I Want To Live On For As

Far younger than i am are among the dead
My best years behind me old age is ahead
I am happy for to have seen in another New Year
Though that time is not on my side to me is obviously clear
The passing of time has left me balding and gray
But i feel happy to welcome every new dawn of day
I want to live on for as long as i can
And die in my sleep without pain as a very old man
From the mid sixties to the mid seventies i was in my life's prime
But this is going back many Seasons in time
And time that rusts iron does take care of all
The great tree of the forest does eventually fall
But i want to live on for as long as i can
And die in my sleep without pain as a very old man.
