about

"Mikey's Lament" is a rollicking blues/rock number in which our hero voices concern that "time might be running out" for him to achieve his major life goals.

lyrics

I'm keenly aware of time bearing down on me
I'm keenly aware of time bearing down on me
I've been looking all my life
For a woman to be my wife
And I'm keenly aware of time bearing down on me

I'm keenly aware that I ain't got no time to waste
I'm keenly aware that I ain't got no time to waste
I've been dreaming all my days
Of a child that I could raise
And I'm keenly aware of time bearing down on me

I'm keenly aware that time might be running out
I'm keenly aware that time might be running out
And the more I'm forced to wait
The more I feel it might be too late
And I'm keenly aware of time bearing down on me
