Wise Man


I sat before the wise man in the autumn of my youth
And I told him all the things I had to know
He said you have the future if you need to find the truth
And in his eyes I saw that it was so.

So I came right out and asked him the meaning of life
And as he smiled I saw a twinkle in his eyes
He said with all his years there's still so much he has to learn
And once again I saw that it was so

Keep on living, living, waiting your turn
Is the only way to case your concern
If you want to find your dream be sure you don't wake up too soon
Or you'll find it easier shooting for the moon

Wise man, wise man which way shall I run
There's so many roads so many ways to turn
I am like a blind man lost in the sun
I wanna be like you, and be a wise man too
But I'm looking for an easy way to learn.
