when the sun is almost overhead
we'll know its greatest fear
is that twilight’s inevitable and the
dark it draws more near

metaphors are scarier than the truth
all the things they know
the fact that wind and rain shall always be
more than they’ll show
more than they’ll show
more than they’ll show

and I only wish that on the day I day
they’ll be that many people by my side
who will say such amazing things
about who I was and how I lived

and I pledge to you that I will live my life
so that the preacher doesn’t have to lie
and I pledge to you that I will live my life
so that the preacher doesn’t have to lie
and I pledge to you that I will live my life
so that the preacher doesn’t have to lie
just like Glen did

well the sun is almost overhead
what have I done
to warrant love and respect
from anyone?

wind and rain shall come and go as they please
they’ll never know
the only thing I’m more scared of than the sun
is getting old
is getting old
is getting old
