"Life" as written by Steve Allen, Chris Neil, Philip Lovering and Neil Worthington....
Another page of history
Another failed and hopeless year
Of wasted life and wasted time
Long ago you sang a tune
Of running from a painful youth
And now it's dry, you're wondering why

Talk to me, reveal how your life must seem
All the wonderful things that you could never achieve
Now you're out of time, your life is dry, you're wondering why

Remember how it used to be
You were young and love was cheap
And every night was fire and wine
Now you face another year
In a lonely state, in an empty place
Wiping dry your crying eyes
Wipe and dry your crying eyes

Talk to me, reveal how your life has been
All the wonderful things that you could never achieve
Now you're out of time, your life is dry, you're wondering why

I lost the rainbow
Behind that cloud, I lost the rainbow there
It's hard getting over all the rain
It's hard getting older all the same

    General CommentThe music of this song is awesome. Very dissonant, but cohesive.

    In the refrain it says " reveal how lost your life must seem"

    This reminds me of an old man who is at the end of his life, and is now regretting that he did not do all the things he wanted to.

    General CommentI think it have not to be an old man. There can be nearly everytime things that are not achieved, like with 30 I want my own business, house, family or something else.

    Song MeaningI think it's about lost artistic ambition, and sitting around feeling miserable.
