Just Live


Just Live

There are boats out on the lake and

the boys tease the girls they deeply adore.

I hear no complaints no matter where I go,

I wish I was with them again.


The boys tease the girls deeply adore.

As they walk along the shore.

I wish I was with them again

with every day that goes by.


As they walk along he shore,

people smile and nod their heads at me.

With every day that does by,

I think about how life used to be.


People smile and nod their heads at me,

as I walk around, a smile on my face.

I think about how life used to be,

but I will never go back there again.


As I walk around, a smile on my face

people look at me and frown

but I will never go back there again.

I will stay happy, and things will be fine.


People look at me and frown.

My life has ended.
I will stay happy, and things will be fine,

just like you should.


Like life has ended,

think of the details of the future,

just like you should.

Imagine all of the world more fit for a king.


...Smile through it all as I send wishes of goodwill.
