"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 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!
