Started writing when I was ten
And singing when I was four.
Played all kinds of music since then
And listened to a whole lot more.
Never had very much money
Yet a lot of life is free.
Reaching for the milk and honey
But it never bothered me.
Grew up fast and got wise slowly
But practiced what I believed.
Too often I paid my debts and fees
For things I never received.
Kicked around so I hit the road
It all feels the same to me.
Started walking with an easy load
Searching for Infinity.
Some people when they call you friend
They’ll stay that way for life.
They’ll stick with you until the end
To make sure that you survive.
Give them a chance they give you two
No fear; no hate inside.
Not easy to live that way too
At least I can say I tried.
So much older than I was then
I won’t be singing much more.
Placed my bets again and again
But never managed to score.
What I wanted was what I had
Knew it eventually.
Though life doesn’t seem so bad
It was out of focus to me.
