  • So soon we're too old to carry
    We knew we only had a little while
    In the middle keep ticking over
    Before you know it, parent a parent

    To have it all and still want more
    One things for sure we're all getting older
    So we take a lover waiting in the corner
    Before you know it, pushing up the daisies

    And we go back to where we came from
    Like those before and those to come
    And know its the ever and the more
    And again and again and again

    In the end nothing comes easy
    So you find a way to take a little with you
    For the ones you love, there if they need to
    Pharaoh, they're not coming with you

    And we go back to where we came from
    Like those before and those to come
    And know its the ever and the more
    And again and again and again

    So soon we're too old to carry
    We knew we only had a little while
    In the middle keep ticking over
    Before you know it, parent a parent

    And we go back to where we came from
    Like those before and those to come
    And know its the ever and the more
    And again and again and again Writer/s: Felix White, Hugo White, Orlando Weeks, Rupert Jarvis Shepherd, Sam Doyle
