Old Before I Die

Lyrics

She's taking me places I should never have been
She's showing me faces I should never have seen
Well, these are strange days we're living in today
C'est la vie I say
I hope I'm old before I die
I hope I live to relive the days gone by
I hope I'm old before I die
Well, tonight I'm gonna live for today
So come along for the ride
I hope I'm old before I die
She's not feeling stable, she's unable to breathe
Her heart's beating faster so I'll ask her to leave
These are strange days we're living in today
Am I straight or gay?
I hope I'm old before I die
I hope I live to see the day the Pope gets high
I hope I'm old before I die
Well, tonight I'm gonna live for today
So come along for the ride
I hope I'm old before I die
Well, these are strange days we're living in today
C'est la vie I say, I say, I say
I hope I'm old before I die
I hope I live to relive the days gone by
I hope I'm old before I die
But tonight I'm gonna live for today
So come along for the ride
I hope I'm old before I die
I hope I'm old before
Old before I die
Old before, old before I die and die and die and die
Old before I die and die and die and die...
