Rick Imamoto - 18 March 2003

 

You've come this far down a rocky road
You did your best while carrying your load
You say it's greener on the other side
But it's just an illusion giving you a ride...

I doubt if it's as easy as it may seem
Although their lives may look like a dream
On every life a little rain must fall
Even the ones who have it all...

Don't let your heart grow bitter
Or end up lost in regret
It's not about getting what you want
It's about wanting what you get...

Sometimes things can happen
Beyond what we understand
Sometimes it's just a mystery
What lies within God's plan...

In spite of all the things in life
That can make us so very sad
You can lose yourself in what you lost
Or be grateful for what you've had...

Don't let your heart grow bitter
Or end up lost in regret
It's not about getting what you want
It's about wanting what you get...
