If you may listen to my words, as we raise up our glass,
’cause this time that we share, will surely pass.
Be cognizant of the times, whether they’re good or bad,
but don’t dwell on times, that you wish you had.
Don’t hang on to past love, for it wasn’t as it seemed,
just as foolishly useless, as falling asleep in a dream.
You won’t experience joy, when you’re stuck in your head,
like a beautiful dancer, who never left her bed.
Get out and live, never hold back on, and never flee,
from the life that you dream of, let go and just be…
