Roll out of bed, look in the mirror
And wonder who you are
Another year has come and gone
Today is your birthday
But it might be the last day of your life
What will you do if tomorrow it's all gone?

You won't be young forever
There's only a fraction to the sum
You won't be young forever
Nor will anyone

So...
Look at your life, who do you want to be before you die?
Look at your life, what do you want to do?
Look at your life, who do you want to be before you die?
Look at your life, you haven't got forever

And tell me what really matters
Is it the money and the fame?
Or how many people might eventually know your name?
But maybe you touch one life
And the world becomes a better place to be
Maybe you give their dreams another day
Another chance to be free

Happy birthday
Happy birthday

Look at your life, who do you want to be before you die?
Look at your, what do you want to do?
Look at your life, who do you want to be before you die?
Look at your life, it all comes back to you.

    General CommentThis song is beautiful in all senses and unknown for many, only for minorities? The violin, the rhythm and the lyrics, simple lyrics but direct to your heart: who do you want to be before you die? And the human always so deaf to this message...

    General CommentI love that this song was put in the new album. I love Dreamcypher for it's 'world changing' lyrics. If you listen carefully enough you can see how they use great tales of fantasy to reach into peoples hearts in order to change them... or is it just me?

    General CommentThis song is one of the best on their DreamCypher album. I love the beat... the sound of this song so much,

    And the meaning...

    I think it's self-explanatory... but I love songs that have meaning like this one.
