I was sitting around
Just pondering time
Wondering when it might be mine
When I started thinking of things that I’d done
I wondered if I would be better to run
I’ve done some things that I’m not proud
A few of them made my dad get quite loud
I’ve done some others that make me stand tall
Things like that don’t make me feel small
When I think about running from things gone bad
I look around me and it makes me feel sad
I see people that don’t get a chance
Never has life given a dance
When that door opens and hand is extended
Take and embrace it as God has intended
Learn from our past, it will make us strong
And dance with a smile to life’s beautiful song
