I used to be so young and invincible.
The mistakes of my youth
are finally catching up to me.
The face that stares back in the mirror
should carry nothing but pride.

As the days go by
it's getting harder to hold my head up high.

I've never been so tired.
I've never felt so weak, but I swear to you,
I swear to you that I'm not giving up.
Never been so tired. Never felt so weak.
My storied life is coming to a graceful descent, descend.

I've seen peace end, and battles begin.
I've seen peace end, and battles begin.

Go!

I won't forget the lives I've touched.
I won't forget the ones I've loved.

As the days go by
it's getting harder to hold my head up high.
As the days go by
it's getting harder to hold my head up high.

I used to think I'd last forever.
I used to think I'd last forever.
I used to think I'd last forever.
I used to think I'd last forever.
Forever.

Now I'm praying for the light to just carry me away.
I'm praying for the light to just carry me away
Say goodnight.
Say goodnight.
Say goodbye.
Say goodbye.
This is my time to be with my Lord.

    General Commenti beleive thejoysoflife is correct. but theres more to it. it seems as this person is getting older and close to passing on and looking back on his life and things hes done.

    at the end:
    "say goodbye
    this is my time to be with my Lord"

    hes finally passing into the "light" which is mentioned a few lines before.

    jmo. feel free to comment or criticize. im not the best at analyzing songs
