It Ain't Over Yet
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
