"Borrowed Time" as written by and John Lennon....
When I was younger
Living confusion and deep despair
When I was younger
Living illusion of freedom and power

When I was younger
Full of ideas and broken dreams (my friend)
When I was younger ah hah
Everything simple but not so clear

Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow
Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow

Now I am older
The more that I see the less that I know for sure
Now I am older
The future is brighter and now is the hour

Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow
Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow

Good to be older
Would not exchange a single day or a year
Good to be older
Less complications everything clear

Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow
Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow

    General Comment"Oh yes, it all seemed so bloody easy then
    you know like what to wear very serious like
    am i gunna get rid of the pimples
    does she really love me
    all that crap

    General CommentI think the message here is really layed out simply, he's happy being older in comparison to the confusion of being a teenager.
    I wish whoever typed the lyrics included the shit you had to worry and the jibberish at the end, that's the best part!
