Life is Short

Verse

It’s been coming for me
I’ve been waiting for it
Things have gone just a little bit too fast
And everybody knows enough is enough

And I’ve been thinking on it
I’ve been drinking on it
I’ve let my reasons and excuses soak in to my bones
But I don’t feel like I want to give up

Pre-Chorus

So will I sit here waiting for the sunshine to ease my pain
Working on nothing, just wasting my time away
Will I settle for the world and the memories that I’ve made
Or will I listen to my heart and open my eyes for a change

Chorus

Life is just a little too short
To really even worry at all
Our plans and our schemes
Often turn into dreams
Won’t you tell me what you’re waiting for

Life is just a little too short
To really even worry at all
We hope and we strive
We’re so busy with our lives
We forget what we’re here for

Verse

So I stop for a second and take a look around
Take in all the visuals, the smells and the sounds
Try to see the beauty in the birds and the bees
But the shadow of my will is hanging over me

And I, I’ve been keeping busy
I’ve been getting dizzy
I’ve been focusing my energy on nothing really
And what’s a good book when you can’t read at all

Pre-Chorus

So will I sit here waiting for the sunshine to ease my pain
Working on nothing, just wasting my time away
Will I settle for the world and the memories that I’ve made
Or will I listen to my heart and open my eyes for a change

Chorus

Cause life is just a little too short
To really even worry at all
Our plans and our schemes
Often turn into dreams
Won’t you tell me what you’re waiting for

Life is just a little too short
To really even worry at all
We hope and we strive
We’re so busy with our lives
We forget what we’re here for

Bridge

And it’s all fun and games until yesterday turns you into a world class fool
There’s nobody to blame yourself

Get your hands out your pockets and your eyes on the prize if you really want to get it done
Just be true to yourself

Chorus

Life is just a little too short
To really even worry at all
Our plans and our schemes
Often turn into dreams
Tell me what you’re waiting for

Life is just a little too short
To really even worry at all
We hope and we strive
We’re so busy with our lives
We forget what we’re here for

Ever since we started this musical endeavor, we’ve been working really hard on it. Practicing, writing, managing, traveling etc. And it’s been amazing and awesome! But even when you chase your dream you can be blinded by it, and forget about something even more important in life.

To enjoy the hell out of it!

Cause nobody knows why we are here, how we got here or what we should do with the time that we have. But we do know one thing: life is short, and it feels good to enjoy every moment of it!

So don’t get to caught up in your own plans, however ‘awesome’ they may be 😉
