We're sure between us all
We own the world that we can see
But it was there before eternity
And the one who made it all
Wanted me to count each passing chime
For him a thousand years is dinner time

Threescore and ten will we come back again
Ask me what I'll have to show
And I won't know
And it'll hurt me so

But until then the flood will sweep away
Each tiny yesterday
I will spend each one in my own sleepy way
Like the morning grass that springs up
Beneath my lazy feet
The goodness dies off in the evening's heat

Threescore and ten will we come back again
Ask me what I'll have to show
And I won't know
And it'll hurt me so

But until then I'll wonder why
My troubles won't leave me alone
I won't live a life that's not my own
It's like a book I put down and can't take up again
So full of secrets I will not explain

Threescore and ten will we come back again
Ask me what I'll have to show
And I won't know
And it'll hurt me so

But until then I'll live out my
Threescore and ten
No maybe four
And every extra year will hurt me more
And those years I'll soon cut off
And we will fly we know not where
Before we've run to count we have got there

Threescore and ten will we come back again
Ask me what I'll have to show
And I won't know
And it'll hurt me so

But until then I'll live out my
Threescore and ten
Or maybe four
And every extra year will hurt me more
And those years I'll soon cut off
And we will fly we know not where
Before we run to count we have got there

Threescore and ten will we come back again
Ask me what I'll have to show
And I won't know
And it'll hurt me so
