If It's My Time to Go

from The Thought Chapter by Color Theory

supported by


Grand Prize Winner in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest


Never quite sure when it will come to pass
Living each day like it could be my last
Cause the planet seems to spin a little bit faster
When you wake up every day awaiting disaster

Took a long time for me to admit defeat
Too many dreams just lying there at my feet
But I’m older now it seems
A little bit smarter
So I won’t go to extremes by playing the martyr

If it’s my time to go
You should know how much I love you
If it’s my time to go
I am ready
If it’s my time to go
Then go on ahead without me
Close my eyes
Kiss my cheek
Let me go

Coming to terms changes your attitude
Tempers the fear with genuine gratitude
I’ve enjoyed some happy years
Collected some trophies
But the end is drawing near
So listen up closely

All bets are off
There are no guarantees
What happens next
We’ll have to just wait and see
Let this song be my goodbye
Don’t try to reject it
No loose ends for us to tie
We’re interconnected.
