  1. Short and Sweet

I’ve got this image of a human life. It’s like we are shot out of a cannon, a meteor, a comet, and there is a pretty inevitable arc and trajectory, a shooting star in the night sky. I’ll take refuge, not umbrage, in that.

Lyrics

Life’s too short to fight and argue
It's too hard without a hand
I'm too soft to take these punches
Been too long without a friend
(Honey) Be my friend

Days flow and I won't fight it
Way to go Father Time
I slow down, but life goes faster
I don't drown, I’m floating fine
I'm floating fine
I want you
To float too
Been so long
Same old song
I'm not one for running
I stick around, I'll take the heat
Every spark a blaze of glory
Every life so short and sweet
Short and sweet

I'm not one for running . . .
I stick around, I'll take the heat
Every spark a blaze of glory
Every life so short and sweet
Short and sweet
