You Only Live Once



Watch the minutes turn to seconds downward spiral we devolve to barely crawl

But the speed with which the hours accumulate harness the powers takes decades

Like a lama in a fire a pariah and a liar and sheikh

One’s got money, one’s religious, one’s a monster, one’s a sweetheart

They’re all fake



You don’t wanna make me run

You got to make it matter take it right now

No need to fight what’s done is done

You gonna make me love you



I got a time share in Boca Raton with a beautiful view for your wife and your child

But I got too much pride to take a dive to pay for groceries I can’t afford to buy

Invest that 401K in swamp land fill waste where you can decay I mean retire

Take your little nest egg you worked all your life to put away and light it on fire



You don’t wanna make me run

You got to make it matter take it right now

No need to fight what’s done is done

You only live once



You got to make the most of it

Our time is limited

100 years a couple of months and you only live once



Remember that 5 minutes where we sat through that person’s bullshit

We could never get that 5 minutes back

I remember that first instant when I first saw you I knew I loved you

2 months later you eventually loved me back



You don’t wanna make me run

You got to make it matter take it right now

No need to fight what’s done is done

You gonna make me love you



You don’t wanna make me run

You got to make it matter take it right now

No need to fight what’s done is done

Why we play music:

For the love of it. Because we’re hungry. To make people happy and dance. To make all the pretty girls cry. Because we’re high. Because we’re low. Because we’re drunk or ascetic. Because we can’t in good conscience do anything else. ... more
