It Hasn't Happened Yet (Shatner William)

I was crossing the snow fields In front of the Capital Building It was Christmas and I was alone Strange city, strangers for friends And I was broke As the carillon sang its song I dreamt of success I would be the best I would make my folks proud I would be happy It hasn't happened yet It hasn't happened yet It hasn't happened Yes, there are nods in my direction Clap of hands, the knowing smile But still, I'm scared again Foot slipped, pebbles fall and so did I Almost, oh my On Yosemite, the big grey wall (Fear of falling) Where to put my foot next (Fear of failure) I'm afraid, I'm going to fall (Be at one with the mountain) I whispered in the air (Fear of falling, fear of falling (Fear of failure, failure) Fear of losing my hair (Falling, falling, falling) When is the mountain scaled? When do I feel I haven't failed? I've got to get it together, man It hasn't happened yet It hasn't happened yet It hasn't happened yet It hasn't happened It hasn't happened People come up and say, "Hello" Okay, I can get to the front of the line But you have to ignore the looks and yet I'm waiting for that feeling of contentment That ease at night when you put your head down And the rhythms slow to sleep My head sways and eyes start awake I'm there not halfway between sleep and death But looking into eyes wide open trying to remember What I might have done, should have done At my age I need serenity I need peace It hasn't happened yet It hasn't happened yet It hasn't happened yet It hasn't happened It hasn't happened
