Album
Name of Song: Those 50 years

I’ve been learning from a Master.
Making it my own,
Moving through those 50 years,
Uncovering things once known.

No pain, no gain, it’s obvious,
Otherwise, why need to try,
Those things we haven’t faced as yet,
Can wake that urge to die.

Can’t imagine living,
Without that need to try,
It seems we have a hill to climb,
Between us and the sky.

Chorus
Try, and try and try,
Get off asking why,
Aim towards the sky above,
You’ll never need to sigh.
Try, and try and try,
Get off asking why,
Aim towards the sky,
You’ll never need to sigh.

Taking your own journey,
Is yours and yours alone,
Make the best of what you see,
Absorb what you’ve unknown.

I’m glad I made the journey,
I’m glad I tried and tried,
I’ve never been a perfect man,
But stayed away from lies.

Taking your own journey,
Is yours and yours alone,
Make the best of what you see,
Absorb what you’ve unknown.

Can’t imagine living,
Without that need to try,
It seems we have a hill to climb,
Between us and the sky.
