Be True to You
When the light at the end of the tunnel
Is really an oncoming train
Reconsider the options before you
When moving forward is simply insane.
Take a look at the hand you've been dealt
Only fools believe life's truly fair
So follow your heart where it leads you
With your own sense of venture and flair.
When the cards are all laid on the table
You're left naked with nothing to hide
In reality no one is watching
It's just you and you're own sense of pride
So stand up tall and be counted
Be true to what truly makes you
Life is too short to be worried
And that train has already passed through
