lyrics

There's nothing new under the sun
There's nothing that's never been done
So what's the poin, when all is meaningless
Maybe I'll write another song
Maybe I'll smile and just move on
I worry how my boys will, remember me when they're old

Everything in life loses meaning when
I forget to make You the center
Told myself I was just a young soul
But I'm old enough to know

You might as well work for the wind
We never quite fill up our hands
Our days are numbered and we all fall down
And when we fall who picks us up?
And when we drink who fills our cup?
Everything we do now until the end will be known

Everything in life loses meaning when
I forget to make You the center
Told myself I was just a young soul
But I'm old enough to know

One day born and one day I'll die
Keep my mouth shut until it's time
To speak the words that could heal or kill
To tear it down or to help rebuild

To find what's lost or to give up the search
As wars rage on, to cry "peace on Earth"
There's a time to love, a time to hate
To gather stones or to throw them away

Tears fall down but before too long
I'll be laughing, dancing to another song
Do I take her hand or do I refrain?
To keep this love and not waste it away

Everything in life loses meaning when
I forget to make You the center
Told myself I was just a young soul
But I'm old enough to know
