Life In One Day

In the style of

Howard Jones

Lyrics

the old man said to me
said don't always
take life
so seriously
play the flute
and dance and sing
your song

try and enjoy
the here and now
the future will take
care of itself
somehow
the grass is never
greener over there

time will wear
away the stone
gets the
hereditary bone

don't try to live
your life in one day
don't go speed
your time away
don't try to live
your life in one day
don't go speed
your time away

the old man said to me
said you can't
change the world
single-handedly
raise a glass
enjoy the scenery

pretend the water
is champagne
and fill my glass
again and again
while the wolves
are gathering
'round your door

time will wear
away the stone
gets the
hereditary bone

don't try to live
your life in one day
don't go speed
your time away
don't try to live
your life in one day
don't go speed
your time away

don't try to live
your life in one day
don't go speed
your time away
don't try to live
your life in one day
don't go speed
your time away

the old man said to me
said don't always
take life
so seriously
play the flute
and dance and sing
your song

try and enjoy
the here and now
the future will take
care of itself
somehow
the grass is never
greener over there

time will wear
away the stone
gets the
hereditary bone

i tried to live
my life in one day
i bit off more
than i can chew

wolves are
gathering
'round my door
i tried to live
my life in one day

don't try to live
your life in one day
don't go speed
your time away

don't try to live
your life in one day
don't go speed
your time away

don't try to live
your life in one day
don't go speed
your time away
don't try to live
your life in one day
don't go speed
your time away
