Left behind (Lyrics)

Life for me was never easy,

Every day a new race,

I started slow, but kept competing,

As we grew some dropped off the pace

It’s hard to run and hold another,

Old friends begin to disappear,

But now everything goes so quickly

I feel I’m slowing down, I fear

I guess I’m being left behind

Like forgotten toy of a child

Remember when I made you smile?

Before you had a change of style

…I guess the wrong place, at the wrong time

Has become the story of my life

The world is getting colder,

Running all alone,

Where you are is it so much warmer?

When I’m not worth a thought

Does it hurt so much to see me?

I no longer overtake,

Age makes us all a little slower,

But I still can’t find my place

I guess I’m being left behind

Like forgotten toy of a child

Remember when I made you smile?

Before you had a change of style

…I guess the wrong place, at the wrong time

Has become the story of my life

(When the work is not viewed and shared, the artist loses hope, and the birth of new art ceases to be imagined)
