The time has come for me to go
To go and never come back anymore
Warm in this womb, I am naked
And suddenly something is happening to me
Somehow, it feels like my life's been a dream
And I'm just now awakening

I'm feeling the slow wind of time, lord
And I feel life sweeping me up
Oh, youth only lasts so long
Then, one day, you wake up and it's gone

I could smell the crepe myrtles as I walked out the door
In my rearview mirror all I could see was the sun
Sweet, like the smell of my mom in the evening
When she tucked me into my bed
So deep within me, it holds and consoles me
Regardless of skin that I shed, whoa

I'm feeling the slow wind of time, lord
And I feel life sweeping me up
Oh, youth only lasts so long
Then, one day, you wake up

And it's gone like fall
It's gone like home
It's gone so far away
Mmm

And I'm feeling the slow wind of time, lord
And I feel life sweeping me up
Oh, youth only lasts so long
Then, one day, you wake up
And one day, I woke up
And one day, you wake up and it's gone
