Too young to die, but too old to survive
I've spent too long trying to write this song
The tune is okay, but the words are all wrong
Maybe it's time for a change

I've lived a lie since the day I arrived
Building my dreams”grand romantic schemes
Now I'm twenty eight, but I'm still in my teens
Maybe it's time for a change

Now it's time to say goodbye
To my suit, my shirt, my tie
My youth seems to have passed me by
And I'm too young to die

I will not weep for what we leave behind
I must break free from that part of me
That values the art over the humanity
I think it's time for a change

I thought that I was doing fine
But now I've changed my mind
'Cause now it's time to say goodbye
To my suit, my shirt, my tie
My youth seems to have passed me by
And I'm too young to die

Maybe it's time for a change
