"I don't look ahead so much / I tend to look behind me now"

lyrics

Time Flies

The prodigal son wandered in from the wilderness
I had squandered my potential, thought idle fun was happiness
Crawled home hoping they’d forgotten all my lies
A quarter moon drifted past the stars and whispered time flies

Hey I used to look good - at least that’s what the grown ups said
But I let all those easy choices go straight to my head
What does the life of the party do after the party dies
A half-moon drifted past the stars and whispered time flies

It’s so easy for the kids ‘cause they think they’re never going to age
That long road stretches out before them and all the world’s their stage
They wear sunglasses at night and dance under the diamond skies
A full moon drifted past the stars and whispered time flies

I don’t look ahead so much, I tend to look behind me now
Hey who is that in the mirror, I can hardly even find me now
But the head always knows what the heart often denies
And a quarter moon drifted past the stars and whispered time flies

Was just a moment, a heartbeat, feels like only yesterday
We were picking up our tools, learning how to work and play
Then suddenly it seemed in the time it took to blink our eyes
The moon disappeared and the stars whispered time flies
Yeah the moon disappears and the stars whisper time flies
