I am growing older; creeping lines and silver hair
I know that life’s not fair
It’ll lift you up, throw you down
And sometimes slip away

Days when hope is poison
And we’re in the bleakest season
The future’s fractured and unkind
Still pieces of it shine

We go on
We take our time, take our steps
Take our steps one by one
And carry on

Skies too much like highways, bringing months in every hour
Kicking mud through snow
You’re lifted up, lowered down
We have to walk away

We go on
Take our time
Take our steps one by one
That’s how it’s done
Keeping on, the world spins on
We take our time, take a breath and carry on

I am growing older; creeping lines and silver hair
I know that life’s not fair
It’s fractured and unkind but pieces of it shine
