QUESTIONS COME QUICKER THAN ANSWERS

HEY! YOU BIRDS WHO FLY GOODBYE FROM EVENING SKIES,
WHAT’S YOUR REASON TO LEAVE ?
WON’T YOU SING A FINAL SONG ? I’M NOT HERE FOR LONG
-ONE DAY TOO I MUST LEAVE…….

AND HEY! YOU, COLD DECEMBER DAYS, AIN’T IT TRUE TO SAY
ONCE YOU WERE A BRIGHT SUMMER MORN ?
SO NOW THE AUTUMN’S BEEN AND GONE, GONE AND STOLE THE SUN,
HOW ON EARTH DO WE KEEP WARM ?

QUESTIONS COME QUICKER THAN ANSWERS……….DON’T THEY?
TIME JUST TICKS AWAY SO FAST.
WHAT FUTURE DOES A FUTURE HOLD IF THE PRESENT…
FAR TOO SOON IS SOON PAST ?

HEY! YOU BIRDS WHO FLY GOODBYE FROM EVENING SKIES,
WHAT’S THE REASON TO LEAVE ?
WON’T YOU SING A FINAL SONG ? I’M NOT HERE FOR LONG
-ONE DAY TOO I MUST LEAVE…….
-YEAH! ONE DAY TOO I MUST LEAVE…….

QUESTIONS COME QUICKER THAN ANSWERS……….DON’T THEY ?
TIME JUST TICKS AWAY SO FAST.
WHAT FUTURE DOES A FUTURE HOLD IF THE PRESENT….
FAR TOO SOON IS SOON PAST ?
