All of my heroes are fading away
And I’ve seen too many friends reach the end of their days
Lately time has been traveling a little too fast
I guess this is my life now, I hope that it lasts

My long-ago places have all disappeared
The people I met there are no longer here
And my most beloved memories are fragile like glass
I guess this is my life now, I hope that it lasts

There were times when I used to feel cursed
But I’ve learned things could always be worse
And I know this is just how it goes
I’m still making plans
But it’s out of my hands

If you have to have cancer, I got the right kind
But it weakened my body and fucked with my mind
Made me fear for my future and dwell on my past
I guess this is my life now, I hope that it lasts

I feel like I’ve still got something to say
I’ve got miles to travel and music to play
But there’s no way of knowing what will come to pass
I guess this is my life now, I hope that it lasts

Well it seems thar our time here has come to an end
Thank you for coming, you’re the best of my friends
Before saying goodnight, let’s all raise a glass
And say “This is my life now, I hope that it lasts”
Yeah, this is my life now, I hope that it lasts
