Time, time, time
And see what's become of me
While I look around
For my possibilities
I was so hard to please

Look around
Leaves are brown
And the sky, is a hazy shade of winter

Could a Salvation Army band
Down by the riverside
It's bound to be a better ride
Than what you've got planned
Carry a cup in your hand

Look around
Leaves are brown
And the sky, is a hazy shade of winter

Hang on to your hopes my friends
That's the easy thing to say
If your hopes should pass away
Simply pretend, that you can build them again

Look around
Can't decide
If it's alright
It's the springtime of my life, life, life…

Look around
Leaves are brown
And the sky, it's a hazy shade of winter

Look around
Leaves are brown
There's a patch of snow on the ground

Look around
Leaves are brown
There's a patch of snow on the ground

Look around
Leaves are brown
There's a patch of snow on the ground

Look around
Leaves are brown
There's a patch of snow on the ground

    General CommentThis is a great cover of a classic Simon and Garfunkel song. I'm pretty sure the song is about being in your early 20's and it is kind of like a point where you can either get on the path to achieving your dreams or you can just let em slip by...something like that.
