Why Do I Keep Counting?

There's a plane and I am flying
There's a mountain waiting for me
Oh these years have been so trying

I don't know if I can use them
Am I strong enough
To be the one
(Am I strong enough to be the one)
Will I live to have some children? (children)

Help me get down
I can make it
Help me get down
Help me get down
I can make it
Help me get down

If I only knew the answer
I wouldn't be bothering you

Father
Help me get down
I can make it
Help me get down
Help me get down
I can make it
Help me get down

If I only knew the answer
And if all our days are numbered
Then why do I keep counting?

My sugar's sweet
So attainable
This behavior's so, unexplainable
The days just slip and slide
Like they always did
The trouble is my head
Won't let me forget

I took one last good look around
(So many unusual sounds)
God get my feet on the ground

Help me get down
I can make it

Ahhh...
Help me get down
I can make it
Help me get down
Help me get down
I can make it
Help me get down
If I only knew the answer
I wouldn't be bothering you

Father
Help me get down
I can make it
Help me get down
Help me get down
I can make it
Help me get down

If I only knew the answer
And if all our days are numbered

Would you help me get down!
(Help me get down I can make it help me get down)
(Help me get down I can make it help me get down)

If I only knew the answer
If I change my way of living
And if I pave my streets with good times
Will the mountain keep on giving
And if all of our days are numbered


Then why do I keep counting?
