lyrics

I've been around this place
For quite some time
I wish that I could say
That I was fine
I know without a doubt
It's past my time

But still...
I cannot die
'Cuz the divine
Have captured me in time

Why can't I
Why can't I fade away?
Someone please
Someone please pave the way for me
And even if I were
To shout a bit louder
I can't, I can't, I can't escape

I've lived through many wars
Of many kinds
I haven't aged a day
While generations pass me by
I watch my family one by one
As they pass with time

But still...
I cannot die
'Cuz the divine
Have captured me in time

Why can't I
Why can't I fade away?
Someone please
Someone please pave the way for me
And even if I were
To shout a bit louder
I can't, I can't, I can't escape

This year I watched
My grandson die
He was only 85
And no one
Said no one can see
The world as is viewed through my eyes
My eyes
I let an angel die

But still...
I cannot die
'Cuz the divine
Have captured me in time

Why can't I
Why can't I fade away?
Someone please
Someone please pave the way for me
And even if I were
To shout a bit louder
I can't, I can't, I can't escape
