The same old thing starts happening
Every time it gets colder
Summer stalls, but the leaves still fall
Guess I'm not getting any older

In the time it takes to say this to you
I've a thousand other things to do
But sometimes I need to slow down
The kid I used to be comes out
To show me what time is all about
And turns my focus around

And so it goes
As life ebbs and flows
Sometimes it's hard not to mind
Forgetting what you leave behind
'Cause whatever lies ahead
No one knows; so it goes

Lifelong friends I'll never see again
Well, you meant a lot to me
Summer stalls, but gives way to fall
And the world won't stop turning, I see

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:
Everything repeats itself to no end
And every year the grass turns brown
In the time it takes to say this to you
I've a thousand other things to do
But thanks for the chance to slow down

And so it goes
As life ebbs and flows
Sometimes it's hard not to mind
Forgetting what we leave behind
'Cause whatever lies ahead
No one knows
