a life to be lived
the days roll into the next
but don’t let a single one pass without giving your best
the music will constantly play though the tempo may change
just remember that yours is a life to be lived
don’t just watch cuz you might never play
and don’t curl up in bed at the first sight of rain
because yours is a life to be lived
when you hear the birds chirping they are calling your name
so jump up and answer the call!
because yours is a life to be lived.
In a world full of hate you can still be that change
let your soul guide you to higher consciousness and watch your circumstances rearrange
yes, you are that powerful and yours is a life to be lived
don’t believe what the world tells you
can’t you see it’s all lies?
they’ll tell you that your wicked, stupid, and ugly leaving you feeling demoralized
but you’re none of those things
you’re so much more than you know
and you never will if you don’t get up and go!
see I could read names like Emmett, Oscar, Trayvon, Eric, Mike
brothers that lost life
and we know it ain’t right
so we owe it to them to fight!
yes, we do. yes, we can. yes, we will…
because our lives were meant to be lived.
