Song Lyric Sunday (7/8/18) – Think

Helen’s prompt for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is the word think. She chose that word because she has had one of those weeks and weekends where she just can’t. I know what I have to say about that: Been there…done that…have the t-shirt.

So after a bit of thought, I am going VERY old-school Rush for this one. This is from their 1973 album called Caress of Steel. It was almost the last album they made, which is a story at the very heart of Rush.

“I Think I’m Going Bald” was written for Kim Mitchell, who at the time was the frontman of the band Max Webster and a close friend of the band. Don’t let the initial thought fool you…there is depth to this one.

Music: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson
Lyrics: Neil Peart

I looked in the mirror today
My eyes just didn’t seem so bright
I’ve lost a few more hairs;
I think I’m going bald
I think I’m going bald
Seems like only yesterday
We would sit and talk of dreams all night
Dreams of youth
And simple truths
Now we’re so involved
So involved with life

Walk down vanity fair
Memory lane everywhere
Wall Street shuffles there
Dressed in flowing hair

Once we loved the flowers
Now we ask the price of the land
Once we would take water
But now it must be wine
Now we’ve been
And now we’ve seen
What price peace of mind
Take a piece of my mind

My life is slipping away
I’m aging every day
But even when I’m grey
I’ll still be grey my way

    1. Oh nice! We had Lakeshore Dr down here. It was a long strip along Lake Pontchartrain. Cars would be parked, all listening to the same radio station, and then there were miles of cars drivng slowly back and forth along the strip.

      1. Sounds wonderful. That is another favorite memory … being in parked cars and listening to the same music. We did not have a strip to drive. Everyone just pulled up to the lake and parked. If you were in a truck you sat on the tail gate. Laughing, singing and listening to music. Good times.
