Days Are Numbered

You don't want to hear it from me
Or for that matter, from anyone
But time is racing by so quickly
Turn around, it will be gone

Anyone who has a dream
Will hold it to his breast
But it's how you live from day to day
That puts it to the test

I know you've come a long long way
And I guess you've heard it all before
And anything that I might say
Could touch upon what still is sore

Any woman, any man
Who's standing on their own
Yeah, anyone who has a plan
Can see it carved in stone

I only want to say I love you
And you're always on my mind
I hope you know there is no other

But oh my darlin'
Days Are Numbered
And vanishing one by one
Oh my darlin'
Days Are Numbered
See how fast they run
They're vanishing one by one

Time is short and life is sweet
I know I want you here with me
Anytime that you're away
It's just another wasted day
See how fast they run
They're vanishing one by one

I only want to say I need you
And you're always on my mind
And in love's light I always see you

But oh my darlin'
Days Are Numbered
See how fast they run
Oh my darlin'
Days Are Numbered
Vanishing one by one
Oh my darlin'
Days Are Numbered
See how fast they run
They're vanishing one by one
See how they run
How fast they run
See how they run
