lyrics

Oh, I’m counting down a 1,000 days
Oh, I’m counting down a 1,000 days

This is a stranger’s land
And things have changed since I began
My journey over foreign sands
Over 10,000 days ago

In a 1,000 days I’ll be
2 years 2 hundred seventy
Days wiser than I am today
Maybe then I’ll understand

Oh, I’m counting down a 1,000 days

Though life is hard across the Earth
Be glad for what you don’t deserve
Don’t wait too long to tell them, friends
Don’t waste another day

We’ll join hands and dig the Earth
My 2 pence for what it’s worth
Is when we lend a helping hand
We reach across a 1,000 days

Oh, I’m counting down a 1,000 days
Oh, I’m counting down a 1,000 days

I know where I am
Right now and where I want to be
But how to get there, I don’t know
Will it take a 1,000 days

But if patience is a virtue
And if impatience is a vice
I’d wait another 1,000 days
I’d wait and then I’d do it twice

Oh, I’m counting down a 1,000 days
Oh, I’m counting down a 1,000 days

I don’t want to wish away
All the things I have today
By counting down a 1,000 days
And miss the here and now

So I look forward to tomorrow’s end
So I can live today again
A 1,000 times and bring to mind
All the things I have right now

Oh, I’m counting down a 1,000 days
Oh, I’m counting down a 1,000 days
Won't let another go to waste
Oh, I’m counting down a 1,000 days
