Thought I Had More Time

© 2010 J. Oscar Bittinger Written for “The Folk Bros.”

Thought I had more time To drink the carefree wine To stand out on the rocks And shout the sea to salt But I was wrong Don’t have that long Thought I had more time To make up my own mind To catch all I could chase In the wide world’s endless race But I was wrong Don’t have that long
BRIDGE I believed I could not fail Into the gale I would sail Fearless youth, foolish man Pursuing truth far from land
Thought I had more time To do what I’d design To find a rainbow’s end To make this world into a new Eden But I was wrong I’m not that strong I was wrong Don’t have that long
