From 2009. Only a fool has no fear...the challenge is to overcome that fear and live our lives the way we want to. Sometimes easier said than done.
For those of you who have jammed with me in the past enough, you'll probably catch a snippet of that one riff I always tend to throw in on keys. I had to throw it in just one last time...It's retired now. I promise.
Stolen moments never moved so slow/As when I found you digging in that hole/The one I asked you for all those years ago/When I was young and had the time to blow/Now I can't release my mind from fear/I struggle with the things you see so clear/And deeper still I'm lost between my ears/Confined to my mind for all my natural years/I pull myself together/To face another day/Locked in a trance forever/Wasting my life away/Run another mile towards the sun/And take a chance on what you might become/A person who can see more ways than one/And understands that work is never done/I pull myself together/To face another day/Locked in a trance forever/Wasting my life away/I see a little darkness/And it comes creeping in/But in another moment/I'll be asleep again/And I started to dream...
