lyrics

Well your life’s not working out just the way you planned,
You wanted to be married by now, but you’re not,
No you’re not!
You’ve still got some time to go.

O, but all of your old friends, they are getting hitched,
And posting photos on the internet,
Have they no shame? Don’t they know,
What these things can do to lonely souls, like yours?

And now you’re getting invitations to all these wedding days,
And you’re wondering, who will be your date,
12 months away!
Who will share that piece of wedding cake with you?

But there’s no use worrying about it,
When the right thing comes along, you will know,
Or maybe you will die before it ever comes your way,
So it goes.

Back when you were young, you told yourself,
You would never work in a cubicle in your life,
Your whole life!
Now you’re staring up at florescent lights everyday.

And when you look back down to the papers on your desk,
It breaks your heart to know you were so ambitious,
And now you’re not! And it breaks your heart!
You had plans to set yourself apart from the world.

But there’s no use worrying about it,
When the right thing comes along, you will know,
Or maybe you will die before it ever comes your way,
So it goes.

They say your fears are silly because you are so young,
But getting older with every setting sun,
The morning comes, the day moves on,
And by nighttime, you wonder how it’s gone so fast.

‘Cause it’s true that we are only here for such a short time,
A second hand is ticking off a human life,
Before you die, you’d like to try,
To give ‘em something to remember you by.

But there’s no use worrying about it,
When the right thing comes along, you will know,
Or maybe you will die before it ever comes your way,
So it goes.
