Life Is For Living

Life is for living at least so they say
Don’t plan for tomorrow but live for today
Be happy, be joyful, be merry, be gay
At least so they say
And it sounds well and good
As all fairy tales do
Yet there’s something about it
If only I knew
I would pin down and shout
From the depths of my soul
I’m happy, I’m merry, I’m joyful, I’m gay
I breathe and I eat
I sleep and I dream
My life is for living yet somehow I seem
To find it a drag not to know where I’m at
So I live for tomorrow I plan for today
Yet somehow I know there’s can easier way.
