    Go is a declaration of movement. Sometimes movement is a forward motion – and sometimes movement takes a momentary pause as we wait for direction. In either case, “go” does not mean to sit still in our comfort zone and do nothing. We’re either going forward or idling in expectation of God’s direction. And when the time comes to go – then we GO!

When you see me, you can say what you want
Hard of hearing, you think that I’m outta touch
You may think that I’m washed up but I’m still in the game
Plus I don’t have time for this – and I don’t care what you say

I’m not dead yet
Not dead yet

You say age is something to be running from
But I say it takes a lot of years to be young
The longer that I live, the more amazing life becomes
Faith – Hope – Charity – I’m a witness to what it does

‘Cause I’m not dead yet
Not dead yet

Age is not a number or some sentimentality
It’s the measure of becoming who you were meant to be
Call me a Methuselah – if that’s all you can see
But I’m just getting started – call it destiny

As I look at you, I wonder just what I’ll find
Do you have a plan – or do you just criticize?
The hands of time will never stop, no matter what you do
Live each moment like it was meant for you!

You’re not dead yet
Not dead
No you’re not dead yet
Not dead

Not dead yet, not dead yet, not dead yet, not dead yet
I’m just getting started

(ad lib…)
