Life is like a hand full of ice. You get so caught up in how cool it is and how it feels that you become numb and you don't realize that it is slowly fading away.
Staring at the clock, tick, tick
Time is running out, I have to admit
The moonlight hits, the stars throw a fit
These thoughts are coming at me like a Quarterback blitz
These faces I see, will become distant memories
No more friends, no more family
Living in reality
When you’re young you don’t think this will come
But as you get older you get closer to the beating of the drum
Sometimes I wonder how life will be after
I graduate and have to write my own fate
Will I go to college and pursue a degree?
Or will I get a job working at dollar tree?
Will I grow up to be famous and see new sights?
Or will it be a struggle to keep on the lights
Sometimes I have ask about the kids in class
Will I see them again or will they live in the past?
You only live once; they say that’s the motto
But I want to know about the day after tomorrow
Some nights I get up and start pacing around the room
Life seems stressful when I think about June
I can’t wait to walk the stage and get my diploma
But I really don’t want to be out on my own
Is this really it? No more childhood
Boy, being a young adult doesn't sound that good
There will be no more Mommy; there will be no more daddy
You’ll be around people who will gladly fail you
And tell you that your nothing, you know the kind of people who are always starting something
It will not be that long before I’m a grown up and I have to own up to my mistakes
Working long hours without any breaks
Life has been a joy ride and it’s been fun
But I realized that this is the last one
The numbers don’t lie, a man isn't supposed to cry
But it’s hard for anyone to say their final goodbye
