lyrics

I don't know who I'll be at 28
Will I desire finer things
Hope I've gotten there too late
Will I still have the hope that I'll make those pearly gates?
Is that who I'll be at 28?

I don't know who I'll be at 33
Will I have more bills and less time being free?
Will I buy a plot of land or move back to the sea?
Is that who I'll be at 33?

I know I've got a lot to get to
Many more roads and cities to pursue
I hope I give a lot and take a little less each time
Close tight my eyes and enjoy the ride

I don't know who I'll be at 45
Will I still spin records just content with getting by?
Will I still enjoy the simple things that money just can't buy?
I hope that's who I'll be at 45

I don't know who I'll be at 64
Will I stare into a TV screen until I start to snore?
Will I talk with my children about when our country was at war?
Is that who I'll be at 64

I know I've got a lot to get to
Many more roads and cities to pursue
I hope I give a lot and take a little less each time
Close tight my eyes and enjoy the ride

I know exactly who I am
I don't spend my time penning perfect plans
I've got just what I need inside of these two hands
I know exactly who I am

I like this person I've become
It took me many years to learn to be young
I know my time here as only just become
and I like this person I've become

I know I've got a lot to get to
Many more roads and cities to pursue
I hope I give a lot and take a little less each time
Close tight my eyes and enjoy the ride
Close tight my eyes and enjoy the ride
