lyrics

“Well I left it all" - he said to me - “Way on the other side of the world…”
“Back home I was a professional man, now here I drive this cab it’s absurd"
"But no I never regret it a bit, because my kids are happy so is my wife."
"That’s great but what about you man” I asked — "is this all you want from your life?"

(then he said)

"You’ve got to pass it along
Way before your days are gone
Take a look around and ask what’s it all for?
See the life that you’re building doesn’t have to be yours
No the life that you’re building doesn’t have to be yours."

Then he dropped me off at my stop — and I got my old man on the line
“Hey are you OK? ” he asked — “You know I haven’t heard your voice in some time."
"I’m fine — but tell me something, did you really give up on your dreams just for me"
"That’s right and it may not be clear to you now — but when you get to my age then you’ll see"

(then he said)

"You’ve got to pass it along
Way before your days are gone
Take a look around and ask what’s it all for?
See the life that you’re building doesn’t have to be yours
No the life that you’re building doesn’t have to be yours"

One day you’re looking ahead and then you just happen to note -
All the things that mattered to you once — suddenly don’t
(that’s when you know)

You’ve got to pass it along
Way before your days are gone
Take a look around and ask what’s it all for?
See the life that you’re building doesn’t have to be yours
No the life that you’re building doesn’t have to be yours
