It’s how you live

 

Wake up to the sunlight
With your windows open
Don’t hold in your anger or leave things unspoken
Wear your red dress
Use your good dishes
Make a big mess and make lots of wishes
Have what you want
But want what you have
And don’t spend your life lookin’ back

So go to the ballgames 
And go to the ballet 
And go see your folks more than just on the holidays 
Kiss all your children 
Dance with your wife 
Tell your husband you love him every night 
Don’t run from the truth 
‘Cause you can’t get away 
Just face it and you’ll be okay 

Oh wherever you are and wherever you’ve been 
Now is the time to begin

So give to the needy
And pray for the grieving
E’en when you don’t think that you can
‘Cause all that you do is bound to come back to you
So think of your fellow man
Make peace with God and make peace with yourself
‘Cause in the end there’s nobody else

Turn up the music 
Turn it up loud 
Take a few chances 
Let it all out 
You won’t regret it 
Lookin’ back from where you have been 
Cuz it’s not who you knew 
And it’s not what you did 
It’s how you live
