Year on Year, Day by Day (Patchwork Version)

Passenger

Well is life just a walk up a steep hill?
You get to the top and then it's all downhill
Spinning 'round like the arms of a windmill
And you never slow down

And is love just a foolish emotion?
A Hollywood dream, just a childish notion
Plenty of fish but I am miles from the ocean
For I'm scared that I'll drown

I always thought that I would see it coming
Like a train rolling down the line
I never dreamed that I would end up running
Away from myself and out of time
Hey, hey, hey I feel it slipping away
Year on year
Day by day

And how do you know when it's really crunch time?
You could choke on a fortune cookie one unfortunate lunchtime
And I fear death is just the final punch line
Of this comedy show
So make them laugh before you go

I always thought that I would feel it coming
Like a storm in a summer sky
I thought I'd hear the marching band drumming
Thought I'd see the fireworks reflect in her eyes, oh
Hey, hey, hey I feel it slipping away
Year on year
Day by day

Well, love can drag you under
And it can feel so frightening
Love can steal your thunder
And strike you down with lightening
And at the end of it you'll say

I always thought that I would see it land
And the hairs on the back of my neck would stand
But there's no fireworks or marching band
Just a letter from the queen if you live longer than planned oh
Hey, hey, hey I feel it slipping away
Year on year
Day by day

Year on year
Day by day
