Experience

experience you once feared and craved
is now a part of your each day
who would have thought you could get used
to living that new way
do you remember, once you had a life
do you remember, once you had a kid and a wife?

Give me another time (give me time)
give me another day and night
and maybe after, and maybe after that
I’ll change my mind
but not tonight

sometimes you think back to the days
before you found real pleasure
before you discovered how the world
denies you all its treasures
why did they keep it away from you so long?
and why do they keep saying that it’s wrong?

Give me another time (give me time)
give me another day and night
and maybe after, and maybe after that
I’ll change my mind
but I don’t think I will
because I don’t think I can
and I am not yet ready for the end

Give me another time (give me time)
give me another day and night
and maybe after, and maybe after that
I’ll change my mind
but not tonight
