lyrics

Another year is healing over
Another scar is in its place
They tell me with a frown
“You should be slowing down”
Another chance to quit the race

If it's so true that life is ending
If it's the case there's nothing new
Then why do I rise
With a twinkle in my eyes
If there is nothing more to do, oh

“You're getting old”, or so I’m told
Things have broken down, it’s all been sold
My hand is empty . . And I should fold
But all I see is silver and gold

"Take a rest, let it go - you're not twenty-one, you know."
They say it like they've got something to sell
"You might risk losing friends." Their opinions never end
I tell them all that they can go to hell

I'll never give up looking forward
I'll never ask to stop the ride
There's always a way
To find pleasure in each day
I'll never want to run and hide

"You're getting old”, or so I’m told
Things have broken down, it’s all been sold
My hand is empty . . And I should fold
Oh
“You're getting old”, or so I’m told
Things have broken down, it’s all been sold
My hand is empty . . And I should fold
But all I see is silver and gold
All I see is silver and gold
