lyrics

Take the future and the past
Take the past and present tense
Take the moment to be heard, in a song
Make mistakes and take a chance
Open doors with half a glance
Go and do the things you most want for yourself

You only have one life to show, for all your days on the road
You only have one love to grow, then you’ll be gone
Best to make the most of this, love and hope, this pain and bliss
Best to feel all we can feel before it’s forgotten
Let’s not forget it

Take a minute, make it right
Skip the worry and the fight
Hold your fears up to the light
Let them all go
You have the power to create
Don’t sit around and wait
Just believe that you are great
Live your life

You only have one life to show, for all your days on the road
You only have one love to grow, then you’ll be gone
Best to make the most of this, love and hope, this pain and bliss
Best to feel all we can feel before it’s forgotten
Let’s not forget it

I will grow old, and pale and grey
My eyes won’t see the same array
My ears won’t hear and voice won’t sing
But I will always remember these things

You only have one life to show, for all your days on the road
You only have one love to grow, then you’ll be gone
Best to make the most of this, love and hope, this pain and bliss
Best to feel all we can feel before it’s forgotten
Let’s not forget it
