So many things I meant to do
so many paths I meant to tread
so many places I mean to go
but somehow I lost the thread

I'll do it later I said to myself
I'll do it when the kids are grown
I'll do it when I have more cash
but somehow I should have known

that someday never really comes
that someday is now or never
that someday is the thief of time
but somehow I wasn't that clever

and so the years have passed me by
and so the years have drifted
and so the years have taken their toll
but somehow the veil never lifted

So here I sit still dreaming dreams
so here I sit still yearning
so here I sit an ignorant fool
but somehow I'm finally learning
