Now if I were nearing ninety..?
Would I be writing my dreams backwards
to spell AMAZING ROUTE TO STARDOM
No, that wouldn't be right or written as I write
AMAZING ROUTE TO STARDOM
i would have me a glass of wine
to drink and age like red red wine
while i sit in a quiet lounge
listening to the sounds of a guitar strum
i would surely be a master of my craft
who took an AMAZING ROUTE TO STARDOM
how long does it take to reach the staircase
that takes you on a voyage of magic?
would be a winding staircase
or one that is seen to be winding
or one with the wooden handle bars
to keep you from falling and hurting
or would that staircase be cushioned
by the stars and the clouds
and have you trailing footsteps that reach
far into the skies
Or would it take a lifetime and if so how long is that?
would it be till you reach the shores where death awaits your call
How long would a lifetime be
Would it stretch like it sometimes does
Or linger and forget you live
In a clustered time warp called "life"
Now, if I were nearing ninety,
I want my youth and my beauty
I want it all and so much more
I want to sing and be the choicest wine
To one and all, the red, red wine
And never age, not even a bit
For I have traveled an AMAZING ROUTE TO REACH STARDOM!
