    My life has been like whitewater ride

    Ending up in some quiet lagoon

    Got mixed up in so many things

    In the end, alone in my room.


    In the beginning I couldn’t be stopped

    I was relentless night and day

    If I crashed or screwed up

    Well, I always could pray.


    I’ll tell you this young one

    About all those ideas in your head

    Some of them will take you somewhere

    With the rest, you may end up dead.


    You may be learning about love

    You may be learning to fly

    One thing I’m sure hasn’t occurred yet

    Someday, you’re gonna’ die.


    I would never fault you

    For running when young to try your wings

    But remember this one fact

    Not much means a thing.


    Somewhere you’re going to find love

    And from it you will be changed

    It will be all you think about

    And surely, it will be strange.


    You may be chasing things in life

    That you only read about before

    Think about those things carefully

    Before you close that door.


    Even though love may fill you

    And make you take chances once in a while

    In the end did you make a difference?

    Did you make anyone smile?


    Sometimes you’ll trip the light fantastic

    Out of your head, lost in space

    The goal is to learn about life

    Go on, find your place.


    Always keep your eyes open

    Learn something new every day

    You won’t always get what you want

    And sometimes you won’t get away.


    So you may be on some long lost highway

    Chasing down some fun

    Traveling with souls like you

    Livin’ life on the run.


    Don’t ever forget where you came from

    Or lose sight of where you are going to

    Honor those who show you wisdom

    Always, try to learn something new.


    Someday youth will leave you

    I hope your life was well played

    Don’t end up like an old Poet

    Overcome , and off the stage.


    Take what you learned in the circus

    Remember what you saw in the zoo

    Your going to need those things now.

    As you become what I did too.
