Wish I could give you an answer
As to when life really begins
Wish I could tell you where we went
When our days here come to an end

Wish I could see the future
The same way I see the past
Wish I could draw a conclusion
Why nothing here seems to last

I cant even make a guess
Or an uneducated thought
All I could do here is my best
And be thankful for what weve got

Why do so many suffer?
Oppressed to the end of time
Why does freedom move so slowly?
Unable to speak its mind

Some say its a circle
Others think we live on the wing
Why are promises broken?
And some think life dont mean a thing

I cant even make a guess
Or an uneducated thought
All I could do here is my best
And be thankful for what weve got

Hope you could be a child of life
With big dreams for everyone
And know that dyings as natural as birth
And our troubles here they dont last long

I have worried about many things
Most of which did not come to pass
Hope you find someone to give you love
That your love will last

I cant even make a guess
Or an uneducated thought
All I could do here is my best
And be thankful for what weve got, weve got
