lyrics

I'll lie to myself as I'm lying in bed
This is as good as it's ever gonna get
And I'll tell my children this cautionary tale
In the hopes that they'll find themselves out there

See time's just a weight that's holding you down
And money's fake it won't save you somehow
And to those that might say I'm an old fool
Just ask yourself can you take it with you when you're gone

If you're gonna live in this world there's some things you should know
Love's all you need to keep yourself whole
And all the temporary vices you'll find
Will break you down if you give them your time

So live for yourself
But help when you can
This life's too short for dissatisfaction

I'll lie to myself as I'm lying in bed
This is as good as it's ever gonna get
