Before We Know It

So believe it or not, this song was actually inspired from watching the Jim Carrey movie, “The Truman Show,” and if you’ve ever seen it or know what it’s about, then you’ll understand how the first line of this song was inspired by it. But then it just sort of took on its own life from there. So honestly I barely even remember what’s in the beginning of it now. I really should learn to re-read my work before posting it. I just get excited. So here it is. Hope you like it! 

What if this world was just a giant prison cell?

Would we surrender or would we try to free ourselves?

What if the heavens were nothing more

Than a fantasy?

What if the seven wonders are nothing more

Than make believe.

And what if true love is simply

A made-up way to make it through the days

What if our lives were only

A tick of time, a forgotten speck in space.

It’s all relative

So instead of wasting a precious life

I say we choose to live

I choose to live

I choose to love

Even if I do not understand

I’ll forget

I’ll forgive

The bitterness, the power’s in my hands

Before we know it

Our wrinkled eyes will wish they saw more sun

Before we know it

Our tired limbs will wish they still could run

Before we know it

Our lives will be done

So make the most of it

While we’re young.

What if the reason the seasons always change

Is because without them, the world would seem mundane

What if  Autumn leaves fall

Because their trees can’t stand the pain

Of holding on

For so long

And what if our hearts did the same?

So I choose to live

I choose to love

Even if choose to let it go

I’ll forget

And I’ll forgive

And be a petal on this thorn-filled rose

Because before we know it

Our wrinkled eyes will wish they saw more sun

Before we know it

Our tired limbs will wish they still could run

Before we know it

Everything we had to do we’d have already done

I choose to live

I choose to love

I choose to be the man  I can

Be, who I’ve been dreaming of

I will forget

I forgive

And I will be the greatest gift

This world could ever give

Before we know it

Life will only be

The memories

We chose to keep

Before we know it

Our sun will set

And life will reset

But we’ll have no regrets

Before we know it

Before we know it

Before we know it.
