    vague lyrics in my head

    …. shorter of breath

    ….
    ….

    another day closer to death

    Druidh – That’s the baby. now why was that spinning around my head shortly before my 40th birthday? I think I will check out the full lyrics.

    Deadly – That site never works for me on account of my inability to sing

    Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
    You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

    Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
    You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

    And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking
    And racing around to come up behind you again
    The sun is the same in the relative way, but youre older
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

    Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
    Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
    Hanging on in quiet desperation is the english way
    The time is gone, the song is over, thought Id something more to say

    Home, home again
    I like to be here when I can
    And when I come home cold and tired
    Its good to warm my bones beside the fire
    Far away across the field
    The tolling of the iron bell
    Calls the faithful to their knees
    To hear the softly spoken magic spells.

    Oh, that seems spookily fitting. I must try and find my Pink Floyd CDs and listen to it.

    I think they might even be records rather than CDs and I don’t own a record player 🙁

    Give me time (!) and I’ll send you an MP3, if I can find it…

    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

    Arguably the best two lines in any song, ever. Discuss.

    fagud – Gulp. i was nearly 30 when I last listen to that song, I suddenly start singing it again and I am nearly 40. It’s like 10 years have gone behind me, no-one told me when to run. Did I miss the starting gun?

    Cheer up WCA. I’ve just hit 50 and feel like the world has suddenly become a brighter place.

    i am too busy having fun to be miserable. I didn;t realise I would be 40 this year until someone asked what I was doing for my 40th birthday.

    futures so bright, I gotta wear shades
