If only we could freeze time, capture a single moment,
Like a dew on a green leaf,
Like a winter flower that blooms every twenty years,
That dies ere the sun rises again.
Instead we must endure:
Growing up too fast, pretending to be men,
Fly on and on like a bird born without legs.
Slave a lifetime for a single dollar—
Go screaming into the good night,
Burn out like a falling star.
