One short season to the end of your life,
The waves grow stronger as you weather the ride
And all along you're hoping to set your course,
despite it all
To keep the tide from turning
Stop from crashing on the shore
One short season and we're riders on the storm.

I told my story to the girl I once loved
The words kept flowing then left me washed up
But singing 'Glory Halleluya
I was rescuded from the deep
Glory Halleluyah
I was rescued from me.
One short season and it's worth it
just to be.

Don't go gently into that good night
Rage, but wonder at the dying of the light
And remember you burned brightly
And you ran more than you fell
And remember life was tender
As it help you in its spell
One short season
So let's love and live it well.

One short season then we're ready to go
The petals fall - but seeds surrender and grow
So drop the wealth you're holding
Into your wishing well
And leave this world unfolding
Cos you gave more than you held.
A lifetime casts its shadows
And its light
One short season
It's the time of your life.
