It's getting to the point where I don't know
If I made the right decisions
I feel I'm forced too choose a path too early
And I swear that we're all hypocrites
We tell ourselves we love our lives
Secretly dream we're someone else
We're never satisfied
With who we've become, and what we've achieved
We still have a need
To be what we are not
But that is growing up, and this is growing old
And we all have regrets

Now this is real life
And we are growing older
There's no easy answers
And we are striking out alone

These days it seems like everyone has a plan
Just box me up and ship me out
A fresh new suit to build my clout
A carbon copy of middle class aspiration
I could just be like everyone, I could be money give me more
But I am yearning for the road less traveled
It has always been my dream
And I can't hear another way
If I should die and never take the chance
A rearview mirror for a life Pulling away, appearing nearer

If I knew how I would write the book
Become self actualized
Two easy steps to a new and healthier you
Step one you owe it to yourself, to figure out just who you are and all the things that you love in this life
Step two tell everyone that's in your way that though you'd love to chat on all your future plans you're very late
and they can save their cocktail conversation
You won't play that game
You listen to your heart
