lyrics

He wakes up in the morning
Slides out of bed, heads off to work
Rain falls down, it's pouring
And he wonders what this is really worth

He comes home in the evening
so stressed out he ignores his wife
Sits down in front of the TV
Thinks of nothing but how much he hates his life

He doesn't even notice
That she's sitting in the corner staring at his face
Wondering why she ever
Agreed to take on his last name

And one short year later
She's gone with a broken heart
And he's just left here wondering
Why he didn't say he loved her from the very start

Well I don't know if there's a heaven
But I do know for a fact
That when we die, we get a one way ticket
To a train that we can never ride back

So do what you wanna do and
Love who you wanna love and
Don't waste your whole life through
Just thinking about what you could have done and

Chase the dreams you wanna chase and
Never spend a single day thinking
Standing idle is okay
Because you are worth so much more than that

And don't forget to use the words "I love you"
And don't forget that dancing is okay
And don't forget that life means nothing
If you never say the words you need to say

And don't forget that you are breathing
And don't forget that you are alive
And don't forget that somebody cares about you
And don't forget that somewhere that sun always shines

I don't know if there's a heaven
But I do know for a fact
That when we die, we get a one way ticket
To a train that we can never ride back

So do what you wanna do and
Love who you wanna love and
Don't waste your whole life through
Just thinking about what you could have done and

Chase the dreams you wanna chase and
Never spend a single day thinking
Standing idle is okay
Because you are worth so much more than that

Do what you wanna do and
Love who you wanna love

Do what you wanna do and
Love who you wanna love
