Still Some More To Go (Buddy Wasisname)

Sliding down the Barracks Hill
beyond the speed of light,
I didn't know the heart
could beat that fast;
Frozen tears on crimson cheeks
and toes gone numb with cold,
But we didn't know those moments wouldn't last.

Gone are the days and lost are the ways,
As memories they're frozen in time;
Now the hills seem so much steeper
and the ride costs so much more,
But hang on 'cause
there's still some more to go.

Sneaking in on apple trees,
pitch dark and numb with fear.
Driven by the devil's urge for thrills;
Stomach pains and muscle strains
and a fear of mother's wrath,
But we didn't know those moments wouldn't last.

Gone are the days and lost are the ways,
As memories they're frozen in time;
Now the hills seem so much steeper
and the ride costs so much more,
But hang on 'cause
there's still some more to go.

Blowing in from Goose Bay Head
with a sail rigged to the punt,
Singing, laughing, free from every care;
A northeast breeze it was total ease,
we might be home by dark,
But we didn't know those memories wouldn't last.

Gone are the days and lost are the ways,
As memories they're frozen in time;
Now the hills seem so much steeper
and the ride costs so much more,
But hang on 'cause
there's still some more to go.

Rolling in the sawdust bank
and jumping in the bay,
Playing cowboys, swimming in the brook;
Summer never ended,
there were days as long as months,
But we didn't know those memories wouldn't last.

Gone are the days and lost are the ways,
As memories they're frozen in time;
Now the hills seem so much steeper
and the ride costs so much more,
But hang on 'cause
there's still some more to go.
