Commentary on the aging process.  I was fortunate to have the opportunity to record this with Drew Daniels both as bass player and engineer at his Sound Path Studio. 

RACING AHEAD OF TIME

Words and Music by John Cannon

 

Racing ahead of time, racing ahead of time

If you look around the corner you can see it coming fast

Try to catch a moment better catch it while it lasts

'cause it's coming after you.

Time is coming after you

 

Racing ahead of time, racing ahead of time

If you turn your back a minute you could get a slipped-disc in it

But you can have some wine, it'll do your heart just fine

Enjoy it while you can.

Yes, enjoy it while you can

 

I'm glad that the person in the mirror isn't me

'cause I haven't changed a lick since I was 23

And I'm in the greatest shape that I could ever be

But I must admit, my wife might disagree

 

Racing ahead of time, racing ahead of time

When I was just a kid a day would go so slow

Now a year goes by and all I did was wink an eye

But I always keep the spark alive

well beyond the day I die 

We’re gonna’ keep the spark alive
