Getting Behind

Written By: Ray Moody

Getting Ahead

You’re little boy says daddy please don’t go
But you just smile because you know
You’re trying hard to make it true
The American dream is up to you
So you touch him on his face
And run to take your place
Getting ahead

We’re connected to the world these days
With our cell phones and our PDA’s
We watch the world go flying past
In relationships that just don’t last
You wonder why you never win
Then you do it all again
Getting ahead

You’re getting ahead
Falling behind
You’re missing it all
Selling you’re time
You can’t even see
The mountain that you climb
Getting ahead
Falling behind

A wife that loves you sits alone
Just waiting by the telephone
She patiently awaits your call
The one that never comes at all
She cry’s her self to sleep that night
Hoping you’re alright
And getting ahead

There’s a meeting that you must attend
And work that never seems to end
You don’t have time for silly things
Like football games, and choir sings
Your children don’t expect you there
Cause they know you’re out there
Getting ahead

You’re getting ahead
Falling behind
You’re missing it all
Selling you’re time
You can’t even see
The mountain that you climb
Getting ahead
Falling behind

You look into the mirror
And you don’t like what you see
A broken tired old shell of the man
That you used to be

Now you finally realize
There are things you left unsaid
While you focused on the wrong things
Trying to get ahead
