i will fall down from my feet
and i will beat the ground and look up at the sky
i will sit alone and thing
and i will keep on asking "why? why? why?"

and when my mouth is getting dry, i will drink
and when i have to let it out, i will sing
just like i've always done

and so i'll keep on waking up when the sun comes in
wish that we could stay in bed all day
but there's too much to be done before the sun goes down
and makes it hard to see why i showered, dressed, and ate

and when i'm done with being awake, i will sleep
and when my lover has to leave, i will weep
just like i've always done

and i'll try growing old with grace
cherish every single wrinkle on my face
'cause that's something you can't fake
and i'll be proud that i've survived so many days

and when i'm done with all my work, i will rest
and when i'm done with being alive, i'll be dead
just like i've always done.
