Life's a Ride

UFO

Used to be I was younger
Used to be time moved slow
Used to be all was said and done
But I knew nothing 'bout the setting sun

Used to be days seemed longer
Used to be an infinite flow
Used to be days were nothing but time
But at the end of 'em I'd nothing to show

Who ever said one was better
Between night and the light of day
One is trying to get somewhere
While the other might have found his way
Life's a ride
Every bit of the way

Used to be I was restless
Maybe now I still am
Used to be I couldn't sit still in my seat
And now I find I'm jumping out of my skin

Used to be fooling someone
Could've been fooling me
Nobody's fooling anyone now
Now because you know that talk is so cheap

Who ever said one was better
Between night and the light of day
One is trying to get somewhere
While the other might have found his way
Life's a ride
Every bit of the way

(bonus track: family picture, just for the guitar solo)
