יעל דקלבאום - Twenty Seven

מילים ולחן: יעל דקלבאום

My daddy always told me
I’m going to make it far
Accept that you're the best
Cause that's just who you are
But little did I know
That he was speaking from the throat
Of a dreaming boy
And as I grew older I kept dreaming on
Everywhere I went I had to sing my song
Though I had much sorrow
I knew that by tomorrow
I'd be filled with joy

I didn't die at twenty seven
But I might make it to heaven
The devil didn't put his hands on me
And I quit smoking marijuana hold my liquor
Cause I wanna find my freedom unconditionally

Following the words I heard Neil Young once say
"It's better to bum out than just to fade away"
To me it didn't matter dying happily ever after
Just as long as everybody knows my name

But I didn't die at twenty seven
So I might make it to heaven
The devil didn't put his hands on me
And I quit smoking marijuana hold my liquor
Cause I wanna find my freedom unconditionally
Although I didn't get my portion
Of money fame and fortune
My happiness keeps growing day by day
And even if I'm not remembered
I never can surrender
Got to keep the music coming my way

Today I'm still alive
I'm already 33
It seems my life had different plans installed for me
My pockets never jingle
And I started getting wrinkles
But I've realized

That even though I'm not a big star
There's a wondrous world at my feet
With my music and my lover
What else do I need to be complete
