 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

It's like I'm sitting at a bus stop waiting for a train 
Exactly how I got here is hard to explain 
My heart's in the right place, what's left of it I guess 
My heart ain't the problem, it's my mind that's a total mess 
With these rickety old legs and watery eyes 
It's hard to believe that I could pass for anybody's prize 
Here's what I know about the gifts that God gave 
You can't take 'em with you when you go to the grave 

It ain't over yet, ask someone who ought to know 
Not so very long ago we were both hung out to dry 
It ain't over yet, you can mark my word 
I don't care what you think you heard, we're still learning how to fly 
It ain't over yet

For fools like me who were built for the chase 
Takes the right kind of woman to help you put it all in place 
It only happened once in my life, but man you should have seen
Her hair two shades of foxtail red, her eyes some far out sea blue green 
I got caught up making a name for myself, you know what that's about 
One day your ship comes rolling in and the next day it rolls right back out 
You can't take for granted none of this shit 
The higher up you fly boys, the harder you get hit 

It ain't over yet, I'll say this about that 
You can get up off the mat or you can lay there till you die 
It ain't over yet, here's the truth my friend 
You can't pack it in and we both know why 
It ain't over yet 

Silly boys blind to get there first 
Think of second chances as some kind of curse 
I've known you forever and ever it's true 
If you came by it easy, you wouldn't be you 
Make me laugh, you make me cry, you make me forget myself 

Back when down on my luck kept me up for days 
You were there with the right word to help me crawl out of the maze 
And when I almost convinced myself I was hipper than thou 
You stepped up with a warning shot fired sweet and low across the bow 
No you don't walk on water and your sarcasm stings 
But the way you move through this old world sure makes a case for angel wings 
I was halfway to the bottom when you threw me that line 
I quote you now verbatim, "Get your head out of your own behind"

It ain't over yet, what you wanna bet 
One more cigarette ain't gonna send you to the grave 
It ain't over yet, I've seen your new girlfriend 
Thinks you're the living end, great big old sparkle in her eye 
It ain't over yet
