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

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

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

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

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

You know you gotta dream, yeah
And dead men got no dreams, no no no
So better go and dream, yeah
You know you gotta dream, yeah

You know you gotta dream
You know you better dream, yeah
[Incomprehensible]
You know you gotta dream
