lyrics

Did you know that it's a blessing to age?
Yet we throw all our beauty away
I used to fear death, now I want to delay it
I fear it more now, I'm defiant, can't bow out

Did you know its a blessing to age?
Yet we throw all our beauty away...
I used to fear death and I want to delay it - I fear it more now

I wake, I wake, I wake with shivers in the dark
Can't pacify myself to surrender my heart
I pace, I pace, I pace to know I haven't stopped
So piercing is this dance macabre

I forget to live until I am dying
I resent to give when I'm not supplied
I'm so selfish, don't want to confide
I'm compact, in my mind, hope to change with time

I see things,
I feel beauty in words, not so unorthodox or poignantly versed
We conceit ourselves to conceal the worst
Lose the truth sometimes, continue the search

Is it there to find, if its there to find- we'll find it together
If it's there to find, why get left behind - unite and be better ( we all have it, we all have it, we all have it)
Is it there to find, if its there to find - we'll find it together
If it's there to find, why get left behind - unite and be better

Did you know that, did you know that, did you know that - its a blessing to age?
Not that it's easy on the way

Is it there to find, if its there to find- we'll find it together
If it's there to find, why get left behind - unite and be better ( we all have it, we all have it, we all have it)
Is it there to find, if its there to find - we'll find it together
If it's there to find, why get left behind - unite and be better

Bah - bah - bah - bahpah bahpah
Bah - bah - Bahpah
