"Such A Short Amount Of Time"

-

I wasn't put here to breakdown and cry

But all the tears must be removed from my eyes

The lesson I need to learn must hurt me

If I am ever going to learn a thing

When the fear has strapped me to my seat

The pain will come, and never leave

Thee oceans have their power over me

And I can't change what's set in stone

But I can do more than piss and moan

I must do what it takes to prepare for death

For when it comes there'll be no life left

To live while I can is all I have

Missing out on life is my biggest fear

But freezing up is not thee answer

No time to waste if any day could be my last

Falling from the skies of love

Is never a woman who I should wait for

I've waited and waited, but can't wait forever

I'll have some fun I can enjoy alone

Life is calling, I have no choice

Sadness doesn't have to be my voice
