Liner Notes: 

Colleen: maybe these lyrics spoke to me because I am officially middle-aged now. But, anyway, I am grateful to have worked with such great lyricists this 50/90.

John says - Colleen may be middle-aged, but she doesn't look a day past quarter-age... and she did a fine job breathing life into these old lyrics.

Lyrics: 

Halfway There

V1
They say my life is half used up
But seems I still have half-a-cup, to fill
I surely hope that's true

V2
With Hell below me, and Heaven above
It seems that just a little shove, would send me
Either here or there

Chorus
Yeah... with half to give, and half to Live...
I have to be more positive, if I
Still have time on this earth...
Halfway to death - though it's only half-past birth...
When your cup is full - that's when you'll be dyin' of thirst...

V3
I wonder which could be more true
Halfway up the ladder, or down the chute - depends
on how you play the game

V4
Seems half my life I've done to others
And now I'm here to tell you brother, that I
Need to find another way

Chorus
Yeah... with half to give, and half to Live...
I have to be more positive, if I
Still have time on this earth...
Halfway to death - though it's only half-past birth...
When your cup is full - that's when you'll be dyin' of thirst...

V5
If karma hasn't yet found you
The cards and dice will say you're due, for change
You need to be prepared

V6
If you fear death - you don't live Life
Accept more lovin' and pass up strife, you'll see
That livin' can be fun...

Chorus
Yeah... with half to give, and half to Live...
I have to be more positive, if I
Still have time on this earth...
Halfway to death - though it's only half-past birth...
When your cup is full - that's when you'll be dyin' of thirst...

Very nice, Colleen! The guitar playing gracefully stayed in the background and let your vocals shine in the spotlight! I'm so glad you took the time to "play" with some of my words.

Solid lyrics, and nice singing with a lot of interesting subtle changes melodywise.
