Life Spoke to me, Listen Life calls you

As I rose out of the mass of twisted metal
I looked at the wreckage and I asked God, How did I survive that?
And what is this lovely voice that I hear speaking to me
But Life speaking these wonderful words of which I have never heard before
By my visitation I will enlighten you
Take my words and please Timothy listen closely
I have chosen you and I have never been wrong about a decision
Go and tell the people that i give life, and I'm not the one who takes it
See my gentle hand, here is where I touch you
Remember before you left this evening
I said please stay at home in a voice as silent as it is lovely
Yet you chose to ignore me
As do so many that i call out too
Then I implored you to get off this road that we are on
And your response was no I think I'll keep going
Please hear me I am Life
I give you words because when I speak no one cares to listen
I said please Life help me
Because when I speak how can I make them listen
Life said listen and I will tell you, all you can do is tell them
Feelings and premonitions, and when you feel these tugs on your heart there
Little signs are my way to show you
I have even been known to use a child to point you in the right direction
Like when a deer jumps out in front of you and you hit it
I am saying get off the road you are on for it is the path of destruction
I said please Life I have a question
I thought you gave Life and never take it
Life say's see that's why I have chosen you
Because Death calls you all to come and meet him
Now I have given you Life twice
Please remember these words and I instruct you
It is I who saves you, Now go! It is time to tell all the others
