Good riddance to you, the reaper… Song 365

One more song to go! This year is almost over, and not a day too soon. Is it me, or has this year been longer than the last three or so? The reaper has certainly been making up for lost time. The hits keep coming and we know we’ll have to face it eventually. It’s draining to think about. Good riddance to the reaper, good riddance to 2016!

Song 365: “Reaper”

Time is fleeting and that clock never stops
Mind the meaning and know when to walk

Good riddance to you, the reaper
The world keeps spinning along

None of us are evergreen, but here none the less
All of us know what it means, we’re all in this mess

Good riddance to you, the reaper
The world keeps spinning along

We weather the storms we’ve been watching, we catch the drift
We wonder where the time went, while we sit in this rift

Good riddance to you, the reaper
The world keeps spinning along

There’s no time to waste
You can’t just run in place
You can’t outrun the reaper

You can’t outrun the reaper
You can’t outrun the reaper
