Lyrical Musings an emotional journey via train of thought


January 28th, 2012

You can’t have it all they’ll say to you
You can’t have your cake and eat it too
And you’ll spend your whole life wishing it weren’t true

You have to take a chance if you want success
You can’t sit around and hope for the best
If only your life demanded for less

The easy thing is never right
If you love it, you have to fight
An uphill battle, such is your plight

If it’s love, then you’ll just know
I’d you love it, you have to let it go
But what if you’re left with nothing to show?

They sum up existence in pretty little lines
some to scare you and some to say “everything will be just fine”

They know it all, they’ve been there before
And they’re not afraid to tell you some more
But no matter the advice anyone will give
Your life, your mistakes are only yours to live

Sooner or later, there will come a day
When you find yourself using that cliche
You’ll pass on your wisdom to a younger heart
And hope this life won’t tear him apart

You’ll sum up existence in pretty little lines
Some to give hope and some to challenge his mind
All along, never realizing you’d find
These cliches come true, somewhere in time
