Not That Far Away (Or My God Too)

I’m too young to feel this old

Too old to act so young

I just can’t do what I’m told

Can’t please anyone
Some folks walk ten thousand miles

Just to fit in another’s shoes

All I can do is smile

I was that person once, tooMy God, He don’t care

Who I know or what I say

Ain’t no use in splitting hairs

Heaven’s not that far away

I’m never gonna be a pin-up model

No Burt Reynolds or Pamela Lee

That’s a hard pill for some to swallow

I’m good with hard pills, apparentlyGod ain’t got time to worry

That doesn’t mean He doesn’t care

It’s just my burden is no burden

And I’m gonna be lighter than airMy God don’t give a shit

If I go or if I stay

Ain’t no way that I can quit

Heaven’s not that far awaySo next time you try and compel me

I won’t put you in your place

But don’t be upset if you don’t sell me

I just can’t believe you’ve cracked the caseGod ain’t got no time to worry

That don’t mean He doesn’t care

It’s just my burden is no burden

And I’m gonna be lighter than airAin’t no use in splitting hairs

Heaven’s not that far away
