From the recording Racing Ahead Of Time

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. 

Lyrics

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
