Thrive


If I were dead
Or if I were gone
Should I go extinct
Oh, would it be so wrong
At times
When the cold wind blows
I hear its song
It’s like – you know
A Lullaby
Singing
Goodbye my love goodbye

If I were alive
Or were I in sight
If I were thriving
Oh, would it be so right
At times
When a warm breeze blows
I see the night
It’s like – Lovely to see
So lovely in me
Singing
Let it be

Though there be joy
Though there be sadness
Though there be crying
Let there be gladness
In all of the world
So much sorrow
Live for today
Die tomorrow
In all of the world
So much wonder
Laugh like you’re crazy
Live like you’re thunder

If I were dead
Or were I alive
I’d be who I am
And baby, I’d thrive!

Death will be your final victory over life
Rejoice, for victory comes even as you live
Spread your arms and embrace the future
