Jim the Bart Songs with a Strategy for coping with life? (33) Lyr Add: SECOND WIND 01 Aug 01


Since you asked. . .Here are the words to a song that I wrote that seem to sum things up for me at the moment. If you want to hear what the song sounds like, there is an MP3 file out on my web page,

Good luck, Dunc.

SECOND WIND

In a rest stop on the road to ruin
Could it be time for something new?
Better keep one eye on what you're doing
Figure out what life's been telling you
You never wanted fame and glory
Just some comfort on the street
Add one more chapter to your story
Taste the bitter and the sweet

Chorus:
I've got my second wind
It's bringing me back again
I'm gonna ride that second wind
Right on to the end

Now I'm not getting any younger
But I won't be this young again
I don't have time to sit and wonder
About mistakes from way back when
It took some time to find a reason
Might take some more to find a way
But I will never stop believing
I'll always toast to better days

Years go by like lightnin' flashes
In your mind you never change
One long parade of people passing
Maybe a few recall your name
You have always played the stranger
Hanging out beyond the fringe
But no one said you must remain there
On the outside looking in

Bridge:
Don't stop digging for the answers
As you ride the spinning wheel
Never question second chances
Learn to trust the way you feel

Hold your breath a little longer
Let it out soft and slow
Feel your pulse growing stronger
You've got so far left to go
