Blink of an eye


I was a dreamer when I was young
Lying on the grass and staring at the sky
I never felt that time was moving on
I thought it would stay the same for all my life

Playing games under christmas lights
When the world was warm and bright
But that time just seemed to fly
In the blinking of an eye

I was a joker when I was at school
Smoking grass laughing and getting high
I never cared about nothing at all
I thought it would stay the same for all my life

Kissing girls under summer nights
When the world was big and bright
But that time just passed me by
In the blinking of an eye

I left home at seventeen
Tried to get into the music scene
It wore me down like an old machine
I learned how to work and forgot how to dream

I fell in love at twenty one
Down in the grass getting lost in her wide eyes
Wouldn't have traded for anyone
I thought it would stay the same for all my life

But I was just too young to know
I let her down and let her go
And that time taught me how to cry
In the blinking of an eye
Yeah in the blinking of an eye

I hit the road at twenty three
Stood in the grass singing songs for passers by
Footloose and fancy free
I thought it would stay the same for all my life

Oh and practice taught me how to preach
I touched a world so out of reach
And that time it lived and died
In the blinking of an eye

It all changed at twenty nine
My boat came in and the stars aligned
I watched a simple song of mine
Travel the world in the blink of an eye

Now I'm here at thirty six
Down in the grass trying to make sense of it all
Maybe there's no easy fix
The highest highs come with the hardest falls
See the good times come and go
Like the people that you know
And all you can do is try
For it's gone in the blink of an eye
