Lyrics

Far away as my eyes can see
Beauty lies right in front of me
Children play and smile at everyone
They don’t know that soon the day will come
 
When they’ll be alone
To face what’s to come on their own
So here is my advice, it’s up to them to decide
 
You’ll have to take responsibility
If you are to determine what you’ll be
It won’t be easy if you don’t try
Nothing is free, you’ll soon learn why
 
That’s simply life, it never, never stops (4)
No one has a free ride (2)
 
And so the years went by
I grew to see that it was true
That nothing is as easy as it seems
 
We have to struggle hard
Sometimes we face deadlines
And yet we always seem to make it right on time
And that’s simply life – it never, never stops
 
And then we saw the fire come
It could be any house – even mine
We saw it all in flames
I wondered who’d be next
And then it came to me
 
No matter how hard we try
We cannot change what is to come
We simply ride it out
And hope that we’ll survive
 
My life is set in stone
And I will carry on, to meet my destiny
