I know what I want, but I just don't know how to go about gettin' it.
All I want to do is have a little fun before I die

The pain passes, but the beauty remains

It's time for me to sleep, and to rest these thoughts away.
There's gonna be another day, when things will go my way,
and there's other things to say, and there's other songs to play.
There'll be time enough for thinking come tomorrow...
