Live Large


Live life large
Drink it in
We’re not in charge
It won’t happen again
Take the plunge
Love and lose
We cannot own
The things we choose
But one thing is certain
For you and I
At life’s final curtain
We’re going to die

So live life large
Take a deep breath
We’re not in charge
Of life or death
Make your calling
And election sure
Then live in knowing
You are secure
And love today
What of tomorrow
Life is a fray
Of laughter and sorrow

So live life large
Touch someone’s hand
We’re not in charge
I understand
But we all need
Someone to hold
Go plant a seed
Be brave and bold
It’s a small drink
For you and I
Life is a wink
And then we die
