My Way


Ordinary
If I had my life to live over again
I would make it less ordinary

Abandon the safety of black & white
and live it in shades of grey

Look in the shadows
for what the light hides

Drown in the moment
not stay afloat for tomorrow

Throw away the umbrella
to dance in the rain

Gamble my heart
even with a poor hand

And I would warble
like an off-key Sinatra, that
I
did
it
my
way
