"Funny How It Fades Away" as written by and Tony Scalzo....
Those days when our hearts were as big as the sun
Turn around with a smile for everyone
That feeling's a memory
Funny how it fades away
You won't see those pale grays returning to blues
The colors will wash out as I shrink in my shoes
And I won't always live and breathe
Watch me as I fade away

We wake in the morning and work all day
We dress up in the evening with nothing to say
Just like a candle burning bright
Burning like forever then it fades away

Who on this planet would ever refuse
The chance of a lifetime to love and lose
When time is of no importance
Have you seen it slip away?

We wake in the morning and work all day
We dress up in the evening with nothing to say
Just like a candle burning bright
Burning like forever then it fades away

We wake in the morning and work all day
We dress up in the evening with nothing to say
Just like a candle burning bright
Burning like forever then it fades away

    General CommentThis song emphasises the temporality of everything in life. The other significant point here in the lyrics is the question "Who on this planet would ever refuse the chance of a lifetime to love and lose...?" If everything is so temporary, including our lives, then why do we waste it away instead of taking advantage of it and truly experiencing it while it lasts?
