Futurama

1,000 Years

Song By Mitch

(Based on Five for Fighting's "100 Years")

With apologies to Five for Fighting

 

I’m fourteen for a moment
Caught in between thirteen and twenty-eight
And I’m down here,
Counting the steps to where you are.

I’m twenty-five for a moment
And she looks better than ever
And she’s on fire
Making our way back from Mars.

Fourteen, there’s a chance with you.
A chance to make or a chance to lose.
Fourteen.
There’s never a wish better than this,
When you got over a thousand years to live.

I’m twenty-six for a moment.
I’m still the man,
But again I’m a they,
My old flame is back, eh?
With a new start on her mind.

I’m twenty-seven for a moment,
My feelings are high
And I’m heading to a climax
Telling you how you fit in my life.

Fourteen, there’s a chance with you.
A chance to earn and a chance to lose myself on a
pleasant night.
Fourteen, I’m right with you.
Fourteen.
There’s never a wish better than this,
When you’ve got over a thousand years to live.

How time just goes,
Suddenly, I’m froze.
Another blink of your eye, twenty-five is gone.
The stars are getting high.
We’re moving on.

I’m twenty-eight for a moment.
Playing holos for just another moment
And I’m just dreaming,
Creating the ways to where you are.

Fourteen, there’s still time with you.
Twenty-seven, I tell you, too.
Twenty-eight, you look my way.
Every day’s a new day.

Fourteen, there’s a night with you.
A night to earn and a night to lose.
Hey, fourteen.
There’s never a wish better than this,
When you’ve got over a thousand years to live.
