Pretty Soon

from Dan Whitehouse by Dan Whitehouse



Pretty Soon

There’s not enough time to see the sunshine,
not enough time to learn.
I don’t have time to go out there,
others have time to burn.
There’s not enough time to help anyone,
not enough time to care.
Not enough time to write a song.
I can’t tell you I’ll always be there.

Lets take a break, a holiday.
Lets get away from it all.
Tell me the stuff you’ve been meaning to say,
But never had time to before.
Forget the baggage the dreams and ambitions,
just take the things we need.
Nothing we plan ever comes to fruition,
So throw all the plans in the sea.

The taste of something sweet,
or the bright side of the street.
Makes you realize,
Pretty soon we’re all gonna die.

There’s not enough time to worry,
not enough time to fight.
There’s not enough time, so hurry,
we’re having a party tonight.
There’s not enough time to get angry and stressed,
not enough time to be down.
Not enough time, this isn’t a test.
There’s time for fooling around.
