Bus Stop 16

It’s all changed & lifes moved on
I woke up one day & my health had gone
Pain has no preference when said & done
But I’m still sixteen inside.

---x---
I fell in luv, that’s what people do
In my mind I still think of you
I heard you’re still a bastard yeah, that ain’t nuthin new
& I’m still sixteen inside.

---x---
Bills to pay & a job to keep
If I wanna stay off the street.
Everyday is such a fucking major feat
Coz I’m still sixteen inside.

---x---
When ya family & friends have gone
& the last lament is sung
But oh you thought they’d live forever on & on
Coz we’re still 16 inside.

---x---
Yeah,Trust me one day you wake up old & grey
& you wonder where you’ve gone, one minute ya young
& ya dancing in a club, falling in N out of Luv, surrounded by ya friends yeah, drinking in a pub
Then changes come-a-creepin, ya never see them sneak in
suddenly the buildings gone & everybodie's leaving
friendships a memory, ya future round the bend
& ya clinging to the past coz you don’t wanna reach the end
Everything is gaining pace, it’s all becoming clearer
That nuthin lasts forever, N ya time is drawing nearer
its like waiting at a bus-stop ,another ain't gonna come
You only get one ticket, to one bus, make sure you’re on
& ride it to the max aiming for a crash landing
Or wait while everybody drops & be the last one standing.

---x---
Silver hair & mind decay
When I can’t remember yesterday
& oh my body’s changing in a frightening way
But I’m still sixteen inside

---x---
Always sixteen inside
Get on that bus, enjoy your ride
It’s now that you should live your life.
Will we be tha last ones standing Gaz?
