Chorus:
Go ahead and live your life and love it every day
'Cause if you don't, I think you'll see
How it slowly slips away
Till one day you wake and find
All your dreams committed suicide and there you go
You got a dead man on your hands

Now everyone has other lives in mind
Once they've taken care of needs
But won't it blow their minds
How quickly time flies
And that's all to life that there's goin' to be

Bridge:
So be careful what you pretend to be
Choose it well what you think you're goin' to be
'Cause what you pretend is exactly what you'll be

We all admire a man who's free
One who dares to speak his mind
A friend who disagrees without apologies
But I've heard that leads to jail sometimes

Bridge

Now if you've planned to live your life just so
A simple road without a bend
As you walk that line, I think you'll find friend
There's changes down the road you didn't figure in

Chorus
