Growing Up

You think youíve seen it all come and go
The best times of your life gone screaming by
And now you sit here all alone
And wonder who you are and why
Still young but feel so old
Still strong but feel so frail
Still alive but youíd never know
You act as though your lifeís at an end
You were the top of the heap for oh so long
Every one of your wishes came true
A huge smile and bright shining eyes
You had it all brought to you
On a silver tray
So tarnished now
And those shining eyes
Have seen it all change somehow
So you weep for your youth gone by
As though that was the only time
But that was just the start of things
Get up and get busy
Youíve got to kick out the blocks
Itís not all gone by
Get up and dance
Youíve still got time left here
Grow up
You havenít grown old
Get back in the game
You can still have it all
Once again
All there is has changed to a different thing
As you grow older the prizes change
So get out of your bed and into the game
Itís been going on while you acted dead
