You're only getting older,
And tomorrow is as good as gone;
But you'll keep your chin up, yeah,
Sing your happy songs.
Your God can't help you,
When you ignore all the signs;
And the power of love,
Will turn on you when
you're blissfully blind.

And you say that I'm cynically ill,
You say that I need some happy pills;
But while you're fumbling
for the light in the dark,
I'll build a fire from the fallen star.

It's a treacherous trail,
And only fear will see you through;
'Cause when the bough breaks,
The cradle is falling on you.
When they lower the coffin,
There'll be no dark, no light;
You're only gettin' older,
And I think it's time
that you open your eyes.

And you say that I'm cynically ill,
You say that I need some happy pills;
But while you're fumbling
for the light in the dark,
I'll build a fire from the fallen star.

And while you're every belief betrays you,
I hope someone real is there to save you;
Because sometimes,
It's in the darkness
that you find yourself,
And sometimes the light
will burn your eyes out.

I'm only getting older,
And tomorrow is as good as gone;
So I'll sit here by my fire,
Singing yesterday's song.
