LYRIC - YOU CAN'T WRITE A SONG (WHEN YOU'RE DEAD)

We only get so much time... Job 14:5 'Our time on earth is brief; the number of our days is already decided by you. Every man has been allotted a number of days here on earth.'





YOU CAN'T WRITE A SONG WHEN YOU'RE DEAD


V1: I'm running out of time

Standing in the line

Insurmountable

Problems to sort


I'm running out of time

Tight stomach tells me I'm

Facing my last resort

PRE CH: Familiar voice says it's not going to work

No one makes a bean from path you tread

News is doom gloom maybe nuclear war and

I've gotta get out of my head - oh....


CH: You can't write a song when you're dead

You can't write a song when you're dead

You can't write a song no you can't write a song

You can't write a song when you're dead

Get up off your bed

Get it out of your head cause

You can't write a song when you're dead

You can't write a song when you're dead

You can't write a song when you're dead

V2: So I'm processing lines

Pondering dream signs

Wondering what's to be done


Got to face down fear

Let courage live here

Put my hope in what's to come


PRE CH: CH:


BR: And half empty whispers

Train is coming head on

Half full answers

You still have some time

Half empty shouts

Looser no chance

Half full

You can make it

Cross the finish line and...

CH: CH:
