lyrics

What’s the Rush?
by Ben Trelawney

On the train down to the parent’s house:
The old haunts, old friends, old ways.
It spurs you on to break from the past,
and what you were, as you want much more.
So you drive yourself to an early grave,
And what for?
A golden handshake and a fancy pen.
Stop a sec, do you like what you see?
I looked at myself,
Then it came to me,
By jove, it came to me.
What’s the rush?
If there is a time and a place for this,
It’s just not now.
I could think of amazing ways to waste our days but
This ain’t one.
Oh but you’re only young once,
So why the haste?
Because you’re only young once.
And there’s the rub.
You can spend a lifetime trying to do things correctly.
Round these parts they do things dreckly.
Sweep out the new ways and in with the old.
Take it to heart before the mindset takes hold
So quickly.
Not so quickly.
Then it came to me,
My God, it came to me.
What’s the rush?
You say that if it’s not here,
then you don’t know where, and you don’t know when,
When I say when.

What’s the rush?
If there is a time and a place for this,
It’s just not here or now.
I could think of amazing ways to waste our days but
This ain’t one.
Oh but you’re only young once,
So why the haste.
Because you’re only young once….
