Release of YDU Band single, “It’s My Time”

One of Sloan Davis’s many catch-phrases is his inspirational-speaker in-a-van-down-by-the-river cheer, “It’s our time, man!” He’d always say it if one of us got down about our future or our life’s accomplishments.

Well, when it came time to celebrate his 50th birthday, Grant and Dave fashioned that phrase into what is arguably the most powerful song in the YDU repertoire, “It’s My Time.”

The song walks the razor’s edge of mid-life between being at the top of one’s game and being ready for the grim reaper. Bulls may not chase, but they also are ripe for the arena and the picador’s blade.

Check out the lyrics below:

You say it ain’t no big deal
You say it’s all gonna be ok
You say I ain’t over the hill
But that’s all some lying hearsay
 
I say my knees is aching, Lord
I say my soul is so tired
And I say I can’t play no more
But I ain’t never gonna give up this game
 
It’s my time, it’s my time, it’s my time
I don’t know if I’m on the prowl or out to pasture
It’s my time, it’s my time, it’s my time
I’m gonna tell St. Pete to wait outside the gate
 
You say I should not have that drink
You say I gotta take care of myself
You say that I’m too damn old
And I say you can all go to hell
 
It’s my time, it’s my time, it’s my time
I don’t know if I’m on the prowl or out to pasture
It’s my time, it’s my time, it’s my time
I’m gonna tell St. Pete to wait outside the gate
