what a shame to have this life, what an honor.

What a shame

That life passes, huh?

Doesn’t matter if you’re 12, 57, or 89.

One day you’re this

And the next you’re that.

 

What a shame

That the hands of time keep ticking.

You can’t fight those hands.

You can’t bargain with the mirror.

Not with fists, not with money.

 

What a shame

That life gallops right on past you.

Like Secretariat 

Winning that Triple Crown.

But in two years time

He was nothing but an OTTB.

 

What a shame

That I’ll grow old

Then you’ll grown old.

That I’ll die

Then you’ll die.

 

And life will still be there.

But it’s nothing we could ever reach.

 

But what an honor

That life passes.

That the hands of time keep ticking.

That life gallops right on past you.

That I’ll grow old, then you will.

That I’ll die, then you will.
