You own this
Is this what it’s for? all that work.
Is this what it’s for? all those words.
Is this what it’s for, just to beat me down here on the floor?
I’m fed up of thinking that I exist for some other reason, I insist.
This is all you get. This is life. Good morning. This is it.
So get out of bed, go to work.
Those thoughts in your head, they’ll only make you hurt.
This is daytime, dreaming is for nightime. This is life.
Born a little boy, you became a man.
It didn’t happen fast, and it didn’t go as planned.
But you are in one piece and you have the rest of your life at your feet.
And everybody else has been down here too,
They might not show it – but they have felt like you.
So pull yourself together, wash your face, dry your eyes. This is life.
Tomorrow you’ll be fine, (well maybe not!) but in a week or so’s time…
Someone will say something, and you will realize:
you’re smiling, you’re having a good time.
Yes you will look around and see the flowers, all the colours under the sun,
And you could stare for hours, or for a minute there…
you realised what you’ve got…
Not merely a bag of bones, beautiful skin,
and inside your little head, there’s that thing that makes you think.
Tell it not to worry, you won’t be coming home – follow your heart.
‘cos somebody loves you, you know that.
They really really need you, and you need them back.
It’s a very simple thing but you must try to remember it now so please sing
