headed for a headstone

I've had this video in a folder titled 'blog' and just didn't know when I would post it.  Now seems as good time as any.  My takeaway from this song:  You better be truly living.  Life is too grand.  And this is the only one you've got.


he said baby what’s the big deal
feel what you wanna feel
say what you’re gonna say
you’re gonna die one day

for example I could kiss you
just because I want to
what’s the difference if you turn away
I’m gonna die one day

why do you waste your time
thinkin bout your reputation
trying to meet an expectation
wonderin what they’re gonna say
when everyone you ever known
is headed for a headstone
I don’t wanna give the end away
but we’re gonna die one day

your body is an animal
doesn’t ask for much
a little music and a soft touch
why don’t you let it out to play
your heart is in a bird cage
singing in your chest

you wanna shut it up, but give it a rest
you’re gonna die one day

why do you waste your time
thinkin bout an obligation
runnin from a confrontation
wonderin what you oughtta say
when everyone you ever known
is headed for a headstone
I don’t wanna give the end away
but we’re gonna die one day

so baby what’s the big deal
if you wanna be free
say what you wanna feel
and spend the night with me

I’m gonna take you up in my arms
and if we must go down
we’ll go singin to the smoke alarms
we’ll dance into the ground
