We knew tomorrow what we know today
If we knew the arrows we’d have to play
If we knew the horrors we would have to face.
We’d share our dreams with the right parlays,
If we’d told our loved ones how far we’d stray
If we’d lived our lives as though we cared.
We’d taken the trouble to share,
Communities forming everywhere
Around our hearts
Filled with love,
If only we still had time
To decide every day how we should live
To live freely as though we were ours
To choose the path closest to our hearts.
To live, to cherish, to be.
