Carpe Diem You Said

Carpe Diem you said 
And I ponder that line as I sit here in bed 
Seize the day; don’t stop ‘til you’re dead 
Don’t fight with your fists, but with your head.

Be the rebel they used to be 
Be the inspiration you want to see 
Chase your dreams, fulfill your destiny 
It was meant for you, like the sand for the sea 

Go after the life that you want 
Turn away as they tease and taunt
Even though their words will haunt
And they tower over you and daunt.

Be free and choose your life 
Fulfill the dreams you dream at night 
Follow your heart, it’s always right 
Never let your dreams go out of sight. 

You told me to hold on 
To the things that fill my heart with song
Don’t let them tell you that you’re wrong 
Don’t be afraid though the road is long.

And I won’t forget these things you said 
Carpe diem ‘til you’re dead
I won’t fight with my fists, but with my head 
It’s the most powerful tool in your tool shed.
