Imagine yourself, alone, perhaps sitting on the couch or staring out the window, or simply just having lunch. Then, you pause for a moment because you’ve thought of the things you’ve done in your life. The thoughts of what you will do in the years of your life keep flowing, too. Were you satisfied? Are there more things you want to do?
“My Next Thirty Years” is a suitable song to ponder on things and gather your thoughts on the past and the future. It will make you realize your life journey and of course the next pages of your life. Indeed, this is another song of Tim McGraw that has profound meanings hidden on the words and lyrics. Listen and read the lyrics for it will draw you to your expedition. Surely, there are memories you’d laugh about, memories you wish to bring back, and of course memories you regret. But most importantly, what will the future bring you.
I think I’ll take a moment celebrate my age
End of an era and the turning of a page
Now it’s time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years
In my next thirty years I’m gonna have some fun
Try to forget about all the crazy things I’ve done
Maybe now I’ve conquered all my adolescent fears
And I’ll do it better in my next thirty years
My next thirty years I’m gonna settle all the scores
Cry a little less, laugh a little more
Find a world of happiness without the hate and fear
Figure out just what I’m doin’ here in my next thirty years
For my next thirty years I’m gonna watch my weight
Eat a few more salads and not stay up so late
Drink a little lemonade and not so many beers
Maybe I’ll remember my next thirty years
My next thirty years will be the best years of my life
Raise a little family and hang out with my wife
Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear
Make up for lost time here in my next thirty years
In my next thirty years
My Next Thirty Years…
