Thoughts About The Future
Copyright © 2006 Jesse Rubenfeld

If you'd asked ten years ago
"Where are you gonna go?"
"I don't know but somewhere on my own.
I'm gonna learn to play guitar,
Then I'll become a star,
And go farther than I ever could have thrown."
I knew that no one was listening
And I wasn't sweating getting high
I had thoughts about the future
But I waited for the world to pass me by

Now I'm sometimes out of steam
I say, "Things are never what they seem,"
And "Dreams are just the stuff of tender years."
But then I write another word
Then a second and a third
'Cause I've heard this is the way to face my fears
And maybe no one is listening
But I ain't never goin' dry
I've got thoughts about the future
And I ain't waitin' for the world to pass me by

(quick solo break)

Hey, stranger in the station
Have we missed the train and been left behind
Won't you tell me your story
Now that you've heard mine

and Ten years from today
I can look you in the eyes and say
"I made it just as far as I could go"
And if you still are not listening
Well I ain't one to sit and cry
I've got thoughts about the future
And I ain't waitin' for the world to pass me by
