Lyrics

Normally we find Miss or Mr. Right
While we’re young enough to make our dreams come true.
 
Then there’s those of us Searching through the night,
And it’s hard to keep the faith when youth is through.
 
Some have broken hearts, Some have shattered dreams,
And there’s those of us who never got the chance.
 
Some don’t walk alone, Bursting at the seams
With the souvenirs of long ago romance.
 
One lesson learned: If you don’t take risks, you won’t get burned,
but you’ll wind up in a sad and lonely place.
 
Once you’re middle aged, Meeting someone new
It’s not easy as it looks while you’re still young.
 
Common things you share Few and far between,
And when something ticks you off, you hold your tongue.
 
Can’t stay out as late. Can’t drink quite as much.
Everything you eat goes straight to your rear end.
 
Hoping for a kiss. More than just a touch.
Can’t play hard to get when time is not your friend.
 
One lesson learned: If you don’t take risks, you won’t get burned,
but you’ll wind up in a sad and lonely place.
 
When lines are crossed And it looks as though all hope is lost,
Your time’s not up. Slow and Steady wins the race.
 
(instrumental of 1/2 verse)
 
Maybe you’ll crash or else you’ll fly. Maybe she’ll laugh or else she’ll fly.
You’ll never know unless you try.
 
Sitting across from you, it’s clear. What you’ve been waiting for is here.
Time to get out of second gear.
