PARTS OF MY LIFE

(Guitars by Scott Pontiac)

PARTS OF MY LIFE
----------------
CHILDHOOD

When I was young , the world was wide open
Just having fun, Playing and joking
How could I know about teenage angst
Why would I care about giving thanks
Live for the moment, no reason to plan
It’s all just enjoyment, before becoming a man
Taking for granted the freedom I had
Enjoying the good, not knowing the bad

CHORUS

Which parts of my life are considered the best?
The one without strife, who would have have guessed,
Had it so good, but now it’s all changed
Maybe I should just try and arrange
The parts of my life that I want to keep
Get rid of the times that prevent me from sleep!

TEEN YEARS

Struggle through high school, getting in fights
Drinking and partying all through the night
So stuck in my head, that I can’t look up
Not planning, instead, just try to hook up
How could I care about money and work
Why would I dare to be planned and alert?
Taking for granted the freedom I had
Enjoying the good, not knowing the bad

CHORUS

Which parts of my life are considered the best
It’s hard to decide, when viewing the rest,
Had it so great, but now it’s all changed
Maybe I should have acted more strange
What parts of my life do I want to stay
Get rid of the times I was alone and afraid

ADULT YEARS

Now I am working, providing for things
Earning the money and all that it brings,
Stuck in a pattern, not realizing the time
I was spending forever, just standing in line
Punching the clock, awaiting my turn
But how much cash do I need to earn
To sell away all of the freedom I had
Forgetting the good so I can pay for the sad

CHORUS

Which parts of my life are considered the best
I know it’s not when I was most stressed
Had it so great, but now it’s all changed
My time for the money is what I exchanged
What parts of my life do I want to remain
Get rid of the times I was exhausted and strained

ELDER YEARS

Now I am old, and I have to look back
Was all of my time spent on the right track
Now death is closer, the end’s drawing near
All I can do is look back on the years
What did I make of the world that I had
I did make a family, now a granddad
I think it’s the children that mean most for my life
They will outlast me, my marriage an wife

CHORUS

Which parts of my life are considered the best
It’s hard for me now, now that I’m pressed
Had it so great, but now it’s old age
The book of life’s ending, no turning the page
What parts of my life do I want to recall
I think that I want to remember it all
