Song For Anyone
Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth;
oh nevermind; you will not understand the power of truth
But trust me, in 20 years you'll look back at photos of yourself
and recall in a way you can't grasp, the wealth
now how much possibility lay before your health
you and how fabulous you really looked....
You are not as fat as you imagine.
Don't worry about the future; or worry,
but know that worrying is as
effective as trying to solve an algebra equation whilst being in a hurry
The real troubles in your life are apt to be things who
had never crossed your worried mind; say
the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.
Do one thing everyday that inspires you
Don't be reckless with other people's hearts,
don't put up with people who are reckless with your past.
Remember the compliments you receive,
forget the insults, if you succeed
Keep your old love letters, throw away the old newspaper cuttings
Don't feel guilty if you don't know what
you want to do with your life...
most of the people I know didn't know at 21
even by then they end up with none.
Be kind to your fingers, you'll miss them when they're gone.
(Don't miss use them, and don't bite your nails)
Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't,
maybe you'll have children, maybe you can't
maybe you'll divorce at 30,
maybe you'll dance the moonwalk on your 25th wedding anniversary...
what ever you do, congratulate yourself as well as an other
too much or too less, thats where it comes down to your mother
your choices are half chance, so are everybody else's.
Enjoy your body, and what comes with it
use it every way you can... each day
don't be afraid of it, or what other people think of it,
it's the greatest instrument you'll ever play..
'Dance' to the music ...even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own bedroom.
'Read' the directions ...even if you don't follow them.
and what ever you do, don't try and read the beauty magazines
they will only make you feel ugly. and so people will properly tease
Get to know your parents,
you never know when they may not be around
Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past
and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.
even when things look like they won't last.
Understand that friends come and go,
but for the precious few you should get to know.
Accept certain truths,
prices will rise,
I too will get old,
and when I do, I'll remember the times I was young
I try not to mess too much with my hair,
cause by the time I'm 40, it will look 82.
and that applies to you too.
Be careful whose advice you are buying,
be patient with those who are supplying,
why can't you believe that some of us may be lying.
