99 Days
(G. Liszt, fiddle melody public domain)

In the future my fortune,
In the gutter my ruin,
So, what am I thinking?
So, what am I doing?
Living on my own,
For 99 days,
Going to find what it means,
Find what it weighs,

I left it behind,
I gave it all away,
I’m making it back,
Saving all my pay,
Living on hope,
For 99 days,
It’s time to find means,
It’s time to find ways.

It’s no trouble to talk,
And I can talk and talk tenderly,
Yes we can,
Truly be who we pretend to be,
When I don’t come back,
For 99 days,
Do you find time mean
Do you find the time pays?

I will find a way,
Of numbing the pain,
The good and the bad,
Are one and the same.
I will find a way,
Of numbing the pain,
The good and the bad…

I had it all,
Gave it away,
Now I’m making it back,
I’m saving the pay,
Living on hope,
For 99 days,
It’s time to find means,
It’s time to find ways.

I will find a way,
Of numbing the pain,
The good and the bad,
Are one and the same,
I will find a way,
Of numbing the pain.
