When It Comes My Turn

I’m getting old but I’m not old yet
I’m already worried that I might forget
How to laugh, how to love
How to live, how to learn
I want to die with a smile when it comes my turn

Pair of Shoes

Cause we all walk in a pair of shoes
We all hope that we bounce more than we bruise
And it don’t matter how much you spend
It only matters in the end
That your soul don’t wear right through
