Life can be good,

Life can be bad,

Sometimes I wonder what I could have had

if I didn’t make all these mistakes

With the chances right in front of me to take,

Then maybe my life would be just great.

I try to fix my past,

but my problems just seem to last,

No matter what I do, or what I say,

my past haunts me from day-to-day.

Life can be short,

Life can be fast,

At least I’m lucky with the life I have.
