From “Like It Or Not” (2001)

by Bob Malone

You’re starin’ down the barrel of another 9 to 5
Thinkin’ there must be more to living than to just survive
You put another dreary day out of it’s misery
As if you have so many days to spare, that you can give ’em away for free

Well life ain’t long it just seems that way
You better get what you want before it gets too late
Because the day that you die is just a day too late to change

CHORUS
Tomorrow can’t be trusted
Listen here to what I say
Tomorrow can’t be trusted
With what you’re putting off today…

You put another book back up on the self-help shelf
But you can’t help wonderin’ why those books never seem to help
Well there ain’t no psychological philosophy that’s ever gonna get you through
‘Cause with the job and the house and the kids and the spouse, you never leave any time for you

‘Cause life ain’t long it just seems that way
You ain’t got enough time to waste it being afraid
Because the day that you die is just a day too late to change

CHORUS

BRIDGE
And I know life is hard – but it ain’t impossible
And when it comes to bein’ happy – only you’re responsible
And we’ve all got a job to do – and that’s a truth you can’t outrun
But there’s a whole lot more to living than just makin one…

CHORUS
