As I think back to all those golden days
I realize that time has been so good to me
I had desire
I was full of life
My friends and family shined so bright
There was nothing that we couldn’t do

Time rolled by
It moved so fast
I always tried to do my very best
No one could out do me.

I cleared the way
Turned on the lights
My life, it shined so bright
I lived for the very day

That’s why I’m proud to be me
That’s why I’m proud to be free

I’ve learned so much
I’ve dove so deep
I fended off trouble so others could sleep
I’ve even set fire to the sky!

So pour the wine
Fill the glass
Feel the afterglow at last
There’s a warmth deep inside of me..

All things must come to an end
For it to start all over again
Time has no boundaries

Autumn leaves
Deep blue skies
It’s amazing how time flies
The seasons have all been good to me

I stand tall
I did my best
And now, it’s time to rest
Twilight is shining down on me

That’s why I’m proud to be me
That’s why I’m proud to be free…..
