lyrics

Don’t ask, you don’t get
But I ain’t finished asking yet
Long time, but I can wait
Whatever happens put it down to fate
Count the seconds, watch them fly
Never get them back once they’ve passed you by
Count my blessings, count my crimes
Add them all up at the end of time

Cold wind, warm breeze
Watch it all unwind in the sycamore trees
Summers vanish without a trace
Winter’s always waiting to take its place
Count the days one by one
Someone will keep counting when your days are done
Count my blessings, count my crimes
Add them all up at the end of time

Paint a picture, black and white
Never quite the same in a different light
Build a fire, flame and smoke
Never too hot till you stand too close
Count the days, count the nights
Count the fires burning bright
Count my blessings, count my crimes
Add them all up at the end of time

Take this book and pass it round
Spread the message from town to town
The road is long but the way is clear
If you arrive first I’ll see you there

Search for strength, long for love
Gonna put my faith in the powers above
High hopes, high stakes
Hope God listens to he who waits
Count the beads on this chain
When I’ve finished counting I’m gonna to start again
Count my blessings, count my crimes
Add them all up at the end of time

Always running, always trying
Doing what we can to stay ahead of time
Time to sleep, time to work
Gotta keep fighting for your pile of dirt
Count the years, watch them pass
Only lesson learned is that it all can’t last
Count my blessings, count my crimes
Add them all up at the end of time
