Rock the Cliche

Here are 10 cliches that I thought of this week that I found interesting
- Tie the knot
- Over the hill
- Pedal to the metal
- Throw in the towel
- Wake up call
- Home run
- Alone in love
- Can of worms
- Keep your stick on the ice
- Reinvent the wheel

I decided to develop 'Over the Hill' as my song of the week.  It's one of my favourites so far, partly because of the theme.  I'm 53 and decided about 6 months ago to take charge of my fitness, after reading 'Younger Next Year' for a 2nd time.  Now I'm working with a personal trainer, eating very differently and am down about 25 pounds.  So…I'm not planning to go 'over the hill' in a bad way.  I truly intend to be more fit (or 'younger') to enjoy life for a long time to come.  That's the message of his song.    The verses are spoken for a twist.  I'd love feedback on this one.

And the lyrics……

Over the Hill

(spoken verse) 
All through the years and forward in time
Childhood laughter turns to complicated teens
Times were good it seemed the higher we climbed
We found ways to chase and catch our dreams

Over that hill there's clouds of white
Whether it's snow…grandkids all bundled tight
Or the  robes of heaven's angels
Please let it be our hair in one more portrait dear

(spoken verse)
Few can say they've had a life as grand as mine
Younger next year is now my biggest plan
To keep on loving you my friends and family
And to push for more than any have the right to see

Over that hill there's clouds of white
Whether it's snow…grandkids all bundled tight
Or the  robes of heaven's angels
Please let it be our hair in one more portrait dear

I'm not ready to give it all up
I'm ready to fight 
I'm not going to fade to a memory

Over that hill there's clouds of white
Whether it's snow…grandkids all bundled tight
Or the  robes of heaven's angels
Please let it be our hair in one more portrait dear
