BETTER LATE THAN NEVER

Past the surge of middle age crazy
downhill slide starts kicking in
on the verge of golden age hazy
dreams subside horizons dim

deep within your eyes I see such sunny skies
as though we had a lifetime ahead
there isn’t any time to nurture any wine
only random harvest instead

Better late than never baby better late than not at all
we don’t rate forever baby one last hurrah one curtain call
no it ain’t too clever baby who’d have thought we still could fall
hesitate its never baby better late than not at all

Once designed to reach for the glory
energy would set the tone
now resigned to speeches and story
memory has etched in stone

Then you look at me like we were meant to be
apprehension just fades away
yesterday is done tomorrow may not come
you and me and we got today

Better late than never baby better late than not at all
we don’t rate forever baby one last hurrah one curtain call
no it ain’t too clever baby who’d have thought we still could fall
hesitate its never baby better late than not at all
