Where Did My Life Go (Lyrics)

by Jerry Boutot

I’ve been breezing along for so long now
I haven’t even realized that youth is leaving me behind
As I look at myself in the mirror now
I’ve just begun to realize that death is walking by my side

And I know I don’t have very much time
To do the things I dreamed about since oh, so very long ago
So I think it’s time for me to step out
Like I should have done when I was young way too many years ago

Now I ask myself where did my life go?
As I sift through the dust of years gone by
And I wake up and realize I have been blind
Always pretending that I would never grow old

I pray many prayers at the thought of my death

So I run for a while and when I turn around
They’re telling me that I’m too old, my service is no longer required
So I run and hide from the fear I feel inside
That I’ve become too useless and my whole life has been fruitless

They give me a gold watch and shake my hand
And tell me that I’m lucky ’cause I can take off and see the country
But I’m much too tired for having fun any more
And the pay I get for working hard won’t even get me to the grocery store

Now I ask myself where did my life go?
As I frantically search through the years gone by
And I wake up and realize I have been blind
Always pretending that I would never grow old

I pray many prayers at the dawn of my death
