Life's too short

Life's too short
To live in the past
It's too short
You never know how long it'll last

One day you're small 
Holding your father's hand
You're sure no one will let you fall
You're lost in your own dreamland

You grow up faster and faster
You start to see and realize
You grow bolder and stronger
You start to see judgement in people's eyes

You don't want help anymore
You're sure you know what you're doing
You close the door
On all advice, you start to wonder where you're going

As facts hit you in the face
It's almost hard to breathe
You're trying to keep up with the pace
But all the hardships bury you underneath

You start to miss what you had
When you had someone who cared
You start to feel sad
You start to feel empty of the love they shared

But someone comes out and says
You're stuck in the past
You're living in the haze
Time is running out, you better move fast

It's then that you're sure
That life's not forever
You open the door
You're never shutting it again, never

You walk out into the future
All the possibilities there are
You smile at life
You know you're not going to wast another hour

So before you go
You make a lasting impression
On the world and let your talent show
Finally you're satisfied and embrace the end
With no hesitation because you reached your destination

Life's too short 
To live in the past
It's too short
You never know how long it'll last.
