Find a good laugh,
And for what you can,
No matter when,
Always love more than you hate,
And give more than you take,
And take your chance without the fear of its fate.
And to yourself always stay true,
But don't make time for those who don't make time for you.
And when you're lost in the darkest night,
Always believe that you will find yourself in a brighter days light,
Where you will always fight the good fight,
For what you know is right.
Care not for what they think,
For they don't have your dreams,
And with them always live your life beyond measure,
And spend your time for all of its treasure.
Because with hate you must believe there is love,
For there's always water in blood,
And if you never give up,
You'll be happy enough,
Because when our efforts are beyond measure,
This life is truly a brilliant treasure.
