In the grand scheme of things, we meander in bliss
Don’t signal me to leave with my horse, I’m a princess
Live with those we need the most, life’s full of roses
With a buzz and a fuzz, we have to take all our chances
Forget the gamblers and saloon girls with their bullets
Write some sonnets, enjoy the chocolates in the banquets
Stop in a cosy spot and keep ourselves warm by firewood
Stay virtuous, you might even be a candidate for sainthood
Tenacity will get us through against dismal thrust of events
Life is full of twists, turns and surprises, live in suspense
I get goose bumps by thinking we’re living at the edge
Sometimes sliding downhill like a journey with a sledge
Life’s such a ball, full of locks, smiths and the whole lot
Open our eyes and believe in faith, fame and whatnot
To be or not to be, that’s the question
Do I take it or not, that’s another
What will happen if I don’t?
Will I be given a second chance?
Or will I let my life be the same?
When I could have done something?
Dilemma, more dilemma in our lives
Questions we attempt to answer
Questions coming up every day
Big decisions, small decisions
Sometimes we can tackle them
Other times they are more complicated
We have to weigh the consequences
Contemplate on the pros and the cons
Follow our hearts, instinct and guts
Sometimes we hurt the ones we love
Sometimes we don’t get what we want
Sometimes we fall down several times
And come back on our feet many times
Do we carry on or just give up?
I’d say, carry on even if they hurt
Carry on even if we think we can’t
Carry on even if there are deterrents
We have to be tough and carry on!
