My brother Kyle turned me on to Chris Smithers great song. Since then I've wanted to make my own version. Here it is. Thanks for watching, listening, and grooving.

Lyrics:
If I were young again, I'd pay attention
To that little-known dimension
That tastes of endless time
It's just like water, it runs right through our fingers
But the flavor of it lingers
Like a rich, red wine

In those days we were single -- and we lived 'em one by one
Now we hardly see 'em -- they don't walk - they run
But I got plenty left I've set my sight on
Don't wait up - Leave the light on
I'll be -- home - soon

I've never seen my life in such a hurry -
But if I start to worry --
I get left behind
It's like a party, but you don't get invitations --
and there's just one destination
You better be on time

For years we rhymed in couplets -
And we sang 'em two by two
Now we hardly rhyme at all -- but here's a few
And if they hurt, there's bullets left to bite on
Don't wait up - Leave the light on -
I'll be -- home - soon

That drummer in my head needs inspiration
There's a lack of syncopation --
the holes need to align.
It's just so hard to leave these cages that we think in
By stages we just sink in -
to a slow decline

For years we lived in waltz time --
and we danced three by three
Now it's hard to dance, but if you'll stick with me --
We've got what we need to spend the night on -
Don't wait up - Leave the light on -
I'll be -- home - soon

These races that we've run were not for glory -
No moral to this story --
We run for peace of mind
But the race we're running now is never-ending.
Since space and time are bending,
There's no finish line -

But I'll live to be a hundred -
I was born in '44 -
39 to go, but I ain't keepin' score -

I've been left for dead before - but I still fight on -- Don't wait up -- Leave the light on
I'll be home soon

I been left for dead before - but I still fight on Don't wait up -- Leave the light on
I'll be home soon
