Refrain:
I feel like, I feel like,
I feel like my time ain't long,
I feel like, I feel like,
I feel like my time ain't long.

1 Went to the graveyard the other day,
I feel like my time ain't long,
I look'd at the place where my mother lay,
I feel like my time ain't long. [Refrain]

2 Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down,
I feel like my time ain't long,
And sometimes I'm almost on the ground,
I feel like my time ain't long. [Refrain]

3 Mind out, my brother how you walk on the cross,
I feel like my time ain't long,
Your foot might slip and your soul get lost,
I feel like my time ain't long. [Refrain]
