Why Do I Keep Counting?

There's a plane and I am flying
 There's a mountain waiting for me
 Oh these years have been so trying

 I don't know if I can use them
 Am I strong enough
 To be the one?
 Will I live to have some children?

[x2]
 Help me get down,
 I can make it,
 Help me get down

 If I only knew the answer
 I wouldn't be bothering you, father

[x2]
 Help me get down
 I can make it
 Help me get down

 If I only knew the answer
 And If all our days are numbered
 Then why do I keep counting

 My sugar sweet is so attainable
 This behaviour so unexplainable
 The days just slip and slide
 Like they always did
 The trouble is my head
 Won't let me forget

 I took one last good look around
 So many unusual sounds
 I gotta get my feet on the ground

 Help me get down,
 I can make it (ohhhhh...)
 Help me get down,
 I can make it, help me get down
 Help me get down
 I can make it, help me get down
 If I only knew the answer...
 I wouldn't be bothering you, father,
 Help me get down
 I can make it, help me get down
 Help me get down
 I can make it, help me get down
 If I only knew the answer...
 And if all our days are numbered,
 Would you help me get down? (I can make it, help me get down)
 (Help me get down)
 (I can make it, help me get down)
 If I only knew the answer...

 If I change my way of living
 And If I pave my streets with good times
 Will the mountain keep on giving

 And if all of our days are numbered
 Then why do I keep counting
