When I was younger,
My heart had a hunger,
For feelings of every kind

Down through the years,
I shed hardly a tear,
Was it just that I hadn't the time?

World full of sorrow,
Holds pain for tomorrow,
The future don't look very bright

Down through the ages,
We're tearing the pages,
While there's more of the book still to write

(Chorus)
All these years I never asked why
All the tears I never could cry
You don't miss the water till the well runs dry
And you've nothing left to show
So heads are gonna roll

Met an old woman
She knew I was coming
By the leaves in her teacup that night

Took pains to explain
What I found on my way
And the things that I left way behind

(Chorus x2)

Yeah, you don't miss the water till the well runs dry
All these years I never asked why...
