You asked me once if these were tear drops
I didn't lie when I told you no
Cause this old man
He don't cry
He don't laugh
He done told all his jokes
Those days have come
They're so far gone
A few too many I should have known
The day would come

When life would stare me down
And there'd be no place to run

 A boy or a man
 Staring into the eyes of life
 Will I stand or turn and run

The life you choose is for all eternity
If you blink you miss more than a beat
No rest stops or place to catch your breath
And fun is a drug for fools
Wish I had some better news
Well matter of fact I do
You live on in God's memory
No matter how fast you run

 The soul of a man
 Staring into the eyes of life
 Will he stand or turn and run
 I'm the only me
 And you're the only you
 No matter how fast you run
Run
