"Ten Years Time" as written by Louisa Bobb and Jonathan Shorten....
Do you have a vision?
Do you have a goal?
I'm watching you shrugging your shoulders, telling me you just don't know!
Do you get emotional?
Is there something you're passionate about?
I can tell that you're still searching, still trying to work it all out...
It takes time... take your time!
Um hum. You will know when it feels right...

Where you gonna be in ten years time?
Will you be happy with the way you've been living your life?
Will you be alright?
'cause when you're looking back to now on the years gone by
Will there be something that you say that you should have done right... in your life?

What would you fight for? For what do you stand?
How will you go about it? Do you have a master plan?
What are your demons? How much for your soul?
Have you found religion... and gone down that road?
I guess we all need something to believe...
Times haven't changed... that's how its gotta be!

Where you gonna be in ten years time?
Will you be happy with the way you've been living your life?
Will you be alright?
'cause when you're looking back to now on the years gone by
Will there be something that you say that you should have done right?
We're talking about your life!

Are you a dreamer? Tell me all your dreams!
Can you say honestly... what you want to be...
What you do when your back's against the wall?
Would you stand on your two feet? Would you admit defeat?
These are the times you need to be strong...
Don't you know? Don't you know that it's hard!
Have you learned to find a way...
You gotta find a way to carry on...

Where you gonna be in ten years time
Will you be happy with the way you've been living your life?
Will you be alright?
Yeah… when you're looking back to now on the years gone by
Will there be something that you say that you should have done right
We're talking about your life! Your life!!

Where you gonna be in ten years time
Will you be happy way you've been living your life?
Will you be alright?
Yeah… when you're looking back to now on the years gone by
Will there be something that you say that you should have done right?
We're talking about your life! Your life!!

Where you gonna be in ten years time?
Will you be all right?
Tell me will you get it right? Get it right?

Where you gonna to be in ten years time?
Will you be happy with the way that you're living your life?
Do you feel it being right?

Where you gonna be in ten years time?
Will you be all right?
Tell me will you get it right? Get it right?
[FADE]

    General CommentI think this song's about someone asking another person asking them about their life (and religion?), and encouraging them to look inside themselves and follow their dreams no matter what happens, so that they'll be happy when they reflect in the future.

    General CommentThis song is absolutely amazing. It's about making someone think about the future, where they want to go, where they want to be. Gabrielle herself says that "it's a question we've asked about ourselves and other people". I guess to some extent this is true - we all think about the future and this songs pulls it all together in 3.44 minutes (or 4.14 minutes if it's the album version).
