When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

- "I Still Can't Say Goodbye," Performer: Chet Atkins

The changing of sunlight to moonlight
Reflections of my life
Oh, how they fill my eyes
The greetings of people in trouble
Reflections of my life
Oh, how they fill my eyes

All my sorrow, sad tomorrow
Take me back to my own home
All my crying (all my crying), feel I'm dying, dying
Take me back to my own home

(Instrumental interlude)

I'm changing, arranging, I'm changing
I'm changing everything
Ah, everything around me

The world is a bad place, a bad place
A terrible place to live
Oh, but I don't wanna die

All my sorrow, sad tomorrow
Take me back to my own home
All my crying (all my crying), feel I'm dying, dying
Take me back to my own home (ah, I'm going home)

All my sorrow (all my sorrow), sad tomorrow
Take me back (take me back) to my own home
All my crying (all my crying), feel I'm dying, dying

- "Reflections of My Life," Dean Ford (Thomas McAleese) & Junior (William) Campbell (Band: Marmalade)
