentlove it.
    reminds me that i'm young & should make the most out of all the opportunities that come my way...because life is short. and it could be the thing i'm waiting for.
    and turns out sometimes it is.
    very happy song.
