​Before My Time Is Up

This song is by Roger Daltrey and appears on the album Rocks In The Head (1992).

Before the gods read my lifelong sentence
Before I get my share
Before I walk alone
Before they take away my last temptation
Before my heart's deprived
Before they call my name

On the back fences of my dream line
I never lost my mind
I gave it all I had
To get away with the whole damn big bang
For the right reasons
For what you can't take back

Until the drums stop beating
Until the crossroads burn out
I ain't a man until I've done it all

Before my time is up
Ooh, I'll hang my name
On every trial I'm due for
And even if I can't get justice
I'll take you down to hell
Before my time is up
I'll leave no stone unturned
I won't regret my actions
And even if my last words fail me
I'll be a better man
Before my time is up

I believe that the road goes somewhere
Beyond the empty eyes
Beyond the wasted land
When it all fades away to nothing
I wanna know I tried
To take a real hard stand

I gotta laugh at the whole damn big bang
I've got to cry sometimes
I've got to love somebody
Before they read my lifelong sentence
Before I get my share
Before I go alone
Until the drums stop beating
To where the crossroads burn out
I ain't a man until I've done it all

Before my time is up
Ooh, I'll hang my name
On every trial I'm due for
And even if I can't get justice
I'll take you down to hell
Before my time is up
I'll leave no stone unturned
I won't regret my actions
And even if my last words fail me
I'll be a better man
Before my time is
Time is
Time is up

Ooh, and even if my last words fail me
I'll be a better man
Before my time is up

Before, before my time is up
Before, before my time is up
Before, before my time is up
Before my time is up
Before my time is up
Before my time is up
Before my time is up
Before, before
