  • This is getting old
    And so are you
    Everything you know
    And never knew
    Will run through your fingers
    Just like sand

    Enjoy it while you can

    Like a snake between two stones
    It itches in your bones
    Take a deep breath and swallow
    Your sorrow
    Tomorrow

    So raise it up and lets propose a toast
    To the thing that hurts you most

    It's your last cup of sorrow
    What can you say?
    Finish it today
    It's your last cup of sorrow
    So think of me
    And get on your way

    It won't begin
    Until you make it end
    Until you know the how the where and the when
    With a new face you might surprise yourself

    Like a snake between two stones
    It itches in your bones
    Take a deep breath and swallow
    Your sorrow
    Tomorrow

    So raise it up and lets propose a toast
    To the thing that hurts you most

    It's your last cup of sorrow
    What can you say?
    Finish it today
    It's your last cup of sorrow
    So think of me
    And get on your way!

    You might surprise yourself
    You might surprise yourself
    You might surprise yourself
    You might surprise yourself

    You might surprise yourself
    You might surprise yourself
    You might surprise yourself
    You might surprise yourself

    You might surprise yourself
    You might surprise yourself
    You might surprise yourself Writer/s: BILL GOULD, MICHAEL ALLEN PATTON
