Thoughts About The Future
Copyright © 2006 Jesse Rubenfeld

[1]
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

[2]
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)

[Bridge]
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

[3]
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
