No one said the world owes me anything
There is nothing in this life that stands secure
I heard us crashing down but
There was no ground in between
Nothing but empty space to pave
The way for us to fall

And as we get older
It seems we get colder
Feeling the air outside
And as we get older
It seems we get colder
The water begins to turn to ice
Tell me where did it go wrong?
When did it slide away?
Still it hasn’t returned to me
Tell me when did it move along?
I felt it slide away
Knowing it was never coming back

Someone said, “It’s funny how the time goes by.”
The pages of my book are coming to a close
The clock is ticking down to its final hour now
Yesterday just doesn’t seem so long ago

And as we get older
It seems we get colder
Feeling the air outside
And as we get older
It seems we get colder
The water begins to turn to ice
Tell me where did it go wrong?
When did it slide away?
Still it hasn’t returned to me
Tell me when did it move along?
I felt it slide away
Knowing it was never coming back
It wasn’t coming back
Not gonna come right back

Now that it’s gone I must accept what never changes (the air is getting colder)
I must accept that I can change this (the air is getting colder)
Now that it’s gone I must accept that I can change this (the air is getting colder)

Now that’s its gone I must accept what never changes
I must accept that I can change this
Now that it’s gone I must accept what never changes
I can change this

Tell me where did it go wrong?
When did it slide away?
Still it hasn’t returned to me
Tell me when did it move along?
I felt it slide away
Knowing it was never coming back
It wasn’t coming back
Not gonna come right back
