Album Notes
(One from the Dark Side... in a happy little tune.

Inspired by the fact that the older you get, the faster time goes by. It's an accelerating curve...)

Produced and Mixed by Jason Poff

Now To Then © 2011 Scott Youngberg

In the days of youth I thought it was the truth

If this was as good as it got, (well,) that’s OK

When things got rough what we had was enough

And that’s how it would stay

When the times got good I never understood

That it wouldn’t always be that way

*Chorus Time keeps moving on

Now is now the past

Every Now becoming Then

Faster than the last

Everyday I see

Less time in front of me

I howled at the Moon but settled too soon

(Now) Each passing year I’m disappearing

I want my hunger back for the time I’ve still got

Don’t get a “Do Over” or another shot

(Still don’t know what I want to be…)

How can this be? Complacency?

At 43, I can see (the end of)

My immortality


The World’s not what I was taught it should be

What I was told, wasn’t reality

The prices of the vices keep adding on

To the cost of life, but then they’re gone

If I have to believe all the stories I’m told

Guess I better grow up, before I grow old


Don’t really have the blues

With no retirement to lose

I’ll keep wearing out my shoes

Until I can’t walk.
