Life is What you Make it

Life is what you make it

We live on borrowed time

But if life is what we make it

Then it’s time that I make mine


Hide your sorrow in your pocket

To prepare for rainy days

Wear your laughter in a locket

For the times your happy frays


I promise you’ll find happiness

Like a flower on your chin

But you’ll also live with loneliness

if you choose to let it in


See, we have to know the darkness

To appreciate the light

Like a night that’s black and starless

to await a new sunrise


Your time is what you make it

Like I’ve said to you before

So be careful how you spend it

For there’s so much to live for
