Two thirty in the morning
Late October day
Writin’ one last song
Before I leave this place

A couple hours ago
I turned thirty nine
Unusual for a birthday
But it’s how I’m spending mine

I know life doesn’t have a finish line
It’s a journey not a race
There’s no destination
Except here and now today
All the same just this one time
I’ll claim a finish line

Twenty four songs in twenty four hours
Actually done in twenty
Don’t remind me I know if they were all great
I wouldn’t have near as many
