lyrics

All the open arms of young girls you've been chasing
won't do no good in helping you forget.
oh it's time to come to grips.

the sad, sad, sad songs you've been singing.
a happy life, hell they won't help you live.
oh it's time. come to grips.

all the heavy weight you've seemingly been bearing.
it won't take much longer now, til your knees start to give.
oh it's time. come to grips.

the precious little time that you've been wasting.
on things that when you die you never get.
oh it's time. to come to grips.

all the funny little ways that trouble finds you.
and then it somehow seems to find me too.
oh it's time. come to grips.

the things that some may think have drove you crazy.
are the very things in which you find your peace.
oh it's time. to come to grips.
