Seeing Into The Future

What if we could see into the future

Would we really like to know what's ahead
Something tells me it's better not knowing
The day when we wake up dead


What if we could see into the future

And knew we'll gain a big bunch of weight
Would we go on a diet of alfalfa and yogurt
Or say “what the hell, that's fate”


What if we could see into the future

No matter what, we couldn't lose
We knew all the winning lottery numbers
And knew every one to choose 


What if we could see into the future

Knew an affair would end in disaster
It sure would save a whole bunch of grief
And we'd live happily ever after


What if we could see into the future

And a friend we knew from childhood
Turned out to be a rich entrepreneur
Renewing our friendship would be good


What if we could see into the future

Would we really like to know what's ahead
Probably better to stumble our way through
And be surprised by events instead

    Even if we knew the future... We'd probably do some thing to change it... And if not, things might get a little boring... Tho I'm not sure how that can be, with winning the lottery and all... LOL... But I'd sure like to see.
