about

Around Once:
I hate to say it but Joan, my Mom, had this to say about getting old: “ya ain’t got time to unpack your trunk.” She did not say it like that but that is what she meant.
I saw what life had for me during the stroke, life was going to peter out on me until I died, I saw that. You need to have fun while you are here.
Be Seeing You!
Dan

lyrics

Around Once

At first it looks like an endless road
Millions of places to see, millions of places to go
An optical illusion leads you astray
There's no such thing as endless days
Even old Methusala come to an end
The same that waits for you and me around the bend

You just get started and then it's done
Yea, it's over before it's begun
You don't got time to unpack your trunk
And you only get to go
And you only get to go
You only get to go
Around once

Before you know it, it's half through
What the hell have you done now, what the hell did you do
Where the hell did all that time go
And what the hell now do you have to show
Choices on choices they make a fate
The road once wide now's narrow and straight
You just get started and then it's done'\

Yea, it's over before it's begun
You don't got time to unpack your trunk
And you only get to go
And you only get to go
You only get to go
Around once

Hopes all gone, goals unattained
You struggled through the weather, the sleet, and the rain
And looking back on the ruins of all that was
You're lucky if you found someone to love
And as you wait for the pains of the last
You say to yourself, this too will pass

You just get started and then it's done
Yea, it's over before it's begun
You don't got time to unpack your trunk
And you only get to go
And you only get to go
You only get to go
Around once
