Poems, Prayers and Promises

歌詞

I've been lately thinking

About my life's time

 

All the things i've done

And how it's been

 

And i can't help believing

In my own mind

 

I know i'm gonna hate to see it end

 

I've seen a lot of sunshine

 

Slept out in the rain

 

Spent a night or two all on my own

 

I've known my lady's pleasures

 

Had myself some friends

 

And spent a time or two in my own home

 

And i have to say it now

It's been a good life all in all

It's really fine

To have a chance to hang around

 

And lie there by the fire

 

And watch the evening tire

While all my friends and my old lady

Sit and pass the pipe around

 

And talk of poems and prayers and promises

And things that we believe in

 

How sweet it is to love someone

How right it is to care

How long it's been since yesterday

 

What about tomorrow

 

And what about our dreams

And all the memories we share

 

The days they pass so quickly now

Nights are seldom long

 

And time around me whispers when it's cold

 

The changes somehow frighten me

Still i have to smile

 

It turns me on to think of growing old

 

For though my life's been good to me

There's still so much to do

 

So many things my mind has never known

 

I'd like to raise a family

 

I'd like to sail away

 

And dance across the mountains on the moon

 

I have to say it now

It's been a good life all in all

It's really fine

To have the chance to hang around

 

And lie there by the fire

 

And watch the evening tire

While all my friends and my old lady

Sit and pass the pipe around

 

And talk of poems and prayers and promises

And things that we believe in

 

How sweet it is to love someone

 

How right it is to care

How long it's been since yesterday

 

What about tomorrow

 

What about our dreams

And all the memories we share
