You get to choose for yourself where and how you’ll spend eternity. I hope you don’t mind if I make a subtle suggestion: Choose life and live forever.
I’ve shared the lyrics to my song called “Choose Life” before, but I’ve never shared the song itself. Today, I’m gonna make it available to anyone who wants it. Free. You don’t have to subscribe to anything. You don’t have to give out an email address or SMS number or anything like that. It’s just my gift to you for being there.
I hope it encourages you, or inspires you, or otherwise changes your mind to the positive side of life. If so, I’d love to hear from you about it. Now, here’s the words and music…
Well you hid your heart in a so-called safe place,
And you locked your love in a big, black box,
And you had no hope,
But you built your brave face,
And you ran your rat race…through the tics and tocs.
Well, the bluebells bloomed in ideal intentions
As you tilled the truth into lifelong lies,
And you dug in deep making many mentions
Of your pretty pensions…always alibis.
You can’t run away from real truth.
And every word of truth is a knife.
A captivating voice might pigeonhole your choice,
Cut free…and choose life.
When your daydreams die and you feel half-hearted,
And your love is lost in a soulless sky,
Try to train your thoughts when your brain’s bombarded
By the stuff you started…learn to love the lie.
Choose life…choose life…choose life
